James Mason did a fine job.
GOBAMAGO
This not only has a top notch cast but fantastic plot based on an actual spy called "Cicero".....moves along very well and holds the interest all the way.

At the countess's home, he is able to negotiate with the Germans away from the scrutiny of either embassy.

I am a big James Mason fan and am so glad to see this vintage film available on the instant video format. James Mason, with his aristocratic demeanor is simply outstanding in this docudrama titled "FIVE FINGERS". Set during World War II - this 1952 film is the true story of an Albanian born man who was valet to a British ambassador in Turkey. With no interest in political affairs and desiring to improve his economic station in life, he embarks on his infamous and distinguished career of espionage - in which he sells 35 documents (to the Germans) which included the plans for D-Day. Receiving large sums of cash for his 'services', he solicits a destitute countess to hold his money for safe keeping, paying her a fee until he can save enough to go and live comfortably in Rio De Janeiro. He even invites her to go with him.

The film from start to finish reflects sophistication in front of as well as behind the cameras (with all external scenes filmed in the locales associated with the story).

There are some twists and turns throughout the film that continue to keep your interest with lots of intrique. As "Ulysses Diallo" (codenamed "Cicero" by the Germans) continues with confidence on his treacherous path of espionage, several things occur - 'little' obscure events that begin his downfall - things that in and of themselves have no meaning, one of which, is that of a housekeeper who can't seem to get her vacuum to start! What happens to this man at the end of it all is so ironic that it absolutely made for a perfect ending!

(Item of interest: This was reportedly one of Mason's favorite films.)

A highly recommended spy film - especially for James Mason fans.

Really well done. Intelligently presented and quite suspenseful. James Mason was one of the greats and had an unforgettable voice. Not at all like a James Bond story, this one is very real.

Terrific spy movie with superb performances and outstanding crackling dialogue. Some of the scenes look a bit cloudy as Fox Cinema Archives tries once again, but overall it's not a bad print. The trouble with Fox Cinema Archives is that this is the only way to obtain some of the 20th Century Fox films that are worth having in your collection, so either take their prints or do without.

I saw this movie way back when. It has stood time well. James Mason is marvelous and the issues that arise are present still in the 21st century. In other words, I find it engrossing.

"5 Fingers" should be better known than it is. Its golden touch was applied by Joseph Mankiewicz, who knew how to write literate, witty scripts, produce movies, assemble the right kind of talent (such as Bernard Herrmann for music), and direct the right actors for their parts: here, James Mason, Danielle Darrieux, and Michael Rennie in the leads. Even the supporting cast, essential for this movie, are perfect. The story is based on the nearly incredible fact that the Nazi high command outfoxed itself by refusing to act on vital, leaked Allied battle plans because it believed they were bogus. To that twist, Mankiewicz adds a few more of his own creation. This is not a great film, but it's a very good one: the sort that studios like 20th Century Fox once turned out as part of its annual product, which today leaves almost everything at your local cinema in the shade.

This is the type of espionage movie in the same genre as The Spy Who Came in From the Cold in the sense it smacks of truth. There are no winners or heroics in this movie, just the money. James Mason at his best and supposedly based on a true story. Not a shoot em' up or blow em' up movie.

Since reviews are personal and different for just about everyone, I don't feel the need to go into great detail. I have seen many of James Mason's movies and will see many more. A tremendous/natural talent. Not forced. One of the best actors of his or any era I have observed. I have seen this particular movie two times. An excellent movie based on an true story with just an outstanding ending.

Exciting espionage story set during the seond World War that is well-written and well-directed with an excellent international cast. James Mason plays the part of a career valet to upper-class Europeans who dominate the diplomatic corps. While working for the English ambassador to neutral Turkey, he decides to sell military secrets to the Germans so that he can finally live the life of a landed gentlemen, instead of just serving them. He finds an accomplice in a disenfranchised Polish countess ( Danielle Darrieux) whose has lost everything in the war in the way of land and money, but none of her beauty or charm.
These two clever and conniving emblems of old European greed and decadence outsmart everybody (almost) with their plan to score big and flee to Buenos Aries. James Mason's character is finally detected at the end by the British and the chase is on.
Based on a true story with some nice location shooting in Istanbul and Ankara. Just a good story and good movie-making.
