5.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling rogue operation, October 2, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Rhinemann Exchange (DVD)
"The Rhinemann Exchange" was the first adaptation of a Robert Ludlum book to film. It was also one of the first TV miniseries, and the cast is a Who's Who of 70's television stardom.

David Spaulding (Stephen Collins) had a very cosmopolitan upbringing thanks to his father, a world famous concert pianist. He has lived in cities around the world, is fluent in several languages, and has an engineering degree. All of this makes him a desirable recruit for US Army Intelligence in the early days of World War II.

After proving himself during an assignment in Spain, David Spaulding is hand picked as the only suitable candidate for a below the radar operation code named Tortuga.

The Germans are desperate for industrial diamonds for their V2 rocket, and the Americans are equally desperate to get a better gyroscope for their bombers. A rogue exchange is brokered, and scheduled to take place in the neutral city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. A mission so controversial that his superiors won't even entrust Spaulding with the true nature of the exchange for fear he would refuse the assignment.

In Buenos Aires it seems everyone knows more about Spaulding's msision than he does. He finds himself targeted by the Americans, Germans, and even Haganah as he struggles to learn the truth and complete his task.

The DVD is divided into three chapters corresponding with the original three night airing of the miniseries in 1977. From the DVD package, this is full frame 1:33:1; approximately 4 hours and 8 minutes; Dolby Mono 2.0 English soundtrack, and English SDH subtitles. There are no bonus or special features.

Recommended.
