The Spy Who Came In From The Cold (Criterion Collection) (1965)

But when he unexpectedly falls for a Communist librarian, his mission--and her life--are placed in jeopardy.

Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English (SDH); bonus documentary "John Le Carre: The Secret Centre" (2000); interviews; photo gallery; theatrical trailer. Two-disc set.
