Product Description

Fact-based story about a 90's espionage case that was chronicled as the worst case of espionage in US history. Aldrich Ames was a middle class CIA agent, whose problems with alcohol and general ineptness had kept him from rising further in the ranks of the agency. Nonetheless he ran an indispensable effort recruiting Soviet double-agents and tracking their whereabouts. Faced with rising bills and an extravagant wife, who finds ways to run up major bills, Aldrich finds himself far in debt and trying to find a way out. He makes a decision to sell a couple of minor names to the Soviets to gain cash. Soon they want more and are willing to spend large amounts to get the names.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: VHS Tape
I watched this on television late one night. I though it was reasonably good, for a made-for-tv movie. Timothy Hutton is a vastly underrated actor, who never seems to play parts that are substantial enough for him to show off his abilities (Ordinary People and Nero Wolff, notwithstanding). This is less a review than a request for this to be on DVD. There are countless movies on DVD of inferior quality to this. This is reasonably entertaining fare.
