- This is a black and white movie [108 min] from 1952. It is an interesting movie based on a true WW2 story which took place in neutral Turkey. The British actor James Mason plays as "Cicero", an Albanian named Elyesa Bazna. During WW2 Elyesa Bazna took military information from the British and sold it to the Germans who paid him with counterfeit British pounds. "Cicero" had no idea the Germans were paying him with fake paper money, I think he found the truth only after WW2. Note: "Cicero" also gave information to the Germans about the Allied missions to bomb the Romanian oil fields from the town of Ploesti ["Ploiesti" - in Romanian language]. To read more about this real WW2 spy with the code-name "Cicero" see here at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elyesa_Bazna Orita 12/14/05
