Man on a String is a spy thriller based on the true-life adventures of a real counter-spy Boris Morros (dubbed Boris Mitrov here), played by Ernest Borgnine. I liked the film but Ernest Borgnine is not convincing as a Russian. Man on a String is a Cold War relic, but interesting viewing nonetheless.★★★
