Director: Anthony Asquith

Cast: Eddie Albert, Paul Massie, Lillian Gish, James Robertson Justice, Irene Worth, Leslie French, John Crawford


Starring Eddie Albert (Oklahoma!, The Joker is Wild), Paul Massie (The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll), James Robertson Justice (The Face of Fu Manchu), and Lillian Gish (Intolerance), Orders to Kill is a bruising, brilliant wartime espionage drama.

Based on a story by real-life spy Donald Downes, and co-scripted by another former spy, Paul Dehn (The Deadly Affair, Fragment of Fear), Anthony Asquith’s film follows an American airman sent into occupied France with orders to kill a suspected double agent... but the mission does not go according to plan.

Famous for its shocking violence and moral ambiguity, Orders to Kill won three BAFTA Awards, but caused a stir at the Cannes Film Festival due to its alleged ‘anti-American’ tone.
