"Life Of Reilly: The Super Spy" episode from A&E's acclaimed Vanishings Series
- Release Date: 1983
At the turn of the 20th century, one remarkable man single-handedly tried to alter the course of history. Cold, ruthless and enigmatic, this Russian-born British agent radically transformed modern espionage techniques and set the mold for a new kind of secret agent--the super spy.
REILLY: ACE OF SPIES is the thrilling dramatization of the real-life adventures of Agent ST-1, aka Sidney Reilly, the inspiration behind Ian Fleming's James Bond. Shot in glorious period detail, one heart-pulsing mission after another captures the arc of Reilly's brilliant career. From stealing top-secret Russian oil information to a near overthrow of the Bolshevik Revolution to his final capture by Stalin's forces in 1918, Reilly's exploits are at times so daring and reckless it's hard to believe they really happened.
Starring Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, The Hunt for Red October), REILLY: ACE OF SPIES includes all 12 original episodes on DVD for the first time, and features a bonus documentary examining the final, mysterious days of this legendary figure.
