Code Name: Emerald ★ 1985 (PG)

WWII drama in which an American agent must stop an enemy spy with knowledge of impending DDay invasion. Conventional TV fare boasts a fine performance by von Sydow, but Stolz is hopelessly miscast as an adult. Perhaps the only film featuring both Buchholz and Berger. First feature film by NBCTV network. 95m/C VHS . Ed Harris, Max von Sydow, Eric Stoltz, Horst Buchholz, Helmut Berger, Cyrielle Claire, Patrick Stewart, Graham Crowden; D: Jonathan Sanger; W: Ronald Bass; M: John Addison.
