Teheran

Conspiracy in Teheran
The Plot to Kill Roosevelt

1946

Poorly made spy rubbish about an attempt by Nazi agents to kill FDR at the Teheran Conference. Looks like someone read an Eric Ambler novel and decided to make a spy movie, while neglecting important things, like the script. Farr is no one's idea of an action hero and Labarr is a cold fish. Only Whiley's villain and Slater's stereotypical Soviet have any life, and in a good movie, they would be considered the worst bits. Interesting as an example of early postwar film making, but nothing else.

Note: Marta Labarr is not credited on the print used.
