Review: Had no idea if I was going to enjoy Man on a String from 1960, but I had a good idea that Ernest Borgniine, ( Boris Mitrov) would put his heart and soul into his role and he did just that through out the entire film. This was a true story concerning a man who was called Borris Morras, and in this picture was called Boris Mitrov a double agent between the United States and Russia during the Cold War Era. Boris Mitrov is a successful Hollywood producer who was born in Russia and got himself involved with Russian Spys who were willing to bring his father and brothers back from Russia to his home in Los Angeles. However, Boris Mitrov is being watched by our Government Agents and they decided to enlist Boris to become a double agent for the United States in order to be cleared of the charges for espionage against the U.S. There is plenty of suspense and this story takes many twists and turns.
