    hi all,



    I was half asleep when I watched this late last night, yet I enjoyed it very much.

    I may have missed a couple of things





    Three questions



    At the end, when all the "old Germans" have been caught, Quiller goes to the school where he met Inga...



    1) Was she "one of them"? I wondered this when they kept her hostage, and even thought she might have been part of their operation... trying to trap him...

    Did he realise this... and let it pass because they had fallen in love?





    2) Was it co-incidence that he met her in the first place.. and she happened to know someone who knew something about the old German operation...

    Was there something in the information given to him in the bar at the beginning of the film?



    3) What actually was the "Quiller memorandum"?



    thanks... with apologies if I'm being slightly stupid..



    Good film.



    cheers

    Austin

    You are right solar, a good film - I can't remember details like you quote only that I enjoyed it; so I can't help you - BUT someome on this site will!!!!



    Guess what I watched on Saturday night; one of the warmest nights this year? Yep, you guessed it! 'The Day the Earth Caught Fire', phew! I must have drank a gallon of water! (Thanks to Aphra for the video). [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/cool.gif[/img]

    Hi Solar - one of my all time fave films!



    Inge was part of the Neo-Nazi organisation, and as a consequence wasn't actually held captive at all, it was just a ruse to try and persuade Quiller to reveal MI6's headquarters and to tell them how much he knew about their operation. This is somewhat tenuous - there was little reason to keeping Quiller alive once he was captured and had seen everyone's faces!



    It was no coincidence that Quiller met Inge - he had a lead that the school where she was a teacher was habouring Neo-Nazis - the headmistress was one as was the person who Inge replaced when he was outed in a newspaper article.



    As far as the name "The Quiller Memorandum" - I think it was answered in Adam Hall's book but it is 15 years since I read it so I just can't remember!



    Cheers!

    One of my favourite films of all time, a close tie with The Ipcress File.

    Like sanndevil, it was too long ago that I read the book!!!

    Alec Guinness is very 'Smiley'
