: The Saturday Thriller: Five Fingers

Feature films with suspense, danger, excitement
Starring James Mason, Danielle Darrieux, Michael Rennie
with Walter Hampden, Oscar Karlweis, Herbert Berghof

This is a tense spy film based on the true story of Cicero - one of the most treacherous Nazi spies of the second world war who, as valet to the British Ambassador in Turkey, intercepted several vital war secrets. The storyline is fast and exciting, and the film's ending contains a wryly amusing twist. Cicero once worked as Countess Anna Staviska's butler, but she is now the object of his affections and the reason for his need for money.
James Mason is ideally cast as Cicero, and the beautiful French actress Danielle Darrieux plays the countess. Five Fingers is directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, a highly literate creative talent, also responsible for last week's Saturday Thriller, House of Strangers. Another of his films, the famous Bette Davis vehicle All About Eve, will soon be seen on BBC-tv.


Screenplay: Michael Wilson
Producer: Otto Lang
Director: Joseph L. Mankiewicz
Cicero: James Mason
Anna: Danielle Darrieux
George Travers: Michael Rennie
Sir Frederic: Walter Hampden
Moyzisch: Oscar Karlweis
Col. Von Richter: Herbert Berghof
Von Papen: John Wengraf
Siebert: A. Ben Astar

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
