Garbo the Spy

Friday, November 18, 2011

Spanish filmmaker Edmon Roch talks about his new film, “Garbo the Spy.” It’s about Juan Pujol Garcia, clever enough to fool both the Nazis and the Allies as the ultimate double agent. He was code named GARBO because he was considered a master thespian by the Allies. He was responsible for the successful outcome of D Day, and he wrote endless journals that have helped explain the movement of the war.
