Why would anyone keep them?
"Why does man keep anything in the
sense of a historic nature," Otto re-
sponds. "What we're really trying to

MOSCOW - Pravda's movie critic
laments the lack of good Soviet spy
movies even though there are "excit-
ing real life models." "A strange
calm has descended on this theme -
the theme of the invisible struggle of
the bold undercover agent," V.
Demin wrote Thursday in the Com-
munist party newspaper.
"As a lover of intrigue, I scan the
movie listings in vain." Demin said
histories, novels and stories about
spies are being published all the
time, but the imagination of film-
makers seems to have run dry, even
though there -are--exciting real-life
miodels for therh to imitate.
"It may sound paradoxical," De-
min said, "but spy films, with all
their fantasy, often present the real
world much better than other kinds

been three "waves" of spy films in

made up a large part of what he calls

movie output, he said.
The first wave of spy movies, in the
1950s, introduced the genre and
developed the stock plots and charac-
ters - "the searches, arrests and
disappearances underground, the at-
tempts to rescue friends and the bold,
lucky escapes with the aid of an inter-
national detachment of partisans."'
in the 1960s the spy movie became
more cosmopolitan, and moral ques-
tions were introduced.
In the early 1970s, spy films took on
a documentary appearance, inter-
twining fact and fiction. in realistic
settings. The high point of this wave
was the highly popular television ser-
ial "Seventeen Moments of Spring."
