Known Trivia

  • According to Steven Spielberg in a press release for the movie, Gregory Peck came after the story in 1965. Alec Guinness agreed to play Abel, Gregory Peck would play Donovan, and Stirling Silliphant would write the script. MGM declined to make the movie at the time. It was 1965, Cold War tensions were high with Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis, and MGM was reluctant to get into the politics of the story. 75 of 75 found this interesting Interesting?

  • As seen in the film, Soviet agent Rudolph Abel received coded messages from his KGB handlers that were hidden inside a hollow U.S. nickel. The FBI first became aware of Abel’s activities in 1953, when a Soviet agent mistakenly used one of the hollow nickels to buy a newspaper. The Brooklyn newsboy who had received the nickel thought it felt too light. He dropped the nickel on the sidewalk, and it popped open, revealing a piece of microfilm with a coded message inside. But FBI cryptologists were unable to crack the code until 1957, when a KGB defector, Reino Heyhanen, gave them the key to deciphering the code, and also gave up Rudolph Abel. The “Hollow Nickel Case” was also dramatized in The FBI Story (1959), starring James Stewart. 63 of 63 found this interesting Interesting? Yes No |
  • According to Tom Hanks in a press release for the movie, when James Donovan makes arguments to the Supreme Court about Rudolf, the words used in the movie were the same as the arguments presented to the Supreme Court. 87 of 88 found this interesting Interesting? Yes No |
  • James B. Donovan was an insurance attorney and presented the appearance of being misplaced in his role as defense attorney and negotiator. Unmentioned in the movie and in reality, he was formerly General Counsel for the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), formed under Franklin Roosevelt and William J. Donovan during WWII. The OSS was the direct predecessor of the CIA. There was no doubt he was well known and connected within the intelligence community. 54 of 54 found this interesting Interesting? Yes No |
  • The first Steven Spielberg film not to be scored by John Williams since The Color Purple (1985). In March 2015, after Williams’ schedule was interrupted by a minor health issue which reportedly has since been corrected, Thomas Newman stepped in to replace him as composer. 116 of 119 found this interesting Interesting?

  • Spielberg’s father actually went on a foreign exchange to Russia as an engineer during the cold war, right after Francis Gary Powers was shot down, when there was tremendous fear and hostility between the two nations. Spielberg’s father recalled seeing Russian citizens line up to look at Powers’ crashed gear and “see what America did.” When they saw the American engineers, they pointed at them and said, “Look what your country is doing to us,” demonstrating the fear and rage the nations felt towards each other. 88 of 92 found this interesting Interesting?

  • This is Tom Hanks’s fourth film collaboration with Steven Spielberg. They previously worked together on Saving Private Ryan (1998), Catch Me If You Can (2002) & The Terminal (2004). It is their first collaboration in over ten years. 116 of 123 found this interesting Interesting? Yes No |
  • Principal photography on “Bridge of Spies” began in September, 2014 and shot for 12 weeks on locations in New York, Germany and Poland, including many of the very places where the events in the story actually took place. European production kicked off in Berlin where the actual prisoner exchange of Abel and Powers took place. To film the crucial Berlin Wall sequences, production also traveled to Wroclaw, Poland which more accurately resembles the East Berlin of 1961 than Berlin itself. 59 of 62 found this interesting Interesting? Yes No |
  • Rudolf Abel’s seemingly incongruous accent was accurate. Abel was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne to Russian parents and spent some of his school age years in Scotland. He returned to Moscow in his late teens but never lost his accent when speaking English. 20 of 20 found this interesting Interesting? Yes No |
  • When Jim Donovan and Agent Huffman are in West Berlin, they walk past a German cinema where one of the movies playing is “Eins, Zwei, Drei.” This is the German title of the American Cold War comedy One, Two, Three (1961), directed by Billy Wilder. In the film, James Cagney plays an American business executive working in West Berlin who, like Donovan, must cross over into East Berlin and negotiate with Soviet officials for the release of a political prisoner. 34 of 36 found this interesting Interesting?

Written byGusde


Synopsis: Set in 1957, at the height of the Cold War, both the United States and Soviet Union employed spies against each other out of fear regarding the nuclear capabilities of one another.

In Brooklyn, Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance) is painting a self-portrait. He receives a phone call moments later. He never speaks but only listens to what he hears. Abel leaves his apartment and walks around the city, unaware of a man, Agent Blasco (Domenick Lombardozzi) stepping out of a cab to follow him. Blasco follows Abel through the subway station where he is joined by Agent Gamber (Victor Verhaeghe). Abel ends up at a park where he sits on a bench to paint. He recovers a coin under a bench. He returns to his apartment and uses a razor to split the coin open, where he finds that it contains a piece of paper. Soon, Blasco and Gamber, joined by other FBI agents, storm into Abel’s home and arrest him for espionage.

We meet lawyer James B. Donovan (Tom Hanks) in his workplace discussing a client with his co-worker. He is brought into the office of his associate Thomas Watters Jr (Alan Alda) to discuss the case of Abel. Donovan is given the report on Abel’s case, and Donovan knows what kind of reputation he would gain for defending a suspected spy.

Donovan has dinner with his wife Mary (Amy Ryan) and kids Carol (Eve Hewson), Roger (Noah Schnapp) and Peggy (Jillian Lebling). Carol is upset because her date stood her up. Donovan tells his family about the case, just as his other co-worker Doug Forrester (Billy Magnussen) enters with documents involving the case.

In a motel room, pilot Francis Gary Powers (Austin Stowell) is undergoing a lie detector test. Later, he and a group of fellow pilots are brought into a room where they are told their mission – they are to become spies for the CIA to detect any nuclear activity occurring in the Soviet Union.

Donovan meets with Abel in prison. Abel never admits to any wrongdoing and doesn’t want to fully cooperate with the United States government.

On a rainy night, Donovan is followed by CIA Agent Hoffman (Scott Shepherd). The two sit together at a bar where Hoffman tries to get Donovan to tell him what Abel is telling Donovan, for the sake of the country, though Donovan refuses to say anything.

The pilots are brought into the Peshawar Air Station to see the U-2 planes that they will use in their mission, complete with cameras and the like.

Roger’s class watches a video on the dangers of nuclear warfare and the precautions that ought to be taken in the event of a catastrophe. He then sets up his own "duck and cover" station at home, worrying his father.

Abel’s trial begins, and nobody is on Donovan’s side. The people in court think Abel deserves the death penalty for his supposed crimes, and nobody thinks Donovan can get Abel acquitted. On the train, everyone that Donovan sees is reading unkind headlines for his case, and one woman on the train looks at him scornfully. To make things worse, someone shoots at the Donovan home one evening, harming no one, but also not earning any sympathy for the family as most of the country thinks Donovan is a traitor.

By the end of the trial, Abel is found guilty on all charges, but Donovan convinces the judge to give him a 30 year prison sentence instead of the death penalty.

Powers and his comrades undergo their mission over the USSR. His plane suddenly takes a hit as it’s shot down by a ground-to-air missile. He goes soaring down but manages to eject himself from the plane and sail down on his parachute. Powers is later captured and held by the Soviet Union.

In West Germany, American student Frederic Pryor (Will Rogers) rides his bike by the construction site of the Berlin Wall, to meet his girlfriend Katje (Nadja Bobyleva). Pryor is confronted by East German Stasi agents who find him suspicious. He shows off his books to prove he is a student, but the man is subsequently arrested.

With both American men in detainment, an exchange is planned between the U.S. and USSR to trade Abel for Powers. However, Donovan thinks they should get Pryor back as well. The CIA only wants Powers back, but Donovan plans to make a negotiation regardless. He travels to East Germany to meet with Wolfgang Vogel (Sebastian Koch), a German lawyer who can broker a deal. Donovan meets three people posing as Abel’s family before meeting Vogel. Donovan sees through the ruse, however.

During his time in East Germany, Donovan is forced to stay in a cold and crummy hotel room. As he passes by the wall on the train, he sees several East Germans trying to climb over the wall to escape, but they are shot down by guards. The sight of this horrifies Donovan.

The East German government refuses to give up Pryor after learning that the USSR was involved in the negotiation. While the CIA thinks they should leave Pryor, Donovan makes a bold move by threatening the East German government. If Pryor is not released to them, the whole deal is off, and Abel would be interrogated, leaving bad blood between Germany and the USSR.

The men on both sides meet on the Glienicke Bridge. Powers’ buddy Joe Murphy (Jesse Plemons) is brought over to confirm that Powers is on the other side. Meanwhile at Checkpoint Charlie, Pryor is brought over. After he is confirmed, the exchange is made, and Abel crosses over to the other side, but not before letting Donovan know that he left him a gift. The two men share one final look before departing the bridge. On the plane ride, Powers tells Donovan that he never told his captors anything, to which Donovan states that none of it matters anymore. He then opens the gift from Abel, which is a painting of Donovan himself.

Donovan returns home to his family. The kids see the news story on the exchange and are shocked to hear their dad’s name mentioned, thinking he was away on a fishing trip. Mary then walks into the bedroom to find her husband lying there, resting comfortably at last.

Donovan rides the train where he sees people are now reading positive headlines. The lady who stared at him earlier now looks at him with a smile. As he looks out the window, he sees children climbing over a fence, reminding him of what he saw in Germany.

The ending text states that Rudolf Abel returned home and was never acknowledged as a spy. Francis Gary Powers died when his plane crashed in 1977. Frederic Pryor went on to become a professor at Swarthmore College. James B. Donovan was asked by President Kennedy to negotiate the release of 1,000 Cuban exile prisoners from Cuba after the failed 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion. He would eventually get over 9,000 men, women, and children released.
