1962. Just after the Bay of Pigs affair, an important member of the KGB defects to the United States. He reveals to John Forsythe, a US C.I.A. agent, how to obtain secret papers about the Cuba-USSR armed friendship. Forsythe asks his friend André Devereaux, a member of the french Secret Service, to help him get these informations. Devereaux flies to Cuba and, thanks to Karin Dor, the widow of a Hero of the Cuban Revolution and his lover, gets the proof that nuclear weapons are stocked in the cuban island. Boris Kusenov, the KGB defector, also reveals that important french officials are working for the U.S.S.R. and form an organization called TOPAZ. Devereaux returns to France in order to unmask it.
It's not a good movie but it contains some Hitchcock ingredients worthy to stay in the annals. For fans of the english master only.
