Red King, White Knight is a 1989 spy thriller television film starring Tom Skerritt, Max von Sydow, and Helen Mirren. It was written by Ron Hutchinson and directed by Geoff Murphy. It was broadcast in the United States on 25 November 1989.


The CIA hears of a KGB scheme to assassinate the Soviet General Secretary and enlists Stoner, an agent retired for 10 years, to go to Russia to investigate. He verifies the plot, but then has trouble leaving the country. In the meantime, the U.S. policy makers struggle over whether or not to inform the Soviets of the plot. Stoner's problems are complicated by the renewal of an affair with Anna, a Russian, as he tries to convince her to defect.



The television film was filmed in Budapest, Hungary and Washington D.C.[1]
