At the turn of the 20th century, one remarkable man single-handedly tried to alter the course of history. Sidney Reilly was a Russian-born British agent who radically transformed modern espionage techniques and set the mold for the super spy. From one heart-pulsing mission after another, from stealing top-secret Russian oil information to a near overthrow of the Bolshevik Revolution to his final capture by Stalin's forces in 1918, Reilly's exploits are at times so daring, it's hard to believe they are actural history.
Special features: "Life of Reilly: Superspy" episode from A & E's acclaimed 'Vanishing's' series.
