The Assassination Bureau Limited
The Assassination Bureau Limited (also known as The Assassination Bureau in the United States) is a 1969 UK Technicolor black comedy adventure film directed by Basil Dearden and starring Oliver Reed, Diana Rigg, Telly Savalas, and Curd Jürgens. It was produced by Michael Relph. It is based on an unfinished novel, The Assassination Bureau, Ltd by Jack London, posthumously published in 1963. Unlike London's novel, which is set in the United States, the film is set in Europe. It was released in the U.S. by Paramount Pictures.
In London, during the early 1900s, aspiring journalist and women's rights campaigner Sonia Winter (Diana Rigg) uncovers an organisation that specialises in killing for money, the Assassination Bureau Limited. To bring about its destruction, she commissions the assassination of the bureau's own chairman, Ivan Dragomiloff (Oliver Reed).
