The Spider and the Fly is a thriller, set in France just before and during World War I. Inspector Fernand Maubert (Eric Portman) is plagued by inept functionaries and blustering politicians. He is far more impressed by the safecracker Philippe de Ledocq (Guy Rolfe), a man whose dedication to his craft fully matches Maubert’s, despite him operating on the wrong side of the law. But Maubert is convinced that this can be changed, given the right circumstances – such as a vital espionage job for the French government.
The Advertisement is in very good condition with a vertical centre fold with 2 staple holes along it.
