  • Duel d'espions (The Scarlet Coat) est un film américain réalisé par John Sturges en 1955.
  • The Scarlet Coat is an Eastmancolor CinemaScope 1955 American historical drama and swashbuckler directed by John Sturges, based upon the events in the American Revolution in which Benedict Arnold offered to surrender the fort at West Point to the British in exchange for money. The film purports to tell the story of the creation of the "American Secret Service", and weaves a spy/counterspy tale in which British and American counterparts, played by Michael Wilding as Major John André and Cornel Wilde, as John Bolton, unaware that each is attempting to outsmart the other for the sake of their countries, deal with issues of honour, loyalty, and friendship. There is also some rivalry between the men for the love of a fictional beautiful woman (Anne Francis). Though, in real life, André and Major Benjamin Tallmadge, the model for Bolton, did meet shortly before André was to be hanged as a spy (Talmadge's regiment of light dragoons was charged with guarding André) and did develop a kind of friendship, it was not the longer-term and deeper friendship suggested in the film. Bolton betrays this friendship in the film, but Karl Tunberg's script ameliorates that difficulty by having Bolton make attempts to save Andre's life. Another important departure from reality is that, in an earlier part of the film, André actually does save Bolton's life, something which never occurred. The real Major Talmadge, whose code name as master of the Culper Spy Ring was "John Bolton," never undertook spy activities out of uniform, as André did.Wilding's character, Major André, is treated sympathetically in the film, while Wilde's fictional Major Bolton, based loosely, as noted, on Major Tallmadge, is portrayed as more ruthless, particularly in the brutality he employs to accomplish his objectives. The script is noted for its even-handedness in depicting both sides of the conflict.
