The Fixer

The Fixer (1968)

Director: John Frankenheimer
Screenplay: Dalton Trumbo (based on a novel by Bernard Malamud)
Role: Bibikov

Dirk again plays a defence counsel representing a doomed prisoner, this time a persecuted Russian Jew (Alan Bates). To Dirk’s dismay, the dialogue from Malamud’s story was rewritten, and left the role of Bibikov poorly conceived and limited.
