LEAMAS:     We counted on Fiedler, I must admit, on his hatred for Mundt.

                  Why the hell shouldn't he hate Mundt? Mundt hates him. [...]

 

FIEDLER:    Save the girl. Save the Jews. Save my Christian soul!

                  Don't you realise what he has done?

                  He's saved Mundt, and Mundt is London's man! 

 

COURT:      Comrade Fiedler will be held in custody.

                  The hearing is closed. [...]

                  Comrade Mundt is reinstated.

                                             (THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD, 1965 film)

 

Merchant of Venice in an East Berlin setting?

 

Best,

Joe Egert
