Production Co: Alfred J. Runtime: min min edited. Color: Color Technicolor. With Universal pushing for filming to start in September, Samuel Taylor was quickly hired to write a new script from scratch after Arthur Laurents turned down an offer to do it.
Unusually for a Hitchcock film, as the director's time was now tied up with the other aspects of pre-production, face-to-face script meetings with Taylor happened only infrequently.
Struggling with converting the complexities of the novel, Taylor was unable to deliver a completed screenplay prior to the start of filming.
Shortly before principal photography began, the French Government withdrew permission to film in Paris, citing concerns about the film's premise that Soviet symphatisers had infiltrated the French intelligence agencies.
The U. Ambassador to France intervened and assured the authorities that their concerns would be taken on-board by Hitchcock. As a result, the script was amended to ensure that the traitor Granville was suitably punished at the end of the film.
The failure of Torn Curtain , for which a sizeable proportion of the budget was spent on securing Paul Newman and Julie Andrews , and the need for a large cast resulted in Hitchcock selecting less well-known actors for Topaz.
Filming commenced in September, with scenes shot in Copenhagen and Paris, before returning to the Universal sound stages in October.
With Taylor still working on the script, pages were often being revised right up until they were shot. By all accounts, filming suffered from the rushed pre-production process and, burdened with the stress of a complex and troubled film, Hitchcock lacked his usual spark.
John Forsythe , who had worked with the director previously, recalled that Hitchcock "would go away for fifteen or twenty minutes and lie down if he could, and it was sad to see.
Partway through the weeklong shoot in Paris, Hitchcock received word from Los Angeles that Alma had been suddenly hospitalised. Distraught, he flew back to America leaving Herbert Coleman to complete filming the scene.
The initial test screening in San Francisco during the summer of proved problematic. According to Bill Krohn , the preview audience was mostly made up of fans of the Leon Uris book and their "outrage was in the majority".
In particular, the duel ending which didn't appear in the book was greeted with derisive laughter. After viewing the new "airport ending", Samuel Taylor raised objections to the traitor being allowed to escape without punishment.
Taylor's concerns, and the risk of further objections from the French Government to the revised ending, persuaded Hitchcock to devise a further ending using existing footage.
In this second alternative ending, Granville  is shown returning to his house and apparently committing suicide.
This is then followed by a montage of the characters who died during the film, along with a newspaper headline about the Cuban missile crisis.
The "duel ending" was saved from the cutting-room floor by Hitchcock and stored in his garage, where it was discovered after his death and donated to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
According to Variety , the initial UK release print was accidentally based on a rough-cut of the film, using the "airport ending" before it was replaced with the "suicide ending".
Reviews of Topaz were mostly negative, with Richard Corliss in Film Quarterly noting "mismatched movements and lighting, clumsily speeded-up motion for no reason except to get a bit of exposition over with more quickly, poor dubbing, peripatetic matte shots, too-long dissolves, unnecessary crescendoes in the score.
Writing in The Times , John Russell Taylor stated that "Hitchcock, like all major film directors, has made his share of bad films.

Get some streaming picks. A high ranking Russian official defects to the U. Agent Michael Nordstrom. The defector reveals that a French spy ring codenamed "Topaz" has been passing N.
Michael calls in his French friend and counterpart Andre Devereaux to expose the spies. Topaz was the third from the last of the great Alfred Hitchcock's films and in those last few films Hitch eschewed using big American box office names.
No doubt he'd come to the conclusion that his was the biggest box office name on the credits. But if the leading and many of the supporting players were not known to American audiences they were certainly known to French audiences.
Topaz is certainly an international thriller with the action going from Copenhagen, to Harlem, to Cuba, and finally Paris.
Only Cuba was not shot on actual location for obvious reasons. The film is based on a spy novel surrounding the Cuban Missile Crisis.
A Russian defector whose defection with his family is very nicely shot in Copenhagen hints at some major problems coming our way in the Pearl of the Antillies.
Our biggest problem though is that because of the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion, we've got no real intelligence on the ground in Cuba.
What to do? Well if you're John Forsythe there's been a reason you've been cultivating the French for years.
He goes to Frederick Stafford of French intelligence and asks him to find out what's happening in Cuba. History in bares witness to what was happening in Cuba at that time, but also Stafford is concerned the Russians have a spy real high up in the French government, code name, Topaz.
There's a romantic angle here to, so very French. Stafford makes use of his mistress, a Cuban girl played by Karin Dor who wife Dany Robin has reasons to be suspicious of.
Then again she's not sitting home waiting for the grass to grow under her feet. She's having a fling with Michel Piccoli who is a friend of her husband.
International Geopolitics and romantic affairs are all tied together in this novel which Hitchcock serves up with his usual touch. What a sad end both the leads in this film had.
Frederick Stafford was killed in a plane crash in and Dany Robin and her husband died in an apartment house fire in Truly a cursed film.
Besides those mentioned look for good performances by John Vernon as a Castro aide and wannabe and from Roscoe Lee Browne who's an operator for French Intelligence in Harlem.
I kid you not. It's not one of Alfred Hitchcock's best films, but Topaz is entertaining enough and Hitchcock fans won't be disappointed. Looking for some great streaming picks?

Hitchcock absolvierte seinen obligatorischen Cameo-Auftritt in der Insgesamt sind in der Handlung, die in fünf verschiedenen Städten spielt, zehn etwa gleichgewichtige Hauptpersonen involviert, von denen keine die sonst für diese Filmgattung typischen heldenhaften Charakterzüge zeigt.
Hitchcock und Drehbuchautor Samuel A. Taylor arbeiteten auch noch während des Drehs am Drehbuch, nachdem die erste Fassung durch den Romanautor Leon Uris als unbrauchbar verworfen worden war.
Es wurden zwei zusätzliche Schlusssequenzen gedreht, die beide nicht verwendet wurden. Granville wurde jedoch von einem sowjetischen Attentäter aus dem Hinterhalt erschossen.
Diese Version wurde ursprünglich in England aufgeführt und seit auch in Deutschland mehrfach vom Fernsehen ausgestrahlt. Dem amerikanischen Geschmack entsprechend enthält es den Selbstmord von Jacques Granville; die Szene ist aber nicht gedreht worden, daher manipulierten die Studios das vorhandene Filmmaterial.
Man sieht dann schemenhaft eine Gestalt im Haus verschwinden, die man für Granville halten kann. Diese Einstellung wird als Standbild eingefroren, und ein Schuss ertönt.
The New York Times critic Vincent Canby put the film on his year-end list of the ten best films of and declared it a "huge success, a quirky, episodic espionage tale made rich and suspenseful, not through conventional Hitchcockian narrative drive, but through odd, perverse Hitchcockian detail, economy of cinematic gesture, and an over-all point of view that can never for a moment be mistaken as belonging to anyone but Hitchcock.
Other reviews were mixed to negative and usually faulted the film for lacking excitement. Variety wrote that it "tends to move more solidly and less infectiously than many of the maestro of menace's best remembered pix.
Yet Hitchcock has brought in a full quota of twists and tingling moments. It is just that the picture seems to move predictably and lacks the fun and surprise blood curdling moments that can lift his thrillers with breathtaking excitement.
It is known that Hitchcock had trouble with the climax and juggled three different endings ; but the one finally chosen for the commercial print here looks as if it could have been devised by anyone.
The awful truth is that Hitchcock would probably be better off if he retired. The most one can say for his direction of 'Topaz' is that it's polished: The compositions are symmetrical and the photography is glossy.
But if this is all it is, the film might as well be the work of a disinterested computer. Some American critics complained that there was no Hollywood star in the movie such as Ingrid Bergman or Cary Grant although the cast included the renowned international film stars Claude Jade , Michel Piccoli , and Philippe Noiret , the last of whom had previous successes that had been primarily in France.
