About Him

Overview... a Soviet spy working undercover in 1957 Brooklyn. Posing as a hapless painter, Rudolf secretly passes along American secrets to the Soviet Union. But despite his covert ways, Rudolf is eventually captured by the FBI. He quickly becomes a crucial symbol in the Cold War. To send a message that Americans value justice, Rudolf is assigned a diligent defense lawyer named James B. Donovan.

Personality... quiet, humble, calm, and good-natured. Even when he’s on trial for espionage, Rudolf never loses his peaceful disposition. When Donovan asks why he isn’t more anxious, Rudolf simply replies, “Would it help?” Yet Rudolf is far from spineless – he refuses to betray the Soviet Union even when it could help lessen his sentence.
