I must have seen OSS a dozen times before I enlisted in the Army in 1968 and subsequently entered CI. My dad was OSS under Joe Louis (little known as an OSS operative using his boxing career and friendship with Max Schmelling to gain access to Nazi intell). This movie is the premise of the Editor of the DEA Watch website (deawatch.com). OSS isn't shown enough on TCM. It would inspire many generations of future CI agents.

 

My biggest reward in life was having Universal Studios buy my life story as part of their Jason Bourne first film research and inclusion in 1990. Thanks for mentioning this film. Let's keep our fingers crossed that Bob or Ben will sked OSS for regular broadcasting. I think the old-timers in Langley, soon to be gone forever, would appreciate it.
