    the crazy-quilt was based on a short story with a strange title, THE ILLUSIONLESS MAN AND THE VISIONARY MAID, written by a psychoanalyst, Dr. Allen Wheelis, known only in intellectual circles, and directed by John Korty, whose previous credit was for a short peace film, THE LANGUAGE OF FACES, about a Quaker vigil at the Pentagon. Jim Prideaux, on the other hand, was a man of action, not of thought. For every man Bill Haydon royally pissed off by sleeping with his girl, Jim stood behind him, fists clenched, brow furrowed. You are my other half; between us we'd make one marvellous man, Bill had said, except that neither of us can sing.

      This film is based on the short story ‘The Illusionless Man & the Visionary Maid’ by Allen Wheelis and centers around Henry (Tom Rosqui) a hard-bitten realist with no illusions to anything. He lives a rather solitude life working as a termite exterminator. Wheelis is really working at a union which—as one of his earlier parables, “The Illusionless Man and the Visionary Maid,” showed—is not easy to maintain. Yet it is his commitment to make the marriage stick that is both the major strength and weakness of this book.

This book completes the so-called “Karla Trilogy”: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; The Honorable School Boy; and Smiley’s People.
