First Time Ever on DVD and winner of two BAFTAs! Ted Hutchens (David Knight) is a code expert working in intelligence at the American Embassy in London. On a night out to the Royal Ballet he meets a young woman named Anna (Odile Versois), and the pair fall immediately in love. The problem is that Anna is the daughter of the Soviet ambassador in London. It is made clear to both that their relationship cannot continue in such a political climate, and their movements are constantly monitored by surveillance units from both sides. However they continue to meet in secret, attempting to outwit both the American and Soviet surveillance services. Eventually, when Anna discovers she is pregnant, the couple decide that their love is stronger than the demands of political exigency, and make their escape together across a stormy English Channel. The film is open-ended, with no indication as to whether or not they succeed.
