During WWII the valet to the British Ambassador to Ankara sells British secrets to the Germans while trying to romance a refugee Polish countess.
French visa # 12630.
Countess Anna Staviska:
Do you have a nationality, Diello?
Ulysses Diello: Most people are born somewhere.
Countess Anna Staviska: You're not a native Englishman. What are you?
Ulysses Diello: Albanian... English by adoption.
Countess Anna Staviska: You're the only Albanian I've ever known.
Ulysses Diello: You know one, you know them all.
When the Britsh ambassador's valet Diello (Brit James Mason) suggests that his new German spymaster change the combination on the latter's safe, he gives the existing combination 1-30-33 as based on the date of Hitler's rise to power, suggesting instead 6-18-15, the date of the Battle of Waterloo. One would expect an employee of the Britsh Embassy (particularly one born in the UK) to have used "European" notation (date/month/year) instead of US notation (month/day/year), particularly when speaking with a German.
