James (Jim) B. Donovan was a lawyer who engaged in many of the 20th century’s most intense historical events.
Steven Spielberg has a new movie on just one* of his exploits. It is the first movie that Spielberg has directed since Lincoln and Tom Hanks portrays Jim Donovan. Spielberg calls Donovan his hero.
Jim Donovan defended the Russian spy – Col. Rudolf Abel. He also made the exchange in Berlin on a bridge and traded him for America’s Air Force U-2 pilot spy Francis Gary Powers. He had been captured when his plane was shot down over Russia.
The movie Bridge of Spies is out on DVD now and it was nominated for best picture and won an Oscar for best supporting actor for 2016.
