John Goldfarb, Please Come Home (1965)

During the Cold War, American U2 pilot John Goldfarb (Richard Crenna) crashes his spy plane in the Middle East and is taken prisoner by the local government.

His captor, King Fawz (Peter Ustinov), soon discovers that Goldfarb used to be a college football star. So he issues him an ultimatum – coach his country’s football team so they can beat Notre Dame or Fawz will surrender him to the Russians.

What the King doesn’t know is that Goldfarb’s nickname was “Wrong Way” Goldfarb – because he was noted for running a touchdown for the other team.

Goldfarb teams up with Jenny Ericson (Shirley MacLaine) – an undercover reporter for Strife magazine who is posing as a harem girl – and together they plot to escape their dangerous situation.
