Michael Hollinger’s 50’s Cold War spy spoof Red Herring riffs on many classic themes and symbols from the pulp genres of the time: Communist intrigue, nuclear bombs, seedy hotels, murdered Russians, hard-boiled cops and G-men…it even has Joseph McCarthy’s daughter.  You’ll have to trust that the plot is as twisty as you’d want in a spy story—you won’t get many details from us beforehand; that would ruin the fun—and there’s a lot of fun to be had. We can mention that the hard-boiled cop is named Maggie and she’s in love with the G-man. But she has some unfinished business, and he has some spies to track down. Do you want to guess that their cases overlap somehow? That’d be a good bet. Oh, and did we mention the smart-alecky landlady in the housecoat named Mrs. Kravitz?
