Found inLopez, D. Films by genre, c1993 (Spy Film (Cloak and Dagger Drama, Espionage Film, Secret-Agent Film, Secret Service Drama, Spy Thriller); may be found in or form a subgenre of adventure stories, war movies, political thrillers, romance or crime films. Regardless of this, spy films have consistency in stereotypes, and similar patterns of behavior and situation keep recurring from film to film. It is best, then, to treat them as a unified, separate genre.)
