Saw a film in the early 80s (probably around 81/82). Sort of a spy / thriller genre film. The main thing I remember was the final sequence - the hero has to rescue a woman (I think it's his wife) who has been imprisoned in a Soviet mental hospital. At some point during this, one of the bad guys (a KGB functionary) gets cornered by two lunatics and ends up killed in a giant industrial washing machine. The final bit has title cards showing where the various protagonists ended up (one bad guy was sent to posting in Siberia/the Chinese border, the 'washing machine' guy was 'missing')
Have scoured IMDB without much luck, help!
