Secret Agent (Podvig razvedchika, literally "The Scout's Exploit"; also known as Secret Mission and Secrets of Counter-Espionage) is a Soviet 1947 B&W war drama directed by Boris Barnet. In 1943 Soviet intelligence officer Aleksey Fedotov (Pavel Kadochnikov) operates in Nazi occupied town of Vinnytsa, impersonating German Heinrich Eckert.
