3.0 out of 5 stars A great collection but.. 23 Feb 2014
Yes the quality is uneven but overall this is a great set for Caine fans, BUT it is disgraceful in this day and age that subtitles for the hearing impaired could not have been added. It is so easy and cheap and not to do it is lazy and uncaring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set of DVDS 25 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
I love these films-the 60's ones are cool classics which show the development of Michael Caine as a screen icon but are all good stories with great details and the sense that Harry Palmer (the everyman Bond) was hampered in doing his job by bureaucracy, the old boys network and departmental in fighting-these are on-going themes for anybody who has ever worked in the public sector in the UK ;-)

The films from the 1990's are also worth a watch not as iconic as the first batch perhaps but still well plotted and have a decent atmosphere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Christmas gift for somebody special... 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Fantastic quality collection of vintage spy dramas. While some of the latter ones are less than wonderful, classics like Ipcress File and Funeral In Berlin are well worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 great, 2 good, 1 awful 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase
The first 2 Harry Palmer films, The Ipcress File & Funeral In Berlin, were classics of the genre & I'd recommend to anyone. The last 2, Bullet To Beijing & Midnight In St Petersburg, were both good films but not great. The middle film of these, Billion Dollar Brain, is what let's it down. A truly awful movie with no redeeming features. I recommend the box set because of the cost. Just avoid Billion Dollar Brain

4.0 out of 5 stars Caine at his best ! 10 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
The Ipcress File is easily the best film from the collection with a great story and cast.Though the rest of the collection is not of the same high standard Micheal Caines presence and wit make them an enjoyable view.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection! 15 Sep 2013

Michael Caine at his early best. Little shown in USA , however, I fondly remember these films broadcast over Canadian
TV to the Buffalo area. This along with Danger Man , seemed more realistic than James
Bond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 18 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Classic - better than James Bond, especially the later Bonds - ie post Connery.

Harry Palmer is such a great character and he is so well acted by Michael Caine - not a lot of people knew that!
