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.

'Ipcress' is brilliant.
'Funeral' is good.
'Brain' is weird but watchable.
'Bullet' and 'Midnight' are abysmal.
That is all.

The first two films are superb - classics (the Ipcress File, Funeral in Berlin). The other three are barely watchable. The first two make you weep for what happened to the British film industry and its many brilliant actors: see Major Dalby, Colonel Ross, The Russian General, and the German black marketeer...let alone the great Caine.

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.

Being of a certain age I can remeber the first 3 films quite well and they are just as good as I remember, the rest are a little under whelming and tend to take away some of the gloss of the earlier ones. If you want the best then buy the first 3 seperately, If you are a Caine fan who must have evrything he's ever done then ths is the set for you.

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!

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.

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.
