Michael Caine plays Cockney secret service man Harry Palmer in the first of a trilogy of 1960s spy capers. Here Harry tracks down a missing scientist, only to discover that one of his own superiors is a double agent. The film's sequels were 'Funeral in Berlin' (1966) and 'Billion Dollar Brain' (1967).
Michael Caine cuts a cool dash as the sceptical, working-class secret service man Harry Palmer. The film is stylistically extravagant, slyly anti-American and pays homage to classic movies--Philip French
This espionage thriller represents a landmark in spy movies, jettisoning the excesses of 007 and introducing the sly, dry intelligence agent Harry Palmer, played by Michael Caine, relishing a role that marked him for stardom. The story, based on Len Deighton's novel, centres on Palmers investigation into British Intelligence security. Hes soon enmeshed in a world of double-dealing, kidnap and murder and finds a traitor is operating at the heart of the secret service. Will the mysterious Ipcress File reveal who the traitor is? Produced by Harry Saltzman (the early Bond movies) and with an evocative score by Academy Award winning John Barry, The Ipcress File emerges as one of cinemas wittiest and grittiest thrillers.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
