A classic spy film, only let down by being poorly presented.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Ipcress File [DVD] (DVD)
A particularly solid performance by Michael Caine with great supporting cast including the "passed over colonel" Dolby, played by Nigel Green. Based very loosely on the novel by Len Deighton, it retains the essential mix of anti-authoritive central character, black humour and suspense.
I enjoyed this film but just could not understand why it should be so poorly presented. My main complaint was that it is presented in 4:3 despite being originally filmed in the very wide Techniscope format.
