Terrible and everybody should avoid this. The film stands up but the supposedly blu ray treatment is almost non existent.Frankly it's like watching an old video recording which has been played hundreds of times.The colour fluctuates all over the place and comes and goes in the same scene when different POV'S are shown.This is quite disgraceful and to dress this abomination up as a blu ray edition is a rip off of quite staggering proportions.I will not comment on the film as it's been around a long time and people should know its quality.This kind of production does blu ray titles zero favours..a transfer of nil quality and looks just like a bootleg copy of a bad video recording.Save your money.

A realistic spy thriller with a marvellously layered script from playwright Harold Pinter, The Quiller Memorandum was produced in the mid-1960s, when 'Bondmania' was causing filmmakers to jump on the espionage bandwagon with enthusiasm. However, the world inhabited by George Segal's Quiller is dour, downbeat, and treacherous, a far cry from the gadget-laden fantasy world of Sean Connery's James Bond; the film is closer in tone to The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Funeral in Berlin (the movie it most resembles), but is even more unconventional as an exercise in genre cinema. Though its atmosphere is one of suspicion and intrigue, featuring a couple of accomplished suspense sequences, this movie is more interested in exploring the mental games spies play than it is in delivering action-packed adventure (even the climax takes place off-screen). The vastly underrated Segal gives a fine performance of confident cool; a man assured of his own brains and skills to such a degree that he makes looking cocky and over-confident a point of pride. He loses his overbearing bodyguards with ease, openly threatens men tailing him, and deliberately reveals himself to his enemies in order to get close to them. The scenes in which he tells various bad lies to those he suspects in order to make himself look foolish and clumsy are marvellously subtle. He doesn't even carry a gun, reasoning that it means he is `less likely to get killed'. Rarely regarded as an A-list leading man in movies, Segal nevertheless starred in some of the most underrated movies of the 1960s and 70s, like prisoner-of-war drama King Rat, and Mike Hodges' nihilistic sci-fi piece The Terminal Man.Read more ›

I have to admit being in my 20s when I first saw the Quiller Memorandum but for drama it still ranks with the best. Compared with the frenetic pace of modern films it moves quite slowly giving one time to check all the possibilities and relish some nice touches - Oktober cracking his knuckles; Pol eating the sultana; the hotelier polishing his shoes. George Segal seems to fit the role perfectly - quiet but powerful. I felt that Senta Berger was just a bit too enigmatic and restrained but nevertheless delightful.

There are no torrid sex scenes; no foul language and very little violence. A very pleasing evening's entertainment

If your idea of an exciting spy thriller involves boobs, blondes and exploding baguettes, then The Quiller Memorandum is probably not for you. With a screenplay by Harold Pinter and careful direction by Michael Anderson, the movie is more a violent-edged tale of probable, cynical betrayal by everyone we meet, with the main character, Quiller (George Segal), squeezed by those he works for, those he works against and even by the delectable German teacher, Inge Lendt (Senta Berger) he meets.

Quiller has arrived in Berlin for an assignment under the control of Pol (Alec Guinness). He is to infiltrate and locate the headquarters of a neo-Nazi organization headed by Oktober (Max Von Sydow). And, by the way, Pol tells Quiller, the two men who had the assignment before you were both killed. It's not long before Quiller realizes, as he's captured, drugged and questioned by Oktober, that Oktober's organization is just as interested in locating and wiping out Pol's group. Quiller managers to escape, but was it too easily done? Pol points out to Quiller that he's now a piece between two players who cannot see each other. Only Quiller can see them. If he gets too close to one player, the other player will follow him and know how to take action. Both Pol and Oktober, each in his own way, would be perfectly content to sacrifice one agent in order to catch the bigger game. Quiller is on his own. He's crafty, careful and resourceful. He doesn't carry a gun. The one thing he has going for him is that he knows he dare not take anything at face value. The resolution may see the bad guys finally taken...but not all of the bad guys. The Quiller Memorandum, while exciting in its own way, has a distinctly bittersweet air to it.

Terrible transfer! This being one of my favourite films, I was looking forward to this "blu-ray" until I played it last night. It's just the same as the DVD transfer! Not very clear picture and often it flickers from lighter to darker, darker to lighter (-you know, like in the old silent films, i.e Charlie Chaplin's shorts of the 20's-) constantly in a few scenes! Disgusting!!! If it was described as a DVD & I only payed £5 (at the most) then I'd accept it but I'll promptly return it to amazon this week for sure & get a refund. If you've bought it & don't want to be ripped off by Carlton/ ITV DVD then do the same! Incidentally a Quiller blu-ray just came out in France (BD + DVD edition) & I ordered that from amazon in France & guess what? That edition is the same awful print by ITV- yes, the very same as this diabolical UK edition! So de-ja-vous- I returned that edition to amazon in France for a refund as I did this UK one! Maybe one day a decent blu-ray will be released.
