Multiple Oscar-winner Sir Michael Caine stars in the first leading role of his career. He's Harry Palmer a stubbornly insolent sergeant working for the Ministry of Defense who is transferred to an elite counter-intelligence unit. Palmer is less than thrilled when he finds out he's replacing a murdered agent. But he has no choice other than to take the job when his boss effectively blackmails him with knowledge of his previous indiscretions in Berlin. Twist follows twist as Palmer and the rest of the unit follow the trail of the missing scientist and when he finds a piece of tape marked "IPCRESS" he suddenly becomes a marked man.

Here is an example of one of the more down-to-earth cold war spy movies, written in the 1960s based on the book by Len Deighton. Written as an anti-bond, Harry Palmer (who isn't named in the book but had to be for the movie for continuity purposes), is an ex-con who was "so crooked he had to be put into intelligence". Blackmailed by Colonel Ross, his boss in the service, he is assigned to a new section when a top scientist goes missing and his handler is found dead.

If you look at this through the lens of the 21st century, the story doesn't hold-up that well. My advice: don't do that. Try to see it as a slow-burn thriller with great acting and twists and turns that are quite surprising. The production-values are excellent and camera-work and soundtrack (by John Barry of Bond-fame) is top-notch.

The movie and the book are miles apart. Forget the movie, it's silly.
