About the film

The Ipcress File
England, 1965 109min.
Directed by Sidney J. Furie
Starring Michael Caine, Nigel Green, and Sue Lloyd

James Bond but make him Cockney! The first in a series based on Len Deighton’s bestselling thrillers about reluctant British spy Harry Palmer (Michael Caine) is directed by Canadian-born Sidney Furie. As the everyman anti-hero on the trail of a dangerous top secret research file, Caine can’t help but epitomize Sixties cool. This witty, gritty caper was made by the same team as the lavish 007 movies of the era (producer Harry Saltzman, production designer Ken Adam) and while Caine’s insubordinate may be a gourmet who grinds his own coffee beans, this is espionage on a budget that deglamorizes the genre: our Harry drives a Ford. Presented with an introduction to the style of 1960s espionage movies by series host Nathalie Atkinson.
