The Ipcress File
James Who?

Michael Caine proves he would have made a wonderful Bond, but who needs Bond, when you have Harry Palmer. "The Ipcress File" is the first in several wonderful, but often-ignored films chronicling the adventures of this rebellious British agent. Many refer to this film as one of the greatest spy thrillers ever, and that isn't too far from the truth. This sexy, gritty, clever and witty espionage caper has threatening villains, tough heroes, and sexy women, all of the things that made the sixties great. Michael Caine has only recently been given the respect he deserves for his acting skills, but he has always been one of our favorites.
