The Ipcress File
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.
