Michael Caine as Len Deighton's working-class spy Harry Palmer (Michael Caine), in one of the classics of modern British cinema.
The complex plot in this thriller involves KGB moles in the British secret service, a missing scientist, mysterious bits of recording tape and a chilling sequence in which Palmer is abducted by the bad guys and brain-washed in a bizarre torture chamber.
Directed by Sidney Furie, the screenplay is by Bill Canaway and James Doran with the cinematography by Otto Heller and an excellent twangy score by John Barry.
