      One of the better realistic spy films and a great theme (no not by Dennis Waterman) and Nigel Green was first rate as usual. Has there ever been a bio book on him?

        The ambience!

        It's a great film.

          Typically, it was on in the afternoon, when I was at work!

          Simply one of the best spy films of the sixties, with a fantastic score. I'm tempted to get it on Blu-Ray, even though I've already got the Network DVD set, and the poster is one I've been after for a while.

          The filming seems to have been a bit intense! Nigel Green does look like an actor who could do with a biography.

                I do, but I didn't know it was on. If I had spotted it while at work, I would have put it on at least one TV, if only to show off the set!

                And since its a SD recorder, and I already have the Network DVD boxset, it would be a bit pointless (but the blu ray version in about £9 from Network itself). But the HD version on Iplayer sounds good, and its nice to see that its still available - most films are not on catchup at all.

                  I'd wait for a Network sale to get the blu-ray - in the last one it was £5:51

                    I'm sure i have somewhere the VHS copy made from the BBC many years ago. I am pleased Ipcress is continuing to impress new viewers. It is a sterling production with Caine and John Barry and the Canadian director Sidney j.Furie really merging together. There is a photo-I think on Getty or British Pathe-with Michael Caine ,the passenger in a car in Leicester Square ,appreciating the endless queues of eager filmgoers outside the Leicester Square Theatre for his movie!

                    It was an exciting period in British cultural history. Although only 11 at the time I eagerly anticipated every new release in London in the hope mum and dad would get the bug themselves for when whichever release came to the Midlands.
