Double Feature with THE AVENGERS (TV Series)
(1965) dir Sidney J. Furie w/Michael Caine, Nigel Green, Guy Doleman, Sue Lloyd [109 min]
Michael Caine stars as low-man-on-the-totem-pole agent Harry Palmer in this spectacular spy thriller. Palmer is brought in to lead the investigation into the brainwashing of several top scientists but ends up as a pawn in the power plays amongst a number of people above his pay grade. A bracing antidote to the flights of fancy in the Bond films, Caine’s Palmer is a cultured but criminally-inclined working-class spy who lives in a dingy flat rather than a swank bachelor pad.
