The Ipcress File
1965’s The Ipcress File, adapted from the Len Deighton novel and directed by Sidney J. Furie, introduced us to Harry Palmer (played by Michael Caine).
Palmer, a British agent, was designed to be the antithesis of that other well known British agent, the suave and sophisticated 007.
Nigel Green, Guy Doleman, Gordon Jackson and Sue Lloyd also starred in the film which received mixed reviews upon release, but has since come to be seen as a classic, coming in at 59 in the British Film Institute’s 100 best British films of the 20th century.
The first release original vintage lobby cards for the film feature good drawn border art and scenes from the film.
This is Card #2 showing Palmer (Michael Caine) talking to Major Dalby (Nigel Green).
