The Harry Palmer Collection


Michael Caine stars as the infamous Harry Palmer

Next to Alfie, Len Deighton’s spy remains Michael Caine’s signature role.

But, like many series, it’s all downhill after the opener – the steady decline from 1965 franchise starter The Ipcress File to 1966 sequel Funeral In Berlin becoming a precipitous descent by the time knock-offs Bullet To Beijing (1995) and Midnight In St. Petersburg (1996) enter the frame.

The wild card here is1967’s Billion Dollar Brain, an impossibly complicated espionage thriller given a welcome infusion of eccentricity by director Ken Russell.
