Although released during the mid-1960s when James Bond fever was gripping the country, this thriller presented a very different view of Her Majesty's Secret Service. Michael Caine stars in the first of his three big-screen outings as spy Harry Palmer, here investigating the disappearance and brain-washing of several high-profile scientists. With its flawed hero and less-than-glamorous depiction of the world of espionage, the focus is on character and intrigue rather than escapism and thrills. As a result, its cloak-and-dagger view of the Cold War era is more than believable.
The beginning of the long-running franchise sees Bond in the Bahamas, trying to stop the mysterious Dr. No from sabotaging the US space programme.
