Excerpt: This is one of the best British thrillers of all time. I have purchased every DVD release in the hope of a decent transfer and all have been most disappointing. At last this has all (with one exception) been put right. Considering the age of the film this is an excellent transfer to blu ray.
Excerpt: first thing u see on the cover is they claim they have made restoration of this film to me it looks like a direct transfer from vhs. Even more funny is when u put this on and u get the ITV logo "ITV DVD"......
Conclusion: This is by far one of my all time favourite films and as a blue ray it looks and sounds terrific, just first class!As a Film it seems like there is something magical about it...is it the sixties? Is it the music, is it the plot...I don't quite know and I will leave that for you to judge!
Conclusion: A sixties classic, this was film was made to challenge James Bond,as a bit more down to earth spy film. Excellent story and the picture and sound have got that blu ray magic. A must if you like a spy thriller. As for the price Â£9.99 as a special offer you can't go wrong.
