Forget James Bond ... and step into the real, dour and chilling world of spies and counterspies. Richard Burton was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award for his role as the burned-out British agent who refuses to "come in from the cold" to take a desk job. Instead, he launches into the most dangerous assignment of his career, stalking East German agent (and Golden Globe winner) Oskar Werner. John Le Carre's best-selling novel provides the basis for this breathtaking thriller of espionage, intrigue, crosses and double crosses. First-rate performances from the entire cast are matched by a tension-packed and brilliantly-plotted screenplay, with masterful direction from Martin Ritt (Hud, Sounder).

Burton was what, pushing 40 when he made this film and was at the height of his cinematic career. I mean he was always watchable (and listenable) throughout his career but in the mid 60s he had a kind of huge screen presence reserved for the greats like Brando or Garbo. He's as gritty as gritty can get on the big screen and though the supporting case, especialy Claire Bloom, are good it's really Burton who mesmerises and is the heartbeat of the movie.

A cold dank greyness pervades the movie. A cold cold war.

The old fashioned ways of paying are a bit more of a hassle for you but mean I can offer this item for the lowest price I possibly can. Card payments are very expensive so I prefer the old fashioned methods of payment. And let's face it, the good old fashioned cheque - well nothing is more secure than that.
