We move on in the 60s series to another Dirk Bogarde film, Accident (1967). LINKED. One of the three influential Joseph Losey / Harold Pinter collaborations, it co-stars Stanley Baker, Jacqueline Sassard and Michael York. Harold Pinter pops in for a cameo. The quality of script and performance stands out, though it’s low key, more TV series by modern standards.

The 60s film retrospectives continue with MODESTY BLAISE (linked) from 1966. Directed by Joseph Losey, starring Monica Vitti, Terence Stamp and Dirk Bogarde. It is spoof James Bond in style, and not altogether successful. It looked good though (in parts) but I found the story un-involving. I’m having a run of Terence Stamp films.
