MI:6 website covers Funeral in Berlin

Our friends over at Bond fansite MI:6 have updated their review of the Harry Palmer film Funeral in Berlin. The website finds a number of connections with the Bond films, which were developing an international following concurrently with the Palmer stories:

"The crew behind the 1966 production also included a number of past or would-be Bond family. Directed by four-time Bond helmsman, Guy Hamilton (who to date had directed "Goldfinger") and produced by 007's own co-producer, Harry Saltzman, this on-screen adaptation of Deighton's novel is very much in the style of the early James Bond adventures, but with a bleaker, darker edge."

MI:6 is a great website, worth checking out if you're a fan of Ian Fleming's super spy.
