Ipcress File arrives in London's Docklands ...

Sir Ken Adam OBE
... thanks to the Museum of London. Rachel Crossley, the Museum's events manager, has got in touch with the Deighton Dossier about a special presentation of the film of The Ipcress File, startrng - of course - Michael Caine as Harry Palmer, the 'unnamed spy' in Len's book, who is on the trail of disappearing nuclear scientists who are apparently under the control of the mysterious 'Jay'.

As blog readers will know, the film is a classic, and one of the best features of the film is the way that it authentically presents a grimy but vibrant London in the 1960s. The style of the film is immediately recognisable, and one of the elements contributing to that is the set design. As part of Friday's screening in London's Docklands, Sir Ken Adam - the set designer on the original film - will be there to give an introductory talk. Anyone with even a passing interest in the film is encouraged to pop along to the Museum's Docklands branch and check out this special event.

Here are the details:
The Ipcress File, Friday 9 March, 7-9.15pm

Tickets £7 (concs £5) Book tickets online or via the Box Office on 020 7001 9844
