Harry Palmer in Season

Thanks to the Double O Section, we've been alerted to an LA screening of the second Harry Palmer film on Feb 21st:

Funeral in Berlin
Saturday, February 21 | 9:15 pm
Torn Curtain: The Two Germanys on Film
UK/1966/color/102 min./Scope | Scr: Evan Jones; dir: Guy Hamilton; w/ Michael Caine, Oskar Homolka.

In this sequel to The Ipcress File, bespectacled antihero Harry Palmer travels to Berlin to oversee the defection of a Soviet intelligence officer. As the double crosses pile up, Goldfinger director Hamilton keeps Caine hopping through such Berlin landmarks as the Kurf├╝rstendamm, the Europa-Centre, the Tiergarten, Kreuzberg, and Checkpoint Charlie.
