I don't suppose the movie itself is on DVD...
: Yes you are right: The Ipcress File
: The soundtrack is easily available!
: "According to the liner notes, Barry took his inspiration from the zither score of The Third Man by Anton Karas as his starting point, but instead chose the Hungarian cimbalom" .
: " Film and television composer John Barry used it in the title theme for the film The Ipcress File, as well as in the main theme of the 1971 TV series The Persuaders!."

: : Hi,
: : I'm on a bit of a treasure hunt. I found your review on Google. I saw only a snippet of a movie once and the only thing I remember was that it appeared to be some sort of suspense movie and the only thing I remember seeing was a scene that looked like a court room or something with a shot of the cimbalom being played superimposed on the scene. I really thought it would be easy to find the name of this movie (how many movies have this sort of scene?) but it hasn't been. The shot of the player included the strings and hands of the player...
: : Is that movie "The Ipcress File"?
: : Thanks!
