Hi all, I was organizing some of my Harry Palmer files and came across this clipping and confess I had never noticed this before.---Daily Variety dated September 28, 1967. Caine To Do 4th Palmer Pic Role For Saltzman. Harry Saltzman will produce a fourth Len Deighton novel about the British sleuth Harry Palmer and again Michael Caine will essay the role. "Whats Wrong With Midnight" is not yet lined up for a release.---I have never heard of this title before and the next Palmer project was supposed to be Horse Under Water. Perhaps it was just a pre-production working title? Kinematograph Weekly dated May 17, 1969 said Horse was planned to film in Spain and be released by United Artists. Variety January 29, 1969 said Nigel Davenport would star in Horse and be directed by Peter Collinson. Evidently Michael Caine felt "he had done everything he could with the (Palmer) character." Sad it never happened.
