Arabesque (1966)

American professor David Pollock (Gregory Peck) is surrounded by international intrigue after he agrees to translate a Hieroglyphic message.

His employer’s seductive mistress (Sophia Loren) reveals that there is a catch – when Pollock finishes the job he will be killed.

Alan Badel provides fine support and there’s a welcome return to Pinewood for brawny Irish actor Kieron Moore.

In the wake of box-office smash Charade (1963), this glamorous trawl through international espionage from the same director, Stanley Donen, is lush, mindless and expertly crafted matinée fare.
