Modesty Blaise (1966)

When a private investigator and her sidekick are hired to protect a supply of precious gems, they find themselves duped in this brilliant Pop Art spoof.

Monica Vitti stars as jewel thief/spy-for-hire Modesty Blaise (a character originally seen as a strip cartoon comic in the Evening Standard), with Mod poster-boy Terence Stamp as her catlike cockney sidekick.

modestyblaise_014Dirk Bogarde co-stars as Modesty’s nemesis, a villain who always seems to have goldfish swimming in his cocktails.

And watch out for Mrs Fothergill (Rosella Falk) who enjoys strangling men with her thighs.
