Something groovy this way comes

Former crime boss Modesty Blaise (Monica Vitti) is recruited by British Intelligence to help prevent a diamond theft. Putting her in conflict with Gabriel (Dirk Bogarde), head of the diamond theft ring who maintains a compound on a Mediterranean island. Where his right-hand man, the Amazonian Mrs. Fothergill (Rossella Falk), alleviates her boredom by killing.

Blaise enlists the aid  of her sidekick stroke love interest, expert knife-thrower and master of disguise, Willie Garvin (Terence Stamp).  

Now playing: Marvelettes - Don't Mess With Bill

I watched this a few months ago and love every little thing, from the knockabout plotting to Bogarde's hair to the fabulous gear worn by all

My favourite fun facts: Damon Albarn and Dan Nakamura sampled the theme for Gorillaz's 'Rock The House' and Mr. Fish took care of Terence Stamp's wardrobe

All best,
