Editorial Reviews

Dirk Bogarde, Sylvia Koscina and Robert Morley star in this satirical comedy-thriller at the height of the 007 popularity and set amidst the world of international espionage. Unemployed Nicolas Whistler accepts a job and a tidy salary with what he believes to be a glass manufacturing company in London. He soon discovers that his business behind the Iron Curtain is in fact illegal. Everyone apparently believes him to be a spy but it takes much time and adventure for him to realize it. The realization numbs him with horror, and with his contacts gone, he is on his own. He must escape arrest and flee to England but the secret police are close behind him. Robert Morley, as his boss is a scene stealer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gem from the Spy Movie Craze of the 1960's July 23, 2011
By Grrrr
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Agent 8 3/4 I'm psyched about this comedy/thriller from 1964 finally being released on DVD. Dirk Bogarde plays an unemployed writer who inadvertantly gets caught up in international espionage. Released in Britain as HOT ENOUGH FOR JUNE, this delightful adventure has rarely played on TV ( I only saw it once on a PBS station back in the '70's) and I've been looking for it ever since. Hopefully we'll get a good widescreen transfer on the upcoming release!

Just as a postscript to this review, I recieved the DVD yesterday and watched it this evening. Let me tell you, this WIDESCREEN TRANSFER IS FLAWLESS ! Both in visual and audio, this print looks like it's BRAND NEW!!! The colors are GORGEOUS, the sound is CRYSTAL CLEAR and LOUD, so you don't have to crank up your audio. Frankly, I was floored - just amazed as the quality restoration they did on this film. And mind you, this is the regular DVD, so I imagine the BLU-RAY is astounding as well!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Blu-ray of Small Interesting Eurospy August 18, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
"Agent 8-3/4" or (AKA: "Hot Enough for June") was a bit of a diversion for its director Ralph Thomas who also brought us the Eurospy films that brought a definite threat to James Bond in the line of a Bulldog Drummond series starring Richard Johnson as the insurance investigator in "Deadlier Than the Male" (also starring Elke Sommer and Sylva Koscina) and its lesser sequel "Some Girls Do" (with Daliah Lavi) and also rather stodgy affair, "Nobody Runs Forever" with Christopher Plummer and Rod Taylor. In "Agent 8-3/4" he was wise to cast Dirk Bogarde opposite Sylva Koscina as Bogarde is quite at home in droll British comedy and what it develops into, romantic suspense in Communist Czechoslovakia. It is quite handsomely done in a rather low-key fashion. Robert Morley and Leo McKern are also in the cast, with Morley trying to steal every scene he is in. Noel Harrison has a bit speaking part. VCI Entertainment has brought it to us in a beautiful Blu-ray and also in DVD format from the Rank Organization. The original novel is by Lionel Davidson and the screenplay by Lukas Heller. In beautiful Eastmancolor.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Hot Enough For June" February 8, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
When James Bond came along in 1962's DOCTOR NO, he changed the way audiences enjoyed spy movies and the way that filmmakers made them. The success of the franchise also inspired a slew of imitators and spoofs, and one of the earliest - and best - has just come to Blu-ray disc courtesy of VCI Entertainment: 1964's AGENT 8 3/4 (a/k/a HOT ENOUGH FOR JUNE), starring Dirk Bogarde and Sylva Koscina.

Nicholas Whistler (Bogarde, MODESTY BLAISE) is an unemployed, Czech-fluent writer living in England, when he is - completely unbeknownst to him - recruited by British Intelligence for a mission to Prague. He thinks he's on a goodwill visit from a London glass manufacturer, but the Czechoslovakian Secret Police - and everyone else - knows he's a spy. A female Czech operative, the comely Comrade Simonova (Koscina, DEADLIER THAN THE MALE) is assigned to be his driver and keep an eye on him, but before long, she falls for the handsome, hapless writer. By the time that Whistler finally realizes that he is, indeed a spy, he's trapped in Prague, hunted and pursued by the Secret Police, and only the lovely, conflicted Comrade Simonova can possibly help him.

Deftly directed by Ralph Thomas, AGENT 8 3/4 is a breezy, Cold War-era satire that evokes not only 007, but Hitchcock's espionage thrillers, as well. It's suspenseful and even thrilling at times, but also witty and occasionally farcical - which is why a lot of modern viewers might not be able to get a handle on it. The script is clever and sharp, and the cast, which also includes Leo McKern and Robert Morley, is exceptional across the board. Bogarde is amusing and convincing as the somewhat clueless unintentional agent who must rise to the occasion when his support system falls apart, and Koscina is just stunningly gorgeous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holds Up Extremely Well May 20, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had never heard of this film despite being quite a Bogarde fan in my youth and still living in the UK when it came out. However, after reading the reviews on Amazon I ordered it and we watched it recently. For a film that is coming up to fifty years old it holds up amazingly well. The humour is quite remarkably current, particularly the sublety of Robert Morley's performance hinting at all sorts of things that never really come out. I particularly enjoyed seeing a lot of my favourite British actors of the latter part of the last century, often in very small roles. I really was not able to recognise several of the actors listed at the beginning of the film and one irritation is that there is no list of who played whom at the end. I did recognise John Standing, though, the acting baronet!
