Under some good direction and an outstanding cast with a copy that is good for viewing --- Check out "The British Are Coming" is the three minute sum and pieces of various British Films coming attractions to view on VCI, other than that no other bonus or extras --- Highly recommend for all the collectors of "British Films" from the early '70s with good drama characterization --- The music composed by Christopher Gunning is typical early spy and catch the bad guys for that time of British and American espionage series, always brings back some good memories.
Total Time: 148 min on DVD ~ VCI Entertainment #8383 ~ (9/28/2010)
