CGiii Comment

Dreadful theme song...

Faux Scottish accents that will offend every ear on the planet.

Monica Vitti...the epitome of bad casting.

Dirk Bogarde playing a gay villain...what were you thinking?!?

Terence Stamp...a squeaky-voiced cockney...what were you thinking?!?

Losey has made some damn fine films and some abominable tripe - Modesty Blaise is  gut-wrenching tripe.
