Three of the top espionage writers of the mid-twentieth century were well acquainted with the secret world of spycraft. Both Ian Fleming and John le Carré were spooks for British Intelligence, while Len Deighton lived next door to Anna Wolkoff a Nazi mole whose arrest he witnessed. Three of their best novels have been adapted to the screen, resulting in movies that are highly regarded by audiences, critics and even grumpy ex-spies. 

We will begin with a lively discussion of the novel itself followed by a screening of its film adaptation. Then we’ll take a close look at how successfully the filmmaker transformed the book’s ideas and characters into cinema.

From Russia with Love, Film directed by Terence Young (1963); Len
Deighton, The Ipcress File, Film
