  1. My Mom took me to see this great movie in the Summer of 1966. The artists singing the title ditty are David(Roger Greenaway) and Jonathan(Roger Cook). I remember seeing them on shows like Shindig and Hullabaloo during the 1960’s British Invasion because I’m VERY old! 🙂

  2. I remember Peter O’Donnell (the creator) being disappointed with this one. I loved the comic strip.

    There was a new Modesty Blaise film made not too long ago. Not sure if that was much better. But they hired a more “Eurasian” looking actress which better fit Blaise’s ethnic origin.

    • A friend gifted me this groovy soundtrack so I decided to give it a watch; I needed to collect some pictures anyway. This was my first and only viewing but I thought it was fun. Admittedly I am unfamiliar with the comic strip and I had no idea another version existed. I’ll have to look it up!
