"Fire & Knives" looks great. Glad to see you remember "Eat Soup" too. I was surprised (and disappointed) that it failed. Didn't the first edition have Michael Caine on the cover?


Yes, Caine on the cover. My favourite bit of Caine/Deighton/IPCRESS File trivia was from that edition. There's a scene where Palmer makes an omlet and cracks the eggs with one hand. Caine couldn't do it so Deighton, who was an ace chef, had to do it. It's his hand in the shot.


That is excellent Caine/Deighton/IPCRESS trivia. The opening credits of the film are wonderful. Palmer groping for his glasses, making real coffee - all the time looking the part. Great stuff.
