I love this kind of story and the who-done-it attitude.
In several of the tapes in the series Blue Murder the voices did not match what the characters were saying. We found this very distracting and had to stop the tapes.
Got the two LeCarre discs after watching the new film version, which isn't bad, but really doesn't capture the cold-war atmosphere of the books, or fully portray the Smiley character. Plus, you can stretch these out over a couple of weeks.
The CDs were fine, but $18.99 for shipping ????
I heard it reviewed on NPR. My husband and I are entranced.
Like! Much better than the newly released version. The author noted this version honored the original book.
It was good to see those old charecter actors doing a suberb acting job. The movie of the same name, released last year, seems like a condensed version of the original, and left a lot to be desired.
Intriguing plot. Six very well acted episodes.
I read this as a trilogy many years ago. I only recenly found out that the story was available on dvd and had to have a copy of my own.My order arrived on time in excellent condition, new, .I checked out a small portion of each dvd and am very pleased.
Loved the 3 DVD movie. There is so much compelling dialogue that you have to watch it several times to get it all but it is a joy to watch every time.
not normally my cup of tea but this one was good
If you are a fan of MI5 or cold war spy stories this is the series for you. Alec Guiness is wonderfully believable as George Smiley. Saw it many years ago, thoroughly enjoyed seeing it again, still had all the mystery and intrigue. Keeps you guessing a who is the bad guy and what was it really all about.
Saw the movie yesterday in the theater- enjoyed it. noticed credits at the end were incorrect. John Hurt played George Smiley. He did NOT play Control. That was Max Von Snydow.
we liked this very much..one that merits waqtching twice to get everything straight.
Excellent DVD...I purchased DVDs too repeat the thrill I experienced many years ago.
saw the 2012 version of Tinker Tailor which was incomprehensible, read the book, wanted to see this version, found it much better.
