The Adjustment Bureau Movie Modesty Blaise is a British comic strip featuring a fictional character of the same name, created by author Peter O'Donnell and illustrator Jim Holdaway in 1963. When her surrogate father who owns the casino she works in gets murdered, Modesty Blaise takes on those that killed him and are now at the casino to rob it.
It was loosely based upon the popular comic strip. Modesty Blaise by Peter O'Donnell, who wrote the original story and scenario upon which Evan Jones based his screenplay. The film was directed by Joseph Losey with music composed by Johnny Dankworth and the theme song, Modesty, sung by David and Jonathan. Modesty Blaise stars Italian actress Monica Vitti, Terence Stamp, Dirk Bogarde, Harry Andrews, Michael Craig and Clive Revill.
It is Monica Vitti's first English- speaking role. British Secret Service chief Sir Gerald Tarrant (Harry Andrews) recruits spy Modesty Blaise (Monica Vitti) to protect a shipment of diamonds to a Middle Eastern sheik, Abu Tahir (Clive Revill). The shipment has also attracted Gabriel (Dirk Bogarde), the head of a diamond theft ring that includes his henchman Mc. Whirter (Clive Revill) and Mrs. Fothergill (Rossella Falk). Modesty thinks that Gabriel, who maintains a compound in the Mediterranean, has died, but he reveals himself to her. In Amsterdam, Modesty reunites with her former lover, secret agent Paul Hagen (Michael Craig), while her partner, Willie Garvin (Terence Stamp), is reunited with an old flame, Nicole (Tina Aumont).
Nicole is killed by an assassin working for Gabriel. With Modesty and Willie on the run, they decide to steal the diamonds for themselves but Gabriel captures Modesty and forces Willie to steal the diamonds. Modesty and Willie escape, killing Mrs. Fothergill (Rossella Falk), and giving the shipment of diamonds to Abu Tahir. As her reward, Modesty asks for and receives the diamonds.
Production. Scala had the idea of casting Barbara Steele as Modesty with Michael Caine as Willie, but he sold the rights to produce the film to Joseph Janni, who had Monica Vitti and Joseph Losey as his clients. Director Joseph Losey and the screenwriters chose to follow the latter approach, by making Modesty Blaise a campy, sometimes surrealistic comedy- adventure. O'Donnell's original screenplay went through a large number of rewrites by other people, and he often later complained that the finished movie retained only one line of his original dialogue. O'Donnell states this in some of his introductions to reprints of his comic strip by Titan Books. As a result, although the basic plotline and characters are based on the comic strip, such as Willie killing a thug in an alley, many changes were made.
Likewise, Stamp initially appears in a blond wig and subsequently reverts to his natural dark hair colour. Other changes are more profound. For example, as the film progresses Willie and Modesty fall in love and decide to get married (proclaiming same during a sudden musical production number that erupts during a lull); this breaks a cardinal rule O'Donnell set out when he created the characters: they would never have a romantic relationship (the writer stayed true to this edict to the end of the comic strip in 2. Modesty Blaise includes a metafictional element during one sequence where Blaise, while visiting a friend's apartment, comes across several newspapers with the Modesty Blaise comic strip which are shown in close- up (artist Jim Holdaway's work is prominently shown as is Peter O'Donnell's name).
Supporters of the film suggest this indicates that the 1. This book was a critical and sales success, resulting in O'Donnell alternating between writing novels and writing the comic strip for the next 3. O'Donnell's version of the screenplay was also used as the basis for a late- 1. Modesty Blaisegraphic novel published by DC Comics.
Critical reception. Bosley Crowther, writing in The New York Times, characterised the film as . Maybe, if the whole thing were on a par with some of its flashier and wittier moments, or were up to its pictorial design, which is dazzling, it might be applauded as a first- rate satiric job.
