Ipcress File Employment  Agency

Dalby Domestic Employment Bureau - Michael Caine's Favourite

Location: 30 Grosvenor Gardens, SW1V

Description: Made on location around London, 'The Ipcress File' was the first of three Harry Palmer spy movies from Len Deighton's books.

Director Sidney J Furie had little faith in the script (he claims to have set fire to a copy on the first day of shooting), and tricks the movie out with modish Sixties angles and framings.

And to this very spot...30 Grosvenor Gardens at Ebury Street, Victoria, SW1, was the 'Dalby Domestic Employment Bureau', the staffing agency used as a front for Major Dalby's outfit, to which Harry Palmer gets transferred.

Much of the movie was shot within the building, which was entirely taken over for the production.
