International cellist of mystery


We watched the movie "Billion Dollar Brain" (a piece of Cold War over-the-top silliness from 1967 with Michael Caine as Harry Palmer; the "billion dollar brain" is a giant mainframe computer with probably less memory than your iPod -- my husband was laughing at the punch cards) over the weekend, and of course I was most struck by this:

Director Ken Russell is full of flourishes and Francoise Dorleac's cello playing is sub-par . . .
I've been searching around all day, and cannot find out what was behind this. If anyone out there knows, please do tell.
