Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (aka Doppelganger)

Feature Film Release Date (USA): 1969

Directed by Robert Parrish and starring Roy Thinnes, Ian Hendry, Lyn Loring and Patrick Wymark, the film's opening scene sparked this critique by archivist Katy Hughes:

Herbert Lom (Inspector Dreyfus from the Pink Panther series) plays a professor [Doctor Hassler] visiting the "Eurospace" records centre. He has to empty his pockets, sign in, give the file number of the document he wants to view and be x-rayed before he's put in a vault and the file is delivered. It's quite a fun scene, especially about the security side of things, also the professor's pen shows up on the x-ray and is taken from him!
