Kaleidoscope | 1966

Kaleidoscope film location: Back Lane, Hampstead, London NW3
Kaleidoscope location: the home of Angel McGinnis: Back Lane, Hampstead, London NW3

Very flashy, very Swinging Sixties, romcom caper, which shares a suspicious amount of its plot with James Bond novel Casino Royale, as playboy cardsharp Barney Lincoln (Warren Beatty) is recruited to bring down drugs kingpin Harry Dominion (Eric Porter) at a poker game.

Set in London and the French Riviera, the film is largely studio bound, but finds a couple of practical locations in the posh area of Hampstead, northwest London.

Kaleidoscope film location: Flask Walk, Hampstead, London NW3
Kaleidoscope location: Angel's boutique: Flask Walk, Hampstead, London NW3

The trendy ‘Angel’s’ boutique of frock designer Angel McGinnis (Susannah York) is 13 Flask Walk, off Hampstead High Street, now a flower shop. She’s dropped off by Lincoln at her home, nearby 23 Back Lane at Flask Walk.
