Kaleidoscope is an entertaining comedy suspenser about an engaging sharpie who tampers with playing card designs so he can rack up big casino winnings. The production has some eyecatching mod clothing styles, inventive direction and other values which sustain the simple story line.

The original screenplay turns on the exploits of Warren Beatty as he etches hidden markings on cards, wins big at various Continental casinos and, via an affair with Susannah York, comes under o.o. of her dad, Scotland Yard inspector Clive Revill.

The relaxed progress of the story becomes, under Jack Smight’s direction, more dynamic through his use of Christopher Challis’ mobile camera. Subsidiary events and characterizations – York’s dress shop, her estrangement from Revill, latter’s mechanical toy hobby, Eric Porter’s deliberate viciousness, climactic card game, chase, etc – keep the pace moving.
