 From Russia With Love (1963)

From Russia With Love

The second Bond Film, is a cold war thriller involving Bond's mission to acquire a valuable Russian decoding machine in Istanbul. Directed by Young from Maibaum's screenplay, this 1963 release neatly balances danger, romance, suspense, story and character development, and action. A train car battle between Bond and S.P.E.C.T.R.E (Special Executive for Counterintelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion) assassin Grant (Robert Shaw) stands as, arguably one of the best "fight scenes" in movie history. A sequence in a gypsy camp both sexy and violent is also highly memorable.
This movie marks the beginning of the Bond "hardware." Unlike its overwhelming presence in many of the later films the gadgetry in this production such as grant's wristwatch style strangle wire, Bond's multipurpose attaché case, and Rosa Klebb's dagger tipped shoe were colourful touches naturally woven in to the movie's fine tapestry .
