James Bond (Sean Connery) is sent to Istanbul to scoop up a beautiful Russian defector... Her attack on Bond with a pair of killer heels is an iconic piece of villainy, but a gadget-free fight on the Orient Express is as spectacularly choreographed and genuinely brutal as any in cinema. These are just two of the many excellent set-pieces that enliven the otherwise leisurely pace of what is arguably the best film of the series. Chosen to follow Dr No partly because newly-installed JFK had named Ian Fleming’s book as one of his top ten reads, From Russia with Love would set the tone for successive films. It remains Connery’s favourite Bond and still looks fresh as a daisy to this day. (Time Out)
