FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE (Theatrical Release USA 1963)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

From Russia with Love—good show, great script—shows Sean Connery in his second James Bond role. The action, the gadgets, the cars, and the lifestyle maintain the James Bond image. Look for Robert Shaw in the film. Good watch for any James Bond fan.

Storyline

Terrorist organization SPECTRE makes elimination of James Bond a top priority.

Additional Thanks

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Worth watching. An increasingly suave Sean Connery enlivens every scene.
