Albert R 'Cubby' Broccoli considered this as one of the best Fleming stories. Bond (Sean Connery) squares off the evil SPECTRE organisation in a race to seize the Soviet Lektor decoding machine, thrusting him into a thrilling boat chase, a brutal helicopter attack and a deadly brawl aboard the Orient Express.
Connery once again excelled and was well supported by a great cast including Robert Shaw, wonderfully menacing as a brutal killer; and Lotte Lenya as the Russian agent with the famous poison-tipped knife device in her shoe.
The film also features many distinctive Bond motifs for the first time and its huge success firmly established the 007 films as a cultural phenomenon.
Presented in a fully restored, digital cinema version, FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE is re-released in celebration of the centenary of producer Albert R 'Cubby' Broccoli.
