From Russia with Love
The second of the Bonds. Istanbul, a gypsy revel, a horde of rats in a dank underground passage, and so forth. The main event is the close-quarters, hand-to-hand combat, back and forth in adjoining train compartments, between Sean Connery and Robert Shaw, his hair dyed Nazi blond. Shaw and Lotte Lenya, keeping poisoned switchblades in the toes of her shoes, present 007 with his best-acted adversaries. Directed by Terence Young. 1964.
