Film: From Russia with Love

June 15 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Considered by many to be one of the best James Bond films, Sean Connery stars as 007 in an exhilarating spy adventure that fights the most feared crime ring on earth: SPECTRE.

After defeating Dr. No, crime ring SPECTRE is seeking revenge on James Bond in this Cold War action adventure. The stakes are higher than ever as Bond (Sean Connery, at his best) is faced with merciless Russian hitmen and spies as he tries to protect a vital Russian coding device for MI6.

The beautiful Soviet Consulate clerk Tatiana (Danielle Bianchi) is pursued across Turkey, Venice, and along the Orient Express by a ruthless SPECTRE assassin, played by a chilling Robert Shaw.

FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE features all the hallmarks of a Bond film, with its helicopter chases, tech gadgets, and theme song. It also features the first on-screen appearances of Bond arch-nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld, Desmond Llewelyn as “Q,” and John Barry with his first of eleven BOND scores. Before Daniel Craig, FROM RUSSIA is about as gritty as a BOND movie gets.

Note: This film has a PG rating but does include scenes of violence.

PG Rating
115 mins.
