Getting Kicks

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

The first three movies in the series are still considered to be among the best, and are also the shortest. Perhaps good storytelling doesn't necessarily need to drag on past the two-hour mark. In the second entry, From Russia with Love (1963), Bond (Connery) tackles the sinister organization SPECTRE, which is out for revenge after the defeat of Dr. No. Italian-born Daniela Bianchi plays Bond girl Tatiana Romanova (though her voice was dubbed by Barbara Jefford). Robert Shaw plays an assassin who fights Bond on the Orient Express. This one features the first appearance of the recurring bad guy Blofeld, as well as the first pop song over the title sequence (performed by Matt Monro). Terence Young directs.
