FROM RUS­SIA WITH LOVE

GO!, Mon­day, 9.30pm, PG ( 1963)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

More an es­pi­onage thriller than the usual Bon­das- su­per­hero ca­per, as Bond ( Sean Con­nery, left) heads into Turkey to re­trieve a de­cod­ing ma­chine for MI6. Prob­lem is, there’s an as­sas­sin on his tail ( Robert Shaw) and a beau­ti­ful woman ( Daniela Bianchi) who is be­ing used as a pawn by a SPEC­TRE dou­ble- agent ( Lotte Lenya) to get the ma­chine. Three- time Bond di­rec­tor Ter­ence Young’s stylish di­rec­tion owes a big debt to Hitch­cock, rais­ing the sus­pense and avoid­ing the ob­vi­ous good­ver­sus- evil car­i­ca­tures. The ul­ti­mate 007 film.
