DR. NO
1962, MGM/Park Circus, 111 min, UK, Dir: Terence Young

Now almost taken for granted, this initial adaptation of Ian Fleming’s spy novels was a subversive breath of fresh air, depicting for the first time a secret agent who was an unapologetically suave, promiscuous - not to mention homicidal hero. Sean Connery proved amazingly popular as the ultimate sexy beast, James Bond, ushering in the entire 1960s spy-film craze. One of the best of the Bond films, with its Caribbean locale, Ursula Andress’ sensual presence as the feral nature girl and Joseph Wiseman as the evil mastermind with black metal hands.


FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE
1963, MGM/Park Circus, 118 min, Dir: Terence Young

Sean Connery’s second 007 outing finds Bond scouring exotic Istanbul for an elusive Lektor decoding machine. He’s helped by sly Pedro Armendariz and seductive Russian spy Daniela Bianchi, and hunted by Aryan super-killer Robert Shaw and sinister, butch Lotte Lenya as stiletto-toed Rosa Kleb.
