007: Bond, James Bond FREE Summer Cinema "From Russia with Love"
WED, JUL 12
In this razor-sharp Cold War thriller, James Bond (Sean Connery) willingly falls into an assassination ploy in order to retrieve a stolen Soviet encryption device. Bond takes on the evil secret crime organization SPECTRE and a devious former KGB agent, Rosa Kleb (Lotte Lenya). To escape with his life, Bond must rely on his wits in a series of deadly encounters with the enemy, including a battle royal on the Orient Express with the cunning assassin Red Grant (Robert Shaw). With its nearly-plausible plot and electrifying action scenes, this gritty Bond film was a sensation with audiences worldwide. Sean Connery ranks the film as his favorite, as does his latest successor, Daniel Craig. (1963, 115 min.)
