The Bond movie with the most old school spy craft. One of the most romantic Bonds. Exoticism… gypsy fights and continental train journeys. That gripping final act – an extended face off between Connery and a winning Shaw – is the closest the series gets to pure Hitchcock. Every element chimes here. It is a more relaxed adventure, the formula is not quite set yet… and all the better for it. Looked glorious on the big screen too.
