From Russia With Love , the second in the series of James Bond films, is the film that solidifies all the Bond film elements into a formula — the action sequences are intensified and lend greater tension to the proceedings; John Barry 's inimitable score makes its first appearance; Q is seen for the first time; and Sean Connery as Bond has nailed down his role as 007 — accentuating Bond's stylishness and sophistication, while toning down his cold-bloodedness. In From Russia With Love , the bad guys don't want to take over the world. They want something more mundane — a Russian decoding device. Assigned to the mission of stealing the decoding device are #3, former KGB agent Rosa Klebb ( Lotte Lenya ), and #5, Kronsteen ( Vladek Sheybal ), an expert chess player who has plotted every move of the mission. Kronsteen's plan requires using Bond's weakness for women as an element in acquiring the decoding device. Once Bond obtains the decoding device from Russian cipher clerk Tatiana Romanova ( Daniela Bianchi ), SPECTRE muscleman Red Grant ( Robert Shaw ) is to forcibly take it from Bond and kill him. But Bond suspects a trap. Being Bond, however, he can't resist the lure of a beautiful woman. So, flaunting danger, Bond travels to Istanbul to meet Tatiana. The centerpiece of this 007 feature is the thrilling fight to the death between Bond and enemy agent Red Grant (Shaw) aboard the Orient Express. — Paul Brenner
