StarringSean ConneryRobert ShawLotte LenyaDaniela Bianchi

Directed byTerence Young

Written byRichard MaibaumJohanna HarwoodBerkely Mather (uncredited), Ian Fleming (novel – uncredited!)

Year: 1963

Plot: Suave James willingly walks into a trap (which also happens to have a pair of long shapely legs) in order to snatch a Russian encryption device, which is also pursued by the global terrorist organization called SPECTRE, or SP.E.C.T.R.E if you would  (SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion).

Pros: Seeing the franchise in its pre-pubescence, back when a pager was high-tech.

Cons: It fights for air, third of it taking place on a train. Robert Shaw’s murderous Grant, pronounced a sociopath and a murderer, was not given a chance to shine or even say much.
