Agent 007 (Sean Connery) is back in the second installment of the James Bond series, this time battling a secret crime organization known as SPECTRE. Russians Rosa Klebb (Lotte Lenya) and Kronsteen are out to snatch a decoding device known as the Lektor, using the ravishing Tatiana (Daniela Bianchi) to lure Bond into helping them. Bond willingly travels to meet Tatiana in Istanbul, where he must rely on his wits to escape with his life in a series of deadly encounters with the enemy. Considered by Albert Broccoli as one of Fleming’s best stories, the film features many distinctive Bond motifs for the first time and its huge success firmly established the 007 films as a cultural phenomenon. Directed by Terence Young.
