Writing in “From Russia with Love”
by Adam Huddleston
In a continuation of last week’s blog, this week we will be looking at the writing in the second James Bond movie, “From Russia with Love.” Much like the first installment in the series, this film contains good dialogue, action, and performances.
The plot concerns a trap to lure 007 to steal a Soviet encryption device. The plan was for Bond to be strung along by a blonde secret agent until he could be assassinated. Of course, our favorite protagonist foils their plans and ends up with the girl.
“From Russia with Love” contains the usual British slang but not near as much as “Dr. No.” Connery’s lines are sharp and his timing is great. Although generally not considered one of the top Bond films, this picture was still an enjoyable experience.
