Sean Connery stars in From Russia With Love

From Russia With Love (1963)

This is the best of the "realistic" Bond films, telling a story very similar to that detailed in Ian Fleming's novel. While the first 007 adventure, Dr. No, never quite feels like a full-fledged Bond movie, From Russia With Love lays much of the formula groundwork that would be ironed out one film later in Goldfinger. Connery shines as 007, while supporting actors Lotte Lenya and Pedro Armandáriz (who was literally dying during filming) provide some of the franchise's most memorable characters.
