I have a hard time understanding why JB's second outing seems to be forgotten by everyone, even most Bond fans. Sure, it was made before the films went gadget-crazy, but this was a great spy movie. The story was good, Lotte Lendye and Robert Shaw made terrific villians, Daniella Bianci was the usual beautiful Bond girl.
But my highest praise (except for Connery) is for Pedro Amandariz as Ali Berim Bey, the MI6 head of station in Istanbul. He was simply awesome! He proved himself to being for the usual Bond sidekick. IMHO, Amandariz should have gotten an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor!
Is there anyone out there who would like to discuss this Bond gem? I'd be happy to hear from you!
