But there are differences, and once again I find them a somewhat fascinating glimpse into the minds of those who handled the job of bringing novel to screen.

From Russia With Love Summary & Study Guide

Fleming goes into great detail about the man's sadistic nature, his serial killer mindset, and how he wound up defecting to Russia and rising so high in their intelligence network.

This all eventually leads to a meeting between the top figures in that community, made all the more ominous by Fleming's "author's note" at the outset which explains that the places, people, and descriptions of this event are basically real. It's interesting after the four previous books to get such an in depth peek at Bond's opponent, and not through the lens of Bond's own spycraft.

If there was ever an argument for including chapters from the villain's point of view, certainly this ranks up there. Unfortunately, as we'll see, the promise of these chapters end up fizzling out.

Ultimately SMERSH the part of the Russian espionage apparatus that deals with eliminating enemy spies -- an actual thing decides they need to perform a "terrorist act" within the world's intelligence communities.

Something bold and yet subtle, to let everyone know just how clever and devious the Russians can be. They posit, quite realistically, that such an action is more to swell pride within Russia's own agents and analysts than to do any real damage to the enemy, but if both can be accomplished all the better.

The book then veers away from Grant. We don't see him again until near the end, and, all things considered, Bond dispatches him with only a bit of difficulty. Thus all the detail of Grant's abilities and dangerous mind seem something of a let down. The book ends with Bond going to visit Rosa Klebb at her hotel room in Paris, the room where Grant was supposed to meet her. Klebb is the mastermind behind the Soviet operation. In probably the most clumsy part of the book, Grant very specifically tells Bond precisely when and where he'll be meeting Klebb, down to the hour and the hotel room along with detailing the rest of the plan -- the usual "let me tell you all about our secrets since you're going to die in a minute" business.

That aside, Bond arrives to confront Klebb, but before she can be arrested she kicks Bond in the shin with a poisoned blade affixed to her shoe. Unlike the previous books, this one ends on a cliffhanger, implying the poison may have killed Bond. Overall the book is pretty good. Not as good as some of the previous novels, but better than Diamonds are Forever.

The setup is great, the spycraft all seems reasonably on the up-and-up. My main problem was how anti-climactic the confrontation with Grant ends up being, given how much time is afforded to him in the first part of the book.

As for the film, it tracks very closely to the novel.

More than any of the other adaptations so far, in fact. There's three main differences: another silly opening scene, a boat chase toward the end that I feel improves on the books lackluster climax, and a tidier ending overall.

We start with Bond chasing Grant through a garden at night. Grant gets the upper-hand and strangles Bond with a wire pulled from his watch.

Bond is revealed to just be some poor bastard wearing a flawless mask, Mission Impossible style to be fair, three years before Mission Impossible aired. It's tough these days to believe that anyone back then actually gaped in awe at such a hokey trick. The thing is, the scene serves no point.

It's clumsy. She decides he is ready by punching him in the stomach with brass knuckles.

No reaction means he's damn tough, and apparently that is all she needs to know. Anyway, I mentioned 'clumsy' earlier. This garden scene isn't in the book. The whole bit with Grant's opponent wearing a Bond mask screams of producer-added cinema shtick.

There is no reason for any of this other than earn a little gasp from us, the viewers.

1. Introduction

Once again, before we can even get to Fleming's intended story, we're in bizzaro farce land. Grant, a killer for the secret killing machine of the MGB, is lounging by the pool when he gets word that he is needed in Moscow. They must choose an intelligence agency of an enemy country to attack. They debate several and finally decide on England.

Within the English Secret Service is an agent named Bond who has interfered with several Russian projects in the past and is popular with his fellow spies. They decide if Bond were killed and his reputation ruined, it would offer a deep blow to his agency.

See a Problem?

A death warrant is issued and a plan is designed. The Russians use a beautiful woman to lure Bond out of London. The lure works and Bond rushes to Istanbul in order to help this woman defect.

The woman, Tatiana Romanova, has declared that she wants to defect to England because she is in love with Bond, a man she knows only by reputation. In exchange for Bond coming personally to help her, Tatiana has agreed to hand over a coding machine that the British would really like to have.

Bond likes this man on sight. The two men spend a great deal of time together over the next few days because Kerim believes Bond should not sit in one place and wait for Tatiana to approach him.

From Russia, With Love

During this time, Bond not only sees more of Istanbul than he ever wanted, but he becomes involved in a plot against Kerim by a local gang who work for the Russians. This plot has nearly killed Kerim once with a bomb and they attack Bond and Kerim a second time while they are visiting a gypsy friend of Kerim's.

Kerim decides he must take out their leader in order to stop these attacks. Bond goes with Kerim and watches as he executes this man in cold blood. Tatiana approaches Bond that night.

Tatiana is in Bond's bed naked when he comes back to the hotel. Bond and Tatiana spend the night together after deciding how to proceed.

Bond wants to get the machine and take Tatiana to Britain by plane, but Tatiana insists on the Orient Express.Archived from the original on 7 August This was much reported in the British press, [22] and the publication of From Russia, with Love was accompanied by a promotional campaign that capitalised on Fleming's raised public profile.
