From Russia with Love (1963)

Watching From Russia with Love was like watching "greatest hits of the spy movie." It's got everything. A faceless bad guy who pets a cat.


Train fights.

A knife shoe.


It's weird watching these old secret agent movies before all these beats were known.

One more thing. Since James Bond films are known for their artist opening titles sequences, but in the 60s they didn't have CGI to make them like the ones we see today, it's been interesting to see how they go about designing these. In this film, they projected the credits onto belly dancers.
