This is the second in my series of videos about the historical context of the James Bond films. The first one, including the intro video and an analysis of Dr. No, is here. In this installment, I’ll take you through the background of the second Bond picture, From Russia With Love, which I did not know before I researched this video was the last film John F. Kennedy ever saw, just days before his assassination in Dallas.

Here’s the original trailer for From Russia With Love.

The poster for From Russia With Love is presumably copyright (C) 1963 by Eon Productions. I believe my inclusion of it here is permissible under fair use, as are inclusions of images from the film in the review video.
