Continuity mistake: When JB is driving the truck and is being bombed with grenades from the helicopter the truck gets smoke blackened, but when he arrives at the speedboat all the smoke marks have gone.
From Russia With Love (1963)
Ending / spoiler
Directed by: Terence Young
Starring: Sean Connery, Desmond Llewelyn, Bernard Lee, Lois Maxwell, Robert Shaw, Daniela Bianchi, Lotte Lenya
Bond, the Russian girl and Kerim Bey are on a train with the assassin (Robert Shaw) who is masquerading as their contact. Bey is found dead, and later Shaw reveals himself as he drugs the girl and fights Bond, who strangles Shaw to death. Bond and the girl then go to Venice where Rosa Klebb finds them. Klebb is killed.
James Bond: Pardon me, do you have a match?
Kerim's Chauffeur: I use a lighter.
James Bond: Better still.
Kerim's Chauffeur: Until they go wrong.
James Bond: Exactly.
Trivia: The actor intended to play Captain Nash, whose place Grant takes at the Zagreb train station, didn't actually show up for filming. Location manager Bill Hill performed the role instead.
Question: When Bond hands Moneypenny the photo before he leaves, he writes "From Russia With Love" on it. Would this be another in a series of Bond sight gags, similar to stopping the bomb timer at "007" seconds in "Goldfinger"?
