Plot hole: Bond lies to Tanya on the date the embassy would be bombed (Karim and Bond knew the 13th) and Tanya denoted the deception by telling Bond when he came in the decoding room she thought it was the 14th. How did Grant know to A: be on the train and B: have an entire escape plan set up for the wrong day?
From Russia With Love (1963)
1 plot hole
Directed by: Terence Young
Starring: Sean Connery, Desmond Llewelyn, Bernard Lee, Lois Maxwell, Robert Shaw, Daniela Bianchi, Lotte Lenya
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.
Donald "Red" Grant: Is any of the opposition around?
James Bond: Not in any condition to be worried about.
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"?
