The review of this Movie prepared by Bjorn Bakker

When a Soviet Lektor decoding machine is stolen, both the British and the evil organization known as S.P.E.C.T.R.E. are both out to retrieve it and it's up to James Bond to get it first. Persued by a cunning killer (Shaw) and helped by a Russian Spy (Lenya), it's an action packed extravaganza, including the very famous fight between Bond and Red Grant (Shaw) on the Orient Express! Top Drawer Bond! Followed by the highly successful Goldfinger.
