“He seems fit,” allows Brecht/Weill legend Lotte Lenya after buffed-up hit man Robert Shaw shrugs off her brass-knuckled punch to his gut; then he proves in a compartment-wrecking battle on a moving train with Sean Connery’s James Bond – himself on the trail of a Russian coding device.
“A remarkably gritty, wittily exciting plot…memorable for the brilliant pre-credits stalk, Lenya’s lesbo sadist, Shaw’s psycho assassin, the cat and mouse game on the Orient Express, and the enchanting vividly alive Daniela Bianchi.”
– Tom Milne, Time Out
