What makes FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE So Good? And how has it stood up to the test of time?

FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE has a 97% Tomatometer rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  Dan and Tom give you 10 reasons why they think this movie is so good.   See if you agree!

It is an intriguing question as Dan and Tom don’t always agree on the James Bond movies, but this one … take a listen and see! 

Oh, and how far Trieste is from Venice? And is that ending boat chase viable within the plot?
