The Orient Express‘s first stop after it leaves Istanbul, Turkey, in From Russia with Love. Arriving in the train station at precisely 6:32 P.M., James Bond (SEAN CONNERY) leaves the train and meets with one of Ali Kerim Bey‘s (PEDRO ARMENDARIZ) sons, who learns that his father’s been killed.

Bond thinks that Kerim Bey was killed by the Russian agent Benz (PETER BAYLISS). He doesn’t realize Red Grant (ROBERT SHAW) killed both operatives. Bond hands over Kerim Bey’s effects to his son, including his wallet and cigar holder. He then asks that a message be sent immediately to M in London, requesting reinforcements at the next stop: Zagreb.
