THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS
1987, Park Circus/MGM, 130 min, UK, Dir: John Glen

James Bond (Timothy Dalton) first encounters the lovely Kara Milovy (Maryam d'Abo) at a concert hall in Bratislava. Bond is there to bring a KGB defector back to Britain while she is there to play the cello - or so it initially appears. The KGB general, too, is not what he seems, and 007 soon finds himself entangled in assassinations, arms deals and Afghanistan's mujahideen in this gritty Cold War thriller. Dalton's first film as the oft-shaken-but-never-stirred spy, THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS also served as the swan song for longtime Bond composer John Barry. With Joe Don Baker and John Rhys-Davies.
