Thank you Ender for your praise. I just really enjoy FRWL - in particular (and I mentioned this briefly) how it seems to subvert the 'Bond formula' (before there even was a formula to being with). Consider: 1. The opening scene - Bond on a mission as we see it countless (future) films. Except it isn't - Bond's a fake, and it's actually setting up the villain instead. 2. Kerim Bey shooting the Russian agent (esacping through the 'Call Me Bwana' poster) - we expect Bond to do this himself, or to take control at some point, but instead the hit is pulled off successfully with Bond merely acting as observer (I can't recall a situation in a any future films which has Bond relegated to such an observer role whilst someone else does the dirty work). 3. The Grant/Bond scene culminating with the fight - Bond tries to get out of it with the cigarette request, but fails (only the subsequent offer of the sovereigns changes the situation), and then the briefcase that isn't used, only to lead to the 'other' case. I'd even argue that FRWL works even better after seeing subsequent films, becuase once you've gotten used to the Bond formula it's fun at how this film plays around with it and surprises you. Good fun.
