To Russia with Love

11. October 2012 by Lorena 0 Comments

Russia and the Soviet Union figured prominently in a number of James Bond movies. That influence is celebrated at a new gallery exhibition dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise. The exhibit is sponsored by GQ Magazine and appears in the Solyanka Gallery.


Bond Girl Caroline Munro was there Thursday night to open the show, as was photographer Terry O’Neill. O’Neill is renowned for his portraits of Hollywood stars; he photographed Sean Connery on the set of Diamonds Are Forever.


The Bond exhibit has plenty to please 007 fans. There are a number of costumes and props from the films on display. In the basement of the gallery, there is a complete reproduction of the villain’s lair seen in the second James Bond film From Russia With Love. Inside this immersive exhibit, fans are treated to dialogue and music from the James Bond movies.


The exhibit runs until November 20th. Can’t get to Moscow in time? GQ will also dedicate their November issue to the dashing spy. The issue commemorates not only the 50th anniversary of the film series, but of the latest Bond film, Skyfall, which comes out October 26.
