Hercule Poirot holidays in Egypt; murder is soon afoot. Quasi-sequel to Murder on the Orient Express. Breezy escapist fun with a rich cast of character actors and bright young things hamming/preening respectively, though its clumsy treatment of non-whites plays as racist rather than as innocent comic relief.
James Bond teams up with a Soviet agent to track missing submarines. Swaggering, confident series entry which effectively (and not for the last time) remakes You Only Live Twice. Roger Moore on fine twinkly form.
