Dana Gould on

The Living Daylights

Released 1987
Distributor United Artists

After years of increasingly cartoonish shenanigans, producers Albert Broccoli and Michael Wilson got back to 007’s no-nonsense roots with this 1987 entry directed by John Glen. Timothy Dalton makes the first of two appearances as a dour but no-less daring Bond and the plot itself—about a defecting KGB agent—is certainly more reminiscent of Ian Fleming’s Cold War thrillers than Roger Moore’s cornpone adventures with a Deep South sheriff in Live and Let Die.
