From Russia with Love

Ok what can I say about the oldest movie I’ve ever seen on the big screen in my life. First of all it was free. So I’m not going to argue with that. Second of all, it was better than I remembered it. Diamonds are Forever was always my favorite Bond film. Most fans say Goldfinger I stick to my guns. They both had Connery as 007 this was his sophomore outing as the British agent. Donavan ‘Red’ Grant (Robert Shaw) was one of the better-unsung villains of the series. He was diligent and cunning. He was cold and calculating a perfect foe in the Cold War era. Rosa Klebb (Lotte Lenya) was deserving of scorn as well. She seemed apathetic as to the feelings of her lackey. Tatiana Romanova (Daniela Bianchi) the beautiful young scapegoat used to pit Russia against Great Britten. This was all done for the amusement and benefit of SPECTRE. The villains death scenes were rather mellow dramatic as was acting of Daniela Bianchi but that only goes to show how far the film franchise has come in four decades. Daniel Craig of coarse is the sixth actor to play 007 no one can fill Sean shoes though. Not only is he the only one to have a notable career after retiring from MI6 he will always be number one in my book. Grade A-

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
