Imagine making a classic spy film like From Russia with Love and in the closing sequence the tall, leggy, dazzlingly attractive girl disappears into the sunset in a speedboat not with Sean Connery but with a shortish, dull- looking man who resembles an old-fashioned bank manager. Not a recipe for box-office appeal, obviously.
