More implausible than ANY James Bond\Agent 007 plot . . .
. . . which is REALLY saying something, INSIDE FROM RU$$IA WITH LOVE reveals that STAGECOACH director John Ford foisted off a dying buddy (Pedro Armendariz) to play the second-billed role of "Kerim Bey." (This is EXACTLY how the world-championship-bound Boston Red Sox sabotaged both the 2013 and 2014 Detroit Tigers seasons, trading a shortstop with two broken legs to enable the Tigers to purge the players involved in their wife-swapping\steroids scandals, which inadvertently crippled Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera when he got caught up in a clubhouse scuffle.) INSIDE says Pedro was in so much pain from terminal cancer that RU$$IA's production company was forced to shoot all his scenes in two weeks, while he was being held up by 2X4's outside the camera frame. Then, before the movie was half finished, Pedro shot himself to death in his L.A. hospital bed. As if that wasn't bad enough, a helicopter carrying three crew members including director Terence Young crashed into a Scottish Ness and sank into 45' of water before the soaked foursome barely escaped alive. THEN lead actress Daniela Bianchi was temporarily disfigured in a car crash before Young had dried out. FINALLY, their Scot location was polluted ON PURPOSE with hundreds of gallons of gasoline ON THE WRONG DAY, so that within 24 hours it was "double the pollution, double the fun" (no word on any birth defects among the local seafood lovers in ensuing months).
