Nothing is wrong with the information here, except for everything . . .
. . . starting with the title, and continuing with the credit for a missing-in-action narrator (which are the only two of many possible issues I have space to address here). FROM RU$$IA WITH LOVE--ANIMATED STORYBOARD SEQUENCE: THE BOAT CHASE sounds like it might be worth the 88.97 seconds it takes to watch. Problem is, the word "animated" means that you shell out a couple Smackeroos, hire an actual ANIMATOR, who in turn takes the STILL LIFE drawings of your long ago storyboard artist and uses these as a basis for a cartoon which parallels the final movie scene (presumably, as shot). Simply zooming in and out of artwork from your archives does NOT constitute "Animation." Truth-in-titling laws might allow headings such as "THE BOAT CHASE SEQUENCE: PANNED & SCANNED," or "HERE'S WHAT WE HAD GATHERING DUST ON OUR SHELVES," but NOT the one used. Secondly, this piece opens with a title-card disclaimer reading "Bond and Tatiana's escape by boat was first planned as a night sequence. These are the original storyboards." This is followed by panels showing Bond shooting out enemy spotlights, etc., before segueing into 22 seconds of footage from the finished (daylight) movie scene. There is NO narration, from Michael G. Wilson (the credited "narrator" here), or anyone else.
