Timothy Dalton's debut as James Bond. Did Bond drive a Land Rover off an actual suicide cliff? Did the director call the leading lady's dress a piece of table cloth? Is the film having a Roger Moore hangover? Is Bond actually fighting with the Taliban?
The film has a rather multilayered plot with all its variables. The Lab is here to explain everything as Karri, Henrik and Tom discuss all the plot dynamics at play. It does not stop there, as Karri has visited many of the filming locations and will give even further details. This is most likely the most thorough investigation of The Living Daylights ever recorded.
The Living Daylights (1987). Directed by John Glen. Starring Timothy Dalton, Maryam d'Abo, Jeroen Krabbé, John Rhys-Davies.
