At the Queen’s Club 1, a game of bridge  is at hand  between General Potter (Colonel Burton), British agent John Strangways  (Tim Moxon), Professor Dent 2 (Anthony Dawson) 3,  and Pleydell-Smith (Louis Blaazer), Jamaica’s Principal Secretary of  the British Foreign Service.
1 Portrayed by the Liguanea Club, located at 80   Knutsford Boulevard in Kingston, Jamaica. 2 There’s no mention of Professor Dent in Ian  Fleming’s novel, although there is an unnamed Mathematics Professor in  Strangways’ foursome. 3 In the films “From Russia With Love” (1963) and  “Thunderball” (1965), Anthony Dawson portrays SPECTRE #1, Ernst Stavro  Blofeld, from the neck down. Starting with “You Only Live Twice” (1967),  Blofeld would play a more central role to the plot and would be  portrayed in full by various actors. 4 As Strangways, Tim Moxon’s voice is dubbed over by  actor Robert Rietty, who also dubbed over Adolfo Celi’s voice as Emilio  Largo in “Thunderball” (1965). 5 In Ian Fleming’s novel, Strangways wears a black  patch over his right eye. In the literary canon, Strangways also made an  appearance in the second Bond novel “Live and Let Die” (1954).

Signage of Professor Dent for geological analysis
from James Bond Logos in Dr. No

This item was recovered from Strangways house by 007  in Dr No when he visits it, to investigate his disappearance. You see it  sitting on a side wall unit, 007 picks it up and takes it to Dent who  checked samples for Strangways. The receipt shows Dents verdict on the  presumed radioactive samples. Professor Dent’s Queens Club Card, items  such as this membership card are made to make the film environment  realistic.

from The Quartermaster’s Sean Connery Bond Props

A slimy geologist in the pay of Dr. No and SPECTRE, Dent is tasked with  killing James Bond, but on several occasions he is thwarted by the 00 Agent. Dent  proves a useful resource on the mainland acting as informer and assassin for  Dr. No. He puts on the façade of a rich gentleman, seeing out his later-life in the tropical Jamaican isles. He is a member of the elitist Queens  Club and a card partner of MI6 Agent John Strangways. In fact, Dent is one of the  last men to see Strangways alive.
