2 Notes


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).
