Vida & Zora, The Gypsy Fighting Girls - Martine Beswick & Aliza Gur

Decades before female wrestling became an accepted spectator sport, 007 was already benefiting from an early incarnation of the ritual. While visiting a gypsy camp with Kerim Bey, Bond witnesses a rather brutal way of settling problems caused by a love triangle. Two gypsy women vying for the same man fight a fierce hand-to-hand battle to see who will claim him as her lover. The wrestling sequence was considered quite shocking for its time and still has considerable impact because it is masterfully choreographed and edited.
