Much the same as the influential character survey....

To help us create a short list of film locations, we would appreciate your nominations.

The most obvious ones Jamaica (Dr No), Istanbul (From Russia With Love) will be included by default.

Please do not nominate: UK locations, very obscure locations, locations used for filming but not part of the plot. E.g., Isla Los Organos (Fictional / Die Another Day) is fine but La Caleta, Spain (where this scene was filmed) is not.

    St. Cyril's Monastery in FOR YOUR EYES ONLY was fantastic.

    I also liked Bregenz in QUANTUM OF SOLACE.

    Yes, St. Cyril's was the first one I thought of, too. It was great.
    Where they did the opening stunt jump in Goldeneye - was that the Cuban Satellite Dish? that was really good, too.
    Switzerland - for OHMSS (sorry I cannot remember the name of the exact location ...)
    Well, I am not very good at this ... but this is my little short list.
