The 64-Square Looking Glass: The Great Game of Chess in World Literature (1993)

The introduction to From Russia, with Love excerpt notes that “[i]n the 1963 movie based on the book, the chess scene, which in the novel contains only a single move, is expanded to include the brilliant conclusion of a checkmating combination that was taken from an actual game won by Boris Spassky against David Bronstein in the 1959–60 USSR championship.”
