As far as James Bond films were concerned, I remember swapping films with Russian ships and they loved 007. Can't remember watching any of the stuff they gave us in return, they were just considered a safety deposit, so we got ours back.

The Russkis sometimes suggested football matches and boxing matches to which the response was usually: "Why don't you just have a beer, Tovarich?"
