This would have been an excellent short film or hour-long episode for TV. I see either Dalton (honestly, I always see Dalton when I think of the literary version of the character) or, and I know this sounds a bit weird, but Roger Moore. Moore could show wonderful moral disgust toward villainous characters, and his chivalrous attitude in some of his films would work very well here as he observes Krest's treatment of Liz. The Roger Moore we saw in For Your Eyes Only would make an exellent fit.
It really is a shame we will never get to see these stories make their way properly into film. Having read THR recently, I was wondering which Bond actor would be good for this story (in a parallel world where it did get filmed). I could see an older Timothy Dalton playing it for some reason.
But Dalton is still my pick.

Just realised whilst going over these stories that I'd best adjust my listed favourite book to Octopussy and The Living Daylights, as the three main stories are probably better than all five of these stories.
Incidentally, is there a poll of the best Fleming story full stop?

Intriguing story indeed. It was indeed a mouthful, more so for Mr. Krest.
