Le spie uccidono a Beirut (Also known as Secret Agent Fireball), which means The spies Kill In Beirut, is a 1965 Italian spy movie that is inspired by the James Bond series and was filmed in Italy, Beirut, Germany and Paris in France. Richard Harrison stars in this movie as agent Bob Fleming 077. I found the whole thing on YouTube and went through it quickly to find the scenes filmed in Beirut.

I would have watched the whole movie but I only found the Italian version online. Le Spie Uccidono A Beirut is rated 5.5/10 on IMDb.

I enjoy watching old footages of Beirut and these two videos are the longest footages I’ve seen of Beirut in a while. I tracked down the source to this [website] which has old footage from the INA Channel and it seems someone actually bought them and uploaded them.

tramway I had no clue there was a tramway that passed right in front of AUB.

Check out [Part1] and [Part2].

Pelé played a friendly game with the Lebanese team and scored 2 goals which were never included in his tally of 1281 career goals. Here are a couple of pictures and videos I found on this game that occurred a week before the start of the civil war. Brazilian star Bebeto also participated in a friendly game with Nejmeh back in 2003.
