Morzeny, played by actor Walter Gotell who would later play General Gogol of the KGB in six Bond films, is the director of the training centre on SPECTRE Island in From Russia with Love. His stylish black costume for touring Rosa Klebb around his facility gives him a classically villainous and menacing look as well as one that shows he is ready for action. Compared to Blofeld, who sits behind a desk in a suit and tie, Morzeny shows a more involved type of leadership.
Morzeny wears a black leather pea coat to set him apart from the others working on SPECTRE Island in shirt sleeves. The coat has a classic button-three show-three front, plus it has two buttons high on the chest for fastening the revers in place. It has an ulster collar that can be fastened all the way to the top. Unlike a typical pea coat that has slash pockets to use for hand-warming, this jacket has straight, flap pockets like a suit jacket.
From the rear shots it looks like there are double vents, but it is difficult to tell for sure. Because the belt pinches in the rear at the waist, the skirt bunches and flares at the sides and centre back.
Morzeny wears the jacket closed with a belt but leaves it unbuttoned except for buttoning down the revers. It would appear that the costume department could not source this jacket in his size, hence not being able to button it. The shoulders also look too narrow and the length looks too short. While it would have looked better had it fit him, the statement of this jacket was more important than it fitting him.
He wears a black leather utility belt around his waist, but it’s most likely not attached to the jacket. He wears it both to close his too-small jacket as well as to strap on his holster. The belt has a brass plaque buckle with a motif of a Soviet Star with a hammer and sickle. The character is not supposed to be Soviet, but like Klebb he is likely former Soviet military or KGB and may still use it as a cover.
Under the pea coat, Morzeny wears a thin black roll neck, probably in merino wool. It’s a practical garment that again shows he’s an active director and not someone who merely stands around giving order. His minions on SPECTRE Island wear similar shirts with a very short mock neck.
Like everyone else on SPECTRE Island, Morzeny wears black trousers. They are likely made out of cotton drill, a tough and substantial material.
He wears his trousers tucked into his approximately 8-inch black leather boots, which is another sign that he’s not afraid to get himself dirty. The boots slip on and have a rounded toe and a pull tab at the back. These boots are possibly the same ones with the retractable poison-tipped dagger that he wears later in the film to kill SPECTRE Agent Kronsteen.
