Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

Well, frankly, neither was SPECTERE, particularly, in the first two Connery films--though their role in FRWL was pretty good. Then a break, with Goldfinger....

In Thunderball, though, I think the concept really hit its stride--holding the free world at ransom with the threat of a nuclear holocaust! And in YOLT, they played the two sides in the Cold War to the brink of war.

And then--that was it. The concept crashed after that. *sigh*


(Incidently, Thunderball is probably my all-time favorite of all the Bond films I've ever seen--with Casino in close second....)
