OHMSS footage and an appearance by George Lazenby begin around the 57:00 mark of the program.
BEAUTIFUL. And not just the fan trailer, but the remastered quality of the film footage.
It seems that a lot of people didn't like the sudden transition to the blaring Bond theme but I liked it and found it quite effective. After a moment of sadness and tragedy, it reminded us that Bond would be back (and possibly emboldened for revenge).
If only DAF had delivered on that revenge angle past the pre-credits sequence.
I didn't realize this thread turned 1 year old yesterday! I can't believe it's already been that long since then and the 50th Anniversary of the film. Anyways, I found this fantastic video analyzing the movie and wanted to share.
'This that season again...
FWIW, I'm currently watching immediate post-Blofeld Telly Savalas in 1970's Kelly's Heroes.
Blofeld AND Big Joe, and all in less than one year. That man was incredible.
Even after all these years, George Lazenby can't get any respect.
(this post was made on 12/26; as of... five minutes ago, his account still hasn't gotten the magic blue check mark.)
That sucks. I wasn't sure if it was just a joke when I first saw this Tweet.
Twenty-something year olds at Twitter have no idea who George is. Sad.
The oldest living James Bond definitely deserves his due.
And the most underrated Bond.
55th anniversary review of Thunderball.
Thunderball is a good Bond film despite its shortcomings and Connery's growing boredom with the role by the time he filmed his fourth 007 movie. I used to be unimpressed by it but in recent years I've warmed to the plot and characters and this is arguably the best-looking Bond film prior to OHMSS and better-looking than any afterwards until at least The Spy Who Loved Me.
Fair point. As is often the case when I'm review-watching material that I'm already very familiar with, like Bond or Beatles films, I found myself paying more attention to note-taking than the film itself. If I find the time, it could probably use a more casual rewatch.
But it's definitely bloated and slow-paced as Bond films go.
Yeah, a frequent critique of the film is that the underwater scenes drag on for too long, especially the scene where Largo's frogmen cover the Vulcan bomber with the camouflaged netting.
Oh, you could insert endless subjects and people after "twentysomethings have no idea.." and you would be correct...
Agreed. He made is mark on the series by not apeing Connery (too much) and humanizing Bond in way Connery did not, and the series would not see again until the prologue of 1981's For Your Eyes Only, which--ironically enough--is a direct reference to OHMSS.
