Special Report: The Many Lives of James Bond

"Yeah folks in day special episode of the Projection Booth on this episode. I am talking to mark at. Let's about his new book. All about the many lives of James Bond. We were set to release this when no time to die. The latest bond and pre came out. Well that's going to be delayed but we'RE NOT GONNA delayed this episode so you get to hear all about the evolution of James Bond and I would highly encourage you to pick up marks book definitely worth your time your energy and your dollars enjoy before I start asking you about the many lies. James Bond. How the creators have double o seven have quoted. The Super Spy. I am very curious. Mark Ed let's as far as you in your career. You have had just incredible past. I mean that I can find you on huffpost on Amazon. Imdb your man of many talents. Yes no maybe. I'll answer that. I also want to publicly say how thrilled I am to be on your show. I as I told you a been a fan of you for so many years in what. Why was writing this book? A one of my daydreams was to be on your show. So thank you for having me. I'm glad I can make dreams come true. This is my second book. I also wrote a book called how to be a superhero. Which is a book where I interviewed actress who played superheroes for the last seven decades and so it wasn't always the most. I would always sort of pick sort of the the offbeat actors who played superheroes so it's Nicholas happened from spider man. You know it's not tobey maguire in its Lou Ferrigno for the hulk. It's Adam West and Cabinet Kevin. You know it so I was always trying to look. It's aging from wonder woman I would I would. I was fascinated with superheroes. I decided to write a book about them and I contacted thirty five of them and they spoke to me about their experiences. I also wrote and directed Indie Film called the Eton Myth starring Justin Kirk And Zohra Lampert from cast of Eddie's films and I produced and directed a documentary on extreme star wars fans called Djeddai Junkies. Yeah did some writing and producing for TV including Brain Games National Geographic and Yeah that's not show. Now you did jet junkies in twenty ten so the backlash against George Lucas. And the PREQUELS was already there. But did you expect to see? Let's see the levels of butthurt that you saw over the last three films that were released Star Wars fans are are are really really passionate about what they love and what jed eye junkies did was. It looked at how they use that passion to fuel their creativity so I interviewed people who made Star Wars Fan films interviewed people who were lightsaber enthusiasts. And who made their or who made their own Light Sabers I interviewed a guy who built a life size Millennium Falcon in his backyard. So these are people with with skills and interests that go beyond star wars and they just fuel it through star wars. But they're not completely myopic their creative in their own right and they're using their their love of star wars as a springboard for their creativity. You have one credit on your resume. Well it several credits but I have to ask you about it. How was it working with Susan? Serandon over a period of however many films that was I was her system Iran. Her Office for a little over ten years. I did that with Not that long but I also worked for Gary sinise when he was working on. One flew the CUCKOO's nest. And the Great David. Ma'am it On some of his movies like the Spanish prisoner and some of his place. And you know a real honor to be around that creative process and see how you know. You know Ma'am it is a genius in is is amazing to see how he works and just try to keep my mouth shut and watches artistic process. I was just singing the praises of the Spanish prisoner the other day when I was talking about the range of Steve Martin and just that. That movie is so unexpected. When you watch it yeah he just doesn't always get asked to to not be incredibly funny and sometimes at successful comedians and sometimes it's less our new. You saw bill Murray. And and and with Steve Martin where they find projects but show their their full talents. And like in. Your whole podcast is really devoted to not just the movies per se but the talents behind it the creative people what sort of decisions they make and I think that this book many lives James Bond. Your podcast have common is that it's both looking at looking through the lips. Both it's examining the work of these incredible artists. I consider myself slightly obsessive but the level of depth that you put into the James Bond Book I as I was flipping through the pages. I was just like. I can't believe that he talked to this person. I can't believe he went to this place it was just astounding the level of research. How many years did it take you to put this thing together? The first book how to be a Superhero took ten years to to write. And that's because he's my first book and I made it like a magnum opus. And it's it's really lock and this one the male bought I like. Let's not do ten years and I think it was closer to three years writing researching and reaching out to people. The book does two things one. It's a series of interviews with actors who played James Bond in different media so I interviewed a couple of movie actors. I interviewed Roger Moore and George Lazenby but I also look at the actor who played bond on television in the animated series James Bond Junior in radio dramas and video games in audio books. You're the first person we see onscreen as James Bond as many people know is not sean connery. It's the stuntman. And so I thought was important to include at least one stuntman. So I I interviewed a Daniel Craig Man and I also interviewed the German Voice of James Bond. You know we always think of emotion. No Sean Connery as the you know what bonds sounds like but if you live around the world not everybody. Here's the American version. They hear it in their own language and so I thought it was thought it'd be interesting to speak to the guy who played you know who plays bond for the German audience to represent all those people and I I think four or five different video game bonds. My thought was let me reach out to the people who are not always associated with these roles and see what they have to say. I didn't even realize how many James Bond Video Games are were. I mean I am pretty much a novice when it comes a lot of gaming but I mean golden. I still people talk about that game. And what an impact that made but yeah you go so far beyond that into so many things and then even talking about the one that is basically like a movie unto itself just sounds amazing you talking about the video game if you if you're at a bar and made a trivia bat now what was Sean Connery's last performances James Bond. Most people are GonNa say never say never again and they'd be rock. The last time connery played bond was in a video game adaptation of is movie from Russia with love and it was written by one of the right fierce team one of the writers of the bond movies. I interviewed the producer of the game. Who who told me you know these wonderful stories about working with connery. He said to connery. Why are you coming back? It's because it's surprising to hear connery coming back to play bond especially in the video game instead. Why did you do it and connery so sweetly said you know my my grandchildren like Like video games. I think it will appeal to them. And it's a really sweet reason to return to a a role that you might have mixed feelings about that association with he also The producer of the video game also told me a story about Where he they were doing the recording session for Connery. And you know they finished it. It was a long hard day. He came home and got a call from the sound engineer. And they sound engineer. Said I don't have it. I lost the. There's no audio tape here. Mike. It's really blank. And the producer was an was in a panic. Because you can you know what do you do? And the sound engineer. Who has worked with connery in the Bahamas for ages said? Let me call him. And connery came back. The next day into the whole thing for fray yet which is which is which is also very sweet story to show that you know while he does have complicated were mixed feelings about the role. Josiah's work ethic and his. You know the care he puts into these things. What does James Bond Mean to you? And what role has he played in your life. The first time I remember seeing a bad movie was moon raker and my my mom and dad took me to see that and I was about seven and then I saw for your eyes only and it was sort of an unusual one two because moon raker is one of the more fantastic films in the series and for your eyes only is one of the more grounded so for some there might be whiplash but for me that established very early. How valuable a character he is and so you know at an early age. I really was drawn to this confident. Suave super capable figure and wanted to emulate him and sort of absurdly. Wrote Roger Moore number one on on a piece of paper and I taped it to my t shirt walked around school which is really not cool and happily no and beat me up and then from there mile of Abban grew tracking down all the movies which was harder than pre streaming. You had to wait for the ABC Sunday night. Movie to come on. And then you'd watch a butchered version of it. But then I would. I read all the books and then bond is not just the movies and the Ian Fleming novels though that just the the most visible part of the franchise as we're talking bond extends into video games television radio. Dramas you know all my life. I've been sort of absorbing it and and enjoying it. I trying to think of another character and I was doing this while his reading your book I was trying to think of another character who has been plagued by as many actors I know in recent times spiderman is giving a good run for his money. Yeah I'm sure there's somebody really super obvious where I'm just like. Oh Yeah of course you know other than Dr who but I mean. It's such a strange film phenomenon to have this one character but he could be many characters and there's always that thought of is this one person or his he many things just adapting that name over all these years. Yeah I think Batman might be another one of those But the the when when I grew up there were just two bots and I know there was Sean Connery. Roger Moore and I know that George Lazenby obviously made on Her Majesty's secret service between them but he was not part of the popular culture and so people were sort of binary either Sean Connery and that approach or Roger Moore and one of those twos was the real deal and the other one was the pretender. But now we've seen as you're saying more and more actress step into the to the film role now there's six e on bonds but there's also people talk about the other bond projects like the Casino Royale in the sixties. Were David Niven Played James Bond? There was also you know woody Allen Played Jimmy Bond Film Casino Royale in the sixties. They changed the codename. Should they renamed all the agents? James Bond seven to confuse the enemy. So you have to put them on the list of bonds as well and then Barry Nelson play James Bond and alive. Tv Adaptation of Casino Royale anchoring fifty four so which is about fifty five minutes and it's a pretty faithful adaptation. And pretty you can find it on Youtube. It's it's also part of the Casino Royale DVD. I think it's a pretty faithful adaptation and it's and he's an American actor Barry Nelson from you know from the shining he he he interviews. Jack Nicholson to be you know to to get the part look after the overlook for the winter that that Nelson. That's the that's the first live action James Bond. But before him there was a guy by the name of Bob Holness who play James Bond on the radio. The South African Broadcasting Companies Radio Adaptation of Moon Raker in the fifties and this is one of my sort of level of Nerdiness this book help solve the James Bond mystery if you will because nobody knew what year the program was performed live and was not accorded so no copies of it exist and there's no actual documentation that the broadcast took place. So it's sort of like a James Bond urban legend but I was able to do two things one I was able to reach out to his daughter Who recently discovered a copy of his James Bond contract which could all the dates and his rehearsals and how much he was paid. Which was a pittance. She allowed me to present it or reproduce it in the buck so I think people can no longer say that doesn't exist and then the other really neat thing is Although Bob Holness passed away Someone who runs the Bundle Gist on Dal GIS blog? Brian Wrote him a letter years ago and Bob. Holness road back Brian and gave him all the all the questions. You'd want to ask about the production and how it came to be He brought him to two and a half page letter and Brian's allowed me to include that in the book as well I finally give his weight to this legend and improves. It's all real helps. Prove its Oreo. I was most impressed by the interviews with the directors the interviews with the writers and especially the interviews with the songwriters. I was so glad that you went there. Because that is such a part of bond and it was just so nice to read some of the thoughts behind the songs you guys. I was saying one part of the book is interviews with Actors Weekly James Bond and then the other part of the book is it's interviews with the creators but it's all through the Lens of understanding the character of bond and I think that's one of the ways that makes this book unique because there's so many ways to look at the franchise you know there's making a books on bond there's bond and the women there's bond than you know his cars you know and so what. I think makes this book. Unique is that it's all filtered through trying to understand the character of James Bond so that was sort of my the lands at which I looked at everything. Don Black who wrote a fundable. He said that Abban Song should have the allure of the forbidden and the width of a boudoir. Which I though it was a great line and then one of the things I asked him because when you when you listen to these back bonds track albums I do. They play this theme songs in order. And I it's you know Goldfinger and then there's thunderball and so for years I wondered was thunderball about. I assumed it was about the villain because this one was was about the bill. Engulfing about Goldfinger thought about John James Bond but I asked him about it and he and Don Black Right. He's had no it's about James Bond so that is also been sort of a long standing mystery is who is the subject of thunderball and the answer is James Bond. How does the Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Song fit into the James Bond Lor? That's one of those songs that was recorded to be at rewritten and recorded to be the theme song but they wanted it to one of the film to have the name of the title so that was another one of those discarded buying socks. Also I have to ask you. What is your favorite bond? Saw Goldfinger is probably if you're GONNA point to James Bond theme song and say do it like that. That's a pretty safe bet but I also like live and let die and moon rigor and of Yudo Kill and sky fall. I like them. I tend to like the theme songs. Now there are some really great songs. I think mine is The spy who loved me. Yeah Oh yeah Oh. Sure sure. That's that's that's a great one most of the Mara about told from someone else's point of view and then there's only a few of them that you could argue are sung by bond. You know the the living daylights is arguably sung from his point of view Spectra. The Specter theme song is arguably Sung from his point of view. What are your feelings about? The way that bond has changed over the years. And why do you see the need for him? To change with the Times are not change with the Times. Well one of the ideas Is is the idea of continuity and change which is gonNa James Chapman wrote about. And it's the idea that the bond films maintain continuity with each other through often doctors say actress playing 'em and Q. and Moneypenny And references to previous bond films about. There's also change in that. They're not doing the same thing. So you know as I was having in for your eyes only there is no one way to do. No one right way to make a bomb them. They're they're all many of them are so different. You know when you can put doctrinal against die another day you know. It's almost like they're different. Genres from Russia with love is more like an Cold War espionage thriller Goldfinger more action in an adventure. Tomorrow never dies Morgan. Action movie live and let die is influenced by blaxploitation films. Man with the golden gun influenced by Kong Fu they keep on reinventing and change moon regular obviously Sifi they they keep on reinventing themselves so that they stay relevant and surprising to the audience. I didn't realize I don't know why I didn't realize this. But until I read your book I didn't realize Martin Campbell was behind both Goldeneye and Casino. Royale which were total la while they were changes of actors but they were changes. As far as towel goes he set the tenure or the era from for two different really successful bond actors he. He directed both of them and help shape their performance. And what he told me is he thought he actually thinks of them. As sort of two separate characters the James Bond of Goldeneye and the James Bond Casino Royale he would say that he's not talking about the fan theory. That James Bond is a codename given two different agents through the years. He sang that. They have different motivations and so he thought of them as sort of almost like two different people. It's a really gutsy thing to do and I said you know. Where did you feel the pressure or it has eaten but what was also interesting about him is that he said that he. He didn't see Daniel. Craig as bond meaning he. He didn't see how it would work. Because when when they first announce Craig's James Bond. I went and watched layer cake for the first time. You know to check out okay. Whose name actually spun. And I didn't see it. I didn't see how the guy from layer cake could play James Bond and neither initially did Martin Campbell. But through the course of making the film and in shaping the character Daniel Greg Goes. Obviously you know a great great great James Bond. But he wasn't what anyone expected. I mostly knew him from the first tomb. Raider movie rush and in that I was like okay. I can kind of see that because he was more action adventure going the jungles. And doing those things though. He was such a minor character in that film. Compared to I mean even the villain in that in pop for me at all in that. Yeah I just recognized him in that and I was like. Oh yeah this guy you know. He's got a great body. Seems to have a really good personality. Who's playing kind of a lovable rogue like almost friends with Lara Croft? I was like okay. I can maybe see this but it wasn't. Yeah until the while really that opening scene and then opening of Casino. Royale is so good and even though it's really cheesy to do park warren movies now if what the time and fit with this new bond that opening sequence is incredible and it established right away that it was going to be a different type of bond. You you know. He's always cau- blunt instrument of the state in Fleming's novels. But I don't know if we really saw that until we saw Craig's sort of he's a bulldozer. One of the things I loved about the opening sequence. It was just the the sons were spectacular. What the bond actor I spoke to Kmart and was one of the people who doubled crag in in in that sequence and that was one of his first roles as a stuntman and he said that a He never a good wig is an a good. Wardrobe is what could make stop. Man's career that if you got the right wig and you look like the guy you've got all these great opportunities and if you don't have the right wig. Your charges are much slimmer. I think I'm screwing up by calling the park. Horsing the opening scene. I think the true opening scene if memory serves. It's been awhile since I've seen that seen of him in as a in the bathroom and he's to the to black and white shot sequences that explain how 007 got his number and as as fans know when we think of double O agents. We think that they get it. Because they're just you know the best in the business and it's a sign of all their myriad skills but in the in Fleming's novels. It's you get it when you kill two people in cold blood. It's less exotic it's more mundane. Yeah and that that scene. He is fallible that he's out of breath all of those things. I was just like this is the James Bond that I want sadly. I think we've gone away from that James Bond but that was such a revelation for me absolutely you mentioned the other Casino Royale. The one with David Niven. That movie is just bonkers. A you listed the directors on there how many directors were buying that I. There's like five or so during editing. The director you know that that movie. It's insane it has very very very very little to do with anything but But you know the funny thing about when when you talk when not you but when people talk about bond films they call it an unofficial Bonfield Martha call never say never again shoney's nineteen eighty three film an unofficial bond film. It's an inaccurate description. I think you could say it's inaccurate. Because the people who made it had the rights to make those films you know. These aren't fan made films. These are in student films. It's not fan fiction. They had the legal right so that you know so there. It's better to talk about it. As a non eon production eon being the obviously the producers of the series that we think of it but they're not a legitimate gums. You might not like them. And that's fair. You know the Casino. Royale is certainly not may the same way that these other eon films are made and never say never again doesn't have the Polish of neon film But they're they're legitimate they're just non eon productions and I also got. I interviewed two of the UN credited. Writers have never seen ever again. I gotTa tell you that I am. I remain a fan of that film. I think it's witty. I think Sean Connery's performance is even better than diamonds are forever. He's still relaxed and cool. I think he did a great job. I loved that interview. Those guys seemed like they were amazing. They're very funny and candid about their experience. Oh yeah yeah and that they were really calling a spade a spade with a lot of that stuff and I was so on point with them when they were talking about the music choices and yeah everything that was fantastic and I want to tell the story because obviously I want people listening to this to go out into by the book but I was so glad you cleared up. What for me was a mystery. As far as why it took so long for Pierce Brosnan to become James Bond because growing up and seeing remington steele right right. Oh my God. That was great. I'm so glad to finally read that because all those years I kept saying why isn't he James Bond? I know know that's how I became a Pierce Brosnan. Fan Too is Remington Steele. Has like this guy is totally James Bond and a I think we all benefited from him. Not Playing Bond it when Timothy Dalton did as as as people know Brazil Casablanca like Oh but He was too young. I think he got the part when when it was the right time for him to play the park. Same thing though with Goldeneye I love Goldeneye and then those movies afterwards it was just like what are we doing here folks. And then once you got that one with jinx in it I was just like what are we doing? This is going off the rails again. I interviewed Bruce Pearson. Who who wrote it was a writer on three of those Goldeneye department does not enough and you know he talk about the creative process and what they were trying to do. And if you look at those films that they're sort of experimental to that might be an overstatement to say it but they were experimenting with what you can do with James Bond. In tomorrow number dies they introduced the past love and bonds life. You know the Terry Higher Teri hatcher character. They were trying to find ways to personalize it in peel back. The onion is pierce. Brosnan would always say that's what they were trying to do. Yeah like I said I want people to experience his book to buy it because it is just so well done. I'm not trying to you know. Blow smoke up your ass but it is just really well research. I love the illustrations forgot. Sex is a wonderful artists who did them pad and you know the obviously if you look at the cover of the book there's five photos of five different bonds and there's there's also photos in the book but as a general rule. We're all used to seeing the same James Bond images and so This wonderful artists Jew these fantastic illustrations of all the bonds many in many different situations and he. Then it's worth getting the book just to look at his pretty pictures. I know this dropped November of last year. And you probably had to turn it in a few months before that so I do feel that I have the right to ask. What's the next project that you're working on? I am working on to other books Right now Yeah so hopefully in the future you'll invite me back to talk about one of them. Amanda mystery leaving them to the imagination. While I would be more than happy to talk to you again I do have to ask you. Where's the best place people keep up with you and your projects? The books on facebook under the many lives of James Bond twitter has. I'm on there as Mark Ed. Let's E. D. L. I T. Z. The book can be found on at Amazon at Barnes and noble was totally Kogo News Barnes and noble and and seeing it there. They were just thrilled me to no end. There's places to get it all the usual places that people get books they should get them all mark. Thank you so much for your time. This has been a real pleasure. I am so thrilled to be on. I'll be listening to you tomorrow at a particular podcast of yours. I'll be listening to because I've got a whole bunch downloaded and I just listened to it on the way to work but I look forward to listening to you tomorrow.

Repodcasting 29 James Bond Special

"Podcasting is a proud member of the L. Berta podcast network powered by ATP. Ever watched a movie in wondered why the cast sat will men or that. Guy. Here's our chance to give it a try. Re podcasting hello and welcome to another episode. Re podcasting. I'm Lucia and Janet. Hi Janet how are you today? I'm excited me to where this episode and talk about all this fun stuff. Yeah we're breaking the usual format for this one. Janet had a great idea for this. So why don't you tell listeners? Go Rogue Code so the new James Bond movie. No time to die was supposed to be released on April the tenth however this week it was released that the movie is not coming out on. April the tenth. The release date has been pushed back until November of this year because of the Corona Virus Corona viruses wreaking havoc on everything including the movie industry. And from what I've Read. Apparently it's because he had to cancel the press junket and to hurt premiers sippy. Were Planning on doing like. There was one press junket in particular in Beijing that they were going to be doing. They had to cancel it so I guess they just decided to push back the release date which is disappointing because I was really looking forward to seeing the new movie and also the new James Bond movie I feel has been riddled with nothing but problems since the starch You know they've changed. Directors twice moved Daniel I caught it was going to say Daniel Radcliffe Daniel Daniel. Craig hurt himself during the production of the film and they had to postpone filming for. I think it was like six or eight weeks So I just feel as though it's been Like just one thing after another with this movie and I don't know I'm worried at often stealth travel for a movie. And how does eater? Yeah I agree. I actually didn't know that they changed. Directors a couple of times They started off with Danny Boyle. Richard Some Dot millionaire twenty days later. Trainspotting can trainspotting rain right. Yeah yeah he was the first director attached to it and then there was creative differences. That's a shame but yeah so. They've had several issues so I certainly hope that the movie ends up being a success. And I'm sure it's going to be great so it's interesting because after the last one spectre the way that the movie ended was to me very final for Daniel Craig and not only that I had heard that he had said it was his last one so I found it very strange that he came back for another well. He kept saying that he was finished. I agree with you. It's it did sort of look that way. The end effector however he all along he was contacted to do five movies not for so. I always kind of felt like blustering. Sort of you know. The way he was going on and on about how Spector was his last movie in there was no way he was going to do another one. I kind of always thought that that was. I didn't know if he was putting it on. Or you know. I didn't understand why they were doing that because he was always under contract. Should you five James Bond film okay? So another thing I find really strange. Is that so as of when this movie is released? Daniel Craig will have been James Bond for the longest number of years versus any of the other bonds but has done fewer films than both connery. And more Sean Connery and Roger Moore. Yeah like Movies have been just been such big production. Yes that the needed More time to do the MICA been more of time lapse in between them. Yeah well I mean the first four James Bond movies were literally one each year since nine hundred sixty two sixty three sixty four sixty five. Every year there was a new James. Bond movie and Spector was five years ago. Yeah drinking you'll Craig's grain as James Bond. The movies have just been so big and huge mega production sti- I feel as though maybe needed the time to do them. Now Daniel Craig. Also now the second oldest bond. Yeah because like Roger Moore was the oldest. He did his last bond film. He was fifty eight years old was he was and he looked at. Oh Yeah it was a rough one to watch That was a view to a kill from what year nineteen eighty five And yet James Bond Daniel Craig is fifty two this year. Sorry to blow up his spot. I don't think like in my opinion. I think really. Great well fifty. Today is not the same as fifty to one thousand nine hundred five of course but but you know if he gets injured onset. I'm pretty sure that there's a longer recovery time. Then he would have had when he first started. Oh absolutely and I mean the fact that when he did injure himself and they had to shut down. Production of this latest film like that was a huge obstacle for the movie. Yeah absolutely you have an older actor. Like the downtime is is going to be if they get injured. The downtime is going to be longer for sure So I guess what we're doing today is we're dream casting because they'll need a new james bond soon So Daniel Craig. This will be his last movie foreshore. Snow time to die. This is going to be his last Turn his James Bond and I mean they've been talking about finding a new James Bond for. I mean they were talking about this for like two years. Now I think we even five years longer So that's what we're doing today. I thought it would be fun for US. To Dream Casts To feed who each of us would like to see as a new James Bonner who we think would be a great James Bond because it is such an iconic character even still and you know people say what they want about these movies but they still make a lot of money and people still come out in droves to see them definitely. I didn't watching James Bond movies until Daniel. Craig was James Bond. I never saw one before that. Yeah two thousand. Eight was the first time I saw James Bond movie and like I was not a small child or anything either like I was a full blown adult for you Janet. Who was your first James Bond older than you know? I'm going to eat myself here. The first James Bond I sort of was cognizant of with Roger Moore and I remember watching the James Bond movies even as a kid like my dad used to watch them do. Yeah so we used to watch them. Let me ask you this. Who is your favorite James Bond? Okay well I have not seen the one movie that George Lazenby did yet And I have not seen any of Timothy Dalton's two films but I have seen the other four and Daniel. Craig is my favorite. Maybe because he was my first. I don't know I just. I like the darker. Take that he has on it. Yeah I'M GONNA have to agree with you. Daniel Craig is my favorite James Bond. I don't know he just. He brought a whole new fresh sort of energy this role and it really needed it like. I've seen a couple of the movies that Pierce Brosnan did as James Bond and I am surprised. I don't like him then. I did like five pierce. Brosnan was a really bad James Bond. I didn't enjoy him and then it was only recently that I Timothy Dalton He did to James Bond films that I've only seen one. But you know what I actually really like Timothy Dalton. I know that he kind of got a bad rap when he when he did the film but I really enjoyed his performance. I thought he he was a more serious bond. Felt like the energy was more like the energy that Daniel Craig has brought to the role. I think he was more serious. Bond hanging out to watch those because yeah. I don't mind some of the Roger Moore ones but they're very lake cheeky and silly sometimes and then the Pierce Brosnan Ones I. I agree with you there. Not good he's not good as James Bond. It's really cheesy. I don't buy him as that level of spy. It's just bad all around so I'll get started with my dream casting. If you don't have any other comments I do not. We'll just take a quick break though. Stick around and then we'll come back and recast.

We're back and it's time for Jin to let us know who should be the next. James Bond told her this story several times. But I don't know if our listeners if I've ever even told this story on the podcast so when Daniel Craig was cast as the new James Bond. I was really excited because I had originally seen him in this movie that he did call layer cake and I remember sitting in the theater watching him in that movie Hen Thinking. Oh my God this guy should be the next James Bond and then a year later the cast him as James Bond. I was like okay. I would like excited. I was like like I called. It was my first foray into so. I'm hoping that one of my dream casting choices actually become the next James Bond again. I'm sorry to see Daniel Craig go but I also think that you know he's done. This will be a fifth movies preempt to pass the mantle onto someone else. I know there's been a lot of talk about who should play James Bond. And everyone's got an opinion about this and a lot of people have expressed that it should be a female. James Bond and I as much as I am all for like fresh thinking. I actually don't think it should be a female. And maybe that's just because I'm a Hetero PERV and I want to see like a really good looking guy or whatever like for me it's like I just WanNa see a man in that role but mine picks for the new James Bond are definitely more die. I I think we to see some diversity in the new teams on. I think it'll be more reflective of Britain the UK. Whatever you WANNA call it because let's face it. There's a lot of diversity. There were sold this sort of weight version of what England look flake. But then you go to England and like don't want diversity there so my first pick and this is my choice. I would love to see this actor as the new James Bond and it's how I knew him when I think overall whoever they end up selecting as the new James Bond I think he should be a younger ish actor because I feel like a lot of the times when they cast that James Von. He's older already and let's face it. Most of these like Daniel Craig's done five films over the span of what twelve years fourteen years fourteen years? Okay Salako odds are anyone that they picked whoever they pick NEX. You're tying that person down for probably about four or five movies and that's like ten to twelve years did should be someone who is a little bit younger who can not be so old passes the mantle on to the next actor. Asia tally twenty nine. I didn't realize he was that young. I feel like he's a perfect age. He's like on the Kospi almost thirty. And let's face it by the time they got a script and a director. Whatever for the next film I mean. We're looking at probably another three or four years so I think he would be the perfect age by the time they get it together and they start the next one and in terms of acting I like Death Patel is just like he's so good at everything. He does. Good comedy drama. Romance like he's leading men quality and I think he would bring a different sort of intensity a younger energy. He's very charming. Well or at least I think he is and also I saw him recently in a movie called the wedding guests. And if you get a chance you should watch it. 'cause it's definitely like a different type of role for him. But I was watching it and I was like I feel like he's auditioning for the James Bond role and if anyone has seen this movie. I think you'll understand what I mean by that because it's sort of an action film and he was really good in limbo. I really like to see him. Get it east British as well. Yeah Yeah I think. That's a good choice comment. I can sort of picture it I would need to see. More OF DUFF. Patel's work but I don't think he's about choice having it's good. I think it makes sense. My next choice for James Bond would be Henry folding him. I do not know crazy rotation okay. I've never seen it so he hasn't done a lot of work. He did crazy rich. Asians that was like his feature film debut. I believe he's a few others. He was in last Christmas with Emilia Clarke. That got really crappy reviews. Let me tell you it was when I watched his performance in that movie I was like Oh Goldie. He's a car bomb charming and he's got I leading man Dr Quality. I just think he would be a great James Bond and east British as well. I believe I just saw him as well. In a Guy Ritchie movie. It's called. The gentleman came out recently. She was really good in that and when he's on screen you can't take your eyes off of him he's just one of those actors that he just excludes that crazy super charm he. He's only thirty three. I feel like he would be a little bit younger and he would be a good age as well. And my third choice. Also British actor and it's Chew Ital- Isaiah for his. Yes okay for anyone. Who doesn't know him he has been around forever. He's done tons of movies. I think a lot of people will know him for his performance in doctor. Strange isn't he. In twelve years of slave map. Actually a lot of people maybe didn't see the high of Oh. Okay definitely marvel movies. Yeah he's not the lead in that no he's not but he's in twelve years slave for sure he's beaten it. How many people listening actually such Slave I don't know a lot of people will know him as well. Anyone who's seen love actually He is a groom right at the very beginning. Who Marries Cure? Am these okay. That's an older movie. But he's not and I'll tell you. When I saw him he did a movie with Angelina. Jolie called Salt. It's an older ish movie but it was when I was watching salt. I was like wow. He should be the next James Bond. He would be so good and same thing. He's just. He's a very skilled actor like he's good in everything that he does and he's very underrated like I feel like a lot of people don't know him even though he's been around for so long. His body of work is so extensive. But I feel like he's underrated but he's definitely got essence of James Bond. Yeah he's a really good choice A little bit older forty two. That would be my only reservation with him but I think he would do amazing job as the next James Bond as well nice. Yeah I agree I thought you would pick Daniel Radcliffe for some reason as one of the options. Yeah Picture Daniel Radcliffe. Did you pick Daniel Radcliffe? No I didn't. I agree with you that I think it is time for some diversity in that role Be Racial Gender. Both you know it's been around for. What is it fifty something years and nearly sixty years by the time. The new bond comes out the franchise will be sixty years old. And it's only been white men and yeah. I think it's time for you know. Let's shake things up a little. Let's make it more interesting initially like five years ago when I thought maybe spectrum may be the last one at that time I was like. Oh Man Address. Elba would be a fantastic bond. He's a little older now. I think now would not be the time to have him. Start a new von franchise and then there were a couple other people who are like. Oh they're so good and then I looked at their ages and they were a little too old like Lucy. Liu Who is not British. I know but I think she would be such a cool kick ass bond so who I did go with. I have half female half male choices. I would say the first one I thought of was Naomie Harris who plays moneypenny in the most recent version of James Bond. I like her. I think she's fun. I think she has a really cool energy in the movies. And I think you'd be nice to see moneypenny. Get a promotion actress that I feel like. She doesn't get enough recognition. Absolutely I really. I think Harris should be everything every movie like. She's just so good. I don't know if she's selective about what she does her. She's just not offered the parts. But yeah I mean she's greed. Yeah she added And then my next choice. I'm going to go through them kind of us. 'cause I had more choices than you might next one would be felicity Jones. From what was it called rogue one. I'd say rogue one is probably her only like actiony movie but she is British and she is a good age to be starting that and I just. I really like her. I think she's high always like seeing her in everything that she's done two and I've seen her do like some fairly versatile stuff and she's always been good so I think she would definitely bring a very different tone energy. I believe but I would be interested in seeing it. And then my next one. I think you're not gonNA like because she's not British but Lisa weekender. She Swedish but I like her. I like her and everything. I've seen her in any way. Yeah and she was the most recent Laura Croft isn't for Tomb Raider. So you know she has definitely done some action stuff and she can kick ass boring don't you? She's boring on screen truly. Don't the other two actresses that you selected at least there? I don't know and I get at least yet. The candor won an Oscar and she was very good in that role that she won the Oscar. Fewer I think so but I can't picture her James James. How would they if it was a woman? Would they call her James Bond? That's a good point. I don't know I guess you would have to change the name so I can't remember. I've definitely had this conversation with you but can't remember if I've said it on the podcast but so in the past you could kind of like say Okay James Bond 007 they're all spies so that's not the person's name it's not that. Sean Connery's character is named James Bond. It's that's his spiny until there was a birth certificate and one of the Daniel Craig ones where it's at James Bond some like okay. They kind of ruined that. So you're telling me all those other people also named James Bond like it's not the same universe in that way right so yeah like to me if you treat it like that's the spy name for agent 007 then yet you don't have to change the name at all. We're the birth certificate. I WANNA say sky fall. I think it was that one. Okay yeah so then. My other two choices are both men. The first one is to tell you for. I thought you were GONNA save for a second. I thought you were going to say Joaquin. Totally my phone into my know would have picked up my phone and thrown out in the cold dark night. That's that's ridiculous. No I'll say this candor is the only non British personnel blocking Phoenix. I can't even remotely picture that warning. You you're going out the window. You'RE GONNA love my next choice. Yeah yeah because he would be great like he is so suave and yeah he would be wonderful. I actually like would love to see that. And then just in case the casting and producers don't feel that the world is ready for a more diverse James Bond. I picked Benedict cumberbatch in a pick. Of course I haven't talked about him in a little while. It was about time conflicted because I could definitely see you benedict cumberbatch as James Bond. Absolutely I mean he would definitely be believable in the role. T- ticks all the boxes. James Bond I mean even though Daniel Craig's integration of James Bond. Is You know very intense. Kind of serious. He gives us some cheek every now and then rain. Yeah definitely so I feel like you need an actor who can do yes. James Bond can be intense but I feel like he needs to be able to be cheeky as well and be able to deliver those cheeky lines and benedict. Cumberbatch could definitely do that. I think Like honestly I would love to see him as the next James Bond. That would make me very happy part of me that feel like. He's too predictable almost choice what I mean. The other thing too is I mean when they're selecting an actor they have to pick someone who wants like to take on a role like this. You have to want to take on everything that comes with a role like this. Yes because when you say yes I'm going to play the next James Bond. I want to do this for the next ten years of my life. But you know you're no longer an unknown actor this is the franchise. Actually some actors might not want that all that exposure because I know for a long time people were throwing around Cillian Murphy as James Bond and while I certainly would love to see him in the role and he could most definitely do it. I don't think they killing Murphy. The person as the right sort of personality for wanting a roll this big so that was something. I took into consideration when I was selecting my choices as well and do you think like. I don't know if this is just general conversation but it came bright after Benedict cumberbatch. Do you think he's not the personality for that? Okay sure that he is even when he was nominated for the Oscar. I almost felt like there was sort of not hesitation there but at the same time I sort of wondered if he was up for the task so to speak right. Because there's a lot of campaigning enhance shaking. And there's a lot of that goes on when you're campaigning for an Oscar. But I think he's pretty much a household name by now don't you? I mean he was okay. This is animated. But like he did the grinch which is big. Like when you get into those kids movies that are like known characters and to me. That is a person who is fine playing that game. I don't know I'll be honest. I think that there's a lot of people who still you say his name. A lot of people are still like Who interesting? Yeah I don't know but I'll do a poll before this episode comes out and see. Do you know who cumberbatch is. Yes or no that would be my only sort of. I wonder if he would have that reservation life. You'd be hold as Benedict cumberbatch anyway. He's currently forty three. He's a year older than she would tell you for. Yeah well his name has been bandied about a little bit so far for it. Yeah I won't say this if I was selecting a female Bon uh-huh I would pick Emilia Clarke really grown. Oh Yeah so you. Don't watch. Game thrones no only seen. You've seen Emilia Clarke in one movie to that movie is not the Joe Joe. Moyer's movie is not showing her in the action movie light for sure. Nobody saw her in the star. Wars one two. Yeah you need you know what you need to feed game thrown. Understand who? Emilia Clarke is as an actor enough. And then you would understand that yes she would make James Bond. I think she would anyway and her name was actually thrown around. She actually said she loved to do it when they after. I think there would be backlash for sure if they chose a woman. But I don't think it would be so big that it would like tank the franchise or you know. I think they would get over it. I don't know really. Yeah I don't know if I agree with you. I don't know I mean look. I certainly wouldn't be irate and throw a temper. Tantrum selected a female my job. I don't think that they will ever go that. Route as long as Barbara Broccoli is in charge over it. James Bond Inc because she has said long as she's in charge they will never have a female James Bond so I don't think that's something that will see anytime soon. It would cause a lot of backlash darnest immature as you know some of the other fans who we won't name our but I also think that if they select a person of color that there will be backlash to do absolutely again like much like I said with them and I think that it. It's something that once you see what the person can do like as long as they pick a good person of course I do think people will be able to get over it. I don't think that means it's the end of James Bond and that's it what could happen is that the first movie doesn't make as much money as they would expect and then they are scared and run back to a white men. I feel like that could happen. I don't know I don't know it's hard to see which direction they will go in there. Smart that they will go with a diverse choice. I think if they're smart but yeah I could totally see them going with like another white guy that Guy Richard. I think his name is Richard. Madden a yeah. You don't know who he is but his name has been thrown around a lot and people will know him. He's actually done quite a few things he was on. Game of thrones serve as well. He played Robb stark and most recently he was in a show called bodyguard that people were reading about and he was in rocket man as well. I could see him. I guess as James Bond. She's not my James Bond like he wouldn't be my pick picking a white guy to be James Bond so as to not shakeup a franchise or whatever I would go with Luke Evans. The only thing is he's a bit older like he's forty now he's Welch so he's from the UK. I think he'd be good like he's got pat. Really sort of intense vibe that I think is very similar to Daniel Craig's versatile performer was in one of the fast and furious movies. Or maybe he was in two of them said he played a bad guy in those movies and she was really good but then he was cast on the live action of beauty and the beast rate so he is versatile and he was in girl on the train he was so I think. I personally think she if they were going with like a white dude. I think he would be a really good James Bond. Yeah I can see him as James Bond as well but I hope he go with someone more diverse I agree. There's no need to stick with status quo right now. It's let's make it interesting but we'll see I don't know it will be interesting and I think we won't get that new film with a new person for at least like three or four years like you said all right. Well I think we both had. Some interesting picks might be straight for viewers. That's fine. She's my least favorite in a way to because she's the only one who's not British. I don't think that she would actually get picked. I just think that I would like to see it of all things. I think that they would never pick an actor who was nine from the UK Agree yeah well or from the Commonwealth because George Lazenby is Australian. Which means maybe we could have a Canadian bond. We're Commonwealth Hawaii Joshua Jackson. Who Else is Canadian? I'm joking that's not a good pick. I read that when they were auditioning funds after Roger. Moore the auditioned Sam Neill who is from New Zealand and he almost got it. Oh cool and you would have been interesting. Actually I kind of like I like him. Yeah I know. He's he was on picky blinders for a couple of seasons. He played inspector Campbell and he was such a kickable character show but he played it beautifully. So He's a great actor that guy really is. Yeah Yeah Well. I think that that about does it for this portion of the show. We just have one thing left to do but before we do that we'll take our second break. This episode re podcasting is brought to you by snow and tell the winter city podcast.

Podcast stick around after this episode to hear clip and now back to the show okay and we are back and it is time for our favorite segments. It's time for hold me close young Tony Danza. The segment where we cast Tony Danza into a role in the movie. Or in this case in the franchise that we're talking about so Janet so excited Tony Ganz a role in the James Bond. Universe is and where would you like to place Tony Danza? Genius that we have done this. So if I was casting Tony Danza into the James Bond Universe. I WOULD CAST HIM AS Q. Oh Yeah Nice and I'll tell you why because I mean the cute they have right now. It's been why shot gay went with someone younger because usually it was. I can't remember the name of the actor but he was an older gentleman. That did it for a long long time. Well he did it from the very first movie. Yeah I Amos germ it something. Unfortunately I don't remember either. I mean you know he was Q. That people remember it in New von right but you know kill is tiny no quirky character and Q. Is One of these people that take charge. He's in control. He's kind of go to person to be there to help out and Tony Danza does that. So well in the roles that he's in his portrayal had I think he would be able to channel that really nicely and I think he's just naturally that character so I think that's why he'd make a really good q i like it. I think he'd make a very good cue as well And I do want to mention the name of the actor Desmond. Llewelyn does minute or mid. It's not that far off. Yeah I I really liked that. I think that's good I Now I'm worried you'RE GONNA laugh at my pick 'cause I was being just kind of like cheeky about it. Since more than half of my picks were women I think Tony Danza should be bond boy. No bond girl. But he's a blond boy. Oh scan four let him take shirt off and see him fooling around with our new James Bond Lady. I would love it. Silver Fox News okay. Yeah and he's very fit objectified him essentially. I certainly have. I think it's okay to do once in a while. You know the bond boy absolutely appeal And I think he could be like you know how sometimes the James Bond in the bond girl will get very lake cheeky and flirty and I would love to see that. Oh totally see Tony. Danza being flirtatious without his shirt. On movie that we need and I'm so on board okay. Sorry I'm actually a little distracted because my computer battery is about to die and so I'm trying to move the computer to the power cord so we're back on board. I hope I'm not echoey now because I had to move. Okay well so that pretty much does it for us. I think we had some very fun. Picks both for Tony Danza. End For the new James Bond. And we'll see so you. I think we've done some excellent dreamcast in here and I hope. Someone's listening actually cashed one of these fine actors. I will say this. He's they ended up casting. Someone who either has chosen. We're going to be going on. It will be insufferable. We'll be going right. You're right. They pick on mine. I am definitely GonNa attributed to the fact that we've been doing this podcast and you know the whole Malcolm. Glad well thing like we've been doing it for so many hours that I'm now an expert at casting. Okay so for next month for our may episode We will be recasting a real doozy. The twenty ten movie.

Casting one day that would be a dramatic. That would be amazing. Yeah we have to make a profit we would do around table. It would be charged Butler and Tony Danza. My God my dream can not get Tony Dams on the podcast as he ever done a podcast. We have to find a way. I mean we can put it in. The universe can happen right but yeah twenty dance characters guest. Absolutely I'M GONNA make. What do you call it a dream board? I'M GONNA secret it out into the universe. Well no we have to officially put it on a board that like we look at all the time. Oh sorry okay okay. Then it's my fault I haven't done it I gotta get on it. Okay so watch the bounty Hunter Rica. Well or don't I don't want people coming back and getting mad at us? I felt bad because we did have on our social media when we posted about our previous episode. Aloha our friend Marjorie. She said she watched the movie and was upset that we wasted our time.

Bond in Context

"James Bond. License to kill. Studio, violence. Could East she came to my own reflection. Your skills with your body. Mindless Survived Long. UNGONE. History is kind to men who play God. Hello and welcome to no time today. The official James Bond podcast on your host King James King and I promise. That will be the last time I do that gag no time today is the twenty fifth film in the nearly sixty year old franchise. This series will give you unrivalled access to what goes on behind the scenes in Double-o 007 latest blockbuster outing and reminiscing about a few bond movies from the past. We'll explore iconic locations, cult characters and the craft of making a bond film. Plus will also take a look at that legendary collection of cars found briefcase full of gadgets and that Oso stylish wardrobe. We'll speak to everyone you've ever wanted to hear from from no time to dis. Director Cary Joji Fukunaga and produces Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli to those responsible for special effects, costumes and casting plus Rami, Malik Nomi Harris Jeffrey Rights, layer CDU, and the man himself Daniel Craig who tell us what it's like being w seven. One of the things I love about bond films is how they tap into the fears and anxieties of us the audience the best ones feel socially and politically relevant from Cold War power play to cyberterrorism to media, power and intrusion. In this episode will explore the themes and storylines in no time to die I, sat down with director cary. Joji Fukunaga to find out about bond's latest outing. Well, I think what's special about the bond films as they do exist in. Their time but not too specifically, they're in parallel universe they never really mentioned prime minister's names are world leaders or even very, very rarely countries. What was the biggest challenge you faced when making time today trying to figure out how to make this story compelling in the period that we had and to make it seem like it's continuous with the rest of the phones but also exist on its own for people who aren't as familiar with the previous films still be. Fresh and new. The. First James Bond Film was Dr Know Back in nineteen sixty two and featured bond on a quest to track down a scientist determined to ruin the US face program by disobeyed my strictest rule income and I had to. Bunk came to see me this morning. I know I gave orders. Killed by is he's still alive. That was nearly sixty years ago. So how'd you keep the franchise fresh here? The film's Producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli children of legendary original producer, Cubby Broccoli, and is no exaggeration to say that they're both being involved with bonds, all of their lives. We're always contemporary are very of the moment. We start out to. Think about what kind of a story we might tell what type of a situation bomb my go through we. Look to see what? Try to predict what's going to be a problem. We'll be current on everyone's mind. People take seriously. That's a kind of. Basis. For the CAPER. We've also managed to by recasting bomb through the years and everyone that's done. It has brought something new and different unique to the character. To determine character so. In a way, it keeps it fresh and rather you evolving all the time and I think when you talk about the relevance of the character I, think heroism is never going to go out of fashion I mean. I think we always talk about these films is celebrating heroism up the the the regular person. The ordinary man you know bond isn't a superhero and particularly in Daniels portrayal he bleeds see cries. we like to celebrate you know. People. Who? In everyday life, you know do things for the the greater good. And that is something worth celebrating when you mentioned ought to know everyone immediately has images they think of US Andress, a thing called. Roden saying his name for the first time with the cigarettes and those iconic moments a throughout the films. and. I'm wondering in the in the when you're doing a new when doing times die where the you'd think of right I'd love to have this as a big moment. Do you leave that entirely to the writers? Do you have input to say I've always wanted to see James Bond do this? How does it work? I think the. Writers directors are always. Looking for those moments discussing with us, of course but. The I think it's just something that is in the history and they always like to see a connection to the novels to Fleming. and to the previous bond films. So, they're looking for spotting the right spots to. Bring those elements the film. So in the new film, Are we going to see echoes of previous films or stories or the real fans are GONNA go? Will I recognize that little? In joke definitely there's there's a few lines that are. In the script that will that bond fans will love from the books? And some wonderful locations that are described in the book, the books And you know we always love I mean we consider this film to be classic Bond Film but with a Modern twist and it's also vitally important because it is the fifth and the final one that Daniel Craig is going to be doing. So it kind of. It's a combination of everything that his portrayal the character's been through and it ties up all all the story lines and it's pretty epic film I have to say. We've seen bond bankrupt terrorist financiers in Casino Royale and life to protect 'em from traitorous ex W agents in sky. Full Each plot is complex and detailed constantly having to top the last whilst anchoring their message in modern day anxieties and weaving in the franchise's Iconic Heritage Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have co written the last seven films since the world is not enough in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine, and along with cary Fukunaga and feeble bridge wrote no time to die soy asked nail and Robert Very simply how'd you do it? Our processes always been to be aware of what's going on but also trying to think what could happen. Where's the world going what we are worried about to predicting things of it? Yet. This stuff that you researching you get interested in a topic you know obviously you've got politics and what's happening and you need to reflect that in some way so. Hopefully, we've done that in a non heavy handed way in the new movie, and of course, at the same time respecting bond as a character and respecting heritage and you you can change him, but you can't change him too much. Otherwise, he's not James Bond anymore and it doesn't feel like a James Bond film anymore. So there has to be balanced. Doesn't it? Yeah, it's got to be different but the same. Yeah it's easy to magic formula. But no easy to do is really difficult because it's easy to slip out of the genre of James Bond, its own genre I mean that's not to say, you can't kind of introduce things that then can become part of the Shawna. So. Yeah. I it's a case of from. Trying to be different but familiar that thing that strange thing that you're dealing with so many familiar icons so to speak for the audience. Because people up with bond and so in sky fall when he opened the garage doors and looked at the Aston Martin and they play a little bit of the music, you know it get such good reaction in cinema and it's just. A man looking car. But it's not just any man is not just any. Six actors have played eons official James Bond on the big screen, those Sean Connery in thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two, all the way through to. Daniel. Craig whose first film was in two thousand and six Sean Daniel paps come from similar angle bondage this no nonsense blunt killer whilst Jamal introduced a lighter mood of swamp quips and safari suits. In the middle were Pierce Brosnan Timothy, Dalton and George Lazenby smooth buck tough when they needed to be and it's all about that slight reinvention and little tweaks with each new actor although when Daniel Craig Boards, he wanted to push things even further than usual. The deal was I said to Barbara. Michael. When I did I can't do this is before I'd read the script. So arrogant ridiculous. But I just said I can't do impression of something that's come before account recreate what you've done before brilliant though is that's Manama fan so. I said I can't do I can't come in and try and be something that. People. Expect I can come in and try and reinvent it because that to me is fascinating and interesting and instead of themselves saying thanks very much. Bye they went. Yeah. That's exactly what we want to do. So how has Daniel Craig's bond changed over his five films I asked screenwriters, Robert Wade Neal Purvis, and producer Michael G Wilson. Roger Moore was perfect in the seventies and he he didn't take the killing seriously but obviously I think Daniel. He was really good to make bond feel like a real person. So we we definitely I mean after die another day which when it was a big the top movie. The, and that was nothing to do with Pierce. Is just when he was the incumbent, it was very glamorous and sort of. As. I say over the Taw it was. Just right. It just seemed right to get back to basics and so daniel was fantastic in that. Way and that's meant that we've had because we had a starting point with him. Is, interesting that she the word reboot didn't exist. At, that time I mean it was a computer term, but it was I, we never we'd never heard of it. We didn't know that we were doing a reboot, but definitely with the Daniel tenure has been a range of journeys for him to go through. So obviously. Sky Will. Be Killing Judi dench was a really big thing to know that you're going to do in that. She's that is the emotional journey for him and so we've been fortunate to be ran when there was a kind of shape to the journey. We. Also, in Casino didn't have any of the other figures that came into. Yeah Bond. and. So so he was alone on Casino Royale apart from 'em. And that also allowed you to introduce people. As. The whole series progressed but it. It was unusual bozos in it because the that. Those five movies have been. A series of films rather than. Just. One Sola time as you seem to remember them back in the day. Certainly. evolved. From a guy who came out of the military took the job. was. Kind of impervious to. situate emotions and things that. Then fell in love in it. It was. Something infected. Probably, at that point thinking about retiring of even then. And then it turned out. That he felt betrayed. And it turned him into. Real hardened them. Great deal. Gave them a very. Tough outer. You know coating and he's been going through these films. In a way peeling back hardness. Developing is. Humanity. And finally in the last film. decided. Not to the bill on and just. Tournament and retire and. Play off into the sunset and have a good life course. For James Bond that doesn't happen not easily anyway. vespas Lyndon Casino Royale is one of the few characters bonds truly fell in love with, but it also led to perhaps the biggest betrayal in the franchise's history. Let me in. You've got your back home. I have no on the left. District from it. Whatever is left of me. Whatever I am. Yours. Inspector we saw him fall in love again this time with Dr Madeleine Swan by coming back for no time to die she's one of the few bond women to ever make a significant reappearance. Asked do who plays Madelyn why her character has returned? I think that. It's also because of boned. And we needed Madeleine also to to tell A. Story I. Mean it was I think it was important to see bond in love again. Because he had this. Relationship with Vesper, but she betrayed him. And this time. I think she's the. She's the real love in a way. So yeah, it's it's. It's really I think that the film is also yeah it's it's a love story to the story between the two of them. And So it's very unusual for bond film to see to see James Bond love. Right. And I think it's quite modern. Anyway. To those blue is still recognize. What's different about this film compared to Specter I would say that in this film, it's even more psychological and more emotional. And I think that it's something that Daniel as James Bond really like Created. With this character. He created the character that is more. Vulnerable and. Has, flaws and and I think that's what we like as a notice and it's true that James Bond is like an. It's not real world, right? But what we like is that in this world that is not real, we can relate to the characters. Bones is being a well known womanizer for all of his big screen life. So how significant is it to see him fall in love A screen writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wait I, think that. The end of Casino. He realizes that he can't have a normal relationship and he can't have love. He's also realized that he knows what he's protecting now. So that gave you a kind of starting position to then move forward journey for bonding seen Roy out is that he's an orphan he's loyal to Her Majesty it, but it's basically He doesn't really understand. Life. And then he meets this other orphan and he they fall in love and he suddenly Apprehensions. What life could be like actually, if you an often you've never really known a loving environment and then suddenly you start unit, you could have your own little life. And so he? Understands what life is about and then it's taken away because he discovers that she was always. Deceiving him even though she may well of batch she loved him but he dons his armor I mean it's a line in the film but. That's when it happens and he says the bitch is dead, which is the the last line, the novel on it was very important to us that being the film. So he now understands that this is real life that people do fall in love he can never allow himself to do that because it made him vulnerable. And he kind of go around the world protecting that, and so finally in Specter he meets someone and he starts to think maybe can walk away from this for love. So that's the journey and the end of. Casino Royale. The book, he's East determined to find the. Hunt down the armed holds the whip and gun. Yeah. That's his quest. That's the ARC that we're trying to to on this is that he can't stop. Doing that. Even if he's got a relationship and even if he's retired. The shoe. ooh. ooh. It usually does the. While the films of modernized, they've also kept many of those classic characters from both in Fleming's novels and the early movie adaptations the last few of seeing the introduction of q moneypenny antenna. So whilst this and not to the past I asked Daniel Craig I'm a fan of all of the tropes I'm a fan of all of the characters. One of the biggest thrill for me was the one we saw during sky full and we like we wanted moneypenny we wanna Q. on you know. Killing off Judy. God forgive me. But we. We bought in Rafe when it's like those. Those are so excited because that meant we could reintroduce those couches characters I when I was a kid on it'd be thrilled by we could reintroduce them and Ben came in and he came in and rave came in and Created them like so that. The whole people the the the are funny and entertaining, and moving and all of those things. That's that's kind of. That's a change without changing that makes. Let's look back some of those key characters who have been reimagined. Gives. Given enough so they. Never take me to dinner tonight this. Never take me to area. Devastated it's whatever do without you. Far as I remember James. You've never had. been reassigned. Temporary. From fieldwork really something to do with killing AA seven world. You do your best short hardly my best shot. Survive you'll best. You'll get the explained. About the leg. skiing. If I mentioned his Douglas. Marksman isn't really supposed to shoot his own boss. Magnificent isn't. Zero to sixteen three point two seconds fully bulletproof food little tricks up our sleeve. So. Shane. Really she was meant for you but she's been reassigned double. Annoying nine. But, you can have this. Doesn't do anything. It tells the time. Maybe not, but jammed on your job and you spend six months in hospital and cousins. Number Mitchell. Nicest. Okay. We're trying to find an entire network of terrorist groups is financing. You give one bond hardly the big wouldn't you say? The man isn't even a true believer. He's a gun for hire. And thanks to your over develop trigger finger. We have no idea. Why? And how the Hell did you find out where I lived somewhere have found out your name? Was Randomness assigned inaugurates. Have killed. So I made an alliance to power where it should be, and now you want to throw it away. For the sake of democracy. Whatever the hell that heads. How predictably moronic but then isn't that what an stands for? More on. Now, never ceased. Callous. com. When you bring back a classic character how'd you then develop the personality of these returning faces I asked director Cary Fukunaga we have the whole cast right? We have. We've got 'em and Q. and moneypenny and Tanner in the side, and we have battling Dr Melons Swan in terms of the personal relationship for bond and we have earned stavridis blow felt as the arch nemesis prevent as well. So those are. The sort of the cast, the that. Previously, been established and I think all of them have continuity of their character plus. What what they can do, what how they participate as opposed in this story and moneypenny and cues case there's this new thing out there. It's going to be threatening the world and I can't really tell you too much. But an everyone else are are working together to try and stop it, and eventually as we are all kind of I think probably expecting bond is thrown back in to save the day. I see below felts returns what bring him back. He's obviously he's a character that is iconic for the the bond franchise. Know the Blofeld is a is a villain that has haunted bonds since the novels and when he came back inspector. He was put in jail for the end of that film put into prison and it seemed to me like that can't be the end of blow felt story. Here is a a mind, an intelligent mind beyond the rest and prison and the confines of prison when him. We are also introduced to someone extra special in no time to a brand-new double-o agent. The welds moved Don Command bond view a double O T S. Stay in your lane, you get in my way, I will put a bullet in your name. What we know about this new agent Michael Talk with the actor playing her Lassana Lynch and aims no me. She's a w Agen and she's very much to shake things up in six in my opinion she's very skilled. Schools that she doesn't have she'll probably just learn on the spot and then pretend like she knew all along. She's a good representation of where women are very empowered very Pinon it and gives people a run for their money. How does bond respond to a character like that? I mean tons into eventually economy mutual respect for each other because they come from the same program and they know what your child is capable of the beginning you know he's she's definitely technologically advanced on because he's been away for a long time. She knows exactly which buttons to press. She always like a James Bond file on her shelf at home and has been studying it for two years, and now she's had that opportunity to ship it to sit down with him tell exactly what she thinks and is a real powerful moment because. He stopped in his tracks by a woman does the same thing as him for the first time and we've never seen that before and that's actually what keeps things fresh the every few years it has to come in and reinvent itself a little bit. Yeah and what a great job they've done it during that you know it's always like a massive event when the James Bond Film is announced because People Think, oh, they're going to do now who they gonNA cause who's going to be the villain where they gonNA shoot whatever landscapes and? It's always very exciting. Always people will always have their favorites, but you can't deny that feeling when you find out the next one is coming because you know the is about to be a special cinema moment. We bond fans are demanding bunch. We love things to change, but we also love a bit of nostalgia in amongst all that moving forward. It's a classic movie making conundrum. Really we want the same but different that's no easy task. Bill Tanner is M's chief of staff and four actors played him since his first appearance in the man with the Golden Gun in nineteen seventy four. I sat down with current Tanner Brewery CANEA and asked about characters such as his and that blends of pushing forwards whilst nodding to the past. What sort of brilliantly do the films is that sort of inching forwards as well as holding on? And that's the difficult blend. Isn't it? Yeah and and each time that sense of okay. How do we? How do we? Evolve and how do we bring these films into a whatever whatever whatever the audiences expecting that year. But at the same time, you know resist completely throwing the baby out with the Buffalo and making sure that there is enough for those people that go to see the bond films because of what they represent historically and what they you know that sense of. Holding onto that childhood when they first started watching bond films as well as you know, what does someone who wants to come and see a film for the first time sort of expect these days And I suppose the the the best bond movies will always reflects in some way what's going on in politics in society that contemporary and again, tanneries is another vital part of that isn't it? Because he is part of the government you know. What's going on in his world? Should. Reflect what we watching on the news. Yeah I guess I. Guess in some ways, sort of a civil servant who has to adapt to each new prime minister that comes in or each new boss that comes in like he's adopted from from Judy to rife and that sense of continuity and I guess in that sense of knowing what the rules are so that you can inform the new bloods coming in yes I, think each each films I've been involved in has taken in contemporary story lines or contemporary worries and I guess yeah. Use those for the narrative. No time to die also sees the return of moneypenny 'em secretary. In early films she's more of a traditional assistant and was I played by Lois Maxwell who incidentally is being miss moneypenny more times than any actor has been burned these days though with Naomie Harris in the role she plays an important part in representing how society changed since the nineteen sixties it was such a gift of a role getting to play moneypenny in sky fool because you know for the first time it was this real bring up to date of this role and making her truly reflective of women today you know and women today are going toe to toe with men in all kinds of fields, all kinds of professions and They are respected and expect to be respected quite rightly as well, and so it was wonderful to have the opportunity to reflect that there's a moment in sky full. It's the the shootout scene in the courtroom and Bon just taps the garden with his foot tools moneypenny you just go that. Equals me I know you can do this. We are partners. Yeah. Yeah. No, that's definitely true despite it had shooting him actually which obviously was an accident but even the that I think shows a lot about his says a lot about his character actually the despite the fact that he does get short by her he still trusts her still forgives her and still willing to work alongside her I mean it's hard decision not to go back into the field, but he would happily work alongside Harrigan. Cubby Broccoli real they Albert Romolo Broccoli. Along with his colleague. Harry Saltzman, with the original producers of James Bond films these days it's his daughter Barbara and Stepson Michael who are leading operations at aliens London headquarters. Barbara grew up on the film set of bond alongside her father whereas Michael was a qualified engineer and a partner in an international tax law firm. Before he entered the world of Bond, they tell me what it's been like taking over that legacy. Lovely Line of advice. I've seen you quote from your father, which was don't let other people screw it up. A slightly. SPREAD APPLE DISHES We understand. On. A practical level. What does that mean do you think is that is that doesn't mean that you was the family have just oversee every tiny elements. Yeah. I mean as he did you know he and Harry when they started this franchise were very hands on and micromanaged everything. And you know when Michael Knight took over. I think you know we feel the responsibility of the weight of the responsibility of what they started and everyone else who began the series whether it was. Dick mayb on the writer. Terence young director everyone put their hearts and souls into these films and the audiences have come to love them. So I, think we take our responsibility very seriously and I think what he meant by that was. Don't let other people who don't have. The kind of. You know long vision who aren't. You know completely involved in this series make decisions that will. Change Bond in a way that. Might really damage bond films forever. So it was like even, but he wanted us to take risks. You know he said take risks. If you WANNA, make mistakes fine. You guys mistakes but don't let other people talk you into making mistakes i. think that's something we've tried to live by. Do you think with each new film. What would have thought of it? Oh. Yes. Of course. And I think. You know there's there's. A lot of. People we owe. Responsibility to to. Not Screw it up and. the audience. Is Big. One. Company and all the other people that were involved in the beginning. The actor SUV but their heart and soul into it writers directors. So. There's a lot of responsibility and. Knowing no time to is well as you do what do you think he would have a thought of this one in particular. I think he would have loved Daniel I really wish he'd gotten to see Daniel Because, I think he would have just loved what he did with the character and also he would love him as a person. He would love the commitment that. Daniel. Takes on when he makes these films and. Takes it so seriously and how he gives it all and I think he would really love this movie. It's just still enthralling and. It's It's such a ride. It's emotional light as well as A. As, a action adventure ride, which I think is, what makes it so great what Daniels brought to the characters? Sort of. Emotions. Company used to say that he thought automatic secret service was. Very important on film and maybe one of the best written ones. Best Stories and casino. Royale another one that he in Harrow wanted to make but never had the rights to. I think this one. Would feel the same about has. The same elements in it you know kind of. Tragic love story you know. Very emotional based. Story about bond. Coming up in the next episode bones around the world. We'll be diving into the iconic locations of James Bond Finding out how locations manager Charlie Hayes discovers those perfect backdrops creativity comes first you start them with the action of of the script you start with the context but after that nothing is impossible, we'll hear from one of the screenwriters Robert Wade the great thing is with doing a bond is that you don't worry about practicality and we'll find out why this film returns Swiss roots with producer. Bob. Really. Well Jamaica is incredibly important to the bond series because it was where in Fleming wrote all of the novels just feel felt right for the twenty fifth and it's James Bond spiritual home. Base is a production by something else subscribed to make sure you don't miss an episode.

There's the over twenty years experience in the entertainment industry, but on a personal level. I love comic books. My favorite show right now is not necessarily comic books, but in the realm of fantasy fiction is game of thrones. And coming here today. I saw a rate with his game of thrones shirt. On. So I know him in the right place. Tell true. So you're already kind of feeling connection with Ray is correct. He was trying to grab my leg earlier. So he was trying to feel some have worked if you hadn't pulled it away. Shame on you. Okay. What did I get myself into? I'm not really sure I'm not really sure the door is right there, by the way.

What if you worked on in your in your lustrous career within the realm of entertainment? Some of the first things I did were music videos as a background dancer as well as short films and TV shows some of my most favorite things are reactor re-enactors. So if you watch the Ellen show back in the day shoes to say, they're not actors, they're re-enactors, which would really suck for me. 'cause during those times doing so much reenacting I did show called. I think is crisis point where I played a criminal reenacting the real life. Cops story we had a shootout at a Bank robbery. So we were flying around El Monte, California is supposed to look like Louisiana or something flying around shooting machine-gun out of the back of a car, and it was great amazing. Stuff. Sounds like a typical Thursday to me. I know you look at rain you think like thug life. I mean, that's that's the first. I've lived many lives James Ganzi fair enough. So you been a reenactor you've been a background dancer. What have you produced? Oh, one of the things is started helping produce the short film called digital magic. Which was a kind of a fantasy movie about. A guy who creates an some kind of computer program where he sends a girl in Email. She opens it, and she gets magical hypnotizing just to do whatever he says. So that sucks situation. I'm sure that I know. Just commenting way way before the metoo movement. Now, I'm saying this.

Cinema the secret agent who was so powerful they named a trade option after him JAMES BOND. Well, done Ray. Now before we go any further. Let's go over the official rules of who would win match.

The who would win match as always a random encounter with neither side necessarily knowing anything about their opponent or having any time for pair for it. Now, the exact version of the character has to be specifically stated, for example, if you're using superman, you must specify superman from the film's animation or comic books. The winner of the who had win debate is whomever, the judge or moderator decides has the best ability to incapacitate their opponent for the at least two minutes to the green where they can safely walk away with no further threat being present.

Now, let's get to the Taylor tape or both combatants. Today's tale. The tape is rod to you by who would win t shirts. Accept no imitations. Find the official who'd when shirt on Amazon by typing hashtag who would win Ray, please. Give us the details on the joker. Joker isn't insane. Super villain from the world of DC comics. He was originally created by Bilfinger, Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson. His first appearance was in the nineteen forty comic book that man number one. His iconic look was originally based on Conrad V8.'s character from the nineteen twenty eight movie the man who laughs joker has appeared globally in over two hundred and fifty comics movies TV show. Shows video games, and basically every single type of media ever conceived smoke signals were still checking while the joker does not possess any superhuman abilities. He is a master of melee combat and firearms. Additionally, he is considered to have genius level intelligence and natural immunity to most drugs and poisons due to his constant experimentation with chemicals. He also boasts a wide array of deadly gadgets from razor tipped playing cards exploding cigars hill, electric, joy buzzers to and acid filled spray flower. He's so terrifying to other villains that fellow super villain. The trickster once said when super villains want scary gender. They tell joker stories. The joker has not significantly changed much from his original interational until today. He's the subject of philosophical writing centering around nihilism and human beings reaction to it. And on. I list of the top one hundred greatest villains of all time. Joker ranked number two behind only Darth Vader. And finally fun. Fact. The joker was originally supposed to be killed off at his first appearance in nineteen forty and if not for some editorial interference. He may have been left forgotten on the disposable billon pile of history. And that is the joker on aside. No, the jokers my favorite villain of all time me too today. All right now talk about JAMES BOND. Now JAMES BOND is a fictional British secret service agent created in nineteen fifty three by famed writer. Ian, Fleming JAMES BOND, otherwise known as double seven is intelligence officer in the secret intelligence service, commonly known as m I six, and he also serves a Royal Naval reserve commander, he is the protagonist the JAMES BOND series of three novels twenty six films as well as comments and video games. Now, JAMES BOND is the world's best known super spy who always use the latest gadgets and tech to work other secret agents, bring your national gangsters to Justice and inevitably meet and hook up with beautiful women and enthusiastic gambler. He's nearly as loyal to his signature vodka MARTINI as he is to the British crown, although bond, radiates, charisma and style, he's also intensely solitary and virtually friendless, despite the Krizman charm, JAMES BOND is rightfully considered an international bad ass having killed well over three hundred eighty people on film in almost every way imaginable on top of that bond is known for. Resort resourcefulness ability to adapt as well as his ability to escape any trap or imprisonment. He made find himself in now, JAMES BOND. Stand weapons are as Walter PK handgun and make Seamaster three hundred wristwatch built explosive charge with a one minute timer as well. And has tracking devices implanted into his body. And here's interesting facts about JAMES BOND, although he was inspired by many, friends and acquaintances of inflaming the biggest inspiration for bond was English polymath, John D And all around genius and sixteenth century bad s and his own right. John D would sign his letters to Queen. Elizabeth the first with a double o seven signifying. They were her is only. And now you have the facts on both opponents before we get started Cedric. Do you have any questions no questions, but this is going to be a tough battle? I like both characters very much chains. Bond is one of my favorite carriages all time. And just like you love the joker as villain. So this is a really excited to see what you to bring. Right. What I find interesting about this battle that. The joker would be such a natural bond villain. Yes. He would and JAMES BOND would really actually kind of fit into the DC universe. Very much. So right. So it's kind of like a seamless battle both people actually meant for each do. You know, why that actually has not happened? Why because it would be so one sided that JAMES BOND would never see piece of media ever again because he would be dead in the ground. All right, then. Yeah. I mean, it said really if you think about here. What do you think Ray when he says stuff like that? Do you think like the term socially awkward, come to mind? Like what's going on your head? Don't don't punches tell them. How great I am this close. Up-close interesting. I would just have to refer back to the leg touching earlier. So he'd be a swipe left candidate on tenders. Correct. No, no, really. Thank you. Oh, he's very appealing and what in every way, James tear you. Terry. I'm just saying what Cedric thinking. Thank you. I'm glad someone someone off. Guys. The the nonsense. Go ahead rate with point number one. Sure. And point number one for the joker is something. I'm just gonna call something unpredictable because JAMES BOND will not have the time of his life at the end of this meeting. In fact, his life will be cut exceptionally short. The joker is going to be look JAMES BOND has fought many insane villains. One of my favorites. Christopher Walken view to a kill where he dumps people out of his blimp from their own chairs, he's dealt with crazy his entire life. He has never. Over dealt with the level of crazy. Equal to the joker JAMES BOND is used to a certain level of playing field. He's used to a certain level of British culture, a certain politeness that will happen. And the joker will flat out. Give him all that politeness in spades. The jokers not going to be rude. He will absolutely come up and smile at your face and say something knife. And then stick a knife in the side of your neck because that's who the joker is. And that is not what JAMES BOND is going to be ready for in fact, I would even argue that JAMES BOND is a guy who gets captured all the time. James BOND in every single movie is constantly being outwitted outsmarted and thrown into death traps for the purposes of this battle joker doesn't even need to get to the death trap, arson of our our evening, all these gotta do is incapacitate or knocked unconscious JAMES BOND with something clever and let me check here. He's a genius who out maneuvers outsmarts every single enemy that he's ever faced when going to metropolis to fight superman. He was asked pointblank. Why are you going to fight superman? He goes because I wanted to put this on easy mode for a change. He's that sharp and confident in his own abilities. Not just that I know that this is a chance encounter. This would be a situation where the two didn't have time to prepare head of time. I would argue that the joker is always prepared with an array of traps and gadgets every place. He goes, you're not gonna find the joker at a place that he doesn't have full command of walking in the. Door. And I don't know if that's cheating, but the joker would she'd. Anyway. So I think that that is a fair point to make so given his wildly unpredictable nature. Given the fact that he would have at least a half dozen traps and surprises set up before we even get started for JAMES BOND, and given the fact that JAMES BOND is prone to fall into every single trap known to men kind. The joker would clearly have a strong advantage over JAMES BOND. Not a good. I have a question. I'd love to answer it James. Thank you. So you're saying the joker has traps everywhere. So he's always prepared. I might have to go back and listen to the tape. But that sounds accurate. He walks in Chuck, Chucky cheese. Yes. Probably all the time. Well, no, they already have traps, I'm saying there will be other traps there, you mean besides the quarter traps with the crane machine that doesn't work right? Whatever you do at Chucky cheese. Right. So what if there's other traps saying he's already got traps there? He goes to I don't know stadium in New York. There's already you're saying everywhere he goes he wouldn't go there if he didn't have traps. So if we're gonna take this as the realistic joker that we know from the comic books, he's never going to go to an unfamiliar place that he's not ready for and I know it's a chance encounter, but the joker is so thinks ahead, and he's so powerful. And so smart, he wouldn't let himself in a place that he doesn't have six traps already. So you guys Cedric in, you know, character ratio Google, yes. Okay. So racial Google this, you know, beyond super villain almost like a JAMES BOND villain wants to kind of take care of the destroy. Roy the world radically third or half the population. Right. And he's like an echo kind of terrorist thing. So one one comic book, you know, jokers flying in racial ghouls private plane. You're saying Ray that joker has traps set up in his private plane assuredly he might not have used them in this specific instance. But he absolutely is ready for anything to given moment. Pre planning. Okay. Moving his regular life is difficult grocery shopping like you couldn't grocery store. He has minions for that James has millions. I'm gonna go goes to Ralphs grocery store and buys himself. Todd. No bring him things. He would enjoy it caused chaos Cedric. Let me just go to you. I already know already know that you'll never Cass Ray. In anything you do. Very difficult to work with. I don't see that at all. I don't say. Thank you. But as a moderator I'm gonna ask you to veto that comment that he has traps everywhere. He hasn't been everywhere a random encounter. Well, aren't you? Oh, the everywhere coming into be fair in Russia goals planet. Let me just one more example before I allow you to get to point number one Razzaq was playing you don't think the joker walking on that plane with slip and stuff in the little side things where the seats are. And he wasn't putting bombs in place. He didn't do. But he would do it as he's there. He's always setting things up. He's always thinking ten steps ahead. So maybe he didn't maybe he didn't do trap. Russia goes plan before getting on it. But I assure you that by the time he gets there booby-trapped like the bathroom used it. James UB trap the bathroom as far as I could tell what. That's a boo boo. Trav-? Are so good. Well, as we can't plug hometown buffet is sponsoring more than they are delight. Have you had the chocolate pudding? They put marshmallows on top the rose people looks like the chocolate pudding, which is why I don't go down. Anyway, there's nothing against town. But they Ray show there shouldn't judge such dirty mouth for making fun Tampa dairy out. Let me get the point number one Cedric. How you doing by the way? It's amazing. I'm having a great time fantastic. All right. So point number one, I'm gonna call this a licensed to kill. So I'd wager that when it comes to affectively putting stop to the joker that JAMES BOND is better suited for it than Batman. Why? Well, Batman doesn't kill JAMES BOND on the other hand. Well, his government is literally giving him thirty to kill as he sees fit. Let's go back to Batman for a moment. If you think about it Batman and JAMES BOND have a lot in common. They both have a lot of training can fight exceptionally. Well, has Pacific tech and gadgets disposal. The both very intelligent. But the big difference. Is at Batman won't kill. Whereas JAMES BOND will now Ray let me ask you really interesting comp question says, you why do you think that will he'll try to avoid it as much can think Batman won't kill again. At least does his best to avoid it. Why Batman will not kill because he has a moral code given. What has happened to his parents? So even in a case of a horrible people like the joker Batman will refuse to kill. Because once he has crossed that threshold. He becomes the thing that he seeks to prevent your only about half. Right. Here's the thing makes dreams. As watching that rally show to catch a predator. And I'm sure that was raise a best performance I've ever seen James few too. So well, it was ridiculous. I just really like sweet tea. Can you have a seat over here? All right now. Now, the reason why Batman doesn't kill that. You're right. You hit on have at the other reason. Why is because of Batman does kill. He knows that he'll actually like it, and he'll go there. And then become not just what he doesn't like but will actually use killing as his new weapon of choice and that just opens up Pandora's box. Now, that's what makes us such a fun match up because JAMES BOND has opened that box. I think he was three when he killed his first person or whatever he's fine with it. He's good to go. And that's the problem if you have to run into someone like the joker. You have a license to kill. You've had experience with super villains. In the craziest of the crazy. What is your psychological analysis that be done high? Tell you to do with the joker. Do you? Engage with them. Do you talk with them to play the no kill them immediately, you shoot them right away. Unfortunately that something that James wants gonna do. Now. There's an interesting action in a Batman and punisher crossover event in the nineteen. Ninety must be relevant. The joker was working with the punisher, villain jigsaw. And long story short the punisher goes after the joker. The joker thinking the punisher would operate under the same rules as Batman silly stops running and tells the punisher, okay, you got me bring me to Arkham, right? I give the punishment forms joker that he has no problem with killing him does putting a very mean looking gun to his forehead and pretty much saying you're done. The joker actually gets unnerved when he realizes that the punishers about to pull the trigger. Thankfully, Batman of all people shows up and saves joker from the punisher. And the point is that the jokers far less effective against someone who's not only willing to kill him. But who also won't hesitate to pull the trigger and that is a great way to describe JAMES BOND. So James Bond's finding ability is experience with similar characters the joker his gadgetry. It's very likely random, and I'm planning counter that he'll have an opportunity taking the joker and pull the trigger. In other words, his licence to kill will definitely. Extend to the joker. That's my point number one. That was a good point. Yes. That was so close to being a good point. I understand why you would make that mistake Cedric, by the way, you're looking very nice today. The point that very nice JAMES BOND. So according to your logic here, JAMES BOND sees super crazy villain. He pulls out his pistol and shoots that villain. The first time he meets him and doesn't try to be suave or Prosser British or anything. So JAMES BOND movies traditionally eighteen minutes long apiece. They typically don't reach the half hour point sometimes they should be. But no, I so I guess what I'm saying is maybe JAMES BOND. Of course, if you have a gun, you could shoot it anytime you wanted to. But that's not who JAMES BOND is as a person of JAMES BOND was to meet the joker in a chance encounter. You would think you would think her Hachinohe person would pull out his gun and shoot right away. But that is not the MO of double o seven 007 often has a mission to think. About he's I mean. Yes, a license to kill is out there. But he wants to talk. He wants to be swamped. He wants to get in the door. He wants to manipulate the villains that he's around and it never works out for him. So well, yes in theory, he could just pull out his gun and shoot. And who knows how that goes a gunfight with the joker is no sack bananas. What? I would argue that this is not the approach that JAMES BOND logically would take an encounter like this. And so therefore should be discredited outright. Two things one you talk like my rabbi, it's kind of interesting. We all have many, costumes and disguises Jayme. When the joke is going to be there and start doing crazy things. All right. Just saying. All right. Have you got to your second point yet? Because your your mind tricks are kind of playing with I haven't even begun to second point yet, sir. I guess what? I was saying. I was hoping you were done with your second point. I bet you do. Okay. Go ahead. What is your point? Maybe I should just give a pass to point number two because I'm checking the scorecard. So far ahead right now. Do they even do final rounds after a knockout? I don't remember. I'll go ahead and do my second point. Anyway, what the heck? And the second point. I have is where does he get those wonderful toys JAMES BOND is used to traditional methods of combat. Yes. There is the occasional bowler hat thrown with sharpened knife on it. And maybe Richard Kiel as jaws has powerful. But you can see those things coming to a point. The joker is has wide array of gadgets brought up in the opening stanza these razor coded throwing cards. He just would pull out a deck of cards and talk to James von. And this is how I see it happening is JAMES BOND. The joker meet each other pleasantries find day. Oh, yes. It is. I'd like some t o t sounds delicious. Let me show you a car trick JAMES BOND because we haven't necessarily seen each other as adversaries yet. At least a one of us hasn't the elements surprise here to go back to the unpredictability of point one JAMES BOND is going to see an elect. Trich death. Joy buzzer coming James before we have this fights being British man of style in privilege. I would just like to shake your hand before we fight. And he's dead right there on the spot or JAMES BOND doesn't have a healing factor. James BOND is just a human being a will trained human being sure, but a human being all the same or perhaps you get close, and they have a conversation. He says James I'd like to compliment you on your lapels and James's. We'll thank you. I being a fine refined British man, I would love to take your comp and then a scored of the acid flower shoots him right in the face. Now. He's disfigured. You think he's going to be able to get all the babes when he's got a dark man face. I don't think so James. And not just the weapons that the joker can use one of his opening comic books. He pulled out a sword. And at a sword fight with Batman and defeated him in a sword. Fight Batman is trained ninja. And joker defeated him. In a spare sword flight, not to mention his ability with firearms? Yes. These firearms. The joker has comical oftentimes they shoot a little bang flag out. And then the second one is the bullet that goes through that blows your head off JAMES BOND. His simply not ready for the array of gadgetry at that's not even bringing up. The traps joker has something called joker. Venom that he uses all the time. I mean, this is goes back to literally issue number one of Batman all the way through to the Batman as we know in love him from the movie universe today. And since the character hasn't changed that much. I think that's a fair statement. He uses the joker. Venom to kills people. He paralyses people. He disfigures people all at the same time joker has a natural immunity to this poison. So if things are for some how reason looking rough if JAMES BOND, even does the thing you said in point one and just pulls out his pistol and starts firing away willy nilly like, I guess. He would not the joker could just pull a joker venom bomb. Throw it on the ground explode the room in one of them can breathe that and the other one cannot so in a battle of wits. I'm sorry. 007 has double oh, nothing on the joker. And that is my point number two. A mirror on a scale of one to ten where one is horribly ugly and ten is very attractive where you where do you put Ray right now where where do you think he fits is? He, you know, great points in a debate make one much sexier than they might appear otherwise married, you agree with that. Or does your that be honest? What do you say? Cedric honest. I kinda kinda agree. Thank you with who. Political agree. Cedric on a scale of one to ten. You're very attractive. Do you find Ray, right? I eleven is an option here just. Jacob five is where I think you're going with this. I think mirror very pretty that's gonna. What I hear you saying is this is a room of very good looking people. Are you including everyone this time? I'll tell you what many people everybody on of us is pretty good looking Mira when she's making a circle with her hand, the circle is staying towards Cedric, myself and her. It is not ending the Amir of. -ssume that just doing that to say do I have to include James in the circle. Him outside much like James Bond's body would be left outside in the cold. After this. Oh, cruel. Okay. Okay. So you're thinking the choker and JAMES BOND. Meet first thing they do is. They have so much respect preach other that they exchange pleasantries. Absolutely. Yes. That's what James does. Absolutely. I remember that one film. I forgot that the quantum where he meets the the ultimate villain who's an absolute lunatic. And the first thing he does says, I love your coat. It's fantastic. Where'd you get that coat? It's amazing. And then they shook hands, and then they complimented each other that. Mad anti even play cards across the table at a casino casino royale, James literally happened, really they were commenting jackets. They were they might have been complimenting in their heads fair enough. But they were civil to begin. Okay. And I'm sorry for your luck in this battle. May not be lucky in this battle. But you're lucky in life. I am you've got a lot to look forward to James you've got other chances after today. Lucky? You lucky me? All right. Let me get to point number two because this'll address all my counterpoint Cedric before we do you have any questions concerns, paradigm shifts point, number two. None of not not that point. I'm just saying what's we haven't giving up already James gab sie. Eat really, I am asking an honest question on west. Let's see the last time. I gave up was when I was looking for a new moderate or komo's and I found Ray, and I'm like, I don't need to continue the search anymore. That's because once you achieve perfection. It's all down a nice comment. I said this guy clearly walks outside wearing a helmet and a sticker that says don't feed me chocolate and has misused in life. I'm like, I'm gonna give him a chance. Look, very plugged up. If I have too much chocolate that is a very good reason for that sticker. No, no, no problem. Okay. So point number two, I'm gonna call this been there done that. And when it comes to deranged lunatics within comic books there are few of any characters that can keep up with the joker. I gotta agree with Ray on this one hundred percent within films, however, especially JAMES BOND films. The joker would simply be another villain of the week. Unfortunately. And it's it's no disrespect to the jokers. It's actually a lot of respect to bond. Villains. See for JAMES BOND, taking on deranged lunatics. He's absolutely been there done all of that. Sure. The joker likes to plant traps. Even has no prep time, Sir, James bond may fall for some traffic, but how many times has JAMES BOND escapes all of them. And what's the joker going to do in unexpected one on one encounter that JAMES BOND hasn't already seen or dealt with in some way, shape or form? James BOND, never outside an opponent who had their own personal and somewhat unknown agenda for one to kill people destroy await he actually did do that in all of his films, JAMES BOND. Let me see I guess he never shot and killed a dangerous killer in cold blood. As soon as that killer was in sight await he did do that a lot as well in films for this out still JAMES BOND camp fight shooter plan for something literally minutes ahead during a fight to take down dangerous people, and he never found out the hiding places anyone was looking for nor was he ever able to obey death at the hands at their hands due to a combination of his skills and being super resort. Damn. Yeah. I was running again, he did do all of that. In every freaking movie. He's been in the joker is actually kind of that perfect bond villain. Again. The joker has aspects of almost every major villain crime Lord or would be world conqueror that JAMES BOND has had to go up against. And that's the problem for the joker acid being shot. From flower James see coming mile away razor-sharp poison poisoned, throwing cards JAMES BOND space way worse than that. Predictable fighting style. That's actually a problem when you can decide to not fight it, all and just shoot the person you're facing as I mentioned before. In fact, a point unless mix gives the order to bring in the joker a live. There won't be a hesitation on behalf of JAMES BOND to shoot them and ask questions much later. If he even bothers ask questions at all, However, James Bond's greatest strength against his opponents, which will work really well against the joker is the fact that he himself is mentally unhinged. Now to what level I'm not, really sure. But especially the most recent JAMES BOND portrayed by Daniel. Craig clearly reveals that he's completely in his element. When it comes to blowing things up maiming his opponents and killing whoever needs to or just wants to plus his maniacal approach to what he does cause them to never stop in till he gets the job done in short James Bond's experience with mastermind psychopaths. And the worst world has offer has made them very well prepared to dispose of someone like the joker. And that's my point number two. I mean, an excellently argued the point is terrible. But you're. Argument was fantastic. Like, my style. I do. Oh. When you look at me in the eyes as you say that dreamy it. No, no, I'm dreaming that you would come up with such a terrible point for point to. Let me tell you how much fiber you eating these really need more to fiber one eight you know, what I find is rubbing your stomach something I'd like to see for some odd. He's doing it. Now. Yeah. I I am. I was wrong. I was wrong. I don't wanna see that. It was uncomfortable for me too. Okay. Thank you for engaging. Let me tell you. Yes. If this was a JAMES BOND movie and the joker happened to be the villain of the JAMES BOND movie. Yes. At the end of three and a half hours, however long. They stretched these gosh darn things out for anymore JAMES BOND with one hundred percent find a way to be victorious because that's how the movies work. However, the very first encounter JAMES BOND typically has with villain he loses. So if all we're talking about is the first encounter now if we're talking the fifth encounter, I'll give it to JAMES BOND. I think he could figure something out maybe, but we're talking about a chance encounter and James Bond's record in chance encounters is very very poor. And just to reiterate so point I made before the joker doesn't have to get to the death trap portion of tonight's festivities. The joker just have to knock JAMES BOND unconscious to win this battle, which is something JAMES BOND is truly familiar with. I actually I really liked that point counter that with this. What happened in sky fall when it came to JAMES BOND? You pretend Batman it was weird. It was a little weird. But he took he took down and heavier bar Dem's character evil mastermind fairly early in the film. Now, of course, have your character was wanting to be captured to get closer to mix and exact revenge. So he just did a thing that the guy wanted him to do this truly good point. No, keep going. You're making my argument for me to say, I just I'm sorry. The visual of Ray. I I I'm very look. I'm just glad we have gay biking's in studio today. That's all it's it's it's. I'm all for this. I'm all for this. I am a happy fellow. That's why it's touching. You're like, okay. Now. That also makes me happy. It does. We're about to get to the turning point the crucial point where Cedric the producer shorthair will tell us who's ahead, and what the other character has to do to pull out a victory. But before we do, I'm actually curious Amir. What do you think about this battle who do you think is winning the so far who's ahead? Honestly, I honestly think the joker is. I think the joker is because. I don't think while while JAMES BOND is, you know, calculating, and he's very experienced, and he can probably see things from mile away. He has not encountered any lunatic like the joker. So while you think you can be predictable. And why you think you can see the jokers moves from mile away joker is equally as as experienced with you know, that amount of time. He's equally as experienced in being a lunatic. And he just got to get creative as time goes as he's still around. So I think jokers really all over the apologize. I wasn't listening to. The point. I was. March you sound right now. Hometown buffet at spice action. Is there music playing right now because I hear it off in the distance. It's just making mental news to hire. A new engineer. All right. Well, that was a complete waste of time. So. For the record Cedric before we for James before he hands the floor over to right candy coat it for James, please make him feel. He's very sensitive, man. And. I don't wanna see tears in the studio. I mean, he is just witnessed so. Yes. You do what you need to do. But just you know, pull back a little bit for his for his psyche. Oh, okay. So for James just going back a little bit actually wanted to give you a point for the impression of your Europe was amazing. I'll be honest if it was an impression based battle. I've already lost. If you've done, but in terms of the the combatants now, it's it's pretty close, but I'm gonna have to side with a mirror right now. Because notice how he didn't say side with me. Remember that circle. I won't forget. Now, it's more of a line between her and Cedric both out of the circle. What would need to happen is? I would need to see how JAMES BOND can compensate for. No prep time right now Ray made a point about gadgets. Joker already has gadgets. All the time and typically JAMES BOND has to prepare for that of knowing who is gonna face, and then he goes to Q gives the gadgets. So what is he going to do to overcome those gadgets and that lack of prep time? I have a point. This was a hard battle to prepare for because I'm not this agreeing. Thank you or Amirah. I think raise points are horrible. But. But you would Amir brought some excellent cable. I do have a point number three. That's really out of the box new would have to be absolutely absolutely. So with that being said, I get it. I respect your opinions. Both of you for that matter. Talking up. Where? Do you go after the debates, by the way, what's your life? What's a life of Ray after the show like you walk out? It's raining in Los Angeles. Is you which penthouse do I feel like gracing today penthouse meeting box with holes at the corner of the street, penthouse means different things to different people James. Okay. It's not wrong. He's not wrong. I hear that a lot yet oak. A family show. It is so okay, Ray hit us with your point number three. Please point number three. And this is where the clobbering time happens is called. He's just not that into you. Oh, I see some heads turning. Where is Ray going with this personal experience? Joker has been up against Batman for a very very long time. Batman is maybe the greatest planner the greatest tactician on a battlefield comic. Book world has ever known and joker consistently out thinks him at work and defeats him and put to put him in a death trap of some kind. However after joker defeats Batman. He doesn't just put a gun in his mouth and boom away. Why? And the answer is because Batman has the code. Batman is interesting. Batman will not kill despite being a brutal character JAMES BOND is the most boring hero on the planet. Ian Fleming when he came up with the name JAMES BOND said it was the most boring name, I could possibly come up with because the idea of JAMES BOND movie is he is wildly uninteresting. But interesting things happen around him as much as possible. The joe. Is not going to be impressed by JAMES BOND at all. He's just another victim. As far as the joker is going to think. So when it comes time to pull the trigger if batmans at the other end of the gun, the joker will have hesitation, the joker would save that man if it meant being able to potentially put him in a death trap that causes him to question. Morality later, JAMES BOND doesn't have that going for him JAMES BOND has a license to kill. You said he killed his first person at the age of three. I by the way, I made that up. I have no idea. I'll be honest. I'm going to accept it. As fact because it works against you for this point a guy who runs around killing people, right and left with no compunctions about it going to be the most boring person, the joker could ever hope to face. So if you think there's going to be mercy, if you think there's going to be a mistake made, they're just plain isn't because the joker mentally already checked out of this battle. He doesn't even need to worry. About preserving his life. He's going to extinguish him like a moth aflame, and that will be the end of JAMES BOND. He will find the method to subdue him because that's how every JAMES BOND fight goes. That's hell most joker fights go. And then instead of dragging him to some infernal machinery to pull him from cotton candy, presser whatever the joker feels like doing today. He's going to say just not that into you and pull the trigger to his head right there. He's just not interesting enough, James. And that is my point number three. Wow. Pop-up up quite a stretch that was but it actually plays into my final point to. Just outrageous. I know. The reason why they came up with JAMES BOND is a name, by the way in Fleming. Did was because you're partially right influence like I need a name that won't draw attention to a super spy, right? You can't have a super spy called, you know, super spy fan, magnificant or whatever. I would think you were a superstar. You think you'd have grandparents and with great parents comes great responsibility. But no, make your making your mind on how attractive rate is by the way that I keep looking better and better and better. Nothing in my. Still there. Unfortunately, our listeners can't see such a thing. You're a handsome Man Ray. I know would be something. No one at this table would say ever. Would you say that cetera? I would not see that. I don't generally tell men that their hands. There's nothing wrong with someone. I believes might make an exception for someone as good looking as me don't you have a point to make. Clearly, there's a reason he stalling, and that's because he knows this battle his already one is definitely a hard battle. No joke. Okay. The best way to beat. The joker actually is to let the joker beat himself. The here's the thing. I don't disagree with racing that if the joker and a chance encounter jokers going to kinda toy which aims on the way joker does toy with people JAMES BOND might have that singular mindset, but I do believe the jokers gonna see something in JAMES BOND. He's gonna see something very intriguing talk about the actual fight. So JAMES BOND. The jokers villain that needed to be stopped. The joke on the other hand is gonna probably recognize certain aspects JAMES BOND that he sees in Batman remember there's super super similar they're so similar you remember that it was nineteen ninety six. How could I forget marvel and DC did the Amil game series where they combine characters who did Bruce Wayne get combined with? I'm going to assume someone not very powerful with. No, he was called Bruce Wayne agent of shield. They made him a JAMES BOND character in the comic books says he's a Nick fury kind of character. Maybe your point. I'm sure make sense. Do you keep going? Swinging. He may win the battle. But at life. He's he's lost stalling Kathy fair enough. Okay. So the recognizes certain aspects and JAMES BOND in season Batman, this might make the joker suddenly decide that JAMES BOND is a new playmate. Just like Batman is. And the joker may wanna keep double of seven alive as if he's dead. There's no more fun to be had. That's something he mentions about that, man. All the time when it comes to Batman, the joker, also desires, more than Justice, demise. He wants to drive them hopelessly insane to him. That man is a stuck up. Humorless bore worse. Joker believes that Batman really wants to go insane. And that he's hiding some type of I dunno closet of sanity cloaks himself in order to deny what he really really wants. So most of joker schemes route revolve around driving Batman insane. That joker is ultimate victory. Just as the joker tried to do that to Bruce Brusco Commissioner Gordon in the killing joke when he shot, Barbara, Gordon, and then took you know. Commissioner Gordon to that circus, and then showed pictures of Barbara, Gordon is kind of weird it only takes one bad day bad day. And you know, the joker even said in. I think it was Batman. RIP? I've driven myself crazy trying to loosen them up. The joker would see JAMES BOND not as an opponent. But rather as a challenge and just the joker wants to psychologically break, the Batman instead of Kilmainham. He wanted to the same thing to JAMES BOND as entering that. May be interesting that may be an ongoing comic book series. It would make for a very short lived fight in a random counter like who would win match. Here's how I see it going the joker JAMES BOND encounter each other JAMES BOND sees a joker someone who should be removed. The joker sees JAMES BOND. Someone who sticks to his narrowly defined moral code, whatever that may be. And that would be like dangling carrot in front of, you know, joker the joker within wants a mentally and morally break JAMES BOND killing him at that moment, which is doubtful would end the game too soon in a way that wouldn't represent a windfarm, at least exempts acceptable. When the joker would see that JAMES BOND is a very tough challenge that would have to be conquered over time, which means the first encounter would either have the joker captured or have them surrender or have miscarried. So as. Has to prolong the process of understanding his new opponent short. The joker would gladly take. I encounter loss. If it meant that the game breaking JAMES BOND could go on so JAMES BOND James wants little license to kill and this is to kill his familiarity and experience with psycho pass and with would be world conquerors, his millions villains of all types in jokers desire to play with people over the long term in order to break them emotionally, psychologically. I just don't see a way for JAMES BOND to lose this battle. And that's my point number three. Bless your little heart. This must be very difficult for you. Ray you are adorable. I know. What does that third point having common with mister fantastic of the fantastic four? It is stretched beyond the realm of comprehension. How could you possibly have your haymaker point three be literally the thing? I just refuted five seconds earlier. You posit it insane world with a joker meets humorless murders. All the time secret agent, JAMES BOND. It doesn't see him as a cannon fodder. Oh, this fellow's, very interesting. Despite the fact his entire core of his being is not very interesting. That's what he knew when he. Who? Okay. So you're saying series going you're saying James Bond's non interesting correct to the joker. Correct. How would the joker say how why put me in the mind of the joker? Okay. Oh, this is a bad place to be James. I'll try. Better. Put this pen down something might happen. Yes, you are. Now, speaking to the essence of the joker. The joke. The essence of the joke. Okay. So I can't hold on very long James. This is a very scary place to be. So the joker means JAMES BOND. The Joe bang how it's over he's dead. Unfortunately, was me who shot because. Yes, please. Okay. The joker. How smart is the joker genius love. Right. How perceptive Izzy exceptionally? So he's not gonna be able to recognize the craziness the tendencies of JAMES BOND. The similarities to Batman the JAMES BOND has I just don't think it's even close Halloween. I'm sorry, JAMES BOND. Witnesses parents murdered in an alley after seeing deflator mouse. No, he was just brought up imposs- British feet royalty type life and then joined the secret service because he was good at killing blue suit. The thing is Jalen assess this last question would do think that the henchmen of the joker lead, very long lives. No because he doesn't see them as having value because they are people. He does not respect walking into harlequin. Does not have a time about her most of the time. In fact, he tortures Harley, Quinn wise. He's interested in her interesting. So interesting, she if that. Interesting to the joker, right? That person's interesting to the joker. Yes. They last a while they will last a very very long time. And if your argument is going to be Ian Fleming's own admission, he's the most boring man in the room if play that character is going to appeal to jokers sense of fun. In fleming. Never said the character was boring. He said the character had to have it boring. Name. What's the difference? Why did the carry look at your name raised to Keno is a pretty interesting name? Let's just look at Ray raise a pretty like how big of a character. Are you raise a pretty you should've stopped there. I had to because I caught myself halfway through. I couldn't I couldn't force myself that can complete that. But Ray is your name, right? Common. But it's an interesting character, them know, exactly. So the joker would see handed or the JAMES BOND is extremely interesting character he likes to take on really if this ultimately, I would I would throw this the judges because gosh, willing you're out of time. Really believe JAMES BOND is somebody that joker would see as more than a menial henchmen along his way to greater pray and a more interesting combat later on the day if the answer is who JAMES BOND what a fascinating what's going on inside. That guy's head. I would like to find out. I'm of course, he's gonna find out by knocking him unconscious. I and winning the battle. Anyway, I guess if this is the question you wanna posit to our lovely judge Cedric Cedric. I don't know if I mentioned looking very fit today very much in shape, he workout it sounded like he just said you look very thick today. Well, thankfully, I didn't really that would've been mirrors that what he said. No, okay. Thank you. Anyway. I would just say if that's the question deposit to our Joe, you're welcome to this. Let's go to the let's go the moderator Cedric. You've heard both sides. Let's go ahead. Make your decision. Give us your wisdom. Tell us who do you think wins Titanic battle while? I'm thinking about it. I'll tell. Oh, you some of the points thinking. James BOND goes for that killing stroke. So that's that's that's a good right there. That's a point for James. He's just another villain of the week to JAMES BOND. He has dealt with crazy people with weird like gold fetishes like just random stuff. But raise some great points to. Unpredictable gadgets on the ready who I'm gonna have to think about this quick second take all the time you need. What do you think? Who do you think when this fight JAMES BOND or the joker the joker? Okay. Why? Because over the other stuff, I said earlier, and I thought you might touch on it. Maybe you sorta did by the way your third points. Very interesting. I would have never thought of anything like that. But I simply believe joker. Just does not fight fair like JAMES BOND. It's always him. It's always him being out in the fields always have to accomplish the mission etcetera etcetera on his ego, probably won't allow him to call in for backup anyways. Because if he did call in for backup, he would lose immediately just for the record. I don't outside interference. That's right. You can't you can't have outside cannot and but the joker. It's his nature to call in whatever. Who wants to call in and order to win the fight or sensually torture? Whoever's and his sights I say joker. Joker joker. Let's go back to Cedric Cedric. What are you thinking after telling the votes? The winner is. The joke is so this is a soldier. He was a beautiful, man. I told you he was a genius when we had them in the studio chains you were doubtful. I knew I knew the whole time in let me tell you. Why? Praise me more. Unfortunately, James with your last point it kind of helped the joker win. Thank you. The fact that the joker would play with JAMES BOND and keeping around longer. It means the JAMES BOND would probably do what he does normally which is get caught in a trap when he first meets the villain, and that counts for incapacitation. So if he can't escape that trap in about like, two minutes, he wins the battle. You know? I can't disagree with that the way I see this kind of really playing out is that joker comes out ahead in the first random encounter if JAMES BOND serves survives it. He goes back plans gets the tech and comes back with something to hopefully capture the joker. But it'll be better off. I think this. This is definitely a learning experience Virginia. And then comes back better. But I do I gotta say I actually agree with the decision and let me just say JAMES BOND with a plan and time is not somebody. I would want to mess, right? Given the chance encounter nature of it. I think that absolutely the right decision was made today. It was the better argued point. So it makes it a lot. A lot easier for us all. If this was a death match Chaim bond would have had a better chance because you can just it can passively. That's right. That's right. And JAMES BOND does have a long history of getting incapacitated. That's. Of his every movie, I didn't even make this point. And I regret it now because I have it right here. But JAMES BOND is some would claim JAMES BOND is a title, it's not necessarily a specific person. So the fact that he's been portrayed by so many different people might reveal that he has been killed five or six times. That's true. That's true. That's true. Being a Highlander JAMES BOND kind of thing. Right. Okay. Cool. Well, this was a very interesting battle very well debated on behalf of Ray Ray. This is your first official who would win victory, man. Has it feel it feels like there should be so many more? I feel like I may have even won four or five battles in the time. It took us to do this one. I'm on a winning streak right now is what I'm trying to say. I'm on a winning streak that I don't think we'll ever be snapped. We're looking at Harlem Globetrotters, like level of success in my future. I see so much common going with you. And I have a lot in common with the Harlem Globetrotters, such as we've seen the world were men of culture and grace, and we always win. Did you did you win the very first battle of who would win that you in the hearts and minds of America. Absolutely. Very cool. Okay. So Cedric day cue for a Andrea on the show.

How Many James Bond Theme Songs

"How many how many how many how manny one two three five six nine ten who what i get up to hello everyone welcome to a new episode of how many the only podcast that accounts on the internet and the only guests that is so great we do it twice only restored twilight years this. This is my second life twice. Mr bond movie. I am one of your host jesse jackson tonight. We we have bob junior scott and a special guest contested host subject matter expert king of the bond fan club while while jones while generals from the one cr so people do win. Yeah you want to see our members. You too can be a guest host subject matter expert. Just send us your request. Let us know what topic you want to cover and we will make room for your bed for two years. You finally get on the show. Yeah we're kind of in a bond james bond mode <hes> we had the movie and we had an episode where we talked about the different bond women and so for musical perspective. We're gonna talk about bond. Themes beans tonight so we've got twenty two different unique songs but we want to talk to start out with the iconic bond theme song about the james bond. They are very fascinating like excellent really really riveted. I am edgy like oh. Oh my god well. It's more case of the main bon eight. The signature dean was featured in every production bond villain since doctor tone uh tale. It sounds very i am going to shout my buddies in secrets. Uh a rock band place area <hes> with the great bill on lead who's also in petty theft guitar <hes> aw that iraq's that thing they they come out and they do spy music concert music if they do the peter gunn theme also they yes. They do secret agent man by johnny advanced. Although as we all know the version is the best version of secret agent now con gran being an go to this road the thing that is a great question and scott downhill now. Originally i would have thought john berry berry's brother. Yes chance one or rick perry's but thinking matt we would probably be one is not. John very actually assumed twice to try to get control of that. It was actually written by a man named monty. Norman is credited writing at the full monty probably yeah he's the years since nineteen sixty two click around four hundred eighty five thousand pounds in royalty. I don't know what that is an american so it is he's such a fool theme and such a big sound. I must've been with what the two hundred three piece orchestra. I mean that recorded in one thousand nine hundred sixty to only use five nine and a solo guitar. It was recorded on a show. That figure got to be better that was actually it was on a flipper essex. Aragon deluxe plugged into a fender bender walks apple. Let's see wrecking crude vic flick flick. I wanted as part of the country but this was probably in britain was the nineteen thirty nine english clifford essex guitar so i'm qatar it's but do you think people learned that arith- when they're like one of the things they want that's nothing yeah so so when you go to guitar shop and they'd doing the sample trials guitarist harvey weinstein no stairway anyway denied seriously that's great information in monitoring be happen also know who invented the long island iced tea it someplace peanut show actually worked out better better than yes in case you figured out. We record this whole episode. We'll buy minutes of it doc. This was a easy and over an hour discussion. We had so much fun then. When we close we went to quarter and it was dead or then. All of the circuits have been fried. Yeah johnny by was no longer alive again one more information about this uh who's recorded until on twenty first of june okay so yes you're you. They said this is interesting. This is talk doug naked five six nine rhythm guitar. You think you're just now for a little bit. Exactly you give you some more fun facts. I i doubt jesse's relaxed a._l. L. springsteen guests when they tell us what our witnesses neutrality show junior wrap aluminum foil around the plug before he that's so versus now before we get into the theme song list scott. I noticed that there was some news is that came out. Recently on new version of volume breaking news savan yesterday got new james bond now. I'm a little bit now is because obviously she's not james bond but she's double of right. Yes the side hit james albus. Yes it's going to leaving new assigned. I had a feeling that might be recording this and <hes> i was doing some research and it was there. It is very unclear they do. She'll be a double but she isn't necessarily james bond replacement so then we're still in the upcoming by now how they handle his exit strategy. I don't know maybe she's the one that kills him or tires. Rid uh james bond i mean i think that would be that. I mean are they just way to expand the uni- universal and give a other person the double o seven so he will she will be the new double o seven daniel craig will be retiring but james bond we'll be retiring and she will be assigned so to get rid of the cared to throw in workless trivia that that we all love and that we all are very patient. There was one of the show runners when they brought dr who back he said that every time there's a new james bond we tend to we pretend oh this james bond. It's always been james bond and we just don't acknowledge their previous ones and one of the things about after who is they acknowledged that every actor is different there. There is now than thirteen doctors at versus like james bond. Everyone is like oh. We never had a character named james long before this movie with the age of the cruiser reincarnation yeah exactly which is how they can explain the different appearances and i never thought about that because you know you just accept like oh. There's a new actor. Playing james bonded oh good. We're going to enjoy it so i thought that was kind of interesting twists any other thoughts by the way i love the actress she was great in in captain marvel yeah and so i got no problem with that <hes> so i think the interesting i'm willing to give it a chance. It sounds like it may be a little little weird but we've seen instances where they recast things and recast genders words kind of worked out so willing to give it a try and reserve reserved judgement and as we talked about in the episode where we talked about the movies <hes> it is it is. I can't unusual yeah sternum. Oh yeah we we all. I said we'd be fine. Being bond is good and luther the show he was good in the wires. Stringer bell yeah four movies. He hasn't hasn't got a hundred credit. You know except for a very limited scope. We want a good actor playing the role and we were okay with you know it's okay with the gender. It's okay with the race. It's just isn't a good actor. We can live without so versus. Just gonna be a british white out for me is is going to i have to be a fit is james. Bond or is it is a von flick or is it now just because your theory is as good as the annual craig is. They don't feel like it's a bond flick and so okay so it's almost like the bond void might kinda get filled by kingsman xy eggs z. They keep having those with the kingsman movies yeah. That's kind of those out there yeah. He's got another. That's kind of an american modernize auburn down by the way the kingston pretty good command a._b._c. yeah pretty good even though he's djing it up the entire absolutely anything wrong with it no no the the perez of james bond at the time the mac helm movies with <music> mark. Yes those and in like flint yes. Y'all don't forget the greatness of spy hard uh-huh. Oh yes you know the dan ackroyd talked about. He loves that because he knows wife another paul mccartney everything song yes by like us. Is that a better theme song. Live and let die all right so there are. You're twenty three different songs twenty four the u._s. You're right so while what was was your number. I'm going to go with a lebanon. Wow okay and bob pick. I'm gonna go with four. Oh i'm i'm sorry right and scott's. I'm going to low ball and say okay in junior. Originally originally i was gonna go with thirteen but i'll stick with thirteen and i am going to go with with him. <hes> in honor of all the beautiful bond women that were ten oh so are listed in alphabetical order. Yes it is so we're gonna start with of you to kill a feeling that you say about that. Yes so we do a kill my number one on it was in the eighties field who is a good fit with the mood. The teams playing in the background had great music video. Durant has at least ten solid. It's he's not even including this one scott. I know you agree with me. I'd say across the water wasn't dude as shirt it opens now does law girls on own and you know what i haven't feel you you totally. I never lost as well. I i love this. It's a great song raisman bob yeah. This is a good one. This is probably up five bond yeah and i think as we talked about it fits the era. I remember the video on your tv. I like the whole thing is shot out of a a gun. Scope bribery bulls eye. Just kinda follows everybody around. You are the loan the love assistance assistance okay. It's not it's not my james bond four to one order ones on account. We're off to the races number two all time high from the off with the vehicle <music> <music>. Whoa ooh so you guys. There was a pulse and we <hes> mark wahlberg goes onstage at nor jones concert in since the all time high octopussy theo the only they dumped on so i i liked the all time i the theme song it's i wouldn't say it's my favorite but it's probably top five for me. I i think it's a good song was a hit outside of the movie <hes> but i have a feeling i may be the loan. Yes vote but let's take a look. I what do you think great movie awful song bob bob now now and you know i have a feeling that it's only because of the appearance on head ah senda before in a past life yes curve. We saw oh come on a chance dan it off as much as as respect to release superstars superstars. He's got a very generic voice doesn't stand out enough right but how heads up we talked about that about what makes james fox and needs to reach out and pull. Yes asleep feels very eighties but it's a slow eighties kind of ballot. Which i know doesn't really it's not peppy enough enough for an action james bond movie. I've been understand why you would say no but it's still very disappointed our number three another way to die which kids we hope this reporting doesn't do jack white the the another one of those glare they just took the acts at the time and said hey you guys just go ahead and throw together themes on that we can throw into the front of a movie and sometimes it works in this case. I just don't think it stands out and this is one of the worst bond movies has. It's just so boring you know. We don't have the list in chronological order but i wonder if we in that. I need you to talk about on this side. If we didn't in order of win it was filmed recorded. You think it's a pretty good size of summary. Where music was at the time. I would say probably that yet <hes> i. I looked at the bottom. They are kind of like a time line of west yes now i think that to a certain degree the bond films hell held on to the old style again a little bit longer than other things because i think that they did try to stick with where we came from yeah because i think you at the time by the yeah it was that schmaltzy y- you know looking for it was kind of like crooner music feel to the only one that doesn't really seem wifi is the the moon rigor movie because that feels like a seventies levity star wars face epoch really fussell. They're trying to do but had the goldfinger outfield to didn't really match no that was great and so. I think your point junior is certainly jack. Y alicia keys great the artists but just because you're great artist doesn't necessarily mean it's a good bomb a good bond themes on so i would vote no yeah i would be the same alford yeah joe. I love yeah. That's a no dog all right jack black though they're both good diamonds are forever forever and we will hear this name a couple of times on this list shirley bassey and intro of all of the shirley bassey things on the best one because there is a portion of the song later on were picks up and become kind of this in a way that's why it stands out how goldfinger were temporarily doc sparkling unlike unlike the dime men who are not too young <music> now he has a spile. They're going onto that. They've got the jazzy fields and i bet if we would've. They're probably the same rival team. Did this yeah so. I say yes yes ever that so surprising all right die another the other day madonna so she is material wanting to be in a world yes so while i know you are not a madonna jonathan but really not uh-huh. It's not to do take time to go. This is one one of being technically of the bond songs and i think it would be era of about time with a lot of techno going on in the early nineties very partner yet. I really really good song. It makes me think so if i was allowed to change because oh i'm sorry this is live. So of course i would vote no because madonna can have bruce springsteen for getting a number one album western stars was just released win number one seven or eight countries but not in the u._s. What donna had a new album our spot so jesse will always have a built-in bias if he do springsteen wrong worthy do heaven smith long which is why he hates jennifer garner. He's alive that hates jennifer gardner then app. Let just tweeted tweeted something to kevin smith <hes> that's because he's no longer thumb outlets in herat. Oh yeah so <hes> ben affleck. No longer has to use an alias in order to contact kevin smith so i am a yes for die another day allow. I'll you're against bob. I'll say yeah you're gonna reluctantly. Say the inside your the loan war of the techno the thing you have to outvoted. Yes nets for your eyes only only four you this. This is my second. Favorite <music> to raise song is getting there yes. He has a great voice eighty spiel movie. When i hear the song the only song that the only james bond opening that had the actual artist he in the opening that on a great time shockingly enough there was no other time where the artist appeared in bon jovi credit flippered this so this is all right. We gotta knows wrong. I think i'm going to give me your reasoning. I just didn't find it to be all that exciting of a song to be a pop song and naturally all of us wasn't necessarily a nice tape bonds. I can understand why you would say that because it has a very similar bill to all time high and i know everybody hates that one so i can understand why you would be a no wanted but i have to get this big. All right connects up is another from john barry orchestra. I guess this is the first time on the countdown from russia with love. Eh <music> to you in russia. Aw <music> feels here too yeah martin aww us oh i agree so then the go-to goldeneye from the great yes great leszek advan job in the city the golden golden time but abed's up yes. We'll bring him to his knee so i would guess on this one. I think it's a great song great movie great video game. Lots of good things going forward on the best video game. You know when you talk about that. A lot of people feel that these about that duct with the economy is one of the verdict for multi-player. It is definitely one of the best offer ever majored in in college. I ah for a while. Let's just put it that way all right so anyone no it's it's <music> absolately all right as we continue on the gold standard of songs songs. We have gold finger her. It's the kiss from miss. Da beware on their own this ooh in my number one concern played. You need a uh-huh strong. Yet is such iconic james bonfield yeah you know i think that you you could hear that. Song in the bond file still think that sounds like james bond the first five seconds of yeah definitely feels like that era to that era theme song and you know as we listen to some of these. I think that's not gotcha on every song i mean there are songs where we play go. You know i wouldn't have known what that is unless you told me it does while other when this this feels eales like a james bond. Although i have a feeling anything they'd be the lyrics aren't all that great. Go back and read. Them are not real intelligent. No it's you know as much as thin lizzy loose other songs that as much as they rocked the lyrics are gonna dumb. I wish we had time for you to dramatic reading of luke old gold. That's all he he loves it goal. The boys are back in town. I live in octopussy guy having shock value view of a title they your gold go nuts. What's is yes yes all right. Although from a logistical standpoint they use a crane in dumper in to the gold in the pull her back out almost painter they slave little hotel that so so you think they spray painted her to death and because it's almost like did they do the same thing that they did to dinares gary ins brother no i i remember reading reading the book or something that <hes> the skin could breathe. That's she suffocated but if they had left out small like spots a small little they tested this on mythbusters real big friday great meeting somebody the busters and <hes> one of the test east. I guess you would say they did have to go and say okay. We you gotta wash this off because is respiration was rising heart rate was rising could've just been well the hosts the show so he was nervous but his body paints people do body paint but to cover completely the issue. Where no four are you not all will be covered the body thing people do for possibly is it's built that yeah yeah okay that that's a vastly though we were gonna get yeah learn something new every yes are now. We're gonna go to the midnight train to georgia and do license to kill from the great last night <music> but because she does not bring the pips along why we have to say no right. No pips equals no vote yes. I heard i've given it a now is that it's not very exciting. All right then we come to my favorites from the great paul mccartney and wings live and let die used search news this change in and were you which we uh-huh definitely in my top five definitely now house. I wouldn't go as far as to say. It's the best even though i'm extremely outvoted this yeah but obviously it's a great time. It's a different it is. I think is probably one of the best behind the original theme behind the shirley bassey you know yesterday recognizeable this to me is just put my fist in the air. Do my avatar to this and just go man. James do up cool in this movie. This is fairly soon after wing sorry right. I guess so early seventies seventy three yeah gas oh this is you have all that baggage of being a veto which is look bad. It's ugly wrong but people are wanting to hear a lot of expectation again with that. This is the the more high energy yet wingsung well. Just james bond saw the l. inbound side to be remade. If i'm oh yeah that's true to remake his guns and also roses covers twelve. You would think right but some of us think they only have one yeah. I was gonna say terrible opinion. Yes now there are other ooh interesting better than uncle albert admiral pulse the topic wings. I mean they may have five years got about fifteen but you forgot then begins and roses actually did another double o seven sweet bond girl of mine. Remember there are certain so moving on. Everybody was a yes right back bob. You said this is not only your your favorite theme song. It is your favorite bond. Movie set in the new orleans. Favorite bond movies got my favorite blonde girl enhance the j._c. drives the triple. It's all aaa alexis i think i think it makes my way triple. X. was the agent's name for barbara bach in the spy who loved really sa- vin diesels souls stole that from her exactly i think part of the nostalgia for living this is a story. I've never told before not even on a podcast aw that came out we were in the we were in the rio grande me any minute you want just patting kazaks repair guitarist throws margarita vicious long <music> but there was a any how many pieces were in that are destroyed it was late ni- and my parents and the friends that we went down to visit they were out and left me and the kids the other people with the babysitter and we were all we were under ten seventy seven the ads at night that the baby sitter after the babysitter fell asleep on the couch before the parents got back we were outplayed cul de sac and there there was a drive in movie theater across the highway and you could see one of the screens showing that movie and that was the first time i saw that movie was you didn't even hear you could just see it on living dot yeah. That's a great story. Can you expand upon it at all like. Is there other details in senate that she wanted to go ahead and they can't. We were still running around on the parents. Got back and your aspect but by the friends kids it definitely lots of trump was being thrown long playoff grab ass so at what point that somebody make mud token. Dany stories need the boxing in my yard and this girl that i went to kindergarten with was live about three houses down came over invited to her house and said she had something to show us in the backyard. We followed her. She went through and we stood out by our side yard with the fence close. She pulled her pants down squatted and made mud right in front of me and my friend and pulled her panties back up and we stood there and looked at it and then my friend poked it with a stick and then went back home. Are you sure you didn't make mud pies for the last line in the countdown. Shirley bassey makes her third and final garrett's moon <music> breaker on north in view <music> live it is to diamonds dark room rakers are ever so. I'm gonna casino on this one even though early on it because it's just doesn't feel like the era or the kind of bond movie this way. I think there's going to be much almost like whoever they originally had wind up to do. The song fell through at the last minute brochure traffic. I were very much going for the star wars ground in a this right towards you know what they should have done. You you know that star wars disco version yeah. They should have got meco to do this. They should've taken the james bond theme. Just go to follow right so we all say that yeah. This song became bigger than the movie. Nobody does it better despite of love and money it makes me feel falling <music> but it does good as you ooh u's ipod. I love the song no bit overboard but yeah yeah. I would say yes yes. He is a great phone like you said it stands on the phone even though they are trying to shoehorned take references to the movie yet shamelessly. I think you have to count it. It's a great song you know. Nobody does <music> a thumbs up for me so again. This one was written about warren beatty right north north bay was you're so vain which that version of christmas here's mud vayne the <hes> going next on her majesty's secret service service john berry or served hers mm-hmm. It is also believed arm on louis louis louis armstrong no way he did. We have all the time you didn't so the the the money shot was a wonderful von. I got guns <music> lee and underrated right very underrated but i would not count this theme song either one of them. The theme is is very it's a love song in the middle of okay all right nets sky fall from stanford <music> mm-hmm yeah. I have a feeling this has got to be worse. Yes i'm feeling that there is going to be on this first of all aw i'm not the biggest fan hey among the along really yes exactly right but you're getting a deal bill. So this is a good song. It fits the movie eh and it won an oscar for best song. We've seen the movie yeah so two thousand fifteen. I i agree with you for the first portion but when it hits the money shots. I think it really picks up with you on. Is you wanted it was interesting is when you get to the crash the injured intro credits version and then you get the pop version or the song was released. You know so there's a few versions of song very loud and you may change your vote. The sole in the crash chris is always a about a little under three minutes long shoe something and then you have my typo because says chasing ice with the four my klein suddenly life apply all by in ted. Everybody needs a best friend. That would be adele hit someone and yet last batch in a half your i hate to go against anything seth macfarlane his greatness but i still say that this song should count that have a feeling i'm going to be an unpopular opinion on the no i i have a feeling feeling i may change my mind later this decision but if he went academy award i think it counts yeah bob. Yeah i agree lila komo ocular so three to we have to count it and it's a great movie to let's lay on this one living daylights. He lives so this. One has a very eighty techno. Yeah i love the old uh ah so you would have thought they'd won. Wonder them yeah it was. It was very surprising housing when i found out that they actually saying this is i thought this was somebody else. This felt like a razor or depending on your murphy. Speaking of the one hit our you you may or may not like that song but that is one song that only got big and was a hit because of the video did not have a wrestle like honey. Nobody will ever end yeah. I agree. I think you're right song but i i don't think it made no you can't you can't disconnect the song from the video was signed or anything but put as much as i'm not a fan of the aw you take us on separate from the video. It has a lot ward since oughta checking boxes. It is but just like the video tape. Absolutely we're going to say it's go right so the man with the golden gun lulu john john saint john doc awful to serve with which is another great falls the wild yes here on this vast intro to it. It gets right to the point and the opening credits are over just like that and it's time it's time now it doesn't go. Seventy four came out through live and let die. I would definitely give this one at thumbs up i would i would go to all right next. <hes> <hes> render skander the world is not enough garbage ooh <music>. This is a big thumbs up in the top five blonde field. Even though this really doesn't at the erez at it was made it was it had that retro feel where it feels like it fits in by like a contemporary version of one of the shirley bassey kinda song yeah. I think the same thing where they kind of made it it their own so it's it's their own sil- yet. He fits the mode of a james bond agree. I love urban perfect. Yeah yeah jess thunderball by the great strom your bra. Tom jones the suit so he strikes back back. It has a bond peel and very in a crate rooms on those ended like the movie but i really did like this and fun fact that it'll take two seconds. He blew out his trachea doing the last note to this song so his sacrifice shall not go notice us awesome apparently is he went later to do what was his other. She you never dies by sheryl crowe aw <music> so like show pro good but this is a very generic song another instance where they took forever was time bomb song in times of worth and this made it so i agree i don't. I can't vote for this one any one. I know for the <hes> sheryl crowe. It just doesn't include all right next. I think you may have as your guests lows feeling about. You know my name say my name casino oreo. I guess the talk uh so allow you are very big. Chris cornell l. fair enough. It seemed like they were trying to go for the ready walk. He'll go to dr daniel craig with. I appreciate their effort. It doesn't feel like a fun theme song and it's it's kind of a generic rock song like if it wasn't part of the james bond soundtrack and this is just a track on one of their albums. I don't know that it would stand out listening to this the second time i'm gonna change my booth. I uh-huh no. I really am. I think it does sound a little bit more a little bit more bond light bonds yeah so i won't change aims will be accepted or not but i hear that second time i see that they were trying something different but there was enough amish to the original original so i i. I'm a little more than i thought it would be. It's just not there a year now to jesse year yes why needed full soundgarden. I like cornell but the song by itself now. It's it's like they had soundgarden. Do it like the head lease wings it did when this is the way it doesn't feel like okay paul. We're gonna have you sing with an orchestra feel more. This is this the fragrance luau okay all right and then you only live twice and you only record twice the full you make come true means. It has on the old. I liked it. I always get it yeah splendor. Yes going down the road. I do all the connery and transferred your icon rate. They're talking about that earlier. That and what does that was probably mid sixty.

Bond, James Bond How Many

"How many how many how many how many one two three four five six seven nineteen <music> hey what I get up to hell everyone and welcome to a new episode of how many the only podcast asked on the Internet that counts? I am one of your host Jesse Jackson. We are Bobelis again today. He is off. <hes> said I'm through this. He's on a sour negotiation. He's holding out for my money and and we said screw and we're going to breathe Dave instead day. Welcome to the show. Thank you great to be here again all right and we also have got Scott and you're playing the beaver as the beaver all right so today's topic is brought to us by meath yet and I would say right here the thing expo today. We're going to be talking about a half an acid as many times. We've been talking. James Bond Games are they're holding number. No doubt how many of them are worth a Dan. How many good yes when you say yes? That's James Bond movie or you go. That's the movie I will say Scott. This is one that our body. It's all five of them that actually asked for in the past brasses to do a James Bond movie how how many right so I think we may be easing a lot of our five. Both of them WanNa plane to the crowd. I'M GONNA default. Even a bad chase. Upon movie is fun jamming the whole concept right so you know I I guess there are a few that you go okay. That totally was swinging a mess but overall off so that's how are you. I wanted to rank this well. I'm just going to base. I'm going to ask you guy straight up because I have my own feelings obviously about James Bond movies are some me James. Bond has a feel James. Bond has an atmosphere about it and about him. Sometimes I think the movies these are not James Bond movies just an action flick. It's kind of like the first punisher movie it wasn't the punisher it was Saddam Djing yet but very first one it was it was just the guy that was mad who had gone you know it may have it should have been <hes>. Oh what's the Bronson different because the debt which movies that's all it was. We'll say John Travolta did not play building right you know so I think sometimes it is James Bond movie. Sometimes it's you just gotTa go and it's it's not I also think regal could be. Are you a fan of that. Bond right and we're going to list. I've got the the the bonds I got the year. I think that's is really all we need. I don't think we should have to have a breakdown of what the movies about the movies about then I will tell you a friend I was a bond watcher during the eighties nine Taylor Roger Moore is more my James Bond during that time frame I didn't really see a lot of the connor and connery movies that came out in the sixties and seventies but I will say the last era of bond. That's going on now the Daniel Craig era. I've seen just about every one of those movies. I lean more towards Roger Moore Creek in terms of whether I think they don't give these yeah okay and I am a huge limited steele. You'll fan <hes> so pierce Brosnan though I know a lot of people do not like his take on bond. I'm very partial to Pierce Brosnan his the whole story is supposed to get to be James Bond N._B._C.. Without let him out of his contract he had to do another season of Remington steele of advocate and then Tibia dot and got the role in later when he got it. I was happy to see right. Dave about religion hopefully more vintage with Roger Moore and Sean Connery. I don't no if I've seen a Pierce Brosnan okay. I'm not sure right okay I. I had a friend of mine years ago. He's an expert in my parents. Tom And I was always so impressed. This is my junior high high school ages. I was impressed. He had this little bookcase made they put into his his house next to the fireplace and he had every one of the James Bond Books. You know the the original books that he had put insane. I thought that was really. I kept thinking I'm going to go back and read everyone else. I never just watch the move the books a lot of time are really radically different from the movie. Absolutely I read a couple of them. I remember you know so if the very different like they basically took the titles gets and said let's make a movie yeah and it has nothing to do with the book so Octopussy is a completely different storage that defends Dory yes yes with. That's GonNa make me to another topic at some point but we're GONNA okay models. How so how many James Bond movies overall have all right our baseline is but there could guess on our basement five fifty at thirty five also thirty twenty six okay really twenty six? I would've thought now are you counting like David Dividend. Did One and okay wow. I've got David Niven in here. He didn't want all right so you guessed of the twenty six. How many think are good bond movies go with <hes> seventeen junior? I'm going to go lower. I'm going to say twelve I. I'm really biased first thing but I will go. I will go fifteen. I WanNa go twenty right and you had a guest before racer to the research. I would have would've guessed like twelve or so you know because I I kept thinking I look at it really jaded. I okay you know because I know bond which is kind of your outlook on any the lowest number hate that I hate being negative so you know I really do okay okay so we're ready. Okay from nineteen sixty two Sean Connery makes his appearance with Dr No dangerous knee superbly resourceful James Bond in the expensive screen feminization of the entertained millions of the exotic and tantalizing Dr. No absolutely no course stand yeah I mean Oh my God. Yes yeah I mean this was is the first I mean it set the temple of the gadgets. The Martini shaken stirred just drink amount teeny shaken not stud. My name is Bon James Bond so yeah I admire. Are you a luck. Mr Bond James Okay say some of these are going to be instant. Okay all right nineteen sixty three when they use a pump out by God from Russia with Love Sean Connery again makes his appearance there as James Even on notorious some meeting Dr no secret agent is back and the world has two children and he pitches murderous. Tom's against the ion cutting and it's built at women took something to me the most beautiful girls I've seen I think my Masato big right size for me. That is don't remember this one being as like Connie I certainly once again I lean toward if it sean connery is James Bond. It's yes but I if someone I'm I'm GonNa say they had a little software slump and know anyone else said India. I'm not I'm not as familiar with this <hes>. What do you say from Russia with love I actually I just watched this the other day it near and I was surprisingly or okay? It didn't have a didn't have the flair layer that I was used to from it. At this point I would say they could've skipped from Russia with love. I think what they did was they shot their wadden Dr no yeah and they said they came back and went. Oh my goodness you gotta take another. One of the things ooh was over not based on a book the based on books titles on the street up you know big through Dr No out there and it had everything and like I said I want to stress if someone's going no hey. It's a fund Sunday afternoon. James Bond movies on it. Tom Hanks us to say he says at our house if an Elvis or James Bond movies on T._v.. You Watch it when he was a kid. Sochi record we saying for much. I'm saying no Laura Okay Dave. I'm the low so I think I'm giving them a break. It's kind of like the rock albums everybody's first album. I mean all your life run after six months to make there's a huge difference but I'm just the subject matter in the locations okay nine hundred sixty four again one year later Sean connery comes out with gold fitting gets and you've got iconic. The had you know at Fort Knox at the tonight spit <hes> part of my childhood we were state. My Dad was stationed in Fort noughts and every time relatives came to visit you had to go look at the goal of all so yes that expect me to talk expect to die expecting to talk. I expect you to buy and I think that that that's kind of what they said. Okay I think this is where we need to go with James. Bond you know from Russia would love that kind of had the slump of skit out quick but then I think they've got old figuring they went yeah just based off of your little imitation of the song that may be another good how many how many good James on theme song like Yeah for later making on that so I'll say yes the Goldfinger yes. I said yesterday Goldfinger no question okay thunderball. James Bond is in operation and what an operator he is in Ian Fleming's fundable. Yes I remember this one being really strong man I do not recall had the greatness of the underwater fight scene Yes with a I guess you had the good guys in the bad guys on the little underwater craft that poll on Roy and they come together and it's like you'd see the spheres and yeah I mean there's this huge fight scene the cutting of the of the oxygen thank you know a court is the hope that that's what that was the huge thing of thunderball you say serious. I'll say the next one we have a curveball thrown to us because David Niven Place James Bond in nineteen sixty seven for the little send-up Casino Royale Keno Royale L. is indestructible wild indescribably bunny. Oh you're like that sort of thing. Join the Casino Royale Fun Movement now. I've I've seen the remake the Daniel Craig but I have not seen nothing to do with with the David Niven. It was kind of play laugh so I don't think it isn't real change. Remember who the villain was in that Woody Allen there we go. Oh Woody Allen News. James Bond doctor says I can't have to my body at any time. What if I was pregnant Jimmy Bon bons son who's pissed because he doesn't get any credit? That's so that's kind of where you get the Scott at yeah what's his Scott Green. <hes> Jeff Scott Evil Evil. Ah The the bad guy sleep all right guard begin the unnecessarily slow moving dipping mechanism onto onto needed to watch them. They could get away. No no no. I'm going to leave them alone and not actually witnessed them dying. I'm just GONNA assume a doll went to plan what I have a gun in my room you give me five seconds. I'll get it. I'll come back back down here boom. I'll blow their brains out skirt. You just don't get it. He's those guys as bonds kid who's pissed because he doesn't get so he's actually the bad guy. He's he's like the bad guy movie okay okay. He's pulling all strings okay so because scenario now this is I I would say no because Jane Hybrid Movie. It was a year it was a spy. Send up again right. It's even listed online as a parody right. We're so we put Leslie Nielsen in that role to raise name. <music> are we all know gets okay all right nineteen sixty seven. We're back to Sean Connor with you only live twice these big life the facing debts and you only live twice twice is the only way to live well. At least he died on the jump yeah. That's the one where they his death breath. Yeah I'm vote yes on that one. I I'm not familiar with this one <hes> just in reading the synopsis on it a little silly ninjas and waiting on an island right <hes>. I'll have to defer okay even even though Donald pleasants was in it who I love. I'm going to have to Director James. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Ernst Starkville. Go to told me what assassinated in Hong come years. This is my second life. You only live twice Mr Bond. You say no. I'm saying okay longer Lewis all right all right nineteen sixty nine a real curveball from the audience with George Lazenby playing James Bond on Her Majesty's Secret Service George listen the different bone from the same statement. Diana Rick has the COMTE assert the different bond woman. This one's got class and I remember the iconic ski jump you know the images were getting buried. His wife dies. I know George Lazenby gets short shift as because he was only in the one I remember that being a pretty good movie giving it was a it was a damn good James Bond movie yeah <hes> it helps you all of the James Bond movie I mean it had songs that had the gadgets and have the wit it had the hot women <hes> but you had had the Hazel Evil characters the beautiful places but it was George Lazenby right and I mean I know people who were huge fans and obscene them up with Saint George Lazenby. What drove me? What are you talking about? James Bond Georgia's the secret I in that one was telly Savalas in the the skiing seems shotguns on skis. Oh they were it was not in. It's really for the village all off the precipice precipice. That's the there's no way that's word but it. It just wasn't there for me. You know I've Oh guess but I'm I'm okay. Okay with. Diana was the she gets killed very sorry guys. She gets very very movie that he gets married to her so it's only about fifty years old. I'm actually a big Fan of this movie. I've been to the location of relayed skiing seeing with the rotating restaurant and all that's in Switzerland. It's called the slither horn now for the Schlitterbahn in which I often do and I intentionally would would say that most of the time when I was there but you take ski ski lift up to their and is phenomenal phenomenal to yeses yeses Jay. I'll say yes okay. It sounds like everybody's we'll give it then we have return of Sean Connery in nineteen seventy one for diamonds diamonds are for ever he's back. The county runs rings around his enemies in dominance off forever. I know that was a big deal coming back. <hes> I don't remember much about the movie Jill Saint Joan Okay it was Jill St John Lott would but <hes> Yeah I love this one because because James Bond because of Jill saying I thought she added a huge part of the movie she was. She wasn't just there for boobs she was. She carried it staff. Well you let me find you ain't got gas yet. Okay okay shoveled couples gallons in backing up leading on that tutor and you're going to get a shot in the mouth curly you had you chance and your fluid and I give diamonds are forever thumbs up okay okay okay cool and then we get to some of you guys wheelhouse nineteen seventy-three Roger Moore live and let Roger Moore is James Bond 007 Ian Fleming's live and let die in my name's Bob names for tombstones baby yes and the iconic theme song such grand the discussion of the greatest <hes> bond theme song. I would make the argument used this change in <music> live <music>. I would say it's top three Yeah Academy Award for <hes> I absolutely I think what's again. They knew do they were getting a new bond. Kind of through everything well there are certainly nothing wrong with <hes> Roger Moore had been the saint and now this was actually older than then. I think Sean Connery gets at the time which is kind of weird you know and think about it. The only thing about Roger Moore I always kind of questions he he had the I think he had the way carry bond and he had the saint he'd Brock at whole persona from the saint to James Bond but he didn't have the bill. Yeah Roger Moore was a skinny dude. You know <hes> and he just didn't have that Tim but I still loved it. Yeah I guess he'll love during more towards humor right on more a little bit more funds in their go more. You're you're not my instructor. Bleaker indisposed listen it. Let's just wing. Show in this Bell Gene Seymour was the longer right but yeah I habits is yeah okay. Nineteen seventy four Roger Moore again the man with the Golden Gun Rancho Mall Back in action in the exotic east as James Bond 007 on the collision course with the most dangerous man alive aligned with the Golden Gun loved it for me. I don't know I don't <hes> but I'm I'm okay. Capote was the story this is. This is one where there is a a hitman is an assassin and <hes> he has basically been hired to kill James Bond Christopher Lee yes he and he's like the greatest Christopher Lee out that's that's yeah and he shoots with a Golden Gun Great Craig Villain in James Bond trying to track down because he receives a bullet with his name on it and then he has to go to the guys island seems to bond like every great artist. I I want to create an indisputable masterpiece once in my lifetime the death of double o seven Mono Amano face to face won't be mine mean stuffed on display over your rocky mantelpiece. That's an amusing idea that I was thinking in terms of history a deal between titans my golden gun against your Walser P P K each each of us with a fifty fifty shots that was the one of the the iconic I think car flip and he has the sheriff redneck share. That's gotten <unk> driving down the value and it gets to just one where he needs to get the side of the Vice Lee hits this ramp flips the car over land aside and keeps taste and the seriously you know screaming if you're not thinking I shore ample knievel and it has every relationship the leash as bill issues relatives. Thank you yeah he's in there as the side kick the bad GAM Britt Ekland is for all right wasn't doing something with harnessing the sun to make energy crisis right yeah yeah there there was one of the things to it was going on nine hundred seventy seven Roger Moore again with the spy who vote him giving out. I'm going to say the Golden Gun. I thought we said Okay seventy-seven the spy who looked me. It's the biggest it's the best Utah and the off. This was right about the movies farber. Yes is email. The mission is over commander in my Country Major. The condemn matters usually a lot of final request grounded. That's out of these web things James. What does superior say Exxon? What do you think you're doing keeping the British end up Sir Richard Keel as jaws? That's the one with him the more than one he's been he he was in a couple of the new moon rake and caroline Monro- the heroine Monrovia relation. It's no name U.. N. Jaws is the the actor that was in happy Gilmore the one that was yeah. That's too as far shooter. You can count good for you. You can count on me waiting for you in the parking lot. So what do you think spy you love me he does he yeah. I'll go with that sure okay then we came back. We're going to try to get into the space race in nineteen seventy nine with moon raker from us to the most spectacular adventure in Space Keun Rakaat Ulta this people are probably going to want to easily dismiss this one but boy I just I went to the theater and saw this multiple times as a kid using the space shuttle which was at that the time in our jaws again ritu layovers in it. Is this the one where the guys up on the capsule and the ship comes up and links Daniels this you hear that you hear the the astronauts screaming and yelling over the radio radio also just shuts down yeah and it's like the big ship space just out of the more humor suspects of this so the female lead her character name Doctor Holly Good. Oh Yes to spell of yes it had bits this definitely had bits because it was also implied love making seeing when they went off in zero gravity. God Watch I'm doing. I think he's attempting reintroducing thumbs up. Oh good I thought that would get eliminated but I liked it. Okay again with Roger Moore and nineteen eighty-one. You're in your high school. Graduation for your is only is it's Roger Moore S._D._N.. Fleming's James Bond 007 below seven raping song as does the Sheena Easton God. <music> limited memory on this. I think that's that happens is that you pay a second. I know I've seen it but yeah. I don't really remember the storyline for it so it says the the female on this one Carol Boquete not familiar Lynn Holly Johnson also as B._B..

I'm I'm berryman on this one much of dull rings good with me Yeah See I was all bitter because I wanted Pierce Brosnan yeah so I'm worried and Timothy has been great and other stuff <hes> but I would I would vote the couple he did is licensed to kill was better than living out Yeah I. I was can't remember much about living daylights. I think that this was the time when <hes> the James Bond Movies Kinda started. They took a turn not just with the character and and became more of James Bond's too tough guy you know and so I I wasn't living daylights fan. We'll say okay. I'm licensed to kill Timothy Dalton one more time in nineteen eighty nine better but better but still for me. It didn't and didn't works right bottom. I I'm not going to say Oh yeah yeah.

Okay now we come into Jesse's world nineteen ninety-five Pierce Brosnan Goldeneye. You can still depend on one man. I wouldn't defined tonight three find who took it to stop it. James Bond James Bond Yeah. Yes and I would say that this one for me. It was a return to what the Sean Connery years for like you know it was it was smart sexy. It was gadgets. The action was there a W- it was there it wasn't so funny like it was with Roger Moore but it's still had a little bit of that but very Sean Beam <hes> star Alec back from the dead no longer just an anonymous start on the memorial bulletin. I six James Liberty Mark and pissy comeback back. Why that is question particularly from you? Did you ever ask why we toppled. All those dictators undermined all those regimes let me to come home. Well done good job but sorry boy everything risked your life enforced changed and Anti Janssen Jean Grey the rallies also great rounders yeah and also really did starts playing him which was a really nice that was a big deal was a woman woman. She was really good in that yes it if you were to ask gate a video game connoisseur they would say golden is one of the greatest intendo sixty four is of all time. I was Kinda mentioned. I remember the video game. I didn't play it but yeah it was it was it was one of the original first person shooters and it was really well they gave that a lot of people still play to this day. I never <music> ives every game guy so Goldeneye 007 the most successful licensed game ever despite coming out two years after its film counterpart Goldeneye instantly became a classic and raise best game yet the biggest reason for its success was multiplayer which amazingly was added as an afterthought yet it became a pioneer for console multiplayer or more specifically console first person shooters. This was the game that was was at every six. People were part okay so that was a thumbs up on the goal in mind nine hundred ninety seven Pierce Brosnan again with tomorrow never dies the world go on Von Remove Esteban's hot should just be enough time for him to watch it. Stop beating. I would've thought watching T._V.. Shows Torture Enough Great Teri Hatcher <hes> that's enough Teri Hatcher of just yup the real tax yes and by the way they're real on their spectacular spectacular and they really were. That's although tingling cash maybe because of her stripper dance limit graciously yes it. She was really good in this one night and then dive and just perfect okay tomorrow. Never dies is a thumbs up in nineteen ninety nine. The world is not enough on bond. You can't you just say hello like a normal person. Over time is up. The world is not enough great song. That's garbage right. That's about right at this point. Denise Richards Bond Girl. She plays the out of the scientists in looks like she's video game character as nuclear physicists. That looks like <hes> maybe a little Robert Carlyle is good. You know <hes> Mister Gold from that. I would say much silent Pierce Brosnan if we're GONNA cut one out there with you. If we're going to say this one doesn't have it. This is the next one definitely does it Diet and other day two thousand two pierce for Awesome Halle Berry very yeah my friends coming Jinx James Bond. There's a mouthful. Who sent you your Mama down? This was the anniversary right on twentieth film Yes yeah and so forty me to actually one of the well on the official right well. David Niven had that one between one and and then Sean connery was part of that either that's right never gets this was the twentieth official bond film and and I remember watching it enjoying I watched it a second time with the commentary <hes> and they talked about all the Easter eggs that nichols gets really worth watching like <hes> halley berries suit phase content ursuline anders. They're all kinds of try and it was fascinating to see all the cameo in Easter eggs. They threw in there that this thing I knew so holly Berry this was also one of the earliest roles of Rosamund Pike who later on to started her own movies but she was kind of a bit player in this one two and John cleese's Q. Weapon please. The one pain unbreakable glass one standard-issue ring finger twists ultra high frequency single digit Sonic Agitate Unit Josh you're still looking ever than you are fellow movies. Now you watch to she'll be your twenty times lies W. Chew Establish Record. I actually returning this one right. Yes I thought was genius. He thought he loves us. Let the genius agreed casting. Yeah okay then we go to two thousand six another bond change and we'd go to annual your file shows no kills Bong but to become a double oh it takes to how did he die. Contact no well. The second is yes Sibley blowing up this will see how often versi at the time he wasn't dark-haired. You know this was a totally league different it was it was more action less espionage family through I remember when I saw that I went wow. They took it to a different level. It was John Wig before John Wig the action the special effects of the stunts I this may be my favorite on movie of all time not only because of all the action the great acting but obviously some a big poker guy about forty five minutes just dedicated to Texas holdem in this move which is awesome. Yes so I love this. She might enjoy saying than the originally originally out that the whole the thing is a big poker game and you know there's a guy cheating and you know and in bond figures out what's going on and then he starts cheating and this this huge thing so you might enjoy that yeah this was I think it's important with all these franchises you refresh and you come up with a fresh. Every generation should have their own bond or whatever so yeah I this was amazing is oh definitely in addition to integrating. I thought being a really good bond. Even green was the the bond girl and this one really good. I really like her and the bad guy this one man's Mickelson who went on to play Hannibal and the annual T._v.. Show he was doctor strange dangerous guy he was really good in this to you know all these Lebanon torches if the simplest thing to cost more pain than enjoying long and of course not only the immediate but the knowledge that if you Gilson that lift to identify you the only question what makes will yield yeah so thumbs up for me. Dave absolutely Jesse yeah absolutely Caserta. You're not really man I it's it's. I don't like the box to me. It's not James Bond anymore. It's just it's an action guy and I love Jeffrey breaked as Felix Lester Lester <hes> now that's kind of a recurring character so yeah I know I. I'm big fan of this. I agree with you but I think also as Jesse said it's kind of a refresh. Oh I totally agree it. It's not comparable to what we knew. In the sixties and seventies it is it is a refreshing but I don't think it's in a negative direction up to the time I think they wanted a fresh well. They had to yeah because it would have and the gadgets and everything if that's your father's bond yeah I tried to steer away from the nice suit yeah kind of bond and more become a gritty and they really played that up to one of the scenes I think Casino Royale our bond goes to the Bharati ask for Martini and he goes shaking or stirred and he's down the drain of their way of breaking away. Get losing on very it comes to look at it as it's like okay we're making movie but also were making a franchise. We're got to to make video game. We're going to have to make the remake to that video game and all of that I think it was what was clearly in in your mind and there is agree. It is just the but I actually figures yeah yeah I just I remember loving the freshness of it and I think you have a valid point. It may not be the James Bond. We grew up with but right. I think it's it's really cool yeah and if you think about it for this generation Dana Craig will be there James Right yes because he's already getting up there where he's not GonNa do very the drawback like when you look at a star Trek next generation compared to star trek original series even now the Star Trek discovery each of them of their own kind of you have to make that fresh for an audience and you can either go with it or you Dell so I say yes okay two thousand eight quantum of Fox. That's what I could trust you. He said he went motivated by revenge. I'm motivated by my beauty blinded by inconsolable rage that you don't care who you heard when you can't tell your friends from your enemies it's time to go. You don't have to worry uh-huh yes so on this one I would say no because I thought this movie was extremely boring. In fact I tried to watch it several times and I just couldn't make it through. I fall asleep. I would just lose interest. It was a very boring I agree. It didn't have the supporting cast that even made you say well at least yeah I think they made a mistake by killing off even green in Qassim spoiler alert and gets really really good in a row. I can't remember anything about the movie that that I can't okay thousand twelve Daniel Craig Against Sky Fall Country England <music> shot agent provocateur employment stifled now this one I would say yes I like skype but it has another iconic theme song that that was the <hes> Adele one uh-huh and the whole story about being you know him and Judi dench got more to do which was nice to see. I in this one of Frendo is the bad guy to he's a very good villain. Is that real kind of disturbing scene where he takes his teeth out in his face. Kinda troops down our DEM. Yes no boarding you. Hydrogen slant height the world use a really good villainous okay all right and then the the last two thousand fifteen so from one Daniel Craig again inspector this organization. You know what it's cold. It's nameless. Specter ACTA links all me welcome James. You came across me so many tons yet he never saw tell me what took you so long. It West Me James Author of all Japan. Ah Yes I give this one of them's up to this one where they're like in Mexico at the beginning in that giant chase scene <hes> this one Christopher Christoph Waltz is the bad guy yeah <hes> i. I really like this one two yeah and <hes> you know raw fines is now in a I pick this one. I have a <hes> aside story. I <hes> where junior still works. I used to work real page. We bought a company and they're out of Canada and <hes> they are specter and I was talking in a meeting once with Steve Wynn who's our C._E._o.. And I kinda slurred and I said spectrum and he goes no no no. It's Specter Specter is the James Bond Villain and it's like okay. Thank you for correctly Steve and points for putting in such a Geeky or so yeah. I think this was good. I would give this one of those. Hey yes absolutely okay. I got her she did I was watching James Bond's the other day. I know it's all supposed to be fantasy but I'm thinking could you today be a super villain and able to employ all those little henchmen meant yes and not have one of them. Turn on you. Turn on the go. Doctor knows this island. I'll give you you know like these guys all of their families. At night he sucked sucked and you know the submarine came in there was up some dude on it was really no health insurance premiums kind of what's interesting <hes> for those who watch better call Saul they this last season they covered a little bit of that in Building Frings Laboratory. Oh yes and they kinda covered that a little bit about how they did that and kept it secret so yeah so that's the last one right. That's the last one all right coming up in twenty twenty s Bahn twenty-five you see the proposed villainous Rami Malik Mister Robot while you're counting <hes>. Would you guys be okay with like Idris Elba to being being lifespan ninety two. I think he's a really good actor and I think we'd be nice. I mean I'm not saying and he kinda does that already in that Luther T._v. Gal right where he's kind of like the spy action hero being <hes> yeah I I wouldn't have a problem I I like them in the wire like them in the movies. He's GonNa I think so to that would be interesting all right so this reminds of our numbers all right so <hes> John Davidson seventeen junior twelve. I said Fifteen Scott said before he had done research he would have said eighteen. Yes yes gene and I really really wait on eighteen seventy yeah because we like I said there I think you could make a couple arguments that you know then all twenty six something numbering right so in going through the list of the people that play on who did you feel was the best bond connery of in last me more Dalton Brosnan Craig. I'm I'm a huge sean connery and I like Pierce across them because I thought he brought that some Comrie feel back to it <hes> but you know just maybe a case of looking at the world from back when I was a kid or it's just looking at the guy that created the character. Get you know so I goes Sean Connery Pierce Brosnan Ganal Craig and then kind of Roger Moore Yeah you know I had Roger Moore in Boston right there. I liked Roger Moore but like I say there was those things about Roger. This kind of sometimes I was just didn't quite add it depends on the writing. Everything got so good just based on the ones I've seen I actually think Daniel Craig is the best bond and then it would go roger more than I've only seen a handful of the connery's and the ones maybe one of those three movies I light but I would go craig at this point. This is one of those rankings that it's really hard to argue anyone. I mean I can throw it an opinion but I couldn't disagree with another a lot of times. You hear somebody else say something very run at love him. I mean I I agree with everybody's opinion because there's like you said it's what was your wheelhouse. What did you how how old are you so? I'm leaning towards the vintage. Connery probably ranked Roger Moore higher than most people. The Daniel Craig's way up there to get you know one of the things that I pulled from watching these movies like last week they were this panel channels watch have him on but but I was just thinking man so much metoo going on this the Daniel Craig will steer away from a lot of the flirtatious ages again they worried about that with the bras narrow because this was during you know <hes> safe sex and the AIDS revolution all this stuff so yeah. Oh time is bond force himself on a woman yeah you know and of course she's fighting biting. Oh it's like all if you WANNA give feedback you can reach me on twitter at Jesse Jackson D._F._W..

Coming home to our wholeness. Listen and follow. Holy human with me. Leeann rhymes on the iheartradio app apple. Podcast or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to textile production from iheartradio. He there and welcome to tech stuff. I'm your host. Jonathan strickland. I'm an executive producer with iheartradio and a love all things tack and it is friday which means it's time for another classic episode of tech stuff this episode originally published on january sixth two thousand fourteen as the first part of a two part episode. So we'll have part two next week but this is called text stuff bonds with spy tech part one knows a lot of fun looking back at the different types of gear that has been featured both in spy films and has actually played a part in espionage and Various secret agencies. It is a fascinating subject to one that is filled with a lot of innovation A lot of failed innovation as well the spy museum in washington. Dc is absolutely fascinating to walk through. If you have time. i recommend it once. Things are safe to go out and about at museums again and let us listen to this classic episode. This is behind the curtain guys. We had to go in and start deleting stuff because it was so much like we can't do a five part episode about james bond. Yeah yeah. I mean over the course okay. So this is a phenomenon a global phenomenon that was based on a single nineteen fifty-three novel casino royale written by ian fleming. Who better known as of course the creator of chitty chitty bang bang. Clearly he wrote all of the all of the james bond novels that you know he originally created from this jamaica state that he had called golden goldeneye and it all branched out from there into the beautiful goofy thing that we have today and and they're you know some errors of james bond that were significantly more goofy than others. I think the more years the roger more years in particular guy goofy and silly and because there is a lot to cover and some of it we want to relate to actual real world technology and kind of explain which ones are realistic. And which ones aren't because there's so much we are going to do a two parter because it's just it otherwise we would have just pick and choose and it would be really unsatisfying at least for us. Yes yes so. But so yeah. Bond himself gets most of his gear from my sex and from specifically their q standing for quartermaster branch. Yes and So you often will find that the various people that bond ends up interacting with am i six go by a specific letter. Q being two big ones and and q. Of course is the the person in charge of giving out all of the weird gadgets and usually at some point in the rollout gives a little a little bond a little kind of a slap on the wrist saying. Could you please stop blowing up the stuff i give you because all of these wonderful things. I mean. we didn't list to the number of things that we're going to talk about that. He is blown up. But i mean it's safe to say that most of them. Yeah yeah he's not only not only as blown up most of his gadgets. This point he's blown up most of europe. But that's that's accurate. I did want to note. That fleming himself was in the naval intelligence for the british royal naval reserve in world war. Two and it's been suggested that that because Fleming was doing a little bit of field work. You know breaking in an entering to photograph sensitive documents that sort of thing that that the character of james bond was highly romanticized version of himself. Yeah as it turns out the stuff that spies really do and the stuff. That james bond does are not necessarily aligned. I mean i don't know that there are many spies who actually have these incredibly flashy lives that bring a lot of attention to themselves. Like i can't imagine a spy walking into a casino and winning game after game after game drawing attention to him or herself. Because it seems like it's antithetical productivity. Yeah to being a spy but at any rate but some of the tech that james bond uses is actually very real world. Corley sure so. Let's start off with one of the iconic pieces of technology. That james bond depends upon in practically every movie that's different from the novel series and the movie series but in the movies. He has a sidearm. The the vaulter or walter. Pk which is the one he carries. In most of the movies there is a point where he switches from the pk to the p ninety nine that would be in the movie tomorrow never dies and from there all the way through to casino royale. That's what he's using. But then it goes back to the p k. Now stands for police pistol detective model and you might think. Well where does the k. Come from it comes from the german word. Which is oh. Let's try this police. The police pistol criminal model. Oh boy i know. I butchered that one. Probably doing it better than i would. And and in german it is in fact pronounce vaulter. Yes yes yes. But in british and american where we say walter. It is spelled w. a. l. t. h. e. r. But the germans do not have a thaw sound. It's a it's a hard t or a d sometimes depending on what germany but at any rate so this is a very small gun which makes sense. It has to be concealable right. So it's a small gun. It's semi automatic. It's double action. It's pretty reliable. Yeah it's a often used in various law enforcement agencies throughout all of europe both the the Pdk and the p. ninety nine were and so it's one of those that you find all over the place in europe so made sets and in fact In the novels. I think he has a beretta. Originally in the first few novels he was carrying a beretta until a fan named joffrey are geoffrey boothroyd. I've clearly been watching. too much. Game of thrones wrote in recommended more appropriate weapons in nineteen fifty-six and fleming went in and made the switch and then furthermore honor jeffrey by naming q. After the character of cue up through Through the point when the original actor passed away. I was named them major. Both also you know in in the casino royal movie casino. Royale movie with Daniel craig the jumping way ahead but in that film. Apparently he is convinced to hand over his beretta to trade. Up to the vaulter cute. I don't remember that. Because i've more or less blocked that foam from my mind. I have not seen it. I know i haven't seen any of the daniel criminals men enjoy the at least i. I really liked the last one But we can talk about that later on and on but before we get into our big list because it is very big I did want to mention that. There is a a term for the kind of plot device. That most of these james bond gadgets are because they are not just devices they are plot devices bright and and it's called a check of gun after russian author anton chekhov and his observation that which which relates to stage play more so than movie play. But anyway don't put a rifle on the wall unless it's going to go off right if you go into. If you're going to put something in a conspicuous spot that the audience sees you cannot then denied the audience. The payoff of of using that right. You can't you can't not use it. In fact there are a lot of films that follow the same sort of approach the first one that jumps to my mind shaun of the dead. They look at the manchester on the wall. And you know that at some point they're going to have to shoot that gun. Yeah all right. So i love. That was in slither by the way. Nate right yes. That is a good point. Yes you can also play with this by by reversing. Every rule is made to be broken. Yes so let's dive and now we're gonna go chronologically as far as the film's go. Which means we're going to jump around a couple of different bonds. But i'll explain a little bit of that when we hit there so the first james bond film to come out was in nineteen sixty two and it was dr no and that was when The they had our first days. While i was sean connery as bond anelle. Dr no is one of the movies where you see james bond doing all of his spice stuff. But they're not really all these crazy gadgets. That a lot of us associated with bond based upon later films Yeah yeah there was like one self destructor bag in that movie. I think and that was really the only standout tech that happened in that case the the bag. The purpose of the bag was so that it would destroy any case notes that were inside the bag so that if bond had been captured those notes could be destroyed. And there'd be no evidence. Of what am i did did not know so. It was purely defensive in that sense. It wasn't a weapon to destroy documents but then we move onto nineteen sixty three to from russia with love and boy. We got a a very early request from a co worker about a particular gadget. That shows up in this movie so earnest robert over on stuff to blow your mind rotas and on both twitter and tumbler. Where we had. We had posted a query on twitter. Tumbler facebook To ask ask people write in and tell us their favorite bond gadget and why and robert responded in not one but two places. Yes he said. You've got to talk about the brief case in from russia with love which is interesting because this is what a lot of people think of as the first james bond gadget now first of all inside this briefcase james bond carried a rifle that had an infrared scope in it. So that's pretty gadgetry all by itself but then the briefcase itself has so many hidden compartments and cool things that you immediately want one so it has side from the part that i'm pretty sure that weight limitations would start to be an issue but it probably be a little weighty. It'd probably a little heavy okay. So you've got a rifle in it. So that's that's wait right. The also has at least one if not two knives in it right a- tubes for ammunition right so. These brass tubes that carry bullets in them. they're not they. Don't shoot bullets a way to carry a munition inside a place without someone seeing that. You're carrying lots of ammunition right. Some some belts of gold coin. Fifty gold sovereigns is exactly. How many were in that briefcase fifty. That's a lot of gold coin. Each gold coin was technically worth a pound sterling but everyone used it as billion so then you've got the poisonous gas that's also inside the briefcase had that trick lid and didn't know the trick to opening it would go off gas you. Yeah so yeah. This is a this is a pretty cool thing and in one of those actually saw video online of fan. Who created a replica of this briefcase using plastic stuff for all the weapons. So like you know. They'll think bullets in plastic but it was. it was incredibly faithful to the original design. That was really amazing. I'll see if i can find that video in lincoln when we put this live see they also had a both a radio phone in the car and for bond how right both of which were technologies that existed at the time. But we're really only used for like very high paying doctors. State officials kind of steph pagers. That only been around for a little while. Maybe maybe about five years when when that came out so it was still a very new thing to most people. They also used a bug detector. Now this was not the only time that a bug detector is shown in the james bond film. But we're not gonna cover all of them just to say that this is very much spy tech this you know when you can put something that's designed to get surveillance from a specific area whether it's a microphone or a camera. Whatever bug detectors are real thing. They detect different stuff. Like you might have enough detector looking for electromagnetic fields. You might have a broadband radio scanner to pick up any radio six. Yeah so this is totally something. That happens in spy business. A- all over the place is furthermore had been happening for for. I'd say since at least world war two and in fact you will you'll hear in fact. I'm sure we've talked about it. Perhaps it was in a. I think it was our skunkworks episode where we talked about. How lucky barton would have these meetings with the government and they would actually sweep the room for bugs in a hotel. It'd be hotel that no one knew what the location was going to be until it happened. So this is stuff that happens today. All the time Then they had a special camera that hid a- tape recorder inside of it. So that bond could Could clemson clandestinely record conversations. It's funny because now our phones do this. They have both the you can get an app that lets you record stuff. You can take pictures so a lot of the technology back then was. Let's combine these two crazy things to make another even more crazy thing in and we have it. Yeah a lot of sci-fi style minute miniaturization was going on in these films to You know at the time. The idea of a tape recorder that could fit into a camera was pretty wild especially to consumers. For whom eight tracks were kind of the new big thing. Yeah yeah yeah. If you're looking at the regular reel to reel tape recorders which were like the size of like a small television set. I mean these are. These were big pieces of equipment. So to have a miniaturized version of. That was pretty incredible. Yeah as for weapons special gadget weapons. Some of the bad guys had some cool inside. There was one had a a a shoe that had a dagger hidden inside of it. They'll shoot out dagger. Yeah i guess not shootout retractable like a switchblade for your foot seem like just a terrible idea. If you're as close as i am. I would injure myself a pet so quickly and easily. Lauren accidentally brutally stabbed herself forty seven times while walking up the stairs happen. Then one of the bad guys had a gun wrote watch a watch the head of wire wrapped around the watch face so they could pull it out like the it was just. It was just me long enough. So that you could strangle the heck allah somebody And the bad guy tries to do that on bond but spoiler alert. It doesn't work okay. I can't believe he just told us that. I know sorry. i'm sorry. I'm sorry but nothing about the garage was particularly like unusual. I do think that if you were going to try and hide a wire on yourself. You probably could find better place than on your watch. You could easily so it into a garments that you can easily you know. Whip it out of there or whatever they just had a little secret pocket or something but hey it's not as cinematic. So maybe that's the whole reason. Yeah and actually the shoe dagger thing The the shoes. That michael jackson designed to do that. That deep lean billion smooth smooth chrome with criminal right had sort of a similar mechanism of i mean not for i. It didn't shoot a dagger into the stage to hold him up. It did shoot out a little you could you could trigger a little hitch. That would that would pop down from the. He'll so hook into the standards. Yeah oh cool. so so. He wasn't doing that on his own. No wonder broke my nose four times trying to do that move. Yeah he was a professional and everything. If only i had known then so moving on and nine hundred sixty four. We get one of the most famous james bond films. That's why the this. This is the one i always think of. When i think of james bond goldfinger sean connery is still with us. He's still the bond. In fact connery some jumping around. But we'll get into that a little bit later but yeah this is. This is the of course the famous scene in this one with the big industrial laser. That slowly going to bisect. James bond and goldfinger says a jason's d. Expect me to talk to you. Know mr bombed. I expect you to die. It's my favorite line all of cinema way of their line. Leave the gun. Take the cannoli. That's another big one but there are you know. That's obviously not james bond movie so do we have industrial lasers that will bisect super spy industrial lasers that could by exact a super spy. I don't know that any have been put to that specific use there may be some crazy villain out. There who has in fact used it on a person but we certainly have lasers that are powerful enough to do physical harm to a person at the time. I don't know that anyone to create a laser quite that powerful But they do exist today. It's but we use them for things like cutting steel right like using for for cutting cutting industrial uses. I mean it's an industrial laser. Well if it could cut steel. I'm i'm pretty sure. Could cut james bond james bond. Guys abs- steel. He is dude.

Contact world is now available on the iheartradio app or wherever you listen to podcasts. That's c. o. N. t. a. k. T. world goldfinger was the premiere of one of these iconic james bond items. Oh yes are you talking about as vehicle. Yes his vehicle said an aston. Martin yes more d db five to be specific there. There are other aston martin's that appear in the james bond franchise and they're also other types of cars. But i mean some of them are most of them are ones that james bond you know gets borrows. Let's say for a short while. The s martin is always associated as being james bond's car like it's something that we build by q. And he drives it. I believe that they entered into some kind of like marketing. Agreement with the company in the sixties. Right around this film. Say and how well martin is a luxury car company out of england. They're gorgeous you. They are gorgeous. Cars and the the company itself for a brief while was a subsidiary of ford motor company. But that was that was much later in the nineties For for a few years and then it was bought back that some some Financiers purchase most of the ownership of the company back from ford. Which now i think owns a tiny share in comparison to what it used to have But with all of the switching around Has it ever had an injector seat. Yes yes the aston martin very well known lots and lots of gadgets on this thing including the famous ejector seat that is used in goldfinger. Also machine guns behind headlight that's another big one tire slashing hubcaps revolving license plates. Smoke an oil slick defense tools. So if you've ever played the old arcade game spy hunter which had all these sort of things and either on its car or enemy cars. It does everything to this to this movie. Also i think i mean it didn't have any banana. Peels turtle shells You know if only they had a red turtle shells bond would have just sailed right through all those problems that flipping license plate thing by the way is a real thing in china as of two thousand eight. Chinese police reported that they were having a problem with a lot of people installing these remote controlled plate changers that that only cost about one hundred four hundred bucks at the time so that way they could they could drive under a fake license plate and then switch it over to a real one or something interesting to avoid getting tickets now and also there is a the acid martin although we do identify that very strongly with bond in the books it was a different type of luxury car that was used in most of the novels which were bentley's yeah definitely for the first few. I'm not sure i'm not sure. If if if it stuck with that for the whole for the first like four or five. I think yeah they usually before they started getting upgrades to him because again in the early books as well They weren't so tech heavy. Yeah that's true and bentley by the way also british car companies. Wait not a big surprise. There also gorgeous. It's not just like oh only a bentley. also about this specifically mike goldenberg on twitter asked if any cars with weaponry and injector seats exist in real life and okay so the mythbusters did create a car with an ejector seats. They cut a hole in the roof of a car. They built the ejector seat. They put buster in the whole rig weighed about three hundred pounds. They calculated how much rocket power was going to be needed to eject it. And they put the rockets into the seat and they tested it and And buster flew out. So everything's awesome right. It works perfectly aside from the part where it filled the entire cabinet the car with flames. Yeah as it turns out. It probably would burn you pretty badly now. Granted if you came up with some other objector method like you had built some sort of super powerful air catapult or if you had just a really strong spring that was held into place with latches that you could unlatch you might be able to eject someone from a car with outfielder filling the car also with deadly flames. But that's all i'd i'd i'd say it's probably a bad decision. Yeah let's just say that it's not something you're gonna commonly finding vehicles and size do not usually drive around cars that have that inspired by the way usually don't drive around incredibly flashy sports cars. Yeah turns out those get attention just like just like you know. Always winning the casinos. So yeah but all right. So there are other some other gadgets and gold goldfish that we should talk about the homing beacons. Which ain't these are thing. So the homing beacons in gold finger. I think were transmitters that they could pick up via satellite which you're not that unusual. I mean other than the fact that trying to transmit a signal that can be picked up by a satellite is a little Little challenging but you know now today we could totally have these kinds of but they'd be operating on various wireless frequencies where you might even get gps data from the satellite but it's not beaming information back to the satellite instead. It's being information to somewhere nearby Right right as of the year. That goldfinger came out Gps was actively guiding us navy ships. But this was called the navi- navigation satellite system instead of using Gps as we know today evaluated doppler shifts in signal from satellites with precisely known orbits and It wouldn't be more precise until we got into the kind of gps that we know today in the nineteen eighties. You know and even then i mean military obviously would have had access to the the best of the best. It wasn't until the late nineties that we started seeing that creep into markets where we could make real useful we really take advantage of. Gps because before that it wasn't so accurate you could do like turn by turn directions. Yeah they can tell you if you were in the general area and that was the best at any rate homing beacons. i mean. There are plenty of things that can give off a signaled that depending upon how far away you are totally track it. So that's not that far fetched although course the ones that appear in the bond movies tend to be smaller and more versatile than what you actually get in real life and i specifically nineteen sixty four. It was a pretty impressive. Pretty impressive feat. Oh and also since. We didn't delete this one. I have to bring it up. It's not really a gadget. But it is one of the early ridiculous examples of bond technology. Yeah i'm talking about the The the camouflage wetsuit What makes camouflage it had a rubber duck on top of it. yeah Bond kind of throws it away in disdain but yes it had. It was a wet suit with a rubber duck on it. I did not delete that from our notes. Because i felt like it was really probably the most important of all the technology that we will be talking about fair. It's fair it's early. That's fair we're moving onto nine hundred sixty five this thunderball. There was some tekken here. That was definitely a little more farfetched. Patil yeah they had a homing pill which was something that bond could swallow and had a homing device in it Being able to create a pill that would have a device strong enough to emit a frequency that you could pick up from. Any distance is problematic. Because where do you get the power source. Yes how had. Which is the problem with a lot of these. Very small gadgets. That were that were going to be talking about. Is really the power source capacity that even today we don't fully have worked out. Yeah we could miniaturize the electronics but miniaturizing the power. That battery technology has lagged. Well behind other technologies and we all know this is one of the big challenges with today's electronic is that we can make incredibly powerful electronics but often the battery has trouble keeping up with the pace. So that would have been a big issue a lot of the stuff that you think that the biomechanical type pills that doctors are using today to track things and experimental. Clinical trials are passive using a giant system. That can track the pathway the pill because the giant system is sending in signals that bounce off the pill like ultrasound or something like that so little tricky He also has a rocket belt where he it's like little jetpack allows him to escape after he kills a guy and here's the thing it was a real jetpack. It was actually based off of in fact it was a bell aerosystems rocket belt and that was something that bell aerosystems had developed for the us army specifically to let people do really short. John's i'm talking about like twenty feet. You couldn't go very far at all. You couldn't go very high and you couldn't go very far. Yeah but Hydrogen peroxide is fuel which was bizarre later ones used other types of fuel as well but they never were terribly useful. I very difficult to control their expensive There was a you know. Obviously there was the risk of injury so it was never anything that was adopted widely both still kind of a cool sifi thing to have in a bond film share other personal motion systems involved in this film include and underwater jetpack. Let them go through really fast. And you know the the pack itself was a little bit sifi. At the time i mean we. We have personal diver jet packs. Yeah jet nudge expert. Like little those little motorized assistant things that allow you to zoom through. Yeah taxila and we wouldn't have something quite that small until nineteen sixty nine so it wasn't that far right There was a portable river or actually as an air supply's what they called it in the film that would give just a short amount of air like a couple of minutes worth of air. That could be used either underwater or if say you were in a room filled with poisonous gas. You'd actually see this in a call back in a couple of other bond movies as well as a star wars movie. If i'm not mistaken but anyway it was one of those things where You know the actual spy agencies after they saw this started asking. Hey does this exist because we would totally use one of those and it totally did not exist. This was a request by the way by david from twitter. So david way totally wine to cover it but yeah it's kinda like two little. Co two canisters like. You would see in if you ever saw one of the slot cars that use the co two as the propulsion sorta like a cigar container shape. Yeah the two small ones. And then they were they were they mesh together with a little mouthpiece thing that you would just hold in your mouth. And there's just no easy way of handling that. Like the pressurized air which was kind of it would it would not be pleasant. Never put your mouth on co two. Cancer is what i'm saying for one thing. You're gonna freeze yourself or another thing you're gonna suffocate and for a third thing your eyes might pop out of your head because it's a lot of a of gas going into you all at once. Important safety tip. Thanks jonathan. you're welcome. Some might be that time when you tried to drill a hole in your head so there's also a cassette recorder hidden in a book which is totally legit. I mean spies like a big thing in spy. Technology is all about surveillance and hiding things in a monday objects like hiding hiding equipment in mundane objects so not at all a stretch now although again. I'm not sure if in nineteen sixty murmur whenever that fifty four thank you. I'm not sure if that if that level of miniaturization would have been possible so and also they had the skyhook system. This is super cool. This is the idea. Where james bond has this harness and it can hook up to a line. That's a tether. The other end of the tether is attached to a weather balloon releasing. The weather balloon goes up. The balloon goes up into the air. It does not. It's not enough to lift james bond. No but can then signal local airplane and the airplane flies by and it's got a hook on it that hooks this tether and pull james bond off his feet flying through the air and actually in this case he's got a lady with him Which is not a big surprise. If you watch the james bond series and you might think well. That's kind of cool. And i've seen that in other movies to were. There are other examples whereas all the batman films example And that's because it totally exists. Yeah this was actually invented by someone. We talked about before robert edison fulton junior. Now if that name sounds familiar. It's because you listen to our flying car episode where we talked about how he was one of the early inventors of flying car that never got off the ground and any rate i love it. When you judge yourself for puns so he developed this particular technology for the cia so it was actually built for spies so cool that it actually shows up in a movie and that it's pretty much the way it works with no some some They took a few liberties. But yeah more or less. It's the same concept. Then we get to. You only live twice in nineteen sixty seven Now we get the what i call in my notes. The killer cigarette thing is. I believe that was the technical term in fact. Yeah he's got a cigarette. The has a project that can fire via rocket and it is accurate up to thirty yards. So i look to see if i could find anything like this There are some similar technologies. Nothing quite to the level of this In nineteen fifty four nikolai cook love. Who was sent by the soviet union at that time to assassinate german anti-communist agitator was carrying a very interesting weapon. It was a weapon designed to look like a cigarette case but in fact it was actually a gun could fire depending upon which account you read it either it either fired cyanide tipped darts cyanide bullets or a puff of cyanide. But at any rate it's mood cook. Love decided not to assassinate the agitator actually turned himself into german authorities. Handed the the pack of the cigarette case over the gun over and sought asylum so he was essentially defecting. It was it was a huge story at the time. Yeah okay so. I mean there have also been single shot cigarettes as something that holds a twenty two caliber round that can be fired when operative pulls a string with his teeth. Yeah so so so. It's realistic shish. They also he had a gyro jet rocket gun which you might think. Oh there's no way this existed except this totally existed It's a little handgun that could actually fire projectiles. That were rockets. It's not a bullet a bullet. You fire a striking pin hits the back of the cartridge it ignites. The propellant gases that expand push the bullet out of the The barrel and it flies through an and goes toward the target in this case. It's actually a little rocket that the rocket fuel solid rocket fuel ignites and it takes off from the gun Now these were developed both by the russians and the united states but never really became popular and part of the reason was that they were not effective weapons close range because they had very low muzzle escape velocity. You're right. They wouldn't really reach reachable speed until they were about twenty five yards out of the gun right. So unless you're target was to five yards further away from you it. The the bullet was not gonna strike with the full impact. And you can imagine this. That's just imagine a like instead of a bullet fired from a normal gun where it's losing velocity as soon as the soon as it starts to exit the barrel. This is the the different because fuel is inside the bullet itself. It's propelling forward But it was not terribly accurate. It was not good at close quarters so it was really lightweight and had no recoil which was pretty awesome. We'll be back with some more spy technology in just a moment after this quick break and the right time that i'd story can work magic and right now you could all use a boost. I'm acted on obamacare. And on my new podcast anew. Pumpkin beers i will share stories from my life from growing up in the himalayan foothills. Who acting or five hundred. Bollywood friends i will also bringing stories of untold heroes from around the world. Lift our spirits and reminded us at anything can happen. Find an open. Kiss on the iheartradio app apple podcast or wherever you get your podcast everyone. It's michelle williams. And i love being able to share my story with the my pot checking in with michelle williams where my guest ninety real as we share the ups and downs of our mental health journeys. And i'd love for you to join me. I'm still all my own journey. But i want to be transparent with you. Because as i was posting all the highlights of my life on social media i was breaking down in too many people fall victim to the picture. Perfect image of a high live. So i created a space to discuss the good and the bad. We can laughs. And we we gonna learn and most of all. I hope to inspire you to go on this journey with me to better mental help this is gonna be your church your turn up and everything in between so join me on my podcast checking in with michelle williams a safe space for every kind of person. Listen to check in with michelle williams every tuesday. A part of the black affect on the iheartradio app apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcasts. And we're back and someone's not back with us. That'd be sean connery. how yes. This is the first film. I james bond film to. That's officially in the james bond canon. That did not feature sean connery. Yeah this would be on her majesty's secret service from nineteen. Sixty-nine george lazenby and The reason for connery's absence was because at this point he was becoming a big film. Starring could demand higher salaries. And so he did. Yeah and they said we'll go with someone else So some of the gadgets in this film included radioactive lent which actually was kind of a brilliant idea in a way it was. Linda had been irradiated that could be planted on a targets clothing. Like in a pocket or something. And because the irradiation they would be able to track the movement of the target They don't explain how they radiated the lent or radiation. It's giving off or whether or not you've just done this person with cancer None of the explained but the idea of being able to hide the tracking device in such a way that it would just naturally feel. Like someone's like someone's person. Yeah that that was what was really kind of interesting They had a safecracker device. It was kind of a little kind of like a cord had grappling thing that would Grapple onto the the combination. Dial and slowly turn the dial and start to judge through either mechanical stress. Or maybe even the sound of the tumblers which numbers were the most likely to be the right combination and takes a really long time to To work in the film. But that's that's probably fair this it was. It was one of those combination devices and it also had a document copying mechanism attached. Am i mean. Clearly that's what. I want all my safe cracking tools. I hear that that version was supposed to be like a liquid toner one which would not have been terribly useful in the field because if you tilted it than all this toxic toner liquid would come out of it but at any rate it was an interesting idea. And obviously i mean maybe maybe not. Obviously depending on how much you've read about xerox corporation that kind of tech had been patented back in the nineteen forties. But as of the end of the sixties. It was still the huge office sized ones. That i mean that we still have around today. That you'd fit into attache case not at all All right so you all but something you could fit in. Tasha's case was the tiny cameras. Bond us yes It wasn't even futuristic for the nineteen sixties. Walter zapped assigned a sub miniature camera in nineteen thousand nine hundred eighty six and helped start up the monarchs company to manufacture them It was definitely in use in world war two spies and Yeah film about a about a quarter of the size of thirty five millimeter film. Anyone listening still remembers what they're having like or even what film looks like What what's also interesting is that this was originally. That camera was originally made for luxury vacations. It was meant for rich people to take in their pocket and ended up. Being that speiser like dead is something we want that one that one diamonds are forever. So guess who's back with us now. Sean connery yeah. We missed him. So nineteen seventy-one diamonds are forever and now this one had some cool. Tech in there was a biometric fingerprint scanner in this movie which today are iphones have is a screen lock. Yeah crazy. The fbi would only start funding the development of the real tech as of nineteen. Seventy five i think the first wide use of the system was in japan in the one thousand nine hundred eighty s by the police force over there so so this was a few years ahead of its predictive technology. And you know. I have a laptop at home. That has the little fingerprint scanner. Where you can log on that way. So it's totes thing y'all also there was a ring getting back into that. Why are you grabbing. So much attention for yourself. Mr bond q. Gave james a ring. Like the com- james a ring that that will it will allow him to manipulate slot machines using electromagnet so that he would always win. Because that's exactly what you want from casino staff to to notice that you are anyway. I guess it was so that people would take it. Bring get attention to him so they come to him so he doesn't have to spend all that effort tracking them down. You know the way that every other spy in the world has to do. If i just make a big nuisance of myself. They'll come to me. I just have to escape. Five or six unescapable death traps. And that's all good side aside from logistic reasons. Why why would this network okay. So the old electro mechanical ones. I can't imagine flop machines Slot machines exactly the old electro mechanical slot machines. I can't imagine having electromagnetic being able to stop it at a specific point of the furthermore today slot machines are using digital circuits to determine whether you won or lost so electro magnets and you could probably created electromagnet strong enough to disrupt the machine. Yeah you can probably mess up that screen real good when it wouldn't pay out and also you would have very large men with no nicks wanting to speak with you very shortly after you pulled that stuff Moving onto the next film live and let die. Okay so sean. Connery is gone now. The greatest james bond in all of cinematic history joins us. I'm not sure whether you're being sarcastic or not right now. And that's delicious at roger moore about. He's the james bond of my childhood. Wow james bond. When i was a kid growing up so he is. I don't really think he's the best. James bond i think i think the most of the roger moore films are ludicrous but i also enjoy them for that specific Feature so live and let die. Had a couple of different weird gadgets in there was a rolex submariner watch. That had an electromagnet. Now this electromagnet didn't let a james bond win it at a slot machine and let him deflect bullets in theory. Although james bond immediately says this is totally not going to work and you know it totally wouldn't work. You would not be able to create first of all you never be able to pack it enough power for an electromagnet watch format to do anything to change the trajectory of a bullet fast. Moving projectile yeah. It's not it's basically just not ever going to be wonder woman's wrist bracelets i'm sorry yes. Yeah yeah. I'm sorry to cause well as long as i can still have my lasso of truth. That's all i really want then Also the watch was capable of acting as a buzzsaw which could cut through cable and both of these things would require so much power that again. Where do you get the power will you. Where do you fit a power source in something. That small could do this. Because if you're talking about a buzzsaw you need torque and speed to make that effective right so and that's and that's a physics issue. I think not a miniaturisation issue the way we've been talking about some of these. Yeah yeah i mean you could put a saw blade on the side of a watch face. I just can't imagine you being able to turn it fast. Yeah you could probably just manually staff with it right. Yeah that's true that's true. They also had a special clothing brush. That hit a radio inside of it. Which again not a big surprise. A surveillance again Radio transmitters that are disguised as other things. That's totally a real spy thing They had a shark gun that shot pellets. That expelled air at high pressure. Which would make targets explode. I don't know how to work this. Yeah this is another physics issue. I don't. I don't think that that's how. How could you create a pellet that that small enough to be fired by a gun and yet hold enough pressurized gas so that it could blow up at target and yet not explode when you fire the gun like even if you were able to pack compress air that tightly into that small of a package if it's supposed to explode upon impact or not even impact if it's supposed to imbed into a target and then explode just don't see all work maybe if it has it contains a as small portal to another dimension like a wormhole and that that dimension is just filled with highly pressurized gas all objections are lifted. Thank you laurin. And there was also in that film the deadly cadillac eldorado fired poisoned darts out of its side mirrors. Yeah those one of the bad guys cars. I would like to think that that's exactly the eldorado you would have won in glengarry glen. Ross if you had made the most sales that month first prizes eldorado that shoots poison dart. I i don't know. I think i could use one of those in atlanta traffic. I think howard enjoy it. I'll just remember their places. You're fired the man with the golden gun. Nineteen seventy-four roger moore. This this is the golden gun is one of those again. Sort of those iconic Things that you think about in the james bond series if you're a fan of the full series golden gun. It was a super cool concept and of course the bad guy in this film was such a great marksman that it didn't matter that the gun could only hold one bullet at a time you had to reload after every shot the gun itself could be disassembled and each part of the gun was disguised to look like something else. The gun's barrel looks like. It's a pen the handle like it's a cigarette case the chamber. The firing chamber is a cigarette lighter and the trigger is a coupling so you take it all apart and suddenly it looks like regular stuff. This man of gold. Also his belt buckle held bullets. that's that's both fashionable and day. Yeah yeah So this particular type of gun. I mean obviously these parts you could in theory machine parts that look like the sort of stuff and a lot of guns are meant to be disassembled. You'd take him apart especially if you want to clean them that kind of thing. Yeah so it's not like this is unheard of. however you know you. You wouldn't really be able to use these things like they wouldn't have any utility outside of being a gun because you couldn't build all that stuff in it would be very very difficult at any rate. I can't i can't imagine you'd have to use materials. That could withstand the pressure of a bullet. You know you're talking about that. Rapidly expanding i ask that propels the bullet. So whatever you're using has to be strong enough to contain that. I was actually a terrible choice for that sort of thing. Yeah it would have totally gold plating. Couldn't be shade of gold would be bad bad choice but but even even if this golden gun could not exist that kind of gun that is disguised as another object like i was talking about that That single shot gun. Yeah earlier. I also saw a single shot. Lipstick guns that were with russian spies And also there was great when the both russians and united states developed guns that were in the shape of pipes like the kind that you smoke smoking pipes and you just take the little pike stem off in with a quick twist to the shoot. The one bullet had to be really close for it to work It didn't have very good accuracy. Yeah i'm suddenly even even more afraid of matt frederick than i have been previous leads. That's understandable so then there's the solex agitator this was a device that was part of the doomsday machine in the man with the golden gun. In this case it was a tiny little thing that could somehow harness huge amounts of the sun's power and then devoted to something else whether it's for energy or say a heat ray or eliezer. So yeah the agitators. One of the things that i wish we had. I wish our technology efficient. Yeah that would be. That would be really nice. I can work on that. I wouldn't want it to blow stuff up mind you. I just wanted to to provide energy. Then don't don't lie a few things up okay. Then there was the amc matador car which converted into a flying car with wings and jets for more information on that. Just listen to our flying carpets. And we'll talk about all about how problems with flying cars that brings us to the last movie on our list. For part one the spy who loved me and that was nineteen. Seventy seven film with roger moore yet again yup and This one is the one that The kind of inspired us to talk about this episode when when the news broke this year about a particular vehicle that's featured in this movie There were a lot of people who wrote in and said we should cover this topic and so the lotus esprit was the car in the film that was able to convert into a submarine. Yes i believe. This was the first time that the lotus was used a james bond film and it would continue to be their their marketing partner for the next couple. I yeah it shows up at least once more if not more than that. Although lotus has never created a model that is convertible to a submarine. Didn't stop elon. Musk from buying it. Though he bought it and said that as a boy growing up in south africa it absolutely captured his imagination to see this vehicle turned into a submarine and also had torpedoes land machine guns and missiles it could also blast out cement that could act as either a smokescreen underwater or completely coat the windscreens of other vehicles and obscure their view. And so the nickname for the the car is wet. Nellie ve you know how much he spent out. The sky. Do not nine hundred ninety seven thousand dollars. How just under one million bucks. That's a prob. that's a lot of money so that's a whole bunch of money if you're alone. Musk and you've just bought a famous movie. Car that in the movies can convert into a submarine but in reality cannot convert into a submarine. What do you say screw it. I'm turning this into a submarine. That's exactly what he said. He said you know what i am. A rich man with lots and lots of of of ambition. I am going to turn this into a for real submarine if that is at all possible. And i'm going to replace the drive train with a tesla motor drivetrain. So it's going to be an electric vehicle top gear. Actually totally built out a replica. Lotus and and it in fact worked underwater in that it moved under its power and did not drown the driver for a very short period of time while it was in testing mode. I'm all there's a really a lincoln on unsocial. There's a really terrific video. There's water actually coming out of the key ignition into the cabin. It's not a good sign and listener. Thomas on facebook wrote in about this one and and said well who doesn't want to be able to change to when the california traffic. It's too stressful. Ohio diakite so a couple of other little things that happened in this movie. I think there was one point. Where james bond uses a ski pole. That ends up being a gun that can fire multiple shots from the handle. I look at the pictures of this. Because i don't remember i mean i've seen this movie but it's been so long i don't remember it This particular scene but all shots looked really awkward like it would have been really hard to aim that particular gun skiing. Confuses and terrifies meant to begin with. So i don't think it's a very good plan. They also had a special seiko quartz watch. That had a teletype printer. Saco another big marketing partner with the james bond series at this point in time Look like labels label maker the. That's the kind of paper that came out early. Paper look more like a label maker little not quite ticker tape the way that it probably would have been more like more like you know where the letters have been stamped so they raised up a little bit. You know like that kind of all naval maker even more. You wonder how logical how much paper could've watch hold and if it's raised. I mean if it's actually embossed than i mean that that requires a stamping requires some kind of swing and clearly roger. Moore's left arm is hollow and has all the working technology necessary to print on the stuff. They never explored in the movies. They don't tell you about that clear. I mean subtext And also there's a soviet you'd agent who had a cigarette that he could blow through an stunned gas would come out of it. I love that there's just this knockout gas that apparently all it does is rendered unconscious. And other than you briefly unconscious that wraps up part one of tech stuff bonds. With spy technology. We will visit part to next week. Hope you guys enjoyed. If you have any suggestions for accession tackle on future episodes. Maybe think. I need to take another look at spy technology.

James Bond Filming Locations Around the World - with Johannes Eklund

"Visiting james bond movie locations and seeing right where the scenes were shot is exciting. And today in our smartest in the room segment we have johanna zicklin who runs james bond locations dot com and who is visited many mandy james bond movie sites yohannes will be showing us some location pictures here as we talk so check out our youtube video on this podcast to see them. So let's get going. Welcome to the show your highness. Thank you very much nice of you to have me. This is exciting. We love going to james bond movie locations and vicky and tom and i have been to a number of them. But nothing like you've been. You've been the forty cities. I think where you've gone to visit all these locations. So tell us the excitement of visiting these actual filming locations and how you got started in it. Because i think there's a lot of listeners out there who would love to go visit actual james bond filming locations around the world. Yeah sure i mean. I don't know exactly where the excitement came from from the beginning. But i all i know is that i always had it. I mean this has been going on for about twenty years now and Obviously if when. I discovered bombed in the mid ninety s around ten years old. And then i mean. It was primarily the car gambling. Casinos brings also the exotic locations. I mean not mentioned the music which which made the locations look better. And i like this. This gentleman like character or bain demand spoke love languages and that grew interest for visiting the locations. In traveling around the world staying after luxuriance hotels dine at the fine restaurants. So obviously when you're ten you cannot choose where to go on holiday with family. So i had to focus on the the closest so i remember ninety seven. I think i i got my dad to take me down to amsterdam skinny bridge from diamonds. So actually that is the first bond location i visited and it's i mean amsterdam. It's not very exciting locations because there are only a few of tiffany case house and the skinny bridge then he basically though But that's that's how it started. And why doing my military question let me ask you a question about that so when you were there with your dad you saw the skinny bridge and on your website. You've got pictures of the skinny bridge. You mentioned the address of tiffany's house. Did you get over and see her house. No i i mean there was no information in the late ninety s. So obviously i missed. I mean looking around your come to your website. They'll actually find the address you haven't. I've been back a few times so so now i've covered that too. Yeah that's good. Tom and i have been to the skinny bridge and to tiffany cases out. She wasn't home when we were there but that was fun. It was fun it was. Yeah i mean it's a very beautiful city. So that's that's the best way. You can combine a nice holiday with some locations. Yes that's what i try to do. Do you travel for work to go to some of these for work. And then you just take a day or touring on not generally i. I have done some traveling with the line of the work. So i managed to squeezing a few for instance visited. Bern in switzerland just launched. But i was enough time to see the buddha grumball's office and the and good alvin so about the no it's it's It's private private trips. Authen out while doing military service i I met a guy who was turned out to be just as interested. I was in both james bond. Battles visting locations are and we haven't been to basically any when we met in two thousand five so we we started discussing and decided to go to thailand to see the james bond island and the just took off from there. So i think we actually goes through the ten months in the army discussing bond and where to go when this when this was over. Actually he missed He missed the trip thailand because he stayed in the army. So i took another friend that go see james island right. But it's ultimately he donald trump's together most of them. Yeah that's cool. Okay so you highness tell us about some of your favorite locations and also i need known bond locations Okay yeah yeah thank you. I think the five or six top james locations. Are corfu greece. And then we have for your eyes only for full mrs And then we have vary in prague in the czech republic which whilst location for casino royale and then of course you have to mention istanbul in turkey which featured in russia with love was nothing offended. I fold failed. And then i mean it's it's beautiful but more interesting. I think from a bombed perspective. Corfu color very small beautiful as is portugal which is also very very high on the on the list. You have all the scenes. With tracy bonzo tell the bellagio et cetera. Lisbon and the surrounding area jal set to bolland israel sky. And then bahamas is from a bomb perspective. One of the most interesting. And i would also like to mention tangier in morocco which featured both the living daylights and the latest inspector so also very interesting and maybe we should start. If i start with corfu which actually most my first real or main james bond location traipse so. This is more than ten years ago. I've actually been back in. I think twenty fourteen. But the i was in two thousand nine i can share the different pictures here. One of the establishing shots of corfu. We still monastery where molina rights with her boat. So corfu in itself is very beautiful island in northwestern part of greece just off the coast or bena and the corfu town which is the City the main main town unesco unesco protected so. It's a very very beautiful. It's highly recommended. And i think from a bone perspective. It's it's a must visit because you have so many locations and it's very convenient. You can drive around the island in a few hours and here core food whilst actually of course doubling four spain early in in the falem where bonus looking gonzales and his villa is finding on solids finding him at his luxurious villa and a villa nova in corfu to actually the the island where a private residence. I think you can rent it by the week for a ten fifteen thousand euros perhaps could back then. I don't know how it is today but we managed to sneak in. You mentioned you snuck in there you also on your website. When you talk about tan's year at the american you talked about the fact that that was private. So you've gone to some of these private places. You says abu jaw. We do pre planning to try to get into those or do you just for mercy when you get there more more baying for amassing better plan. Because you don't know actually how it's going to be if if anyone is going to be there How how how it looks but the interesting thing with with sylvan will silence. Villa is that we came in the same way as roger did in the film so you can actually through the bushes on the floor on the fallback. O there is yes and there is a baby very high wall there by Jumps yeah so you can. Actually we actually came in that way. Well that's exciting over ten years ago. Now so i think i can mention it here. And of course corfu has The car chase outside of the surrounding area is also corfu. We have Which probably the most famous at least from the bone perspective famous village in corfu. Which is the location of the the lure road so we rented the drove around. And then you have this You have the small cafe. And he's a big fan himself. Spills running the cafe so it's It's very nice. Stop take a greek salad there. I joined this location. Yeah that's the kind of Incidental intelligence it's great to know when you go to a spot that you've been to that that people will enjoy that's great. Yeah thanks how did you find where the filming locations were there. I think a major basically anything from ten years ago. I o to martin mulder who around on the tracks of seven yay. i mean. that's the greatest book. Martin does great work and we have a couple of copies of his book as well. It's great stuff. Yeah i i think that came out in around two thousand seven or eight so that made it possible for for us to go to corfu and actually finding all these locations Way before. I started researching my sense so yes to him. Yes so it's only there till you do some research yourself as well and so you've you found additional locations on your own somehow and yes definit- and we also found a few additional on this trade. He not every single detail is in his book. So there are few locations that you can discover yourselves. For instance in corfu. You have the steps that surrounds up when when chasing lock we found by accidents close to the albanian where house. We didn't know they were there but we found him when we another so that those words in his book stuff but the target is a nice little village of causing his book. And you have the drink-driving in and out from different roads. You have the church in augie or talk tower and you have the curve where seroja rice be slowed us. Yeah that's cool and they roads that lead this. This roads actually lead to party about they are. I mean that drive around those roads with with the right. Music is one of the best experiences i think. Yeah so when you're when you're looking for these places are sometimes it's hard to find the spot. Even if you have good info and intelligence ahead of time. I know. Tom and i spent two hours looking for the where the motorcycle began on sardinia. Y- in the spy who loved me but we found the exact spot. How about you how. How long has it taken you to find a spot sometimes Obviously sometimes you need to walk around for for a long time. But if you know it's there you you don't give up act easily. Tom knows we don't give up. I wanna be on the exact spot near come within a meter or two But that's that's cool so yeah sometimes it takes time but it's worth it because it's exciting to be right where they filmed this stuff. It's great stuff and when you when you in corfu. How much time did you have while you were there to be able to go see the sights we had a week. Okay oh that's also july two thousand nine hundred a week. We'll basically a vacation week. Okay yeah highly recommended but the definitely enough okay. You want to. You want to get some some to wind down. And i did one trip. Maury went to. Lisbon sardinia amsterdam london in twelve days in twelve. John i liked. I liked the week long way. Get get to enjoy the area a little bit. Yeah especially if you came across the poem for it. Yes yeah all right tell us more. Tell us so. You've been hundreds of of bonfield getting back to the roads. I mean it's it's actually quite feasible for a car to end up in a tree because the roads are actually very very steep. So i mean obviously it will put in for a job but when you drive around there you actually see how it's possible that's interesting and then of course we have the having knock y'all soft anchored at the columbia bay on the north eastern coast with plane. Says calcuta shocked. The service on the plane keke is the core fleet week so mice detailing plane the columbia bay. We didn't go diving. Invesco bought the but it's it's very nice view from the roads and then the killian palace which actually the casino think at least when when they feel in eighty one. This is This is a large careless. want close to town. It's now a museum so sadly it's not casino anymore But i and. I haven't found much information about the time when it was casino on that finished. I i think it's in the mid nineties but they're killian policies Bay beautiful nice museum and then in the back you have the the place where abundant resources are dying. Oh yeah that's beautiful. Yeah that's a great team. That's a great scene. Yes yes by nice and actually the garden. You have the viewpoint where the molina are working off to corfu. Tom corporate townies actually the village. You see in the far back so they are looking through town and then they end up here which is on on the side of the island so when you know it's Big funny but the movie yes yes I mean understand so have no club. The view from there So it's very beautiful location and you'll also have the the beach Where listen gets killed. And the old fortress which is nearby corfu town. Donald four the bainian warehouse so when they are travelling to albany they actually come back to count and that is warehouse and the house. Bobby's visible also in film and right behind that large white house. Is you find being steps up and sadly this. The old fortress offer tourists. I think it's very bad state. So we have to sneak in there. Jumping a few dumping offense or two to get to people's get this location i've ever recommending that. I mean you you. You don't go to corfu without seeing this the lock klis where he shoots locks mercedes and then look up on the cliffs And this is actually behind the arch. So it's possible for mercedes and up there when he comes from the other direction. Yeah i like these little espionage things yourself you know sneaking into places and adds it adds to the excitement of it being their alone is i mean it's worth Talent i we were in when we were in portugal we went to on her majesty's secret service the the mansion the wedding reception was and that's all private property and it's private property for the entrance. Way is all private property for twenty thirty minutes before you even get to the house. Entrances probably went to you. Cross the body of water river to get to them. Yeah that bridges out so we had to go along the we were on the property for twenty five trespassing for quite a while. I mean you couldn't drive across that bridge. The bridge was out. You could actually drive around on could drive. Yes so coming from south yes yes exactly right. Yeah but they were kind enough to let us in walk around and go around the back and see the fountain. That was actually in the movie. It's moved around the back of the house now but yeah it was fun so sometimes you gotta ask in nice ways. Yeah that's more just jump. Offense is that there is no one to ask your there. You go stacy as defense youngest asks. Have you ever had anybody actually stop you from looking at any locations is anybody actually said sorry. No you can't remain All being. I'm a and Unsure war it must have been a few times. I mean it when we went when we were in hong kong we went to the dragon garden and the a high-fat precedents gown and the best private residence and there is someone guarding it so we we rang. The doorbell. hamels actually let in to the garden but only four for a short while and we wasn't we weren't allowed to go to the mausoleum so we only sold the the dragon and the the main house of we didn't get up to the mausoleum the coolest scaremonger location status. So that's unfortunate but that's one mean and then kong china you don't take any risks new there you go. Hey it's better to dress nicely. But in greece it'd be easier to to get in and other benefits with corfu is obviously that is very close to the greek mainland and you take ferry over to the mainland and about two hour drive break into degrees you find the columbia. Which is the safety of the village. Where mattera clips are located. Yes that is one of the most beautiful on occasions. I've been to most beautiful location ever in the world. Have you been there to no no love the list. Yep yeah i mean the. The pictures will not do justice. You have a lot of these. Massive rocks with monasteries on top. So it's it's breathtaking. Is there more than one with a monastery. Think they're all around twenty monasteries located on not on exactly the same kind of role but but More or less and you have a few monasteries that are even more spectacular than thanks serious. There was there. Were rumors that the monks up there were hanging clothes and stuff just a script the filming because they didn't want the the actual filming bean to be done. I think it also it also walls that they they weren't paid. I mean think they was supposed to being paid about. The money didn't reach them. Ended up some place else. So i think that's one of the reasons why they said the torch to filming down the money. The greek mainland is definitely one of the most beautiful locations in some visit. I've been there. I have actually a family in that area nice slept. it's so and i also believe. Now it's it's more announced the months. I've heard amongst are moving to mount athos which monastery state the north northeast so a lot of seeing kofu. It's very convenient location. Berries go there for a week and get to get it all That's great and you would fly into. Where has its own apple. Okay all right so you can charter flights. At least from from sweden you have charter flights. Yeah okay so probably all over europe. You can combine it with a trip to athens but then made some fait long train. Ride from athens up to the to the Northern pot okay but you can go by train from athens to matteo to see the case the rocks so some trivia about cool we found the square in corfu town. It's it's interesting to know that they they make the deal. Toki wine in courtroom. So it's a it is a greek wind from corfu. So that is obviously why bombed profess that wine to the by trebol. The wine and we found a restaurant in corfu town. That not only served the talk you to talk wine but the famous core food dish fish dish with tomatoes souls. You had to have. That sounds good so eating. Drinking wine is That was amazing experience experiencing corfu. Yeah does that good stuff all right. Tell us a little bit more by your your next favorite. The next tree was actually only one one year later and that was a treat to czech republic. Prague and body and that journey should start. I think in prague it's it's ec prague in the czech republic is interesting primarily from from casino royale perspective. Drug in itself is a very beautiful town so it should be did anyway but you can. You can see some locations as well. Prong has the new house. Which of course was dryden's office in the title of casino royale The only thing that is actually supposed to be in prague and then we have the parliament. The committee room is actually also in prague. Not london this is Library from a monastery in frog. It's open to open to the public. That's gorgeous this city. Of course you have the mission impossible to. That's stuff charles. Free right yeah. You have probably a lot of films. Their mission impossible I haven't seen that. In longtime friend of the pearl movies actually filmed. There was as mission impossible. Yeah but then of course. We have the miami body worlds. It's also the ministry of transportation in prague. So it's basically all the miami scenes were filmed in prague and Actually also the lobby of bone so telling venice us where he realizes that. The money's gone. That is the lobby of the national museum in prague. Wow and just do that. It's like okay. We're gonna take place in college something else scouting group that does all that for scenes and for. That's got to be a fun job so we found a great spot for this. I mean i think they do the have been doing a great great job to i mean they. They always manage to find the most beautiful case insecure cooperation. Yeah nice. But i think maybe they did a better job in the past. I mean they found more more exotic locations. Now it's more focused on subsidies where they can get refunds and where it's easy to feel. Yeah i think the exotic locations to when when they started it was they were places that the normal average person in the world was not going to get to because travel. wasn't that popular then or it was too expensive and so on and so they focused on a lot of that. Now it's like you're saying they move into a little different direction. Because i think people can get to these places but getting to the bond filming locations fun. Great thing we've been to about one hundred. I think locations. Maybe tom and i and vicki's the bunch to in england so it's fun stuff. I mean like you said. I mean it's it's to remember. I mean these were primarily jet-set locations. Yes in corfu. Tina swiss alps jamaica. Bahamas i mean like you said. It's not an average right average destination but obviously that's it's very difficult to find that now because many people can go almost anywhere. So that's a shame but you can find some exotic locations in the czech republic two hour drive from prague to look it. Locate is very small medieval town It looks like this this montenegro in the field. But this is actually eight czech republic to german border in the west ought to its two hour drive from prague and you have this amazing medieval castle up on the hill and the town is surrounded by by a river so it's only has a bridge and a very small role that you can access the village so highly recommended of course if you're in the czech republic we actually stayed in this. Oh type Which is seen behind bombed on vesper. Matheson the film sadly there are no at least in twenty ten. There were no cafes on the square or the town square sills parking. Lots so that was built for the fame saying you mentioned that on the website So that's That's a pdf. I i would have been the major over. Look i would have made those cafes. Put up those cafes exactly. Do they get enough tourism to support something like that. maybe they could promote. It's a little driving down those roads towards luke it and when you see through the through greece was amazing experience Very very beautiful and only a fifteen minute drive away. You get to counter roddy. Which is the main main location for casino royale. Baseball's montenegro in the film but these days Spa town and this was the montenegro. Train station House isn't in use. It's not a train station at all but is very beautiful and you also have the deleted scene that posting their embalmed on vesper exit train on walks through. The station was seen. So that'll on location. When you talk about the train on your website you talk about the route. That doesn't actually exist that you can't take the train to montenegro were. I can't remember what the routing of it was. You said that you couldn't do the money to negro the train. The train curve. I actually found the train curve whether train. Yeah train comes through tonight. It's in the eastern part of the czech republic. I think the train is very obvious from the feeling a check train do. It's the pendolino australian going between prague and ostrava and some of the cities. But i think it starts in prague. So if you're traveling on the pendolino east you will eventually get to the curve from the okay. I the river but montenegro is so small so you couldn't. You couldn't take night train montenegro because I don't think you can even travel on the train for more than an hour or two of when you actually get to montenegro. But we have to assume that bombed start seen switzerland or maybe france. Germany somewhere Wherever arlington beach would start his journey. Maybe london so that makes more sense and there but income vary. You have both hotel hotel. Strong did Which is going to poop barry. Nicer ten stay there unites and magnificent. Tell obviously they have different entrances. This is the main main building boneless actually staying in the cheaper week. I think it looks better because that overlooks the parking lots. Yeah if you decide to visit karlovy var. It's highly recommendable. The recommended to stay few nights at the ground temple or who tells founded in the lobby was at least in twenty ten. The lobby will be recognized. Ill they had redecorated. Little puppy animators. The same i've been the buttons in the elevator. So that's a very very nice and of course you can dine in the restaurant. We had in their at their table. Warm on the evening bang experience. Of course. I don't know how it looks now but the was ten years ago and i think the most interesting thing about the round kalpa is that is actually located where it's supposed to be located in the field so you see the hotel from the casino building actually walk the short walk from the celtics and former spa. I believe now. It's closed It's open sometimes to to the public but both open when we were there so That's one location. We miss the interior of the casino building. But the building itself is is very beautiful They actually used the same logo type in the film. Actually only replaced. Louis louis fourteenth four in real and we've cosby s parking. Lots on finds his asked. You see casino building in the background. So that's how close it is. You see that there are quite a few tourists that have lots of money in inquiry by it's It's a bit of an upscale tourist destination. So you actually see quite a lot of nice costs that people would find istanbul. More were interesting yeah. Let's look instant bul. And then you mentioned ten right. Yeah and i also have a few pictures from the bahamas. If that would be interesting is some bull is one of the most interesting Locations from bombed historic you have from russia with love film bearing sixty three cont. I can't imagine how they manage to fill them in in turkey in the sixties. Yeah same japan. It must have been very difficult but they managed to do it and of course. Istanbul is is very beautiful city. It's a must see for for any bombed bombed fan suddenly bomb location fan. But you need to go to stumble. Regardless i think and what's nice about it is that it's a it has been fairly untouched. In many of these old locations many other sixty locations from the sixties for instance in tokyo have disappeared. Obviously but in in istanbul you can see fine these this little gentleman. This is where ground is story. When she's s. I don't remember the name of this. It's it's a accessible to public. And then you have the the road but tanya walking towards club this is way off. The ground location is actually close to the The grand bazaar. This taxi ride away so this is a bit outside the onboard. But you can still find the walk and the mosque in the background. Where she's walking up and bone drives with the in the rolls royce and the these buildings are also very recognizeable. Two streets have changed but the the buildings have not and you. Have you have the blue mosque in the background. Things have changed. They demolished mosque. So you can count on istanbul staying basically the same but one of the most interesting locations in some will i think is the The russian consulate. And i also have martin molded to thank for for finding back. I think he wants to first. They believed this was located close to the ground bazaar and the recent most in the background but they couldn't find it and ultimately a taxi driver in new location nights and the across the bosphorus fairly long away. so it's completely the other side of the town. Believe that taxi driver. i can take you there. It's going to take us quite a while. Fear might be large. This is what it looks like now. These this dance gate bought. The house is briefly seen in the field the consulate and that housing stance. So that's in very very nice location. I think someone let us let us into the garden here. We didn't have to sneak in. I don't know if i would do that in turkey. I think we rang the doorbell and someone someone into the garden. I don't think any any scenes perfume inside salami the studios holes and then the basilica cistern. Yes this is very interesting location. But it's very difficult to to take in when you there because it's so massey magnificent building managers location but it's the pictures will occupy justice. I understand that this was sealed off completely open. Tourists into i think the late sixties or even So this was actually closed for the public. When they filmed in instances we either know that. But now it's obviously a major tourist destinations you will not be there gnome. They have out these They have constructed some kind of walk through. There is the most a lot of watering it in bed in the early sixties. And that's almost always gone. There is some more about them now. Is that a seasonal. Do you know if that's a seasonal thing just happened to be low when you were there or is it always low night. I don't think so. I i think it must have been sealed off. It was built as a water reservoir and So i i don't think they need it now. I wouldn't drink that holder anyway from look good. Yeah yeah yeah that's too. But the beaches justice. But it's it's you will end up there sooner or later if you go to resemble you you you companies it. And then the orient express station where commissar bans is watching the train. I think this was actually long. Martin moulders top ten most beautiful locations movie orient express station. Hey it's a nice location. But i would have preferred to jump on the orient express that just go to to visit. It's it's very nice. A the station doubled as all the other stations throughout the balkans Though older yugoslav stations within from different angles here have been able to do. Have you been able to ride the orient express. No not yet. i'm i think it's counting on the in five years okay. Five years time. My wife. And i said many years ago it was really really from istanbul to perry. No we were in venice Vanished peres. yes yes i believe. I assume it was worth it. It was it was it was. It was just so different than anything because i don't do a lot of train travel so it was really in the. Us do a lot on. The train are trying to turn to do that. Yeah i can imagine yeah. Yeah it's it's a. It's a must do the long journey from istanbul to paris. I'd say six days. I think i believe it's only possible to do it once a year in recent years And it's i think it's gone up the price. I think you have to pay around nine thousand years. Oh person and you need to be too obviously and you should really be four. So you open the interconnecting doors between would have an ice journey but yeah in wait for for the train ride you can be station and then of course. Istanbul has a lot of other interesting locations. From the when asked you have maidens tower in the middle of the bosphorus major tourist destination. Of course. it's actually quite small so it's difficult to believe how how submarine could hide in there. But that's a movie magic and it's very nice location too and you can also go up the river. I think about half an hour. An hour on in the taxi to get to an extras cool residents. That'd be fun. Supposedly located in baku by john about the actually missed. Then i think it will be uninspiring when they went to to respond bullying in sky. Full i only this is one of the kiosks in any stumble. Bond on getting bay is hiding behind one of these when ascending lehmkuhl is. This looks very similar to one in with film but this is not the one. We actually didn't find the right one when we do that. So i need to go back to boost. Goes i know where now go with lovely models that anita i only included this teacher where craig comes out in sky. Phone officer Finding ronson pursuing trees. I think it's unbelievable. Not an inspired choice of location in sky full beautiful city but it had already been done and the top of the ground bazaar had been used previously in the international clive owen film. I think exactly the same spots as sky for and then i. i don't think i've seen it. Actually the other the second taken movie we'd liam neeson also sending stumble so boring connecticut ascii anywhere that year failed. They should film that that you would like them to this. I haven't included on on a big fan of barcelona. I think he's got some stoning buildings and all the goaty stuff so like them to fill sti- can at some points anywhere that he failed. Yes that would be brilliant phil when obviously i would like them to come to. Sweden told me it's very beautiful city not to do here. Of course craig has already been hearing the girl with the dragon too but it would nice to get bombed here. We have another nature. They have favoured norway now in in no time to die and also to impossible. Movies have favoured norway. They have very big tax reforms that we don't have that in sweden not yet anyway but i think two main continents. That are underused. I mean. I would like to see more of africa and i think also south america almost been to rio. Bolivia and the caribbean. But i think south of south america has a lot to offer Mean both the nature and the cities. I haven't been there myself. Ankles radio is is very high on the list when the the kobe pandemic is over but the africa maybe south africa again. Yeah what what. I like about talking about there. As we mentioned earlier in the early bond movies they were exotic locations. Europe has opened up so much for tourism. Some of these other places at least from the. Us you don't see much travel to so those are still more exotic places to at least the audience. I don't know about the european audience but the that'd be awesome to see. Yeah yeah i i think. From european perspective south america will always be be exotic coasted so far away bone hasn't been to australia. Yeah that's one one opportunity. But then i i love asia myself. I have into hong kong several times. I've studied that I worked in. Shanghai showed while so i love asia and i think there there are a lot of places left for him to go. I also think he should go back to hong kong. I don't think they took the benefit of hong kong even though featuring he fields i think they missed is some of the magnificence of hong kong. Somebody short scene in in the only twice and then golden goose Missed it completely mean. You don't get the feeling hong kong. Obviously jamaica is one of the holy grace of of locations so you have eliminated by locations and of course dr no and now you have soon. You will have no time to die us. Went so teams so jamaica is one of the is the holy grail. You mentioned jamaica there then you also mentioned you. Bahamas was one of your favorite places that is also one of the. I think i think maybe there are five or six. Holy grace jamaica. Obviously won the bahamas. Japan i also think if you go to india that would be a similar experience as bahamas now. Have you gotten up to peace gloria. She'll torn now. I still have that list. Celebrate christmas there. We that on your list. Yeah we've been there town. I've been there it's it's spectacular. Imagine you ski down. No we're okay we were. There was like september october. They were just closing. Actually oh the ski stuff. I think our whatever. It was the week before they were going to close down. Yeah short period of time before on for the started. I think yeah it was fun it was that was a great place on my list Definitely any any bond fan should have that list. Yes yeah. I would like to go there christmas so you can ski down. Yeah maybe actually celebrating. Christmas up there is in the vicinity. That will be very nice yohannes. I haven't seen too. Many exotic locations bond up into vinnie's twice are being like god that where they filmed the chasing onto my sally's both through the tunnel and along the light custody from boss perspective. That was amazing. Imagine and of course. I've been to london a lot to lots of course as broad as widely travelled as you sell but these these macy's mouth inspiring airplane doesn't it. It's just so fun to do this so tell us a few of the other places. You don't have to show us the pictures. Just tell us a few of your other favorite spots you been to and why you like those spots from other movies and you can go all over the map on this literally. Yes oh i would have to think. I mean bahamas is is nice. Both ball perspective. Of course but you'll. I also liked i saw when it came out in two thousand and five of the sunset with pierce. Brosnan is also shelton in the bahamas. I think they did a much better job. Promoting bahamas in that film than they did in in both casino royale nervous and never seen again. I mean never seen that but again completely missed. Yes targets when filming. In the bahamas. It's i mean you don't even want to go. It looks so gray and boring. What has he was nice. You have a great thing on your website about your feelings of maximillian largo a little. You put together. I will put a link on the page kind of describes your feelings. And i wasn't sure if it was your feelings for the actor or the character with the when i. Yeah i i mean if you compare it to those who chilies largo is. I think klaus. Maria is a catastrophe. I i know many people like him. I think i have more negative comments than positive on my video on youtube. When i posted that i posted it with is most some of his most stupid deceives. It's a fun really yeah. I'm glad you enjoy it. I think he's i. I believe that he was a close friend of connery. And that's why he was caused so i think he's a completely wrong for the role of argo. That's also because i i love for chile and off grid. Yeah so largo and funeral be. Yeah i think the two of the greatest villain couples the winds blow for my boomed actually like carver can say what you want about stanford But harbor standards. I think is is nice and then of course we have come all conon and yes. I think there's a real underwriting henchman. I don't think he's really for me in. That is one of the best things about that. Particular film is him in in his in his role in the in. Not saying anything. These deadly you know. Yeah yeah yeah. There's some great ones dario license to kill. That's great i. I loved arbor dhabi in that movie. He was terrific. Value is such a believable villain that term but evilness like man. That's good stuff. Tell us about some of the other bind locations. You've been to that you you think our listeners should should know about and maybe put on their agenda head to. Yeah i mean as i said bahamas is a must for any bond fan. Nice holiday there and one of the greatest locations. You can actually find underwater because you have the volkan location so you can go diving connive around the balkan. We found ronald louise. I think in the sand stay left there and you can find the the rock. That's roger wraps the rope around in for your eyes. Only obviously old underwater scenes in. I think the first twenty films have been failed in the bahamas also decided on wolf to seize so hamas is Tangier is actually a very nice location. Surprisingly nice it's it's very international. Feel jeers wall. A special trading sewn in morocco. So they have. They have less. Strict rules can find alcohol there. They have a casino a lot of smiling going on. So it's it's a very rough city but that's that's what makes it so nice and of course you have a lot of the the living daylights locations you're still untouched. Basically since since eighty seven. You have the rooftops. You have the casper for the trade convention was filmed and brad whitaker's willa. It'd be lemon dube as actually been on the king now so it's a state owned by state governments used for four hundred unitary so it's the pool. Area is not accessible for the public and we asked but aren't dogs so you will never get into that kuhn. Sadly an armed garden kenji. I'd respect that too but the villa. The villa is very nice and it's located right by the by the atlantic ocean long road with many luxury villas quite goes to the royal palace marina so tank. Jesus is Tangiers morocco magnificence location. And you can go up to casablanca of course casablanca and feeling bad. I believe in in the forties. But it'd be nice to seek as bank anyway right and the marrakech. If you like sex and sixty i think they feel the the Dubai scenes in morocco. To okay. cool cash. Did you get over across the street to see gibraltar all. Yes good good you mention i forgot. Gibraltar is very nice very convenient location. You can spend a day or two there and get it. All from the exercise at djibril dot is very cheap. they don't have any over very low tax. Oh very cheap alcohol. Gambling combined team cigars brought. Dr is kind of place. Yeah yeah it's it's very popular. I believe is thank parties and from the bond perspective. It's it's very interesting and of course it's british still and they make you aware of it. It's more than london. i believe. Lot of flags everywhere and the monkeys are still a at the rock. So that's that's very nice location. And i think an honorable mention should be this in the along. The atlantic coast to three hour drive from gibraltar north on the spanish coast but it goes to portugal which doubled for vanna of course in die another day. These these actually one of the oldest cities in europe and very beautiful. You can definitely spend a few days there maintenance some sued now. The bar that they had in that scene were jinx comes out of the water allah rider. That was all just a put up. I think it's not really a bar there right. No it's sun kind of the features matter at time and maritime authority okay who resides in that building so sadly knocking on the on the beach act so we can't get a drink you can walk. You can walk out to las organise. it's a long. It's it's not a. It's not an island as in the movie that will. Cgi so you can walk out there right so now you you've done these with all these different james bond locations on your website. You've got a few non movies so you've got. There's a movie that we're working on right now. Billion dollar brain working on a podcast on. Yeah and so. You weren't helsinki and you've got doctors from there. I was there two years ago. I didn't know i actually wasn't into the harry palmer stuff so crews so. I was trying to stream the movie on a cruise ship. Before we got into helsinki. So i knew stockman was shot but i love the the pictures got in there that we were there in the summer. So different than the went imagine helsinki. So it's very nice city. It's a bit bit like stockholm but smaller very friendly. Nice food too and i think it's more right to be there in the winter much nicer in the summer. But it's it's more right. Yeah the cruise ship went when the cruise ship went. So yeah of course. Finland has been used doubling for russia. I think we have the full protocol with michael. Cain and pierce brosnan richardson from. I think it's eighty four or eighty six may be. I think the soviet scenes feeding in in finland to okay but is nice movie. Yeah so Million dollar brain billion dollar brain have inland and then some scenes were filmed in estonia. Right i think across the border. So now you've got up you've got on your site noble house in night. Nightwatch the harry palmer billion dollar brain or the persuaders. I think you've got up there too. Yeah i ended. If you persuade us locations from the riviera in the french riviera on monaco niece or a longtime favorites of mine. Monaco i think is the casino. The monte-carlo is one of the most beautiful window. -cations together with greece. And so it's it's a favorite of mine. Yeah noble house setting home cone and a few cnc macau very nice mini series with bras lonnie. Eight and now. It looks to me like all of the movies that you've got on your site. Even though they're not james bond they've got if they're not james bond they've got one of the james bond actors and a correct i see. Yeah either brosnan are more. I think is what i've seen. Yeah the the exception is harry palmer. But he's as close to james bond as you can get a great job. You were terrific with that. Yeah i mean it was guy. Hamilton rick thing Harry saltzman producing can had michael caine eight also had countless right. Jeez so yeah got goldman. Yeah that's it yeah. I was in a ken. adam. I think was yes. Oh yes maybe yeah so. Yeah that's true so then schools. Maybe i should mention russia house which connery ninety that was i think. Correct me if i'm wrong. I think that's one of the first films that was shot on location in russia. I think it will feed them just before the fall of the soviet union so probably ninety nine hundred and okay. there are scenes filmed on vacation in saint petersburg. I haven't seen it in a while. Maybe moscow moscow but at least pittsburgh so into some of those sites so so the russia house is very very interesting movie in that perspective and the lisbon locations in russia. houses very nice. Yeah lisbon's beautiful city. That was fun. Yeah we have a good timer. Where i would like to see bongo. I think you touched I think it would be nice if i could go back to russia. I mean most of the book scenes with him in london goldeneye. So it's on right and then maybe south africa. That will be nice. He didn't go there and seventy one but them. Maybe it's time to go back. I a lot of scenes in in london threat films. Have you been to mouse two locations. In london i have. I've been to london quite a few times. Actually we had planned me and my friend had planned to go round outside outside london to get all the the outskirts locations lance troubling times to in funeral. We've the ams ems gate from omaha. Magistrate services cetera. So we had actually planned to do that. In in connection with the premier lost april and obvious reasons that got cancelled so i hope we can go to london for the for the premiere when that happens maybe they tober. That would be fun.

THUNDERBALL - Pre-Title Sequence Decoded

"Sean connery and the gun. Barrel iraqi jet pack a fake funeral. James bond punching a woman bonds french connection cryptic latin inscriptions. That's on a chapel wall water cannons shooting the bad guys from the aston martin db five and of course a fight. These are some of the things will examine as we look into the pre title sequence in the one thousand nine hundred sixty five james bond. Movie thunderball hi. This is dan sylvestry. Tom izzo and spy movie navigator dot com. Please join us as we're cracking the code of the pre title sequence in thunderball. So let's go. We see for the first time in the gun barrel. It's not bob. Simmons the stunt guy. It's sean connery goldfinger. It's fun and from this point on. We are actually going to see bond in the pre title sequences in the gun barrel and not a stunt man one a concept they needed to change the clip here as the aspect ratio for thunderball change from the previous movie so they couldn't reuse the clip that they had from the prior movies. One thing we haven't mentioned yet in our pre title sequence podcast series the origins of the gun barrel. We have mentioned the prato secrets in the nineteen. Thirty four million chrome passion in an earlier podcast. But we haven't yet talked about the ending to the nineteen th remove eight the great train robbery which ends with a gunman pointing the gun. View and firing. Some people think stain also influenced the golden barrel sequences that these things were around decayed and decades before bond was even written. So that's kind of cool and it actually is and then when you hear about how it was made it sound like it might have been in the back. Somebody's mind but when morris bender put that together he was just playing around and said. Hey if i shoot through this gun. Barrel i can do this. Pretty cool stuff. We had mentioned the pre tuchel secrets in the nineteen thirty four movie crummy that passion in an earlier podcast. We've seen in the first three. James bond ian production movies two circles that cross the screen and by the way. I have always thought those were the double. Oh that's just my take on it. I don't know it looks like it should be the double o but you're in thunderball when the gun barrel ends the gun barrel finally more to the first seen in the pre title sequence it doesn't just fade out like it did in the other movies it actually shows us part of the first seen within the gun barrel. First time this has happened. So this is kinda neat. This is cool and a great addition to the series and the circle shows the initials here j. b. and as the camera pans backwards it shows. Jb's blazoned on a casket. What again for about twenty seconds. We must think this is james bond dead again. It's the fourth movie by anne productions and his dead again in the beginning they just love killing them off right at the beginning of the movie. Yeah we remember from russia with love. Of course it wasn't him. It turns out but wow i don't know this makes me queasy and i don't know what to do because bonds debt already and i'm thinking wait a minute. There's another twenty one movies. How can this be. We know that. Now we're back then back then you didn't know it so there are some advantage the being in the future but this makes me queasy. I got bonded out on. This makes me want to have a separate coffee. Because i gotta wake up here. 'cause bonds dead. I'm just too nervous. Hang on oh. Hey we find a delicious coffee for you. By the way i mean. This is spy coffees and you can find them at spy coffees dot com and our listeners. Get twenty percent off with roast. Like spymaster dark rose or double agent medium. Rose which. I'm drinking right now or agent blend light roast in whole being ground and even some k cups make clandestine trip to spy coffees dot com and use the spike code. Sh- spy nath espy y. n. Av and you'll get twenty percents off at checkout all right. let's get back. I think i'm awake. We see as a funerals ending in the small beautiful french chapel. James bond on this inside balcony speaking with a woman who turns out to be his french six connection. I'm pleased to create. Is a lighter setting for these pre title sequence. Of course last two films been set at night giving a dangerous about ding atmosphere. This one feels more normal more inviting the viewer into a lot lighter feeling except it's a funeral the funeral the funeral with j. b. on it was really for jacques pouvoir who was specter number. Six who bond reveals murdered two of his colleagues. Now i'm wondering what is james bond doing at jack. Bu vars funeral it makes me wonder why a healthy. Why is he there. Now we don't offer killed to double o. agents or colleagues. Perhaps from the cia or the french bureau. Those french contact who's credited as mademoiselle the port says at least you've been saved. Air filter removing passed away. And you sleep so they told me it comes out. The bond is disappointed. He didn't get the kelham himself to son disappointed. You didn't killing meal such move on murder two of my colleagues. So maybe i'm listening to this thing too and i'm thinking maybe the french contact just told us what bond is doing there. In france he was going to kill ovar and maybe move are found out in states. This whole thing or something. I don't know yeah. If this is but buddha's funeral it looks to me like somebody beat onto it. She says he may have died in his sleep. But given that this is somebody bond was going to be going after. I kinda doubt that somebody probably be to it. Yeah on the wall next to the balcony is latin tanks Day on our downstate latino. We've locked in today's in get a definitive translation of this book. Best guests Ken adams team special. The closest we could find for the translation is something. Like he will sign that we'd god trying to portray religious significance to the funeral. My bay well. Who knows i mean. Latin is a tough language. Uh it's the old saying when we had to study at it was horrible. We used to say. Latin is a dead languages as dead as can be. I kill the romans. Now it's killing me. So i i don't know we pronounce that right or not but anyway i. I know a cousin of mine who does know latin. A lot of latin. And he's one of the brightest guys. I know so i said to him. Hey this is what we got. What the hell does this mean and he quickly replied he recites or pleads his 'cause before god so the latin that vicky just read meticulously will means he recites or pleads his 'cause before god so now i'm thinking wait a minute this is kinda cool this could actually fit into the movie it makes sense if we look at he being jack beauvoir and who at the moment we think is dead. He could be pleading his case before. God right now like. Hey god i'm gonna sassan and i did my job. I don't hold that against me. It could be a general message which include spunk to and what he's about to do the things to worry still alive. Yeah hey play my case right there before you. I'm going to do my best to kill the walk. I liked that sleep. Great all we have this this little inscription and now we could put into this pre-title clip and say wait a minute. This has meeting so he liked. That you found this texan now. Tom found there's a. There's this latin texts in there. And i'm looking for a plaque or something i can. I have not seen this text anywhere on the on the screen. I'm looking over and over again. And it's inscribed in the wall near the ceiling and it's believable that would be inscribed on a chapel wall because they do that kind of thing but including it in the movie. This part of it is intentional. So it's not it's not a proud is there but i think it was intentional. That included this part in this clip. So this is good. I think we uncovered something here that most people would miss. Well i mean like. I said i think it's ken. Adam said no. But i think it's believable and that it would be inscribed on the chapel wall but including it in. The movie certainly is intentional. So i've looked into this a little bit more. And i found other pictures of the chapel and inscriptions are written all around the chapel near the ceiling as we see in the pre title clip. And so what we see here is part of the total that seems to be really in the chapel. So james bond locations that blocked spot dot com and talk to the guy there and ask if we can use some of his pictures that we're gonna put in the video and indeed there is inscription all around the chapel so not set. This was shot in this chapel and those inscriptions are really on the wall. I'm glad you've found that. Because like vicky i thought this whole thing was a set not a real chapel. When i noticed the latin i went back and looked at this whole scene. I went frame by frame. Trying to trying to catch that whole phrase. the dame's really hard to pick up. Yes but i also looked at the on the balcony itself there. There's some are work of some kind and there's a letter be repeating and the artwork. So i was thinking maybe this was be for var well but if it was in the chapel when they got there for filming it. Obviously just a coincidence. So i thought this was really a nice set piece that they say all doors lead the pinewood ascoli almost pictures because it shows it really was filmed at the chapel at the chateau not a set like originally believed. That was fun. That was fun discovering. That's i'm glad you pointed that out down with the latin stuff in there it was great it was great to see that so is the funeral is exiting the chapel bond and his french contact. The woman walk out onto the outer balcony. We can interpret what bond means when this contact asks. He's though anything and lynch station can foolish burned and bound replies looking at her and then a way later perhaps died. Good bond moment we. He watches the widow. Get into the limo opening the door for herself and bond says to his french contact as i said come on is important here. We're going to explain that in a few minutes but remember that bond said on all right so we switched to the chateau. The widow arrives and enters the room. In which james bond awaits the chateau is the chateau donnay located about seventy eight kilometers west of paris. France near drew all right. I don't know it's a frenchtown d. r. e. I think it's drew. My wife speaks french and she said that. And it was me and it was built from fifteen forty seven to fifteen fifty two so in non covert time. You can go actually sign up for tours of the villa. It's pretty cool. We're going to have to do one of those trips. I would love to get go stand in that tap absolutely. So we've all wounded showed if phone did have bond gop to the chateau ahead of the widow because we seem standing on the outdoor balcony of the church watching the widow scenes lavar and then drives off. Actually you can check out more on the lincoln continental stretch limo youtube channel. The bhandara unlocked episode. Three whereby i look at these elegant vehicle in more detail very cool channel. Check it out. It's cool absolutely. Yeah so in reality. The chapel was built just east of the east wing of the real chateau. The east wing no longer exists but the west wing is still there and so the chapel now is free standing so in real life. It's basically right there. It's right on the ground. It's the next door to where they're going but in the movie it seems like at some distance off again to limit their driving and so on and so we're going to run with that but still how did band beat the widow to the chateau. Well she took the car you walk down the stairs from the balcony just cut across the lawn or maybe she stopped at mcdonalds or something on the back. Well this too will address in a minute. Yeah okay so we bonded an upstairs room sated calmly in a wingback chair. As the we don't walks in unlocks the door behind. This is a great set. This is supposed to be an ultra tau. And he's appointed logged are really like the. Why did this. Real the day towns on the doors tapestry will meet really well done by ken adam and he's tape yet again. Yeah i love your doors. The fireplace everything. It looks fantastic and bond confronts. The widow expressing his condolences. Then he ponant jason. And that's we realize the way always really jack law and very good fight. Ensues have been eventually bone gates the bedrooms and strangles re the fireplace poker nice again from one of our posts on facebook about this upcoming podcasts. We have another. I pointed out by steven saltzman. He says huge risks involved financially and technically in the movies talking about in thunderball this is a massive undertaking for thunderball with the underwater scenes breaking new grounds both in terms of direction and camera technology. And so on. A lot of i. And i think he was talking about that in terms of costs and production costs and also the first punt to feature at cross dresser brandishing steal poker. Actually it's bob simmons in drag. That's true. I never thought of it that way. But yeah okay. This is the first bond movie with a guy in drag. Okay that's you say financially and technically just the cross dresser part or no no they'll show chatto and there was a huge financial liability if they met the whole movie. And why would he know something about that. Well this comment was sent to us by steven. Saltzman you may have heard that last. Name saltzman harry saltzman. This harry saltzman son talking us. Yeah of course. Harry was the co producer along with albert cubby broccoli of the first nine e- and production james bond movies including thunderball so harry saltzman also produced. The harry palmer movie starring michael caine the hip file funeral in berlin billion dollar brain. And we've talked with stephen on the phone and he's doing something very cool actually by the way right. Now with the irs file. He's co producing a series made for television through. It starring peaky blinders. Stark joe cole. Yeah we'll be talking with stephen about this later and we'll do a podcast about it with him so that's pretty cool. I thought i thought coz really great as john. Shelby in peaky blinders. So i think it'll be really cool to see him in this role. Because it'll be a a little bit different gambit. I will i bet he plays differently than michael candidate. So it'll be really cool to see how that gets done. It looked cool getting some good press at it too. So it's going to be fun. That makes sense. Yeah all right back to the fight. This kind of gets me for gorgeous. Chateau impeccably furnish the furniture during the fight seems to break and fall apart quite easily like cheap stuff. god everything is smashing into pieces. You bump into a chair bam of table anyway. That that got me was like okay. I i liked the production value of it. But okay bomb wants to kill var. We know that he was on the balcony. Telling the french connection is french connection. That disappointed didn't do now. He has the chance. So what does he do. It gets up from the chair. Punches boo var. Why don't you do that. And then shoot 'em bloom bam. You're never ever just shoot somebody. No he's gonna get into a fistfight with the guy. Fistfights can end up badly. You don't know jack move do anyway again. This is bob simmons as seen self and pointed out doing the stunts. And being mrs and now jacques lavar but yeah i. I loved this fight. dan. I mean bob simmons. He always fights well bonds double in from russia with love and that fight scene on the train. I just i just love the way. That guy does is fighting again. I'm going to be controversial. Both now thunderbolt least favorite of sharia. But i still like it. Still due to the inconsistent use of sped up footage ended time slowest script. The fight for me isn't as impactful as the lift highlighting diamonds are forever from nineteen zero yuan. Just feels more brutal for me. You're right the one in diamonds is brutal. This one gets a little brutal when he strangling him with the poker the fireplace poker but other than that. It's just a fight but you've also got more room to work with in this scene. Where in the in the lift. It's a very confined space so it is going to be pretty brutal. He can't you couldn't do all the flipping and stuff guys have to do it in this fight inside the lift and the fight includes lavar picking up a fireplace poker as we mentioned before the band eventually strangled them with it but he he's hitting bond with it a couple of times and one of the times he hits them across the back waiting from russia with love we see tony failing around bonds back into the skull that she knew he had on his lower left back several inches long and sylvia trench mentions in the boat in the beginning but from russia of ninety. Sixty three unstoppable is nine hundred sixty five and even with the books by fleming from russia with love was thirsty in nineteen fifty seven and then thunderball in nineteen sixty. One couldn't find a reference to a scar on the back only on the cheek in the book. Sal this is not mentioned again in any of the other bond movies went out. I don't think so. i don't remember it. And then lighting thunderball when he's in trouble in. Spa getting rehabilitated. The therapies nowadays bruise on his back. Probably five to six inches long. Run the right side of his back. This is a fireplace poker for shore. Nice connection the movie bruise full poker then the hands of a widow. I'm surprised at of sought to just the type for widow up this one. He didn't like me at all. I think there's a difference between the bruise on the back and a scar. Because there's nothing that patricia. Fearing says about a scar. She just comments on the bruce. Yeah that's true too. Yeah kind of interesting that there. She didn't comment about a scar. That was there to movies ago. So bond strangles to death with a fireplace poker as he finally gets his wish to kill var to get his revenge on the two colleagues of bond that var murdered Bond doing a revenge killing. He seems to like revenge killings in licensed to kill when he goes after sanchez. I've always assumed the dropping of the bald man with the white cat and for your eyes only was bond killing blofeld for revenge for tracy's death from although it was actually kilger so blofeld didn't fire the gun. But he was driving the one that surprised me was the quantum of solace where he kill use of at the end as revenge for vesper to like them and get out of there but now he didn't do it all right back to thunderball bond needs to make a quick exit as he hears others approaching on the other side of the door where are walked in now. They obviously hear the commotion from the fight and all the cheap furniture breaking. Okay wait a second. That's the second time you said that about the cheap furniture no cheap furniture here except all the stuff that smashing into pieces. Yeah but it's just old and brutal. Yeah right things them anyway. The point is she locked the door if you recall when she came in for some reason she he var when she came into the room locked the door. Maybe she wanted privacy. He wanted privacy but now they can't get in quickly because the doors lock. That's the point of this is like okay. Wow they gotta smash through the door but typical bond as we will see this later in this very same movie here. He has details on his exit. Takes flowers out of a vase or check might be vase and tosses them although it's cheap may be a vase and tosses them on vars body. The point is this is bond is trying to get the hell out of there. The door is being hit from the outside. Remember smashing the door down because it's locked as we said who've ours guys will be in the room any second and because bond stops and throws the flowers on move our who've ours guys get in the room just in time to see bond exiting through a door which they would not have seen if bond weren't so bold they'd be looking around for a few seconds like we're the l. is it. Where's this guy. Where did he go. No no they see him going out that door so they can go chase them immediately. So just makes it more excited. He's just wait. A minute are no. That's that's it. And it's bond cocky son of a gun let the henchman be available for the next part of the scene. They don't seem go off. They might not have gone out to the balcony for the next. But this is the scene in the movie a spy. He's a spy for crying out loud. You don't do this kind of crap. Bond escapes on his rocket belt. Yeah we'll talk about that. Goons get off five shots at. Fortunately they all missed into us. Just shoot him. Yeah most of the people that shoot bond can't k- the damn target. So so they get five shots off adam which they would not have gotten off. Adam had not thrown the flowers by the way They missed and he would have been killed there for sure. Boom one hit bam. You're done because now he's up in the air and a frigging rocket belt. Now you hit them with a bullet he can't control it bam he's dead anyway whether it's the ground or dice from the bullet. I remember when i went and shot that handgun. How hard it was to hit something. I can't trying to shoot something. Movie with moving with a handgun would be pretty difficult. I would think would be bands. Pretty good at it though. Let's back you talked about the flowers. He tossed var and they could have been a foreshadowing of bonds own funeral. Now dan you just said rocket belt and that was a good choice of words. This is often referred to as a jet pack. But it's not a jet pack. What he flies. Is the bell rocket belt. Okay i'm gonna get a little technical here. The rocket belt works off a chemical reaction. Hydrogen peroxide and nitrogen reacting was silver results in steam oxygen blasting out to create the thrust k. Important part here. Is that the difference between a jet and rocket is that the jet uses atmosphere oxygen burn fuel and thus they have two openings at minimum to operate wanted to take in oxygen the other for thrust or exhaust rockets are self contained in only the openings for thrust or exhaust so there you go of course you knew that right. Tom was look at out. Of course it's not. Sean connery flying the rocket belt. It's a real device. Then they brought in at the time there were only two guys who could fly it and they brought in one of the guys bill suitor. He flies the rocket belt off the balcony. And we see bond with the two guys chasing bond stops and puts on the helmet. Okay yeah really okay. Their safety and their safety bullets will be flying at you. Virtually any second. And you stop indiana helmet to protect you from injury in case you buy crash. Ot iraq putting a rocket belt would put which iraq built. I mean yeah you'd wanna put it out but they're going to be killing it with bullets any second year. Take your chance. I would take my chances like getting out of here by well. The producers want to bill to to just fly the thing with the helmet put sutra insisted on wearing the helmet therefore they have to show bond wearing a helmet. They actually had to fill the same with bond on the helmet lighter as far as we can tell interesting late in the uk back in september of last j. j. n. s. s great north rambling surveys and gravity. Industries tested a jet pack full paramedics to us to reach those injured in mountainous terrain. Andy morrison of the. Is said that it's the biggest advantage crazy speed. Might have taken a few hours. Could have teiken meetings a matter of life or death. Wow i actually just read an article this military website. That was talking about how they're looking to use. These things are working with the contractor to develop these things they say it can go two hundred miles an hour but it can only go for like ten minutes. Yeah you can cover thirty miles in that tiny. So if you've got a if you've got to bring some specialist onto site or get somebody out you've got a really interesting use of this thing and when they do that i'm gonna instantly think of thunderball and i'm gonna think about how much i want. One of these toys. I think the thunderball one. The real one could only go for like thirty seconds or something. Yeah yeah so now. I love when flies this thing. And then he comes down the amount of dirt that gets kicked up when he lands the normally pristine db five. Got this layer of dust on it from this from this landing gear but the passenger window was open so the interior of the car would have also been covered with dirt. A little dust on their clothes deal dusty already sturdy. He's been in a fight. Who cares. there's another suit. Five looks pretty. Clean again seems just seems. Inconsistent cleaned up a little bit now. Did you ever wonder we are with continuity and the bunch homes again. Yes not a big thing now. Did you ever wonder why the rocket built is sitting on the bill and he just waiting for bond to escape anybody out. There wonder that we did too. And here's what we think is the answer remember. We said earlier that bond said to his french connection. Come on yes. Well you told us it was important to important in. Here's why bond beat the widow to the chateau because he flew his rocket belt to the chateau much faster than a car. He can fly the crow flies and it would have been a very short distance across the property of the chateau bam. He's there that they would have seen them in the maybe on the other side of the chateau although trees you would think you know okay. Maybe you could see it but here it. But they didn't and who's waiting for bonn when he escaped with the aston martin. Yeah is french contact. And there she is so she was in on the whole rocket belt thing from the beginning so there you have it and then say you just said a second ago that the thing could go like for thirty seconds well. We refilled it. Well he was In the movie. We don't know that in the movie. We don't know that in real life it could go. I think for about thirty seconds so in the movie we have to have the willing suspension of disbelief. Which sometimes you have to have with a bond movie. I don't know that's true. Now steven jay rubin who is the author of the james bond movie encyclopaedia and we did a podcast on him with that and he's a contributor to our group on facebook. He reminded us that. Rose alba portrayed. Madam move our and the japanese actress beat suco played bonds. French liaison there. You go lows limousine pulled out after the funeral. The debate fire is parked next to some of the cost. But then i have to ask what d- do with these hats and jackie that he had on on the balcony during funeral hopped onto a jetpack. What happened to his head. First of all. I won a narrow screen version. Which if you look some of the youtube clips of this you can't see the db five parked off on the right. You look at the white screen version of this. The see that and secondly his hat and coat. Hey what the hell. This is easy to get rid of especially since knew that has plans. Were to fly the rocket belt to and from chatto. He gave them to his french connection or them out. What does he get about. How how did he know he need that. He wasn't certain approve. Our wasn't dead until he saw mubarak into limousine. I mean remember. He was at what he thought was bars. Funeral was making sure was. And then he sees that it's lavar instead of the widow getting into the limo. Yeah so he had to make a decision then to go to the chatto. So how would he have been prepared for that well because he had the rocket built in his trunk at noel just managed to be without one. He said so of the car but the car. The car's hat and jacket into got the rocket belt on put. The rocket flew across the shanto and still beat the car. That drove a half. This is the problem with with five being parked in front now and again. I kale sign up. Its new is new oil Techniques with you immolated He's going to need something like this exactly accused with stuff like that kind of knows. Embalming being prepared may have hidden the rocket built in the back of the chapel outside. Who knows we don't know for sure. But he said come on to her to the french connection and she was part of this so all right back to his escape they quickly throw the rocket belt in the aston martin. How would that have been if he had just flown. The just lands and immediately takes the things to the boot. Very careful craft. I'm sure very careful where he grabbed that thing. Yeah and now. The top of this boot looks like it has very light layer of dirt very evenly distributed on you remember. I said catholic lawyer so if you look at the top of the boot it does look like there's a light layer of dirt dispersed on dirt on it for sure it's not unilaterally distributed. Well now when he lands it is. I can't see that. I didn't see that part now. The top the boot looks like it has just a very light layer of dirt. And as i said before evenly distributed across the car including the top of the boot and just vars henchman are about to open fire on them from the ground level as they ran after them out of the chateau the db. Five's rear shield comes up. The back of the cars dirt changes. It looks almost rusty. It's blotchy yeah. Then isn't evenly distributed at all and it wasn't just the act of the shield coming up. Something changed between the one take and this next week. All right then you see bond. He fires out water at a tremendous velocity enough to knock down all three guys in pursuit. Now there's four things. I want to point out about the water. Time asked in another podcast. Where can the aston martin store. All that water could see shooting some water but not that much and water we got. How fundamentally a water hoses being fired at you. So it's pretty easy to step. Aside knows firing in one spot step aside. You won't get knocked over by it or tumble and roll and and avoid it. No not these guys. They all get knocked down by the water. That's my second point. Third point is why. Waste time with the water. If you're bond because you can cue gave you a cool toy you've got to use it. Proof yield is up drive away. Get the hell out of there. You're waiting for water. But the last point on the water cannon shooting outta the martin. It answers our last question. This is a brilliant transition to the title sequence and a foreshadowing of what thunder balls dominant theme is water. It's all about water in this scene magnificently. Alerts us to what we are about to see as one of the main themes in the movie. Water water everywhere from swimming pools with sharks. The nato aircraft underwater the frogman underwater caves secret underwater doors on boats in more. It all starts right here. Brilliant there really is we post a lot in bonn facebook groups and we posted about this episode coming up and ask for some input so aden narain one of the members in one of the groups said i love. Bonds pre title sequence especially how smoothly transitions into the title sequence. And they're all good. But i'd say it's between thunderball and goldfinger for connery's pre title sequences. We love them both. There's great he's right now. The last shot. He's water splashing up against the camera lens as it moves to a beautiful silhouettes woman. Underwater bubbles rising the thunderball title song. Client tom jones. Out thunderbolt to the title sequence. Love it here. I think it's the first time they used nudes in the Touch sacred to the us less and less close as they moved forward marez bender the titles for dr no and there's some silhouettes of closed dancers then robert brown. John took up the title sequences for both from russia with love and goldfinger in from russia with love the images are projected over scantily clad. Woman goldfinger was the first title sequence to superimpose over gold painted model. Although the model was wearing a bikini or lebron's panties or something like that. Yeah so in. Thunderball marie spender. Returned and added the nude silhouettes now on her majesty's secret service brought out more silhouetted nipples over time. The silhouettes had more light. Cast on them leaving a little less to the imagination. Yes binda film. Ninety two million black and white and then added collaborative use of optics for affect. Yeah this was a fun discussion. That was fun. Decoding some of the scenes in the pre title sequence thunderball that wraps up our coverage of the pre title sequence. Thanks for listening.

Spy Movie News - June 1 2021: Amazon/MGM, Broccoli, Bond & Marvel More!

"Here's our spy movie news for june. I twenty twenty one. Hot industry. News amazon gobbles up. Mgm barbara broccoli speaks out. James bond in marvel lack widow operation mincemeat schwarzenegger spy mark strong and the kingsman franchise face off and more. Hi this is. Dan sylvestry with spy movie navigator dot com and are cracking the code of spy movies. Show let's go. Here's some big industry. News amazon buys mgm for eight point. Four five billion dollars although it was anticipated amazon bought mgm for eight point. Four or five billion dollars on may twenty sixth. This is the first tech company to buy a studio however it doesn't appear to be about making content but rather about getting access to the mgm. Catalog amazon needs content to continue to lure amazon prime customers. This acquisition buys them. A lot of content including james bond amazon had been the leader in the streaming game as they launched prime in two thousand and five well ahead of most of their competitors now. The streaming industry has caught up an article on cnbc. Dot com talked about the antitrust regulators. Being likely to approve this deal. However there could be roadblock says. The district of columbia just sued amazon on antitrust grounds. The article believes it will be approved because they aren't leaders in this content space and there is a lot of competition plus they mentioned. That amazon doesn't have a lot of new things to acquire without antitrust concerns. What concerns us here at spy. Movie navigator is jeff bezos. Yes he stepping down as ceo in july but he will be executive chairman of the board. Will he allow james bond movies to be made. That will likely look better in the theater on a big screen than in a home theater or mobile device. Bond is designed to be big. That's not where amazon has historically played might bazo get rid of theatrical releases. Totally for mgm's movies. These are just some of the concerns. We have in another article. This time on variety dot com. James bond producer. Barbara broccoli and michael g wilson say quote. We are committed to continuing to make james bond films for the worldwide theatrical audience unquote. That article says that no time to die is still on track for the october eighth. Release date we need to remember that. Barbara michael heff final say on everything from the film's marketing and distribution plans to the actor who plays james bond. This was part of the deal when cubby broccoli made the initial deal with mgm for financing and distribution rights. Okay they have a bit of fun with this why we're concerned about amazon buying. Mgm idea is it just us but does jeff bezos. Remind us of a cross between blofeld and elliot carver from the james bond movies. He's smart rich manipulative. Wants to control everything. Maybe he's a bit of a megalomaniac. Getting here like telly savalas. Donald pleasants is blow fell. He's bald elliot carver. He owns a newspaper the washington post. So you can control. Some of the news likes of alice's blofeld. He can control what people eat in some regards. The whole foods makes us go You could read about the acquisition on cnbc dot com and you could look for the variety dot com article to us members of congress push-back on amazon. Mgm deal. Okay you know this is going to be somehow political well as you might imagine. Us politicians can't keep their hands off corporations and anything that gets them in the news Trying to fight for the little guy will be taken advantage of democrat. Us senator amy. Klobuchar is pushing for a department of justice investigation into the amazon. Mgm deal she says we have several quotes from her quote. this is a major acquisition. That has the potential to impact millions of consumers another quote. The department of justice must conduct a thorough investigation to ensure that this deal won't risk harming competition and her last boat. This is also a reminder of why we need to fund our antitrust agencies so that they can take on investigations of multi billion dollar deals. This appears to be a bipartisan topic. As republican us rep. Josh hawley said this sale should not go through. Amazon is already a monopoly platform that owns e commerce shipping groceries and the cloud. They shouldn't be permitted to buy anything else period. You can read all about it. And variety dot com are outdated cova guidelines hurting. Hollywood william earl pens and interesting article about the cost of testing for covid. Union agreements and advances in technology are coming to ahead. The high cost of covid safety measures is hurting movie prophets. It was way back in september. Twenty twenty that. The basic agreement with the big unions was signed a lot of progress since then intesting should lower costs however the agreements from september are getting in the way.

The article not even with bonds forty six year head. Start by the end of this year. Mc you will have released more movies. Twenty-seven than bond has an almost sixty years. The article talks about releasing more bond movies more frequently. One of the big hindrances. There is the possibility of bond overload for the viewer the by doctor and the writers.

No Mr. Bond, I Expect You In Court

"The rights to certain characters and stories can be a funny thing in the industry. Let's say for example that you wanted to make your own for a lot of homes movie and release it for sale. Put it in the theater to get it on digital. Make a buck. This is something that you can absolutely do without any worry about some companies suing you for infringing on their IEP or intellectual property. That's because Sherlock Holmes is in the public domain and anyone can use that character for free. There's a lot of characters in the public domain actually aside from Sherlock Holmes Dracula Frankenstein Allison Wonderland Zorro and Robin Hood are are all public domain characters. This is one reason why you see those characters popping up in different versions back in theaters on television every so often now if you wanted to make your own spider man Batman John Wick or say Captain Jack Sparrow movie and released that for sale now that would be a different story. Those guys are all copyrighted and each copyright comfort. Its own lawsuit. Should you decide to try to make a buck off. This is probably not news to you but there is one character whose history includes much disputed heavily litigated copyright and even lead to a rival movie being released the same year as the genuine article so to speak and that character is James Bond and that disputed often litigated copyright is all thanks to one man who some bond fans might think of as 007-style True Arch Villain Kevin Glory and today eight. We're taking a look at the convoluted story of Kevin McClary in an episode that we're calling no Mr Bond. I expect you in court. Welcome welcome to the industry. At the time of this podcast outcast. There are twenty four official James Bond Movies out there with the twenty fifth on the way in the year twenty twenty. It's the one franchise that never seems to end and wealth.

He's just a shadowy figure in the second bond film from Russia with love pulling the strings. You don't even get a good look at the gop you you can finally see him up front and center in you only live twice here. He has that signature look of a bald head facial scar and seemingly always sitting in a chair petting heading a white cat that whole doctor evil look the next bond pictures are also blofeld heavy on Her Majesty's Secret Service with George Lazenby as bond and in connery's final bond picture diamonds are forever and after that he was just gone James Bond of course would return he always this does but blofeld was nowhere to be found as a series moved into the nineteen seventies with Roger Moore as bond. He wouldn't officially reappear until twenty fifteen so why did blow fell disappear. It's all because of one man Kevin McClary and one bond story in particular James Bond is in operation and what an operator he is in Ian Fleming's thunderball Ian Fleming the creator of James Bond. Everyone knows this the movies love to remind you of Ian Fleming by constantly throwing his name on the screen in every single movie and making statements like this Roger Moore as James Bond 007 in Ian Fleming's live and let Die Fleming Rhode is I bond novel Casino Royale in Nineteen Fifty Three by mid nineteen fifty-eight Nate Fleming had written six teams bond novels and was looking to get his creation on the silver screen. There was one version of bomb had already appeared on American television but the unless said about it the better this is when Fleming gets introduced to Kevin McClary McClary had been working in the industry already for a number of years. He'd been a part of John. Houston's crew making the classic the African Queen he had also been a production assistant on around the world in eighty days and when Ian Fleming Madame Kevin McClary was writing and directing his own feature a war film called the boy in the Bridge Fleming McClary and two friends named Ivar Bryce and Ernest Cuneo all to work on James Bond screenplay over the next few months ten different scripts were written different titles were tossed around like James Bond around of the secret service and longitude seventy eight west. Eventually things got shaped up when McClure brings in experienced screenwriter named Jack Whittingham into into the fold in one thousand nine hundred fifty nine Whittingham have been writing screenplays for years at this point had over fifteen British screenwriting credits to his name Kevin and an awful lot of time for Jackson was Jack was a writer for hire so I think having had known jock before he got involved with Fleming Fleming scavenger being in the film industry actively since forty seven so he don't quite a few people he knew Jack and he wanted to to bring in a third party to just kind of get this screenplay off the ground so I haven't found that Jack. He always said that Jack was able to speak. Fleming's life that is Morgan Film Morgan Fulham. I worked for the estate of McCoy of course so I was hired after he died is kind of tidy things up for Mandy last quite a substantial archives kind of dealing with that too but I was it was a lawyer at the time so it's dealing with more kind of company law things just making traffic was going fine and then I sit up process I became a bit of an expert birth on intellectual property was involved so then I became a consultant when we did that settlement in two thousand thirteen and that settlement in two thousand thirteen thirteen that he's referring to is the one that returned blow fell to the world of James Bond but let's get back to nineteen fifty nine in November of that year. Fleming Fleming leaves to travel the world for a non fiction travel book during this Time Screenwriter Jack Whittingham completes an outline that McClary says is ready to shoot in December fifty nine Winningham Amick Lory send Ian Fleming the completed script for longitude seventy eight West Fleming receives leaves. The screenplay likes it but changed the name to thunderball then something kind of crazy happens plumbing decides to head home to Jamaica in January worry of nineteen sixty and starts working on a novel two months later in March. He's done the novel that he was working on thunderball and when thunderball the novel is released one year later in March of nineteen sixty one the only name credited on it is Ian Fleming's so what happened happened what caused Fleming two novels thunderball screenplay and essentially cut out McLaren winning. It is a story that it had to do with Kevin McClure feature the boy and the bridge that picture came out in one thousand nine fifty nine and did not do well at the box office or with critics. Fleming had wanted McClary to serve as producer on thunderball but now he was maybe starting to see Mkhori as a liability. That's one side of the story the other side of the story it is much more controversial heaven had an option to produce and Kevin had talked to talk to some golden junior in talk to another big producer. Who's named unfortunately escapes me right now? I'd he was trying to get the film done. They were going to find on this and they needed. Fleming's assignment on Fleming wouldn't give the assignment to there's all these excuses and delays and he rang down the clock and and it emerged the slamming had actually done a deal with the MTA it became a member who they became but there are big production company at the time of the day our agents at the time that they had done a deal around these James Bond Properties not unless that's why so I mean that because he was going to go ahead with another party but it wasn't to do with the boy and the bridge really. I don't think so I know the Boina Bridge didn't do huge well but it went to represented Britain to Vienna Film Festival. You know and it was never supposed to be a blockbuster. Was this RT picture the boy and the bridge was never meant to be a fake so I think that line that idea idea that side of the story is there to kind of deflect from the stuff that there may have been some shenanigans. Mr Fleming just prior to thunder of all the novel being released luck chlorine wittingham filed a lawsuit against Fleming for plagiarism and attempted to have the novel stopped. This doesn't work thunderball. The novel is released and it's it's a huge hit at the bookstores it sells out and becomes the highest selling bond novel of the time. It's also in nineteen sixty one that producers. Harry Saltzman and Cubby Broccoli Rockley come together and make a deal to start making James Bond movies. They formed two companies in order to do this one Danjaq which is basically basically the company that owns the rights to James Bond and eon productions. This is the company that will actually make the James Bond movies. The first movie they WanNa make is of course thunderball but McLaren Whittingham are still suing and through this complication eon productions ends up having to choose a different body novel to adapt tapped. They decide on doctor know eventually Jack Whittingham drops out of his lawsuit and instead becomes a witness for Kevin McClary. I think traffic goes very frustrated and very upset by the whole thing but he was a he was in the original action with Kevin so he was going to at sixty three cases. It's none but he left back case and I think he left for a couple of reasons. One was it was a hugely expensive pace to the in and I think he had a separate cause of action because Kevin effectively owned the copyright anyway because Jack was the writer for hype life you know he didn't have rights in perpetuity on that particular piece of material but he did have maybe another claim within the kind you've broader intellectual copyright on New World but if it was a different claim to have so I think it was terrible Jackson. It didn't have the time get his day in court with Fleming but his decision not to go with Kevin was one that happened much earlier he he had originally being on the hot in the same pleadings whiff cavern and then chose to leave the posted the case went to court in late one thousand nine hundred sixty three and nine days later it was settled. Kevin had one fleming paid McClary damages of thirty five thousand pounds and his court case of fifty two thousand pounds and future versions of thunderball were credited as based on a screen treatment by Kevin McClary Jack Whittingham and Ian Fleming in that order but more importantly than a credit and money. Kevin McClary won the rights to all of the different different scripts that were written during the collaboration for a better way of putting it. Kevin owned thunderball. It was his movie to make and says the character actor of Lohfeld was introduced in thunderball. He owned him to with his rights. Now Secure Kevin makes an interesting play. He initially seeks out making thunderball on his own so heaven wanted Connor cabinet known connery from way before so Kevin wanted connery to star in his thunderball without Brooklyn but each other to to Sean Connery Hunter said all I'm. I'm actually contracting for a few more films not available so Kevin was thinking well connery's conic after our time he was like the perfect James Bond or is there any other actor in the world the could compete with them to have the the Gravitas in the presence that connery has on Kevin settled on Richard Burton so Kevin went to Canada where I was doing the play and say agreed to add Richard Burton would do would play James Bond however Kevin Enrich burrowed Rhode Friends so it was re the idea of was just to put some pressure on Broccoli so that Broccoli negotiate with Kevin on that they would make make the movie together so after initially making some noise about making thunderball mclarens of signing a deal with Danjaq slash Yang beyond productions the official bond people for the rights to thunderball in nineteen sixty four okay Harry. We're at Dublin airport in. I thinks it's probably sixty four sixty five on the CO.. Kobe's come to Dublin to to meet cavern to do this. This deal on thunderbolt so they agree on the terms except Kevin wants to have defend the rights back in says ten years and covey will be says the rights back in ten years said well because I want to make my own James Bond films and ten years and he said and Cubby said nobody's going to be interested in James Vomiting Compton ten years nineteen sixty four is notable in the James Bond World first of all McClary scientists ten year deal for thunderball. The Third James Bond Movie Goldfinger was released in one thousand nine hundred sixty four and was a hit and last Ian Fleming died of a a heart attack at the age of fifty six in nineteen sixty four in nineteen eighteen sixty. Five thunderball is finished and released. It's billed as the biggest bond of them. All says it right there on the poster and Kevin gets a producing credit dr no big from Russia with love. Baguer Goldfinger. Even bigger now here comes the biggest of all under ball now James Bond doesn't everywhere. Look up look down. Look out here comes the biggest bummed at all Albert Broccoli and Arizona Present Sean Connery in thunderball produced by Kevin McCloy panavision technicolor. A united artists release undergo and thunderball is a smash hit. It's the highest grossing James Bond Film at the time. This might not seem that impressive considering there were only four movies by nineteen sixty five have however what is impressive is that adjusted for inflation thunderball is still the highest grossing James Bond Picture in the US the adjusted box the office number for two thousand eighteen listed at six hundred seventy three million dollars blofeld after just being a shadowy unnamed character makes his full debut in thunderball and would appear the next few movies. Thanks to the ten year agreement McClary had made and after the huge success of thunderball Kevin McClary kind of disappears at least from the James Bond world ten years later though Kevin Jumps back into the bomb world fully expecting to exercise his rights at this point. It's the mid nineteen seventies and Roger Moore has taken over as bond in the series and for Kevin that means that Sean Connery is now available to star in his bond movie for this Kevin Not only recruited connery to play bond but also to help help write the script along with Len Deighton a novelist who had written the Harry Palmer spy series and the movie they came up with is a variant on thunderball called warhead head. There's a few version would certainly one was that Spector had kind of become these ECO terrorists unday our disgusted ostad how the world's oceans were being destroyed so they were going to hold the rest west around some that was one story element of they were going to threaten to blow up significant structures in Manhattan the newly built a World Trade Center on the Statue of Liberty and they were going to do it by using laser guided mechanical sharks and sources of New York. Yes that's right mechanical sharks that shoot laser beams in the New York City sewer sewer system is also a bond girl with the Groan Worthy Justin loves it and fight on top of the head of the Statue of Liberty Paramount pictures on board to distribute attribute and quite honestly. I really want to see this movie so what happened or had. The greatest bond film never made so often described yeah okay so I'm not in a position to actually have access to the archives so familiar enough with what would have been. We'll be fantastic but sadly this is the kind of sequence of events so is going to make warheads breath believe power mind or going to provide financing and distribution they make an announcement in the press on these he's Fleming Estate through the trustees and you a props Jacksonian nuttier seek an injunction against Kevin that scares parliament allstate well. It's not so much dot com. I GET SCARED OF IT Steve. The insurers for the film gets nervous. I think fire mistrusted so they're beginning to get worried because they're a point. I don't know how much money money don eon made but it was significant. Hiring Plan didn't want the hassle. They didn't want to worry the trouble so they pulled out and they and having an starts negotiations with Kelly and frank wells from warner brothers and they're going to it just has put a limit on the time she Asians the time runs at the conference in agreement so Kevin polls stop field so often described as warner brothers pulled up but it was actually Kevin hold up to taking their deal. I'm not long after or put of even being slightly before that Lorrimore lorrimore make a pitch to Kevin About Doing Bong. I'm Kevin doesn't like the term that they're offering whatever so the deal stalls but the vice president of Larmar at the time was John Schwartz anzacs Workman's role and the deal was to investigate Kevin's Pied Jack's watching the Dino Motion Picture Malaria Foods Twenty five years or something that point so he had been a guy who investigated investigated the title of the Kevin. How these rights came to have and he could see that he did so. That's how we get through up but unfortunately originally started warhead. They figured that the safest route was to go as close to the thunderball script as possible because that was the least disputed CBS Chinese territory so that's why warhead got parked was that it was to actually gas failed made the decision session was to go the route of least resistance and that was to do something much closer to thunderball while Kevin Unquestionably had the rights to remake thunderball bought the warheads script veered too far away from it and that's why it was never made instead a new script that was basically a remake of thunderball was ready to go by the early nineteen nineteen eighty s all this time that warhead is being sorted out by lawyers and producers the James Bond Series keeps on going with Roger Moore as bond however bonds main villain villain Blofeld hadn't made an appearance nineteen seventy-one diamonds are forever the last one star Sean connery but when it was apparent that Kevin did have his thunderball remake remaking production the more series made an interesting move in the pre title sequence to Nineteen eighty-one for your eyes only an unnamed and only shown from behind Blofeld makes an appearance trapping bond in a helicopter he controls by remote control of course the tables are quickly turned. That's the shot over on Vince heats up his nemeses and robson down an industrial smokestack killing him sending a clear message to Kevin McClary and his thunderball remake and that message was was have fun using Blofeld. We don't need him here anyway. McClary thunderball remake was called. Never say never again a play on the fact that connery had one. He said he would never again play bond and it was set to come out in one thousand nine hundred three the same year as the next official bond picture octopussy project more originally wanted out of making octopussy. He was tired of the role and felt he was too old to play it anymore. He was right by the way producers started looking for a replacement and a couple of guys. Most is notably. James Brolin came close to getting it once never say never again with an actuality bond producers then felt they couldn't compete against Sean Connery the original double o seven with a new guy coming up as bond so Roger Moore once again strapped on the Tuxedo go to war once 1983 eighty-three rolled around in both movies ready to roll the media dubbed it the battle of the bonds and a number of newspaper and magazine articles popped up going over both pictures both with more and connery were constantly being asked about the other Ad Nauseam. Here's part four part piece. The today show did on both films well. I don't know whether you're a fan of Sean Connery Andrea Roger Moore but you're going to have the choice this summer to pick either one because since last fall more an connery have been shooting new James Bond movies around the world at one point both both were filming in London where I caught up with does more no. There are two sevens at work. Would you like to tell you about the got to get started up there. Talk about that and that's amazing well. It's not only amazing. It's amusing because the competition is none other than Sean connery returning as James Bond in never say never again. Are you amused by the fact that at this point you and Roger are shooting bond films at Simultaneously Yeah. I bumped into him. Actually he was staying being in the Arlington House. In London with well director is cuts non bump into Joni streets and we talked and it was just it just started and conversations very brief news really son and he said what are you guys going off to location and I remember it was somewhere some dreadful town just on the outskirts of London and he said what are you going inside. The south of France Advan is said then going and and I said I'm going to Nassau Bahamas sitting in India then well. That's nice while I'll see you back in London. Are you surprised to find yourself back here. Meaning playing James Bond Yes i. I am in some ways. I mean having said you know never again as it was when I was approached by Kevin maclaurin he had the rights. After ten years to remake thunderball ended all the lawyers come out of the woodwork and the legal ramifications became far too complex. I've had enough of these last few years that I chose not to proceed and out of the Blue Jack. Schwartzman approached me with a view to doing this. One and I said well. D- do conditions one is that it is totally clean and I have no more dealings as lawyers is it well though he happens to be a lawyer and I have total indemnification from yourself and he provided both so these clauses and we are the producers of both bond films had the good sense to keep them away from each other on the calendar. Roger Moore and octopussy would open. I on June Sixth Sean Connery in never say never again wouldn't hit the until October seven and it shakes out like this never say never again. Dan scored the higher opening weekend ten point nine million dollars versus eight point nine for Octopussy however overall box office never say never again would lag behind in the US octopussy one out with sixty seven million versus fifty five million and worldwide it was victor with one hundred and eighty seven million to never say they never against one hundred sixty put make no mistake both pictures were highly successful and even though it was a hit never say never again and did not spawn a new bond series with Sean connery or with anyone else for that matter and for the rest of the nineteen eighty s Kevin Glory wasn't out really looking to do that all that would change the nineties though Kevin's last go round with James Bond would look like this in one thousand nine hundred ninety six one year after Pierce Brosnan in made his debut as bond in Goldeneye. Kevin decided to announce that he would be making warhead two thousand. AD basically another other remake of thunderball and once again he had a former James Bond star this time around it was Timothy Dalton in one thousand nine hundred seven Kevin entered a deal with Sony to to not only make the new version of warhead but an entire James Bond franchise this did not go over well at Danjaq which was at the time working with with MGM and they quickly filed the twenty five million dollar lawsuit to stop Sony from going forward. Sony then countered with the claim that Kevin McClary was the CO author of the cinematic James Bond and was thus owed fees from mgm and Danjaq at some point. Kevin would even claim the sixty eight year old sean connery would be coming back in his version of James Bond. This played out in the trades for a couple of years until in nineteen ninety nine Sony. MGM AND GM settled MGM would pay Sony five million dollars to settle the lawsuit and ten million dollars to not make any James Bond movies MGM would also get the rights lights to Casino Royale. Bond novelty did not own the rights to previously a few years later in two thousand four Sony would end up vying mgm and thus owned the James Bond Franchise Anyway. There was no need to have Kevin McClure Ian his thunderball rights blow fell would return to the bond franchise with Spector released in two thousand fifteen fifteen and I wondered what Kevin might have thought of this version of blow fell that came about James Bond film which I think he would read for. We got on very well with 'cause. I thought it was appalling. Given Heavens get Kevin always thought lowveld should never have been seen phones back to the original thunderball Tahseen and her petting the cat he was always wanted to keep him. I'm very very mysterious and they they just they didn't do that one very well and recently again so he would have been appalled. This is Jack Elam. Jack is an old drinking buddy that Kevin met in the eighties was currently running a twitter account in Kevin's name so of course the first question. I had to ask him was. How is it that you're running A? Kevin McClary twitter account you know I because he'd want me to I mean he never discussed twin around but but he was always one for like making sure a truth got out and so I I I set it up right after Spector. I didn't like Spector I knew was not the specter of the Kevin would have liked the reason the reason for that. I would have thought Kevin would have liked to have some some say back for and it was funny his son Bram well you know the MTV and Said who you to run this. I said Abrahama track. I met you in How do you Paki latkes and we were talking about F. One and so forth he goes. I I know who you are. Do you mind if I keep doing it because it. It didn't give me a ringing endorsement when Jack I met Kevin in a pub over thirty years ago. He quickly learned about his connection to double o seven. I mean he tells you very quick the number one and he such storyteller that he and trawls you. I mean the best Regalia I ever came across he he would like to be known as Shannon key which is an old. Irish folklore verbal historian and Storyteller Kevin was full of stories especially about working working in the movies he would talk about John. Huston John Huston set of African clean and he did they as soon as they arrived. He got into his head. One of the bull tusked elephant tusks have a habit went and bought the biggest elephant gun and they went out hunting hunting and he says they were out for weeks and he says John Hughes you can't the porters to to beat the bushes literally elite one or two of the Puertas died doing that and of course Liz Taylor how you introduce Elizabeth Taylor to Richard Burton and I really and subsequently I found out I think he dated Taylor and anyway he told the story once and then I was going he was staying at John Huston's house in Galway often Ryan. I would go up on weekends me and some friends and we'd hang out. She showed me he mounted the letter from this with Taylor Saint. Thank you Kevin Trench using me to that lovely fellow richer at a party and yes Kevin McClary introduced Liz Taylor Richard Burton. I know I know after speaking with Jack Listening to historians. It wasn't a surprise to find out that Kevin was quite a character. I always considered him a bit like doctor who because he always had an assistant and this poor core ever suffering the system would be doing filing upon upon filing and I I don't know I've known about ten of his assistants over the two years and they were you'll make Kohl's do this. Kevin would like you to come along where there's party to comment so yeah he was a force of Nature Jack. Jack also told me about a charity event that Kevin held in the nineteen seventies called circe Asia which featured Eric Clapton Burgess Meredith Shirley maclaine and of course Sean Connery as circus files. John Huston was the ringmaster. Look it up. It's crazy. He also told me about his fascination with tech. You see it in the James. Bond film I was always I said that was a cool aqua lung on us in Thunderball and and he had keys and radar detector radiation detectors and the Raskin so he had he always had the latest garrick. I mean he had the first I hard disk. I ever saw he bought twenty megabyte hard disk for some insane amount of money like fifteen hundred Irish Irish punts at the time so he was a guy just here and that's how we we loved tech which does fit right in with James Bond and his gadgets Kevin even died in two thousand six and die hard fans who likely know everything consider this podcast already they've you. Kevin not blow felt as James Bond's taste constantly suing trying to make his own version of a character. He didn't really create that's not everyone's view but we became a fast friends and nobody's drinking by these and he he was always very warm. Great Guide and I miss them a lot. We're GONNA fill. 'em Our mcquarry historian who helped settle the thunderball writes from. Kevin's estate back in two thousand thirteen has a different view of Kevin's complicated legacy the way I see it as so. I'm not sure if you were but the first film that Broccoli's we're going to wanted to produce was under doc. I script connery. Got Was Thunderbolt. Thunderball was template for all the bond films. Don't forget that the Kevin Kevin's sounds idea was that this character needed to be rewritten just for the screen and they needed a vehicle that the vehicle was thunderball so thunderball under bowl is the daddy of the James Bond. It's not the first one but it was supposed to be the first one eight under sane writer who Richard May who wrote wrote this script Broccoli's would font for juice sorry Brooklyn Enforcement Echoes back then towards Musto so involved that were supposed to produce at the time had been written by Richard May and then when they realized they didn't have to write the fewest with the same writer to ripe doctor knows so he had all of them material had gone to create this new vehicle the visual cinematic James Bond thunderball so I would say that if if thunderball didn't happen thunderball wasn't written a Fleming Kevin on and Jock Hutton creativeness screenplay James Bond. We know now would be very fixed. Thank you for listening to this episode of the industry. This episode was written produced and edited by me. Dan Got Special. Thanks to my guest this week.

How James Bond got his name: Summarizing effective ministry in seven words

"This is the daily. Article podcast published by the Denison Forum or culture changing Christians to receive the daily article directly to your your email inbox week day morning. Visit the daily Article Dot Com. Now here's Today's news discerned differently the trailer for no time to die. The latest James Bond movie came out yesterday. The previous movies in the franchise generated more than seven billion dollars in worldwide worldwide. Box Office sales. Have you ever wondered how the iconic spy got his name. Ian Fleming the writer of the novels that birth. The movie franchise was an Avid Bird. Bird watcher on a trip to Jamaica after World War. Two He noticed a book on birds of the West indies by an ornithologist from Philadelphia named James Bond Years. Later Fleming wrote to Mr Bond's wife. It struck me that this brief unromantic Anglo Saxon and yet very masculine name was just what I needed needed. And so a second James Bond was born however like a spy novel. There's a twist to this story. It turns out an intelligence officer named James is bond served under flemming secret elite unit that led a guerrilla war against Hitler. James Charles Bond a metalworker from Wales died in nineteen nineteen ninety-five without revealing his spy past his family suspects. That Fleming used the bird-watching James Bond to protect the identity of the real James Bond and one of the reasons I pay attention to popular movies is that their popularity reveals so much about us. Sean Connery's connery's British secret agent first appeared during the height of Cold War Paranoia and offered us the assurance in film after film that the West could defeat the Soviets hits in the decade since James Bond has taken on our most frightening enemies and save the world with his unique mixture of brash courage and technological wizardry. The westerns of the Nineteen Thirties gave a solitary heroes who inspired us during the Great Depression. The Comic Book Superhero Films of recent years. Typically make far more money overseas than they do in America highlighting the global nature of our economy and the exporting of Western culture. avengers endgame earned more than eight hundred seventeen million dollars domestically but earn more than one point nine billion dollars overseas as long as our culture needs. Heroes Hollywood will supply them at least the fictional kind yesterday. We discussed the existential crisis facing our the world and God's call to demonstrate his love to hurting people today we'll explore a real world strategy to do just that the key is to find a need and meet it with the love of Christ the greater the need the greater the opportunity. The first Christmas came in a day when much of the world was governed by one of the most heretical oppressive regimes. The world had ever seen and yet that was the dark moment out of all dark moments across all of human history when God chose to to send his son into our world. Frederick Beekman says of Christmas God visited us. The world has never been quite the same sense it is still a very dark mark world in some ways darker than ever before but the darkness is different because he keeps getting born into it the threat of Holocaust the threat of poisoning joining the earth and sea and air the threat of our own deaths. The broken marriage the child in pain. The lost chance anyone who has ever known him. mm-hmm has known him perhaps better in the dark than anywhere else because it is in the dark where he seems to visit most often The Birth of Christ highlights the difference between Christianity and the world religions the latter offers US various ways to climb up to God or the gods us or whatever they believe to be our ultimate destiny. Buddhists strive to follow the four noble truths and the noble eightfold path Muslims observe of the five pillars of Islam. Hindus seek to advance through multiple reincarnations by practicing aesthetic rituals in good deeds. Observant Jews work to keep their six hundred and thirteen laws at Christmas. By contrast God climbed down to us. Jesus birth to lowly peasants in a lowly stable table prefigured his ministry to come for instance touching lepers going to demoniac initiating relationships with Samaritans Gentiles and choosing to die for our sins early. Christians followed his lead rescuing abandoned babies from trash heaps and ransoming slaves and prostitutes Medieval Christians preserved literacy founded universities and built hospitals. Christians in recent centuries have worked to abolish slavery champion civil well rights and took the compassion of Christ to some of the darkest corners of the world. I believe God wants us to see. The problems of our day is our responsibility since we are the only salt and light in a decaying dark world. It is our job to take the transforming light of Christ to those who need it. Most effective ministry three can be summarized in seven. Words meet felt needs to meet spiritual needs help hurting people to show them. God's love in our compassion see their problems as spiritual opportunities and remember that the darker the room the more powerful the light and explaining his desire to defend mere Christianity rather than engage in matters of academic dispute Cs Lewis stated that part of the line. where I thought I could serve? Best was also the part that seemed to be thinnest I and to it. I naturally went. Where in the line will you serve today. Would you consider sharing during this podcast with a friend family member or CO worker in order to help build community of culture changing Christians. Thank you for listening to the daily.

Trevor Noah Reconsiders Idris Elba as James bond

"And when i found out that daniel craig no longer wanted to be james bond i was. I was heartbroken until i heard that at the top of the list. The potential replacements was a man by the name idris. Elba lost my mind. I lost my. You can hear the ladies. I mean Yeah yeah and that's what james bond needs a ladies man and a man's man and has that strong charming got that quite thing or originate over you know you. You seem playing the dapper spot and soon as it was announced. Everyone is excited. Everyone is excited. Until the comments section of the internet came interest albuque- james bond and the comments section was. Actually it was elbow. Could not play james bond would like why like because because of the shape of his head what you say. What are you saying. No because because what because he's black. James bond cannot be played by a black man and as soon as they said the internet exploded right sir and immediately that happened i jumped in. I don't even know what it's about half the time. I just jump in racism. And i ripped my saddle just like Expanded later. And i was in there and i was like what the hell's going on there like james bond played by interest because it is a black man and james bond his wife. Well actually james bond is a fictional character. That's what we can play anyone because it is fiction and they were like well when you think about james bond was based on a real man who was white and so he should be played by a real white man. I was like well. That just doesn't make sense because if you think about jesus was technically black member he gets played white man so i don't know what your point is because that's never stopped me from receiving marvelous things going on about. No you can't have. It is like roses in front of it. And then i winter squash and i realized that maybe just maybe. I haven't given the arguments enough thoughts because i love interest job. I want him to play bond. But if you think about. James bond often operates in places like scotland and the uk and europe. Because that's where most super villains choose to reside. I'm assuming it's what tax purposes no matter how you feel about the issue you have to admit it would be particularly difficult to be a spy when you are the only black person in how your very existence defies your. I'm not saying it's impossible. I'm just saying that would be the toughest james bond movie there was ever made. Can you imagine that scene. It was elba. james bond. Planning the fall blowing up.

For Your Ears Only 0022: Die Another Day

"I admire. Your. Luck. Mr. James Bond. Never happened the other phone who? Play is only down. She wants Mr Scandal living daylights out of. An. Welcome to another episode of for your ears only optimism vaccines ongoing James Bond. August series were counting down to no time to die the twenty fifth James Bond movie by watching every other James Bond movie I 'cause that's sort of thing we have the time for so my name is Jackie I'm joined by Jake repeal as ever Jake own. Jack. I'm doing great. How are you on doing pretty good too we're. We're. But a into some some scary stuff here though so we've got nick reached the new millennium. Point and we were closing out the end of era what an advantage would pierce Brosnan's final film at Die Another Day is final bond film. He didn't die at the end of this he's still works in other movies. And he didn't die but he certainly killed the franchise for a few years. There was definitely touching gopher low while. This is actually my first time ever watching this film I'd never seen this before my God s the reviews, put me off at the time or something, and so who this is the first film I saw in the theaters that was on related. Wow I can tell you eighteen years does not do this filming neighbors Everybody strapping. This is GonNa be a loopy episode I can feel it. You're okay. Well, yeah. So Another day is a it's it's darts in in. Well Korea. Hold on okay. We gotta start first of all the gun barrel. The white the. I. For the first time, ever a giant we at the retreat to the gun barrel and giant CGI bullet flies at the camera. Shattered some glass break Cisco and this was never released in three D if you're gonNA do now crap like that. At least Leach of a three D. or something this is suggested by are the film's Director Lead Tamahori who? I don't know. Yeah News I believe he had a New Zealand film that was very big and. Once we're. which I I have not seen in many many years. But I remember very good film So yeah, I mean no, no harm but that may bond is not his speed now. It's The. Problem is that this is so bond films are a lot of them. You know they kind of set the standard for a lot of films that we see today certainly the first blockbusters but then after a while a lot of bond films began aping. What was big at the time and I would say, this is the worst case of that. This very much putting my blue on just this last week. This looks like a movie that was shot in two thousand one in released in two, thousand and two. This the color grading. The use of speed ramping and slow motion. The suit, the sports in this movie this movie is a Bat Shit Insane. All, like you talk with the speed ramping that alteration speeches reminds me like I remember watching thirteen ghosts all all those like late nineties early, its horror movies that you a headache early. Why is this happening and to find it in the bond franchise is just Thankfully I think it's this is an isolated. They'd like nip this one of the ball Roy. nope. No more. So this. Yeah, the IT. All the films you know even though this is released decades after some like it man with the Golden Gun, which was a response to like the Kung Fu films of the time. This is the film more like relative to what it looks like. It's age. The worst I would say is the probably the ugliest looking bond film. I don't know if I can think of one that is a bit just in terms of style and lighting even just set lighting is. Nothing is quite as Garish as this. I think this wants the color grading. I believe was done digitally anyways around that time were every movie started looking like us because ours? Yeah it's. It's yeah. This basically, you know the advent of digital editing basically everything you could do to film stock. It was now filter you could turn on in a setting on your computer but Yeah. So. We started to get into it why stop now? Film Opens With the Bond Surfing in North Korea. That's how you access North Korea traditionally on the surfboards, but a surfboard full of gadgets with adhering to nameless faceless nobody assistance who died almost instantly. Yeah. So that's that's right So He's there to stop a he's basically a hijacks the position of a diamond salesman to get to the base of one curl moon in North Korea. Who is trading the diamonds for weapons that I believe bond is just simply there to stop him One of the things that he's got is a gun that can blow up tanks or helicopters as we see the also has hovercraft. To get over minefields. Yeah. I. Love The like the Hovercrafts can navigate over minds without sending them off, which is you know. So, it's still the demilitarized zone. You'RE GONNA right into a wall for. It there's no reason for any. Sense I don't even know like haver the introducing. It sounds like they invented hall for crafts like we have this new thing you've never heard of before they. They can get over land mines hover. Obscene crafts. That they're not fame, ben in bond, Films Afar James Bond took a hovercraft in diamonds are forever take get from one island to another But anyways, bond is cover is blown immediately because the North Koreans have cell phone that can reveal his identity the henchman of this movie is Zao played by Rick Yune who's also of the fast and furious franchise they asked us fill looks quite a bit like, yeah I. I, it really looks like the shiny plastic cars in which all also feature a lot of in this movie of the fast and furious franchise. So this is probably as much as I. Enjoy some of the fast and furious movies is probably the that's probably the worst franchise for bond to look like I if he asked me how. This compares poor to those films yet, even some of the weaker of those films this is not coming out ahead. Yeah. This is the two fast two furious of the bond franchise anyways using C four that he planted in a briefcase filled with diamonds. Bond escapes Zahle gets a bunch of diamonds embedded in his face chases Curl Moon Colonel Moon. In Hovercraft, there's some fighting involving a flame thrower a lot of a bond not defeating the purpose of the hovercraft starts shooting the minds that he can see planted on top of the ground so that they can raise the explode and destroy the other have across behind him but He. Yet he incurred moon fight. Bond jumps off is saved by a bell. He says saved by the bell on Curl Moons Hovercraft careens off the side of a waterfall presumably to his death. We think he's dead and then for the first time ever baen is actually captured by the end before ses instead of escaping and he spends the next fourteen months being tortured by a North Korean officials. any thoughts on the cold open before we get to the song well, I mean. I think we've covered the we've we've covered the main issues here and Yeah It's just. I. Mean The action seeking autocraft chases is solid enough. It's not. You know it's it's it is what it is the vehicles explosions and it's bit goofy. But Soviet yeah I am well yeah. You e lead into our intro sequence, which is kind of a first. series really suffer with the Mars minders. Debt. and. Kind of the. Bras in an era toilets they're. Really Grace Down Our us all on digital ladies. Yeah. unanswered conception that just they didn't have. I don't know maybe a little bit biased but I feel like the digital they what became relatively easy to do digitally, they never made up for it with better design and so the older versions always just that little bit more intriguing and interesting even if they often posted on formula what this one try something new when I of respect them for trying something new by actually integrating story elements into it. So we did the opening credit sequence essentially through stylized graphics and stuff at depicts bonds fourteen months of torture with Scorpions for some reason. Yeah. Scorpion Venom. In and while all this is happening we hear this. Governor? Yes. See. and. Crews Body. Earth. Is. Those aside. SISTA. Store. Yeah. This is a Madonna Diana Day and Jack go go ahead and say this is the worst bond theme song ever. GonNa. Disagree with you. I don't know I mean I've talked about. Probably, not many bonds themed listen to outside of a bond fill this one. I don't know maybe a radio filler thing but like even as electric, you know it's it stands I was very harsh electronic kind of dance vibe to us, which is very unusual for the franchise up to this point, but it's not it's not even a very good song of that. Tall. You. Don't really know Madonna Madonna had some great electronic music. The same period. I don't know what happened it. These really feels like. She woke open was like Shit. I saw him to contract they they need a song on this happened it's a very world. What's the Sigmund Freud thing out? I mean I. Don't know why that's in there in the bridge where she says, Sigmund Freud analyze this analyze this I don't know why that's part of the song. Now I just was wondering maybe I was missing something but no apparent apparently not is very Strange. I don't WanNa fall for trying something new. It's a very radical departure. I. Don't think it works to It's it's jarring goodway. Yeah. It's yeah it's A. I mean. To think backing go hey, we got the grandeur of Shirley Bassey and here this is a weird Madonna pop electronic saw it's it's very jarring I I kind of like the implication that bond is being tortured by the song himself because this is for the first time ever images of the actual narrative are inserted over the bond theme titled Credits So. It's like bond is actually being tortured in. North. Korea while this song is on repeat for the fourteen months that he's imprisoned, they let that one piece of Western music. Yeah. John Elton John believes this is the worst theme tune in the franchise's history when the strangely enough though I could find out am channel four England, the TV channel ran a poll of bonds tunes, and this song was overwhelmingly the favorites song home. If people under twenty four years of age. Okay. Well, now, I'm guessing that was run around the time the film came out. So I'm guessing it was kind of Madonna boost stairs well, Dan it also earned a razzie nomination for for Madonna sure we discussed last episode. Razzi. will put down the records that that was mentioned there but yeah. This is the thing happened. Yeah. You're Medina did a bad song but yeah. So the song and she yeah, also continues bonds Gye thing which is getting a little confusing at this point. Another Day not to die live and let die tomorrow never dies. Yeah. Well, I expect you to die Mr Bond but yeah. All right. So back to the story proper. Bought his release obviously never escapes North Korean delays on the end credits roll. Yeah that's this weird. How like they? I mean that's why they had to reboot it with Daniel Craig for years later because nowhere else to go this is the only fifteen minute long James Bond Phil? Yeah. Yeah literally Now. Come on we're messing around you guys but yeah. So bond is he's not released by his own volition. He's actually being traded back to his own superiors because they've captured Zao so was a trade of the North Korean prisoner for the British prisoner and then bond is a put on a medical ship in the harbor of Hong Kong where he's being monitored am expresses disppointment with him in. For I go out of my way to defend this movie too much. I, do like after the post after the opening title sequence basically this next chunk like twenty minute chunk of the movie all the way through Cube I think is the best part of the movie. This is a this is another bond goes rogue adventure. And this is like the there's something kind of I mean bonded or Brosnan and his bond is really sort of more. He's more of a lighthearted playful bond certainly, not a Dalton. But this is kind of like the darkest we see him get because he's also is harassed grown out. He's got a thick scraggly beard. He's like he's like just being cruel and spiteful to everyone around him. He feels like he's been betrayed. So I think there's some interesting stuff in here that works the problem is they're part of what's basically moon raker to. His them yeah. Yeah definitely. Yeah. There there's some interesting elements. And comments that he should used his audience rather than being captured and he says it's ruled away. So, there's an interesting here V say as being kind of spiteful to everyone at part of that I think is a self loathing that he he failed he got captured they add to. They had to get him out but they didn't do. It's not the AMAS sentimental lifespan is purely rational decision could showers so with desire dangerous and they didn't know Oh that's right. There was a leak and they weren't sure if bond wasn't leaking the information. So right they wanted to remove them and so also there is an interesting sense of intrigue in Yeah Certain Darkness for this sequence am which will dissipate pretty quickly. End is also an interesting comment here I think that bond course quickly escapes. Be Noble people jumping overboard but. Joel's on hold on. He will. I'm I'm just curious. I'm just saying like I'm not sure if em knew he would earn. Well Alley so much that new I mean it's it's very possible kind of into that. There's despite how you know she's always reprimanding him I. think there is a secret part of 'em. That trust spawned more than anyone else. So she'll she'll she'll save face by saying you know you should not have done this. You have to follow the book you cannot do these things but at the same time, she kind of wants bond to escape and gone on mission and I think that's that's something also be explored in the Craig films but. Oh, definitely am bond at the Judi dench 'em and James Bond have very similar relationship to. Our dog which that she says she hates him but she also does a lot of Nice things for them. No. Yeah Deep Dang can't live without him. But yeah. So so Bonda escapes from the ship he beats up a few guys but to get there he fakes stops his own heart I'd forgotten that. What? Training is Dash. So twelve year old me thought that was the cool. This was the coolest movie in the world because bond is the Kinda guy who he is. So in tune with his body, he can trick a heart rate monitor into thinking that he's flat light. One. That kind of skill we were making fun of like him lasting for steering a boat around. But like honestly and snow, there's no. There's nothing about that. He just faked his own death for awhile by willing his heart stop and at that point, it's like. Well, if you could do that, maybe you could have got the north. Koreans to burry you somewhere in the eight I'd like how far does it go to see the oxygen? At this point. It is reassembles his cremated ashes. Who we selected it's such a weird thing to put in the movie and just not talk about anymore. No. Yes absolutely. Insane. Yeah. So yeah, he escaped he swims to Hong Kong from the harbor. Walks his favourite hotel we should mention that he's He's basically wearing Pajama bottoms with an open Pajama top in these looks like a homeless person without any shoes on. But, yeah he gets his his favorite suite at the hotel. And, one thing I should note that this this film was released in two thousand two. This is the fortieth anniversary, the bond series, and do they celebrate it because there's so many references and call backs to previous bond films. Especially later on, there's literally a room full of every gadget from the entire franchise, but bond is A. Catches that he's being setup in this hotel room because he throws an ashtray at a mirror in it shatters revealing a whole camera crew behind it, and if you recall from for Russia with love, one of the subplots is a sex tape those film from behind a mirror. So it's it's weird how when you think about like the the narrative, the entire bond franchise how like what? Like who is connected to what is this the same guy as connery and so yeah, there's just we're strange things like that. That I don't know what did you think of this reference or and she and the other references that also I think doesn't add is it Roger? Moore. Says he knows a really good Taylor in Hong Kong I can't remember what movie that was from. Certainly possible. Yeah. So yeah. So he goes on call in orders is Taylor Sammy his earlier? Yeah. I mean I think it's on. It certainly not within this film but certainly, not least gird the most egregious element and they have that leads spike shoe when Hugh lab and stuff which she sniffs for some reason. Again within the this is a matter of Willis. Heart. Stop who knows what drives him at this point as apartments on dead bond for the rest of the film these driven strange impulses. That's right that could have been. Like make as much sense as what actually happens. Yeah. I think the the eighteenth I believe that she pushed the production to this movie back you justice specifically hit the fourth anniversary, right? They really they really committed to the best. At it's a trying to shave that arguably the worst bond film results out of US Alya. Yeah. They went big in the worst ways possible So yeah, the the mission currently is bond basically just wants to find recapture or kills Zao Ziauddin believe he doesn't like the Dow has been freed for his own life and so bond hunts him down he's directed to Cuba He meets a contact by the name of raw wool. He gets a cool car. He gets a gun This is sort of the. This is the only time where this feels like classic bonds where he's driving the convertible through Cuba. There's a very nice grew laxed. Feel to it that I enjoy But yeah then he also happens to meet. Our bond girl jinx played by recent Oscar winner Halle Berry took a day off to go collector Oskar all while on sat here. So yeah. Performances in this. Immigrant Halle Berry is like the quintessential example of the the Oscar curse I am cat woman would follow so. Yet again, she's not a very interesting von she portrayed as very capable I-I've. Say. Like American secret agent am. Feels very by the numbers here she comes. She's of course, introducing kind of like an Ursuline Andrey style bikini variety jet call back the other callback. But yet she she's kind of she's unfortunately could into this film as kind of like a very kate will bad ass character refunding actually planning your possibly gave her own film series which I don't think would have been a great idea to be honest echo she's very thinly written. Thoughts yes. She she's God right died a fiery dash. Yeah. No, she's very capable bad ass. Kind of doing that. But she also really quite boarders legged does nothing memorable remarkable about her other than what she's? Halle Berry? Nam so I it just feels like kind of. Surf shoes property at the time puttering they're only Halle Berry she doesn't. She doesn't certainly distinguish the parts. But I'm always kind of reluctant to say she does anything wrong either because I don't think there's a lot to depart. You know I'm not yeah. I'm not really a fan of performance but I think it's it's certainly it's certainly belongs in the movie it's in it's not like it's she's not making the movie any worse yet is yet no, she's non Brian Anything down here. Yeah. So yeah. So. She in Bonn have Shag in bond tracks. Is Notable actually I didn't even think about this but from earliest. Yeah. The that this is this is the first time probably entire series we actually see on having sex bull. Yeah. Not yet this like like in finishing to because then she is they're in bed together and she pulls out a knife in like a fruit and starts carving it needing it. But. Yeah. That's a certainly certainly with the leniency of pg thirteen. Some you can. You can show more of civilians get gunned down and you can show bond having sex. The Act at Saranda moving around a little bit never think so good good for him. I knew that she had to require a couple of couple of TRIMs to get the PG thirteen on this one because obviously machine gunning down civilians is is far better for children's always than acknowledging sex. Yes. We all know her well. It well established pattern. Now who that's the world is a very good place right now who? WHO Cares about civilians. Yes. So so anyways, bond tracks downs Zao. He's in a he's in a hospital and we discover that he's undergoing like Edina gene therapy procedure to look like a German guy, and he's like his head is completely shaved. He still has all the diamonds embedded in his face, which you think would probably be the first thing you'd want to remove. If you go into surgery, they're still there I guess because they have to you know your your henchmen needs to have some sort of physical characterized. I guess what we've learned from this diamonds are now part of the cinetic level. Yes. A change the GS ill hill just naturally not anymore. Yeah that's so weird Buri. On Sept through FY, idea that kind of bills employees yeah. Authors visually realized in interesting ways. This guy's lying on tables with flashing lights. Yeah. They have everybody who's in these hospital rooms. They also have these weird led like sleep masks that they use to rest his apparently like the the they're like the gene therapy like prevents them from going to sleep so like they use these masks so that they don't go crazy but Yeah. escapes and So bonds word is bond go after this I believe he's Then he's sent to investigate a British billionaire third philanthropists by the name of Gustav Graves who is kind of like a what's the? What's The guy who? The behind Virgin Airlines spatially against Branson exactly he's inist on C. basically anytime he said like a public event he he would prefer to skydive into it is to make an appearance. Enough actually just as an aside mentioned again at a time for Richard Branson as a random cameo casino royale. Yes he does reason. Yeah. So I guess, say they're really enamored with the guy but yeah, definitely goes braves a Richard Branson kind of feel although honestly he comes off more like an eel on most type at this point. But at that was, he wasn't around join this was made. Yeah so indeed So bond follows him to his fencing. Lesson, where we the missing instructors played by Madonna herself as for some reason, her name is very this is the first time that a bond are a A singer bond theme has appeared as an actress in the film not like a for your eyes only where the singer appeared in the opening credits herself. has also the period where Madonna I think had Joseph she was living in England and people were making fun of her a lot. 'cause she she developed a strange English quasi English accent. which was people were making fun of her and saying she was doing on purpose and doing a bad job but I don't know can some people just go back since we're lease I, just give her the benefit of the dial, but she does sound odd. which again, just I don't know why you know she's. She's in the film's really introduction to her book Pierce. Brosnan seems to know her. And she introduces us to Bruce off raise and of course to Miranda Frost yes. Yeah. Ran Frost paid play by Rosamund Pike of gone girl fame but Yeah. So we basically all our characters have been met in Gustav Graves we believe him to just be a English billionaire philanthropist inventor but. As we learn there is actually much more to his story as we get thicker into this plot. But I a sword fight now. Part of the goofy nature of this film is that it's obviously it's terrible but I really I really do enjoy this sequence. I think, yes, it's a it's a fun little diversion of spawned fighting the villain although I do think that Pierce Brosnan maybe as a bit too old to beat this guy, he looks physically younger. Quicker than he is yeah. Yeah it's such a big. Of I feel that there's nothing it just sort of am soap out of there where I was kind of a bit taken aback as say having never seen before that they're just sorta like, oh, we'll fence with we'll just have fencing action I kind of expected to stay within the fencing arena like why wouldn dish and it said it turns into the morning all over the place you know yeah, there's imagining with swords, suits of armor and they're. Out To, kill each other the competition Roy at some point. Indeed it reminds me of the the Glass House fight in Moon raker where everything is just smashed to pieces. But, yeah. Bond wins the con- The contest and as he does. And Yeah. So I think I. Think this is. where bond goes to an underground station to meet with 'em than the also goes and visits Q. or actually no. Before that, we get a sequence where it feels like there's an invasion in mid six where moneypenny is killed and several people were killed. It's a very like the first time I saw this. I was like Oh man is this really happening and then and then it just turns out to be a VR simulated set up by Q. Who's John cleese is now taking on the role as Q. But yeah, this is a very. Strange sequence I think it really only works the first time you see it because you don't know or will actually this is your first time seeing it. What did you think Yeah. No like for me it was Kinda like I pegged it immediately and it was pretty much because like you say just opens. Wanting pennies just gone down like there's no way inhale they're going to have money penny jolly. Opening of a secret is. Still be trick on this and then they pull the order things on. Yeah. Okay. We we were that was coming, right? Yeah. So which has a bizarre payoff at the end of the movie But yeah, this is where he goes through the the room gadgets. Where you wash I'll watch he jokes that it's his twentieth one, its twentieth film in the franchise ha ha and you also gets a ring with a frequency that allows them to shatter any pane of glass. No matter how bulletproof. which he is actually a pretty nifty gadget uses it a few times? Yeah. Yeah but I, believe this takes us to the Ice Palace in Iceland if I'm not mistaken. If not let's let's get there. What do you think? Yeah. So we this is This. I don't even remember why they're there. They're there because Gustaf brave is unveiling his product he's been working on, which is in veiling acres. So of course, the satellite which can harnesses the power of the Sun to light up the darkest parts of the world and basically their cast the entire planet in a perpetual daylight, which which his his plan is to It would be like used to grow crops. So Basically, food can harvest twenty, four seven but I think if there were two sons lighting up the planet people would go fucking insane. They basically envoy debut this in. A country that has to the summer like nearly twenty four hours of sunlight. will be like that's a terrible idea we know from experience. That's. Yeah. We're I did see this is originally was going to be called Solaris this device within Steven Soderbergh with remaking salaciously like will back off it. So the do that and yet I would talk generally I would say of the Vice Iceland scenes I actually I went to Iceland earlier this year. I'm realize country a little bit disappointed that frankly I. I guess they take advantage of the glaciers and stuff bought add it. There's nothing really recognizable of the concrete they are other than a few like big glassy. Ice Plane. I feel like they don't really harnessed the the location that will always palaces a complete fabrication at there isn't one of the high slim's Lund's. So don't don't go there looking for that and like this movie. Yeah. So, am but yeah it this Ice Palace, they understand this works because everything's made a voice that shales are made of ice. All these women are walking around in backlist gowns are yes. This will work at all this is ridiculous but then again, this is also a as we didn't even mention this is the bond film with an invisible car all my God we've totally forgot value his car the vanish. Okay. Let's. Let's put this in. Let's put this in context Roger Moore said this was a bad idea. Roger Moore pointed out. This was going too far within the franchise, and if Roger Moore says that that you gone too far I think gets fair this is just such a Goofy kind of thing. It's not even utilizing any kind of particularly clever way at notes on each basically it's so I think it exists solely because cg at point where you can kind of put it together And I feel like I feel like special effects through the gadget than the other way round on this case. Yeah. I mean why use the the you're right the invisible car I mean even even with the skipping ahead to win, it's ultimately used to hide from Zahle? As he's GonNa Ram off the side into the pool when they're at the end of their car chase fry I. Mean even if he is backed up Zao wouldn't have been able to stop us flooring at full speed. So I don't know why he had to go invisible is really like he goes invisible are screaming like, oh no, that's the end for me, but he doesn't see what Bond I, Dunno invisible it gets one good side gangway snowmobile crashes into nothing. Yeah. That is that's in but that's about it and it's just so. Whatever it's India I am not even going to begin to argue with the science of the car, which is it's covered in miniature invisible cameras that will project the other side of the car through it to appear as if there's nothing there, which would probably mean that the car is only invisible from one specific angle in like a profile shot but Yeah. I I'm not even gonNA. Work. For Emily six I. that's right. You know. I'm I'm too much of a sin visible car cynic have a job there. Yeah. So anyways, there's reveal. I. Believe that Jinx is I. Don't know if we mentioned earlier that she's also she's her own secret agencies investigating because now is at the Ice Palace as well, and then this is where we find out that Gustav Graves is actually the deceased curl moon from the pre title sequence where he in the fourteen months bond was in. In being tortured in. North Korea. Curl Moon took it upon himself to get gene therapy to transform from like a five foot nine Korean man into a six foot one Englishman and then also. Make a name for himself as a billionaire and also constructed the ignorance satellite all in the span of just over one year. Yes. Yeah. That's impressive. He's go-getter is our colonel move. I feel like this is the ultimate goal back though I'm. Calling back to ask you only live twice. Surgeries yellow fence. Yeah. In in remarkable I I this is. An incredible innovation in. Film Racism. To. Raise a Korean character by turning him into Maggie. Smith Zone is just a phenomenal piece of scripting. So pointless doesn't really lend anything and I think it's worth noting honestly. that. Toby Stevens as good raves is frankly could have been replaced with a refrigerator as far as I'm concerned I. Do have no recollection of the man whatsoever or the character he's just basically he's got basically scowls a lot is what he does. You know and again, is it just a part? Isn't him share? I could barely even focus. But yeah, the reveal that he's actually a Korean man. It's one of those things. It's like you get the inkling of us like they wouldn't that will be very stupid thing to do. They just go straight ahead and they do it anyway no. Yeah. Why would anyone think to do that? But yes. So Jinx's captured by saves. Her is another call back to Goldfinger where she's on a table being tortured by a laser moving precariously close to her head. What is this room that uses laser support in you push into sleighs Fire, all over the becomes a giant disco party were there like dodging lasers to fight neophytes a big Samoan Henchman named Mr. Kill. who gets a laser shot through the back of his skull and it comes out of his mouth and then yeah and then they also unceremoniously cut his arm off the lasers so they can use it to get past security grid on the. Inner that that's a weird kind of like dark joke to kind of cut around because they don't. You know show them doing it offices to sort of like a nod nod wink like just saw the corpses arm off. Stage yeah as a one off. Yes. So I think also this point bond has a slept with Miranda Frost in the Ice Hotel on. Why she's revealed to be Gustaf graves his right hand woman yet we forgot to mention that she was actually originally she's m I six and she was cover she was she was there right for six to monitor graves, and then it turns out she's actually a double agent and she was actually the person relaying the information and it wasn't on twin when bond was captured in eighth. Alright. It was a leak that was in fact actually baby-faced Rhythms Pike I've never seen her this young it was little bit disconcerting to me. Yeah. No. I Yeah I never knew she was bombed girl gone girl some later project. So I was. The first film. So that's that's crazy but. Of Her career that's a rough start to after go back to but at so goes I mean I would argue she's one of the better things about this movie sean, he's He's certainly it's it's a kind of a campaign performance especially especially once she becomes the villain because I think I think once you're the villain film like this, you can sort of just cut loose in your early. Your dignity is something in early necessarily worry yourself about instead allies you're chewing up the scenery and having fun but. Yes, she certainly knows going forward and gives them a Jordan she. She played ice maiden well in general Ice Castle. That's right I. Just Amend Dimension Actually Think Gooby told about how Jason Bond, Cocoa Open. We actually know were first on scene bond having sex also fourteen month dry spell before that. So Oh, man yeah. Who as I don't know. That work monitoring number. Yeah. Bond is a man who fears being alone. All those lonely nights with Scorpion. Venom. But. What you do to stave off the loneliness in North Korea yeah. So this heart over and over again maybe I, don't know in yeah. Tantric sex thing that's where he learned to stop his heart. is in the middle of six just yes. Well Good Lord. Well speed of good Lord we Bond escape. This is also Iceland is where Gustaf Braves is doing his rocket car testing bon use it to escape and He turns Acre Assan to try to fry bond and bond gets to the edge of glacier, and this is where we get to the craziest fucking seen in any bond film. bond takes out like the. The emergency parachute out of the rocket car breaks off like a side door, and once the grace glacier breaks off into the water causes a huge wave bond windsurfer D- serves A. leading. got a specific name but yeah one of those variants of having a parachute in a surfboard. Yeah. It to it's in the. The CGI quite frankly does not hold up wait. It's the. Playstation. One video game. Would Zero Interactivity Yeah. Everything just looks like middle toy cars being balanced. It's like a kids play sash. Flung ended the laser cutting the glacier. Still confused as to how to how? How graves managed to develop this distinct with government funding apparently, your government assistance to create a secret weapon. It's very silly salt flaw but anyhow, yes he he escapes in Grand Fashion asked I can only imagine the explaining this to Peter. Hoffman. Before they shot I know this is what's happening in this. What you're doing you're gonNA look at the debt is a licensed like auto now. We're not doing this again. Yeah. Pierces even like he slips into his Irish accent in this phobia seems he's just beyond trying. It's like. Well, here's another one. Let's do it. And it's also it's kind of sad too because of all the bond actors who played bond, he's the one who regrets not having another film like all the other actors have moved on. Are you know they just talk about something that happened on their pierce? Brosnan Sort of sort of sad about this, this Erin is life that he wants claimed the now has no longer I feel he's potential with maybe never really reached an adult about I. Think. You know we're told very fondly about. About the world is not enough and yeah, is very solid but Yeah. I mean he's gone. He's really way he's got two good ones and too bad once. And for all of them, he's sort of. Yeah he seems like the perfect bond pay paper and you know he he gets along with nothing. He doesn't really have an iconic bond villain maybe comparatively. Timothy Dalton it's two films, but they're so radically different from the rest of the franchise that you know they they kind of stand out a little more Pierce Brosnan lie somewhere between Conroy and Roger Moore, and living just never quite ease. Cash that's the thing is that you can sum up here said, he's a very much a well rounded bond I like the man I think he's got great moments, but ultimately, his strongest moments do not stand out as much as. Connery's best moments do or were. He does not get to the level of Dalton and then and then when he gets to when he gets to the full goofy Campinas of die another day it's not like Roger Moore were I think Moon Lakers a lot of fun I enjoy watching that movie but it and I think the some of the space effects it from the era hold up better than the digital effects do in this film. So it's it's just yeah matter of balance and I, think also he brosnan was just kind of burned with. Scripts because we haven't even gotten to the fact that every other line in this movie, it's either a line of exposition or upon because he read when he ran counter. Zao in the Ice Palace he says, I've always Mr sparkling personality is how it goes. How's that for a punchline? When they're torturing Halle Berry they ask who sent her she says Yo Mama, and there's all this just one after another. It's an endless tirade of the worst. Bargain. Basement puns you can imagine there's that and also I cannot like we mentioned earlier but I just I really want to impress on any if you have not seen the film, the whole speech changing shifting thing. Is So it just. Everything. Is Worse because of us so yeah, this film just really late I, agree with you I think like the Roger Moore Films Very broad and Goofy at points but they they. Were enjoyable in that. But this one just kind of grates the nerves it's. Not Nice to watch. Him Yeah I I could say it's an unpleasant looking film unpleasant period of film that where they were kind of switching to digital elements in post production for her visual effects. But but it was it was still kind of a a period where they were finding their footing and yeah, it show was it's. It's it's very much. Hey, we we discovered this thing. Let's use it Elliot's no don't do that ever again. He I feel like digital particularly improved colour grading and stuff like digital just allowed like to have an idea and just realized that immediately whereas if they had to go through like a photochemical process at some point, someone would have been like we shouldn't do this to solve whereas in digits like I. Feel you flip a switch almost like. Sent broad parameters do you can work like that where film slower and more careful time consuming and so maybe there's more time for people to go. This is a mistake we should rove is back where digital allows the worst impulses to kind of make it much further down the road which I think is kind of shaped. That modern cinema? Yeah. I. End There's also just to with digital technology in CGI either really more of A. I hesitate to say laziness but it's kind of what it feels like because you're leading a computer, do all the work for you as opposed to like matte paintings in like things. Like that's why I always love stop motion animation because they're still a loving craft that goes into making something come alive onscreen that you just don't get with this modern technology. So yeah yeah it's a it's a very bizarre turning point. For? Bronze. Yeah. Yeah. I think of digital visual effects the you know as we more stores come out as like digital artists people actually make them off from work insane hours for very little pay. But. Proper Guidance and funding can still just look like crap but it's you know there's laziness that I, agree with you the conceptualization but there's still a lot of hard work to make it happen just of a bunch of drones they abused do that part yet? It still looks like crap at the end. Like. Maybe maybe you should've thought more about what you trying to do. Yeah. Exactly. I mean this is the only one that has a giant space laser cutting a glacier. So for bonded surf off of collapsing always palace. Yeah. So back to the ice palace bond gets into. A sort of a goofy spy-versus-spy car chase sequence which karnal almost missiles. Yeah now. Part of me actually kind of really enjoys the sequence in one moment in particular. I always am fond of its where bond is these cars flipped upside down onto the ice and basically the roof of his car is drifting across the ice. In, his Green souped-up Jaguar with which has missiles in it as well, and he fires a missile at Bond Bond Pops Open the moon roof and then kicks out the ejector seat which flips his car over and also dodges the missile. It's just it s just a brief moment that I enjoy but it's you know it's again it's a very. overlong in goofy chase is over the course of this movie I don't recall which seat to see a check because he sitting in the seat when he hits the ejector. So I guess passenger incident passenger seat Oscillator I don't recall if there is a passenger seat visible from then on but yeah, that's that's a little. It's it's varies amy, this whole thing. Cars has mid oils everywhere like it's a fucking agents of mask. Mikhail Toy. That's exactly what it is a mass cars. Yeah. It's crazy. Yeah. Well, the bonds uses the invisible the Dais X. invisibility machine to dodge vows final attack, and then he shoots a chandelier to crush Zao into a fountain of blood in the water. and. Then he saves jinx who is been drowning in her hotel room because she was locked in melting, the floors above her. So it's been rapidly filling with water but Yeah. baen safes are they tracked down Gustav Graves is in North Korea. So the film returns to north. Korea. The final showdown, which takes place on a plane. and. They get into two separate fight sequences were bond is fighting Colonel Moon as Gustaf raves and he's got a very goofy EXO skeleton suit on with like Nintendo power glove in a three D. glasses that can zap people and Halle Berry gets into this sword fight with. Random of Frost Rosamund Pike so there's these sort of two different sequences cut back to fourth but Yeah the. They kill their respective villains any. Anything any monkey muster any thoughts or criticism on the sequence. That is the only thing I remember from. This is one part where were the women are fighting and I think Halle Berry Skewers arc of war right had it's like okay. Really understand this is happening. I don't even remember how like A. Yet it honestly is the thing that I'm kind of impressed with how much of this forgotten I watched this not very long ago like literally a few days ago I remember bond shoots someone grabs his hand shoots gone at hits the window of the planes. depressurizes yeah. Out including the inventor guide, there's this guy who's like an adventure for grace. WHO's perhaps the most enormous henchman of being Dr Franchise Learn what his name is? He dare he's got like a it's like just a one syllable. German name can. A sex like my. Go on. But anyhow, he dons at that point who cares he's he's got one of the funnier lines in the movie though after when bond steals the rocket car and drive away from he says boss he beats your time. I love imagine being. So we can't read the room that you will tell your Mako maniacal boss that also the fact that he managed to be time while going in a straight line with Iraq car, it's like, yeah, what what can't to. Vlad. Of course it is. Why can't they go? Oh. What I realized I had I had that not jotted down to I forgot, which was which I am but anyhow so. We're here as well. It's which confused me the allegiances here too because so Colonel Moon a gross stuff drives our graves meets back with General Moon is father who doesn't know? Raves. Is His son. I'm confused I. Don't remember what happens here consists he he? He doesn't want grace. Do this thing for North Korea because will cause a war of the North Korea will get wiped out a there's kind of a confusing. While here about whether, you know what's the North Koreans North Korean commanded the good guys now. They they're issues gets lost in the Mishmash data played window. So yeah, he is all self. It's it's supposed to be I guess the emotional payoff the but I mean the I mean you barely remember General Moon from opening and It's it's it's just too ridiculous to think that Gustaf Raves is actually a shorter Korean man embracing his father it does not work in the slightest go to rescue the fatherland. Nor degrees all GONNA gather round. The British stooge yet I think I think they're trying to basically unite northern South Korea just make it be the world's greatest super power plants. He's using his uses the acreage delight blow up the Demilitarized Zone or right? Yeah. He's Zapping that and then the plane starts flying towards us and someone is a bonder jeans who steers the plane and loss at onto that course of they're all gonna fly in. So she's like it's a suicide mission, but in the get out again. I don't remember how the locked in but I do remember they get out. By Tossing a helicopter out of the plane after they toss out it, colonel moons sports cars. Is. Apparently. He's a big sports car if they do not own collecting them and taking them everywhere with him But yeah, they escape in a helicopter and. Gustav Braves get sucked into a the one of the plane's engines and then you are correct about art of war being pierced by a book because Halle. Berry. Then picks up the book with a knife sticking out of it and Miranda Frost says I can read your every move in Halle. Berry says read this in stabs at your heart in kicks it in says, no, that's that's right yet. The lawns in these are not grace. Now, his that graves get silk through jet engine. Just, beforehand, at bonds, it's time to face gravity. Isn't really forced acting on him when he gets sucked out of a plane through engine light. That's that's how. That's melt. The Earth's full anyhow, and that's and that's in response to Gustav. Graves. Is claimed time to face destiny which time they face gravity erased. It has nothing to do with how he dies. He doesn't follow his death he's not crushed by anything he gets sucked through a moving plane engine. Alarming I guess the the situation is a certain gravity for him. Yeah. But Yeah I. I feel like bond is off quip game here. Sure. We should mention that the entire situation that's happening the plane is being monitored by both the mix and the CIA and the head of the played by Michael Madsen, in our would have been probably jinxed his boss if they were to make a spinoff series. But Charlie and she would been the angel exactly than the actual. Charlie's angels from Vk Mountain was did so poorly that helped convince do not perceive that idea further apparently. Yeah. Just stick with working with Tarantino I guess But Yeah. So bondage ings flap to safety in their helicopter they get An also have a safe like a truckload of diamonds that. I guess is in reference to diamonds are forever diamonds serve what started this whole thing in? There they have this very uncomfortable dialogue where it sounds like they're having sex, but really, they're just putting diamonds into jinx's belly button. That's like a terrible idea to me. Yeah it's in. So that's Halla. Yeah, and that's how Pierce Brosnan wraps up his tenure bond by putting diamonds in. Halle Berry's belly button. Sexy Yeah and. Wraps up die. Another, day. It's pretty bad. Yeah, Aero. Shopping part of me would like enjoy it as like a a campy fun bad one because you know some of these that we've gone through, like I, keep mentioning Moon Raker is like the closest analogue but it's it's it's just a lot of it's just a lot of misguided ideas. What's really impressive is that this movie as stupid as it is also managed to kick off like an international incident because it really pissed off. South. Koreans O- on several fronts I think Fiction Korea the at bonds six by a Buddhist statue am is a few other bits and pieces. There were protests in Korea shot either cinemas. Yeah. Sure North Korea probably didn't like it either but I don't think most people care what North Korea thinks. It's not really a marcus. So listen to them. But yeah, like imagining, kicking off a of. An international incident for this prison this movie. Man May get interesting. Yeah. God think God for parasite? Yeah. It's all say anyways. deemed. Redeemed you Redeem Korea parasite. Well I mean, let's let's not waste any more time. Let's run. Let's run this bitches numbers. Absolutely. Okay. So We said last last episode Pierce Brosnan establish himself in just three movies as the most lethal James Bond Anna he tax on the Twenty Five Year Nice count. So that gives him a total of one hundred eighty which puts him clear of Roger Moore. Paltry Eighty eighty-six kills I'm GonNa get the most of these probably came from the pre-title sequencer. Junkie along handcrafts. BEING BEING BLOWN UP AT A good chunk of us and then snowmobiles later on right? I do also I will add one moment. I like is where he uses the parachute to. clothesline guy on the snowmobile that he can steal it. Now I do that every every now and then a reminder as to why I enjoy watching these movements but this one has the fewest and furthest between. Yes absolutely. So yeah, I just notice actually this film I think this is Pierce Brosnan Lowest Body Count Twenty five I think. And one short of all the people, Timothy Dog and killed in two films. He give you an idea of just how mile load thirsty at James Bond Become Yeah, you're losing your edge. There appears can Daniel Craig catch him we're. GonNa find out well. Yet. But you know before we get to that, let me just say this movie cost one, hundred, sixty, million dollars to make. So which is two hundred, twenty, nine, million dollars today up to this point it is the most expensive bond movie yet which is weird because it looks like the cheapest since shittiest one yet that we seen works. Yeah we're how that works. Would oh I apologize one, hundred, sixty, million it is what it made in the US is one hundred, forty, two, million dollars was his budget But then this, we would go on to make four, hundred, thirty, two, million dollars worldwide unadjusted. So this was the highest grossing bond film unadjusted for inflation back in its day. I mean, it's I just have to chalk it up to like. The the this being the forty, th anniversary in this people were early celebrating. This one is like, oh, it's bigger. Than before and like Brosnan, his films were all like to films apart. So are two years apart. So this is like a three year apart. So people were kind of starved for one. They were kind of going big with this one end. Yeah, I think they're just through in all these ingredients into a into a ditch. It stars. Academy. Award winner Halle Berry I'm sure that MARLA. Monster's ball along check out giant other day at Sir Idei you have. Mary of Madonna. One of the biggest stars in the world doing the theme song it's it seemed like just all these ingredients but They had made a giant ship pie it did and yet this still has a hoyer rotten tomatoes average rating than tomorrow never saw herb the world is not enough which is the acid Wrigley better film that I mean, yeah that if this were released today, there's no way it would. This would have like I would guess like seventeen percent or something it's it would be absolutely ruined in and I should note that prior to this the highest grossing bond film unadjusted was. Moon raker and which is also a film that swung for the crazy fences and also was a reaction to like the star wars of its day. So this is it gets to appoint every now and then we're bongos. So a far left that it actually has to kind of reset and that's exactly what will be getting with the next film. So that will happen beyond Lavaux that listeners yeah absolutely. So I'm just GONNA RUN OVER GONNA run over his partnerships through this. Range of one interesting number. Here he is. He beds two ladies in this film. Course Jinx Johnson and then Miranda for oft but. I was telling you know. Talking recent episodes have really there's no recapturing the greatest age difference free Roger Moore on Caribou K. in for your eyes. Only thirty. Year Age difference. Feel that will be on a salable. Close here, actually surprisingly our three, two thousand and two Pierce Brosnan forty nine. Years. Old Rosamund Pike Twenty three. So that is a twenty six year age difference is blows everything outside of the water at cones just so close wonderfully inappropriate an strange although I suppose we can explain the fact that Miranda Frost is a villain and is doing it to to get something from volunteer. Based on load is gone I believe or something. But anyway I, guess more ways than one off. God, this film saw. So Yeah there. There we go on. That brings Pierce Brosnan's total tallied ten ladies man which puts them well, well behind connery and more who have nineteen apiece. And no doubt Clemencia. Well. Here's Brosnan. We hardly knew Ye. Yes. Certainly certainly, a period that has its as has its moments, but I think looking back it's the the one bond tenure that has aged the worst even if I happen to really like to the films this one has aged like milk behind refrigerator it. Yeah. That's a good point milk behind the refrigerator with Eli, the exhaust burning on. It's it's nasty but Yeah that's a that's die another day and that does it for us Jack any final words or any any you WanNa plug your social media working people find you you. You can find me on twitter at Real Jackie gleason Manziel slow. Let me know what your favorite parts and join another day are Ya let us know do you have a weird fondness for the song? Do you think it's the worst one like ninety eight percent of the world does I I mean where we'd be glad to hear you can reach me at Jake Trope, Eela, T. R. O. P. L. A. All usually respond to. Anything that sent to me on twitter. So Salo even if you if you're a fan to say, hi Ole breach it, that can also email us optimism maxine gmail.com or a hit up our twitter account at optimism maxine Also, if you're listening on Itunes or wherever you get your podcast, go and give us a five star review into leave us a nice rating and let us know why you like enjoy the show and do you do you agree with us?

Steven Jay Rubin - The James Bond Movie Encyclopedia

"Like to know all about the facts and the james bond movies well today. We're speaking with the man steven jay rubin who wrote the book on it called the james bond movie encyclopaedia. So let's get to him in our smartest the room segment all right. Well steve to the smartest spy in the room segment. We're thrilled to have you on the show. Cracking the code of spy movies dan. It's so so classy to be here at spy movie navigator which is the epicenter of earth spy fascination. Nice first of all we love the new updated book i've got my copyright here the james bond movie encyclopaedia. We've owned and read all your previous versions as well and love the new colors so they can read it. Yeah color photos and everything liquor. That on his gorgeous yeah. It is loved the new color photos and all the james bond movie. Facts terrific stuff. So steve. we know you. Steven jay rubin has your author name for what is the next book is the james bond movie encyclopaedia. Can you give us a quick background on yourself. I know you don't just do the james bond stuff so you can kind of talk about some of the things you've done so the audience understands who you are. Sure no of course. Of course i think of myself as a film historian but my day to day stuff is more oriented towards Film and television. I'm a writer producer. I'm out trying to sell movies and television shows every day i graduated. Ucla with a bachelor's in history started writing my first buck On world war two movies of the forties fifties and sixties was published in nineteen eighty one the same year. As my first james bond books. I started writing about a world war movies and i learned early on that not that many people were interested in it. I wanted to write on a subject that was universal. And i had i had read john. Brosnan's book the james bond in the cinema back in the early seventies and it had a little bit of behind the scenes information. But at that time i was a staff writer at cinna fantastic magazine chicago which was one of the first major magazines that dealt with science fiction fantasy and horror. And i'd become kind of the in house film. Archaeologists on films of the fifties and starting in the mid seventies. I had published some articles on films like the day. The earth stood still and forbidden planet. War of the worlds have got a lot of a lot of attention nationally. I even got a personal note from leonard maltin who is one of my heroes. Who wrote that wonderful film. Guide me here and encouraged me to do this. Kind of deep research and at that time decided to approach albert r broccoli and tell him about my interest in treating the bond films as a strict historical approach and i got total cooperation from them. And i. I went to london that summer of one thousand nine hundred seventy seven and did all my interviews and they opened up all their files to me. They gave him of the call sheets on the i ten films so and i quote that they were shooting this on a certain day. It's basically the right off the call. She little facts. Kind creep into call sheets that the public would normally know like anthony dos and being on set for from russia. Playing blow fell. I obviously he's he's not credited. You're probably doing a favor. But that kind of stuff made the book really fun and that was the first book. The james bond films a behind the scenes history which i as i said was published in eighty one updated in eighty three and then i was approached by another chicago company. Contemporary books in nineteen ninety to do an encyclopedia. Bad had success with marilyn monroe and elvis presley's encyclopedias. So bonn was a natural for them and i kinda jumped at the idea because i've always thought of the bond films as well as the novels full of facts and the facts that needed to be defined and the book is not what i call so much as read it cover to cover type book. It's a celebration that you can dip into whenever you want. And so the four four encyclopedia's. I've done the The first one and ninety two update ninety five second update in two thousand and three and now this latest one is my pure way of celebrating the bond series with the fans. You know and. I'm just thrilled the way the book turned out. Yeah it looks great. And of course i've paid through it just like you said it's great for paging through and looking up things. You're interested in finding particular factors. That's pretty interesting. I didn't know that kind of thing. These color pictures this with this edition to which is really nice. Yeah really looks beautiful. Thank you thank you. And i have to give chicago review press credit because they they have this finest quality paper. Yeah the photos are breathtakingly reproduced. Here i also had I had luck to deal with some artists who basically let me feature. There aren't working colluding. Jeff marshals wonderful paintings which i think are just so stunning in kind of capturing the whole bond world very cool all right steve tell us what kind of research went into the book. And how long did that take you. Well i had to retype the original copy of the book. I hadn't written about encyclopedias since three. So seventeen years had passed. And i couldn't find my original word documents so i had to literally retype the whole book and in doing so. I had had the experience of working on an encyclopedia which chicago review press because they had done two years ago. The twilight zone encyclopedia which i did for them. And so i kinda knew what they were looking for. They don't particularly like me getting too into the nitty gritty trivia signpost telephone numbers real minutia that may or may not play so i exercised a lot of that stuff out of the book and then in terms of the individual biographies i was able to augment them to include more of their filmography. So if you want to know for instance what a honor blackman did before she did bond or even after she did bond. I have a lot more biographical information in the book. So each biography and us probably three or four hundred biographies in the book had to be updated considerably to include their latest movies. And also since. I had not done an encyclopedia since two thousand three. I had not covered any of the Daniel craig movies. So i had to get deeply into every aspect of the dan creamery generally what i do is i watched the movie with a legal pad and every time a fact is mentioned in the movie i write it down and determine which ones we're going to put in as entries in the book and keep keep it not as not as as much minutia but going heavily into the people who made the films and is much more about the films as we could get in. You probably met all kinds of people in your research and so on. So what kind of interesting people did you meet along the way here steve. Well a lot of my research was done way back in the day. So you know when i went over to london god forty three years ago. I interviewed people like terrence yang and peter on and A lot of people. And then i came back to l. I interviewed richard maibaum. Tom mankiewicz covered broccoli. Harry saltzman george. Lazenby sean every time. I would try to get an interview with sean connery. He was not available. And it's it's tough but that's okay because thanks to the internet. A lot of this material now is available on the internet that you can kind of piece your way through to find salient facts. But i would say that some of my more interesting interviews were with people who weren't the high profile people people who could tell you a little bit of something that nobody had asked them about. Before for instance. I interviewed bill hill. Now bill hill is a production manager. He happens to be the production manager in from russia with love and when they needed a british age and to walk into the bathroom with grant the robert shaw character and get bumped off and grants feels his briefcase and his little bowler bill hill volunteered and bill told me all about the moment and it was one of those priceless little moments and i love that kind of stuff and then talking to this. Johnny jordan was interesting. Johnny jordan was the helicopter cameraman. Who was filming the helicopter chasing. You only live twice above the volcanoes in japan an updraft through one of the Telecopiers up toward the camera ship and slammed into his ski chopped off his leg in this aerial sequence and his leg fell into a some kind of rehabilitation facility so they try to reattach it. And which didn't actually work. But he's a real hero because not only did he. Go back to filming. He's he's filming. The ski chases an automatic. The secret service from a parachute rate had hangs on a helicopter which i feature of course in my book and so moments that like that were interesting and then this is charlie. Rose sean who. Nobody knows who that is or particularly cares. But there's always there's always been as interesting little cryptic. Welcome message on the hanger finger when the airplanes are putting fort knox to sleep in gold finger. There's a sign that says. Welcome general rouge sean. Will charlie rhys. Sean was the military liaison guy for eon productions. He was the one who got them. All the cooperation with fort knox cetera et cetera. So mrs rashawn shared with me information. And he has a little cameo. He's an air force officer sitting next to the desk when they're talking about the operation thunderball but i love that kind of stuff. I i will admit. I have had more passion for the first james bond movies i saw as a kid doctor no from russia with love goldfinger thunderball joined live twice secret service and not as much passion for the later ones. Although i respect them. And i think casino royale dan i daniel. Craig was one of the best spy movies in decades rivals. My favorite which is goldfinger on. I love you. You've taken these stories that you just talked about and those stories and a bunch of others are in the encyclopedia and it's fascinating reading because like you say it's it's not just oh. I talked to copy other people who really help. I think gives you the shape and the behind the scenes. Step if you will to these and you bring it out very well in the way you've written these different sections of the encyclopedia. Thank you tom. I think that if you're going to tell the history of anything you need to go to the actual people. It's really critical. I don't necessarily like just riding from third hand. Although sometimes i'm forced to. But i think that whenever i can find a little fact or a mention that that people don't normally no i jump all over that and and i think that the book is kind of a mixture of those great images that we found plus those little facts. Yeah i love the little story. And i think that really embellish his book and expanded in a way that is unique in that most other treatments. Just don't cover that kind of stuff all also when you start to look at the resumes of all these performers. You realize that they've worked together at other times. It wasn't the first time they've seen each other. I mean terence. Young had his own film stock company because he was mentored by john ford and young just love to bring his guys back in so not surprising. Anthony dawson would do him a favor. Playing blow feldon from russia with love. Those kinds of things would happen a lot and and then later on. It's kind of fun to see how some of these people came back together. I mean there's it's funny. Because i don't think i've ever seen the movie. But there was a spoof of Bond movie is called operation. Kid brother it featured sean connery's brother as janey on kind of clone neil connery and a lot of bond players from the joined him in that. Let's see lowest maxwell's in it. Anthony dawson's in it danielle bianchi. The girl from from were love is in it so you know it's fun to see how these people came back together. Yeah they always talk about the bond family. And what you're saying. Now just just verifies that you have these connections with people and they kind of do things together that you normally maybe wouldn't wouldn't see now you see that with some of the other genres that you write about because you don't just write about bond. I'm very myopic right. I'm pretty much just by movies. But i i know you've done some writings on other other films and television shows. You see that that family kind of feel there or is it early. Unique to the bond experience well for the twilight zone rod sterling desolate. Had its favorites. I mean uc burgess meredith. You see jack klugman like that. William shatner did a couple. I mean they. They liked to play with people who did wonderful things for them. I think hollywood is an interesting situation to crack for new players because it's always very difficult to break in when people generally are working with their friends already so it's often you have to fight up hill to get noticed and i've discovered that if you don't know somebody personally in hollywood it's very difficult to get any kind of action you know. I'm out there every day. Selling movies and tv shows right now. I've with my partner. Arthur friedman. we've acquired the the book the best biography on world. War two hero audie murphy and we wanna make a park television mini series about the life of audie murphy and There's another great story and we think having the book and having unique approach to the character who could make this work. Sometimes you don't do the movie again at some movies too small to contain a story like that audie murphy story not only involves world. War involves hollywood because he became a movie star. Yeah that's cool. You mentioned some of the people involved in getting the james bond movie encyclopaedia out the door any others. You wanted to mention anything that you know tom. I have to talk about the team. I put together to supply me with the illustrations. Because i think at the end of the day people are going to buy the book for the illustrations because one of the things. I've always had challenges. That do not have a relationship with eon productions. They kind of the maverick. So they're not gonna give me everything in in the vials anymore. So i go out into the marketplace. And i find people who have collections of bonds stills and then this time i launched a worldwide search and i went over to england sweden and france. A some extrordinary people Anders frayed as wonderful. You know anders. He's he's great and his website from sweden with love is abban centerpiece in europe. And he gave me hundreds of pictures. I went to paris. Met luke luke lack. Who's the french president of the french bond fan club he gave me fodder. I went to the james bond found. Actually inflaming foundation in santa barbara. Michael van blair com. He gave me pictures. I also went penguin books. Random house to get permission to reproduce the covers of the first ten signet paperback in fleming. Books which were the books. I read as a junior high school student and got me. I interested in bond. Actually my father was responsible because my father would generally go on business trips. And bring back westerns and i have no interest in reading westerns. One day he dropped goldfinger on my desk and said you might like this. And i'm looking at a picture on the cover of. Let's say i'm mom probably twelve. And i'm looking at a cover of a book and it has a naked blonde woman on the cover in gold like that so i'm saying well maybe this is something interesting and then when you start to re- goldfinger and the way he describes women It's it's let's let's say it's just something you know. This is somebody who'd been reading. Dc comic books and all of a sudden. And i was reading dr doolittle. At that time. This was not exactly dr a little bit of an upgrade. Exactly i as. I've said i said it for years. That the james bond movies kind of ruined me for women for a few decades. That's good. We talked a little bit about the challenges you had in writing the book the james bond movie encyclopaedia and talk a little bit about verifying the facts like the call sheets and so on you have any other kinds of stories about that and we were verifying the facts and there's some interesting little twists in that well. I have to credit the editorial team at chicago. Review press spits particularly devon trini. Who's my editor. I mean he's He's very specific about you. Know getting back up on anything. I said so. He was all over the internet checking things writing. An encyclopedia is an organic enterprise. Because things are constantly changing within even entries people live and die and you have to record their deathbeds even since the book was published It's been out now. people have died. I mean we lost margaret nolan. Weeks ago honor blackman claudine. Oj all the great bond girls of the sixties. There are no longer thirty years old. Unfortunately in our in our minds i they will always be thirty years old. It's you know it's a one thing. I have learned. Having published. Several bond books is that the fans demand accuracy. You know they don't want third hand. You think they wanna know things. So if i couldn't verify fact. I didn't put it in the book and i was i i i even though. I don't get official cooperation from the people. i do. see their press kits on the on the internet. I can go into their video. Prescott's i can see actual interviews with the cast and filmmakers. I would pull quotes from those. I didn't have time to go all over the world and it tracked down a lot of the bond people who've made the newer films but i've got quotes from a lot of different sources. Great so is you're getting these these data all the database guy so for me. It's all data right so each each fact that you're getting. I imagine you had tens of thousands of these in this book. You've got over a thousand entries. But i know he had more than that. So you mentioned the fact that for this version of the of the encyclopedia you took out some of the minu what you call the manusha by the way we keep in our database. Because that's really good for for somebody looking in a database for looking at encyclopedia. You really don't want that. But how how did you make some of those tough calls where it's like to keep this. Do i not. And what were some of the decision points on that. It's tough it's very difficult. I mean i think that devon wanted me to keep it around two hundred and fifty thousand words. And i think my first draft was four hundred thousand words. So i was. I had a great task to fulfilled. It will in terms of the performers. I think every major performer in the series. Is there with a few more than that. But other than the top ten. I would have to cut away some divide. Or if he's excited. I'd i buy more bit players and their their brief moments. But i think the the key ones are there Funny a friend of mine said how could you leave. Robert brown john out and robert brown. John did the titles for from russia with love and goldfinger. And i just i had to. Although he's mentioned in tasmania. Do you have any anecdotes him. Yeah i have a great anecdote from my friend. Frank tidy so i mean the thing. Is you know it's hard sometimes. I had probably pages and pages and pages of numbers numbers that have meaning and each movie. The you know. Obviously the the the a-bomb ticking down to only seven and goldfinger. That kind of number. How much you know certain things are worth in this story. How much they're bob for how much they're sold for homage there one foreign gambling and i probably had maybe eighty or ninety number entries and now i have like twenty so i had to cut those down Well i like the way you did it in this encyclopedia because created an entry of those numbers. So if you're looking for the for the detail stuff you've got one place to go. Where in the old encyclopaedia it was. You had to know where to go. Try to find that right now. That's an interesting question to bring up. Tom because somebody complained with my twilight zone encyclopedia. Where's the index. And i looked at them a little bit of scans and said wait a second. The new book is an index is. I'm not gonna spend another two weeks compiling every fact into an index. So you're just gonna have to work a little bit harder in this took. I'm sorry but that's just the way it is. It should be a little bit of a surprise for you too. You don't need you turn to page. You never know what you're going to find on that page. It should be fun with a capital f. Yeah that is the fun of it. I think it's terrific. You could just flipped. Virtually any page and there's something interesting. I'll open the book right now. I'll just. I'm a fan and i'll jump in and i'm reading on page. One hundred ninety eight we're reading about olga korolenko who was the lead female and quantum of solace played the brazilian woman camille excuse me bolivian women camille montana's and then the same page. We got burt. Kwok and bernard kwok of course played mr ling. The nuclear fishing expert in in gold finger. And i have a nice picture of bert and they've got a nice picture of all. The ells in men were talking about dialogue from tom. Mankiewicz descript the first entry in allies law. Roche fu call. He's a french writer. Philosopher quoted in by blow fell in the iowans are forever which Tom mankiewicz his favorite light in the movie. In the things you get those nice pictures in there. So we've done in. Iran is we've taken these and put them into a database. But i don't have pictures right so if you and i really think the pictures enhance the experience you wanna get the hunting. And pecking kind of stuff. The database helps you with that but the book is a much visual presentation which was critical because i think that selling books has changed a lot. Forget about novels. Novels will always sell because people need to read them on airplanes but writing books about film. History you've got to pay a great deal of attention to the visual presentation because they're further one thousand nine reasons for people not to pick up your book you wanna give them twenty five reasons to pick up your yeah. I mean you've done a lot of research. He's done a lot of interviews. Here are like you mentioned with cubby. Broccoli and richard maibaum and in others i mean what. Were your favorite stories from those any story that you haven't told before from from some of these interviews that maybe we can share now a little incidental intelligence you wanna keep in. I had a funny experience. It's not directly related to the book. But i was asked to do the commentary track on the first three bond movies that were featured on laserdisc and they became kind of caused a lab because this is for the criterion collection. And they're they're known for doing those really high end laser disc presentations with a lot of behind the scenes commentary. However the gentleman who's running the criterion time is now my writing partner. David lee miller. David miller and i really skews the phrase we bonded on this but basically he never asked for permission from cubby broccoli to feature commentary track. David went around and interviewed. Almost everybody involved with the first three bond movies including taryn shining and peter hunt and richard may a bomb and they were very candid with their discussions. I mean Let's see cream bays girlfriend in from russia. Love who's pining for him from the said t to come make love to her career bay and you know when she laid back you see her full cleavage and her structure and taryn. Sean on audio cues. Now that's what i call production value and then and then he then he has this guy. We were talking about Lottie legna who played rosa. Klebb the agent. And he's talking about. He's talking about rosa club. And saying you know. She was eighty two years old and she was still screwing like crazy. Says this on the commentary track. So i can just imagine what cubby broccoli thought when he heard that commentary trucks so all of those discs were pulled from the stores they were forced to be taken back and they became collectors items of course but i thought that that was funny and terrence young. I have to say was one of the most colorful interviews i'd ever had. Because he he just had so many interesting observations about putting the bond films together and then of course when you hear some of his commentaries on the actual disks you know you see like for instance. I love the moments. Like when when sean is getting out of the canoe where he's been dallying with sylvia trench at the beginning of from russia love and he walks over to answer his call in after gets a beeper. He's wearing this shirt. He's putting on his shirt and shut. Yeah that's my shirt. I loaned it the moment. Like that are just classic. And then i remember. Richard jenkins was like a second or third ad on thunderball and when they're running the john. Canoe parade all around Nassau going whistle. Whistle boom boom whistle whistle boom boom. He said that terron said. I am getting a headache. We gotta stop as stopped the parade for a few minutes so could have some more champagne and get rid of his headache. But you know you have ten thousand people in this parade. And he said jenkins also said that. The performance were wearing paper costumes and after going around few few times the paper started falling off and they were. They were kind of semi nude. So that doesn't quite work. That great story. So you talk about of those interviews and you mentioned that you never got to interview sean. Anybody else you would have really liked to have gotten to. I become a huge fan of casino. Royale royale i think that casino royale rebooted. The series blew out all the stops. And i think that brought in the daniel craig era which has been a big bonanza for the bond series. I think they're going to be sad to see him. Go after no time to die. Think he's done his last bon. I would've loved to have sat down with the team that put casino royale together starting with the director and the production team that would have been fun also would be find a sit down with barbara and michael the producers and find out what their dynamics are these days because They've faced enormous challenges. I mean this whole co era. I mean when are we going to see no time to die. It's crazy. i mean it was. It was november than it was april and it was november. Now it's april again. I mean it's it's i heard. They just recently turned down six now. They turned on four hundred million dollars from net flicks streaming streaming. Yeah that's a big number. Yeah yeah it's are thinking the same kind of thing for sky fall that it would be a billion dollar box office kinda hit. And that's what they're shooting for but it's been tough and they do decide to stream it i would. You'll still wait for it to get to the theaters or would you watch it. Streamed i think the first time you wanna watch a james bond movie. You wanna watch it on the big screen and theater. One hundred percents sank to even think of watching it. I on television first of all when you watch a bond movie in an audience. I mean there's the whole dynamic going on now to really. Do we really have to go to movies anymore. I mean everything's available streaming baba but that's baloney. I mean you go to the movies for the visceral experience of being in a crowd. That's going to odd just like you are or laugher. Jig i still maintain fifty six years later. Goldfinger in a theater has the same laughs at did back in sixty four thirty when she says my name is pussy galore and he says i must be dreaming audience laughing. You're not going to achieve that in a room by yourself. Come on and of course. They've packed this new bond movie with a lot of stuff. I mean it's it's packed to the gills. It's i think it's over two hours and forty minutes. I mean big big serious. Chunky bond movie which i'm looking forward to. Yeah me too. Can't wait absolutely. I think we may have. I've always said Guys that there are three things certain in life death taxes and james bond movies. I have no doubt that there will be bond movies into the next century. This is the this is the gift that keeps on giving and it's because they've never strayed from it being a family entertainment there. There was a little bit of stray in the second timothy dalton movie a licensed to kill it got to be a little too dark but i think overall there are very few staples in entertainment that have delivered like the james bond movies absolutely true so we talked about some of the interviews. You've done where you've got some of the year facts any of the in the book that you just found absolutely fascinating that you didn't get from an interview and how did you find you know it's very interesting when you watch the movies very carefully and you discover things that you didn't notice before sometimes that makes very good entry. The one that comes to mind. Of course and i probably didn't pay much attention to it when i first heard about when not the obamas ticking down in goldfinger and it's ticks down to zero seven you hear shawn's dialogue three more ticks and mr goldfinger hit the jackpot. Well excuse me sean. It says oh seven and the way it was explained to me by peter hunt was simply that they came up with the idea after the fact and they didn't have time to change the line. Free more ticks stayed in there and there are a few of those in the movie that all the movies that pop up that just you you get the entries from repeated viewing of things. You know things that That don't make a lot of sense. And of course. Peter hunt was always trying to fix continuity errors in the movies. He points to a number of them on thunderball were on his underwater. He takes the black man he loses. Luma takes a black mask and then at the scene later. He's wearing the blue mask again things like that. But that's a whole different ball of wax. But in terms of i get my entries from all different sorts of things from watching the movies from the interviews from the internet. Talking to friends for instance when one of my first book came out. I got a lot of people writing me saying. Would you include this entry in your next edition. Like for instance And i'll look him up right now because this was something. I did not put it in the book. Originally and What happened was one of the bond fans wrote to me and said you should put this in the book. So for instance on page one twelve. I have entry for gary dubin. Who the heck is gary dugan. Well gary dubin. Is that little kid. Who's playing the water balloon. Game with joel. Saint john and diamonds are forever and she wins it real fast. He says. hey wait a second. This game is rigged cushy. Your mother gary gary had a moment i had the they said. Why don't you put gary and there. So i put gary and there's a simply because he's has a great little kid moment. I thought you know the kid at the balloon game. Yeah that's cool. That is great. Yeah i mean from one of the things and it's not. I wouldn't put in an encyclopedia you talked about repeated viewings which you catch out of the one that got me was in doctor no went off and bond get to string ways to find out what happened there. They get out of the car and tough turns towards the street. You actually see the three blind mice walking down. The street in the background was the fifty wing where i caught that going on. Yeah and that's that's that's actually very impressive. Because i think the only thing i noticed in that movie was When they shoot strang ways and see the hearse drives by you can see the reflector lamp in the reflection of the window. I don't know how you get rid of that. But no that's that's great. I have to one of those little things in the background. I'm like wow talk about attention to detail. There's i wonder if they were stalking them. There was no mention of it. There was just in the background. Little little guy you could just see them and it's like oh there's a lot of interesting stuff like that. Look i've been watching. The saint repeats and so much of his bond came out of the saint. Obviously for roger moore but in episodes. I just watched the other night. He's driving a one of the characters in the in. The show is driving a db five. And i stop it i freeze frame. It and i'm looking the license. Plate is b. m. t. to sixteen a side thought. What the hell in reality. That was the first db five produced and it went from the state to the bond movies. That's why has the same license plate number so this is cool and it was originally painted red in the saint. Move in the saint. It's a black white show but it was painted red and they redid it into silver. They said it was a couple of different guy. Was like moon gray silver or something but just like there's a million little facts like that so the more you watch stuff the more you see the more you find out it's fun and the encyclopedias is just like that you open it up and you find something new that you didn't know before also if you're in particularly in love with a certain aspect of bond i try to trumpeted and then you have to refer to the women that way because the women of the bond are so archetypal in they deserve as big splash as possible because From ruining me as a team that they basically have been delighted men and women for decades and i particularly with saddened to hear about the death of Cloudy no jay earlier this year because claudine from thunderball as domino was probably the most striking woman i'd ever seen in cinema and to this day she's still stands out. Yeah she was terrific in that film and much like goldfinger in the goldfinger movie wearing something gold all the time domino in thunderball is mostly wearing something. Black or white or both exact. That's the kind of stuff that's fun. The no absolutely absolutely and you know it's funny. I think the reason for the longevity of the bond movies is is that they've always shaken it up. Shaken not stirred up enough to to really give you something fresh and new and some even though the roger moore films are termed a little too funny for today's tastes because we've gone to more of grittier approach. I think the bond movies of the seventy s were big huge international productions. They were ten polls before tent poles. Were standard yeah. Yeah they were huge. Hits moneywise. I remember being in london in nineteen ninety. 'cause i was doing the encyclopedia at that time. The first edition andy. Bradford took me for a ride on his motorcycle. And bradford was a stunt guy his his claim to fame in the bond movies. He plays double o nine. Who's murdered in the beginning of octopussy. You know he's the one who finds the egg and brings it to the british embassy in east berlin. And i just. I'm not really a bon type person. In other words me riding on the back of a motorcycle for me it was terrifying stunt man driving a little dimension to it there. You go all right steve. This book is fabulous. And as you know we use the book as the basis for spying. Md be database on our websites by movie navigator dot com and the book is available now and it could order today as of right now and so tell our listeners. Why the heck. They should buy this book.

Today's the day that this book releases. So now what do you. What else are you working on. You're trying to sell some scripts and stuff. What else he tried to do. I'm doing every years ago. This predates bond. I was one of the last people to interview. Alfred hitchcock and i have a wonderful interview where he talks about the birds and were animating a section of it right now and i'm developing a series called classic hollywood speaks and it's going to be interviews with classic hollywood flares but they'll they'll be animated. It'll be the original audio. That i pulled from the interview. My interviews will be there but it's going to be a. I'm going to sell it as a series. That's my hope nice. That's going on and then a million things movie projects. Tv projects across all genres. I've got comedies. That got science fiction and helping out a friend with his western got thrillers. Dramas you name it. That's all i do all day. We come up with ideas and see how far we can push them. I'm very proud of a children's picture. Book that i wrote last year with my friend. David miller call the cat who lived with an and we've developed an animated feature. That is the cats story. There really was a cat that lived in the attic and amsterdam and his name was mucci and are animated feature is called mucci.
