Re: Charles Gray/Blofeld?

When you've watched Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 DAF looks like a master piece of cinema.

Seriously I can't believe how wrong they got it with DAF, they had all the ingredients there from Goldfinger:
Connery
Hamilton directing
Shirley Bassey
John Barry score.

Yes, in many ways it looked like it could have been Goldfinger II, but instead we got a James Bond film on an LSD trip.  ajb007/crap

8 years later...

I watched DAF the other day for the first time. Sure Gray was a strange choice for blofeld. But the fact that he also played Henderson in YOLT has to make this one of the most confusing casting decisions in film history!

Casting agencies weren't a thing in the 60s? I'd love to hear of the rationale behind that decision

Cubby liked him, simple as that. It was much the same with Joe Don Baker years later since he was friendly with the family.

They'll be resurrecting Bond girls next.
