TB suits me- as long as you guys don't mind me having virtual orgasms at

(a) John Barry's music

(b) Connery's sheer presence

(c) Luciana Paluzzi

In fact, I'm afraid that my whole contributions might be "Oh yes" "Again" and so forth

Re: AJB live commentary on TND

TB is full of scenes of simply Sean Connery walking. You'll see it on watching the movie. Terence Young and Connery were inspired by John Huston's The Maltese Falcon which is similarly full of scenes where Bogart simply walks across a room. The idea was that this would show you (the audience) what kind of man he was without dialogue- and above this the dialogue in both films is witty and characterful.

Being correct doesn't change.

And the good thing about this is that, if we can only get the walk right, any of us can be James Bond - with some John Barry mood music playing in our minds as a background score!

I remember going to my cousin's wedding reception and realising that the disco I was dancing to had been set up in that room (or perhaps it was the matching one upstairs)!

Same location as Layer Cake (starring our Dan) and that Goldfinger film of course.

Edipus??

'Edifice complex'. It's a pun on 'Oedipus complex', but nods towards him building big edifices to himself in the form of huge buildings with his face on.

No Bond girl does action better than Wai Lin

She really, really should have come back in DAD for a cameo.  I know they looked into doing it but it really should have happened.  I think she had great chemistry with Brosnan and her character held her own throughout the entire film (only getting 'damsel in distressed' at the very end because Bond).

If you pause the documentary on the DAD disc you can read a page or two of her planned appearance when they show a close up of the script.

Looking back, TND has some really good dialogues!

„His job“ comes to mind or „I‘ll be right back“
