Topic: Choose Your Own 007 World Travel Tour

You are offered an all-expenses paid, world class tour to visit all the locations - both real and fictitious (e.g. underground lair or w/e) from a JB film. Everything is taken care of, you will be treated like royalty.

The tour lasts for 2 months, with locations sensibly spread across that time (roughly equally). You can take a +1 with you if you'd like.

THREE QUESTIONS

1. Which ONE film would you choose?

2. Which film would you choose if you could also meet the characters relevant to each location? They exist as they did in the movie, but they are all nice and friendly - may even give you gifts, so villains won't be a problem.

3.
Which film would you choose if it also allowed you to TIME TRAVEL back to the relevant year that the film happened to take your holiday? It's still a regular tour as above. Once its over, you return to the present time - nothing you do will affect the space time continuum.


Choose!

Space perhaps?

Re: Choose Your Own 007 World Travel Tour

It's quite a complicated topic now that I've tried to think of an answer myself ( ajb007/lol ), and I don't remember all the films that well.

So I'm going to cheat and use this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_J … _locations

1. Moonraker.

Originally I was thinking Casino Royale because it has a good spread of locations, but I think space is a once in a life-time opportunities. I could probably do the others on my own time. Its tough though, I'm sure there are many other secret bases I'm missing out on.

2. Live and Let Die

Hopefully Solitaire has something useful to tell me.

3. Goldfinger (1964)

I wanted to pick an early film to see what it was like back then, but also one with different countries to see (my original choice, Dr No, only in UK and Jamaica).

This one covers US, UK and Switzerland

Re: Choose Your Own 007 World Travel Tour

Interesting proposition KP and so difficult to choose. I would have to go with the following;

1. Which ONE film would you choose?

Would have to be MR. A lovely trip around Venice, a nice weekend stay at Vaux-le-Vicomte (with personal hospitality from Corinne), A wonderful trip to Rio and then the icing on the cake, an adventure into space!

2. Which film would you choose if you could also meet the characters relevant to each location? They exist as they did in the movie, but they are all nice and friendly - may even give you gifts, so villains won't be a problem.

Probably GF. Would be great to handed a DB5 to use, take a round of Golf with the affable Mr Goldfinger. A lovely continental drive across Europe to visit his factory (he might give my gold bar as a souvenir). I'm sure Oddjob would be fun and Pussy would be very accommodating. All topped off with a trip to the White House to meet the President (a nice one!)

3. Which film would you choose if it also allowed you to TIME TRAVEL back to the relevant year that the film happened to take your holiday? It's still a regular tour as above. Once its over, you return to the present time - nothing you do will affect the space time continuum.

I'm tempted to say late seventies, early eighties the era of my childhood and such happy memories of holidays, so probably FYEO in that regard. However, It would be nice to venture further back to an era that seemed to be the height of good living and all the trimmings, so I would have to say 1969 OHMSS.
