Introduction to Bond
14 March 2006 | by cshafferSee all my reviews

If you want to know about James Bond this is the show to watch. Shown on American TV November 1965 to promote "Thunderball" and to explain the world wide"James Bond Phenomenon" that was happening at the time. The first three movies were re-released and playing while "Thunderball" was on the cover of every major magazine. The show has rare footage of Ian Fleming at his home "Goldeneye" in Jamaica where the novels were written. It also has clips from the first three movies and behind the scene coverage of the making of "Thunderball". For younger people who grew up with the newer movies this will give you a different perspective and perhaps a better understanding of Bond.
