Original Title: Thunderball
When a British Vulcan bomber is stolen with two atomic bombs on board, James Bond is one step ahead of his fellow agents when they are assigned to track down the aircraft. S.P.E.C.T.R.E. then announce that they have the plane and will detonate the bombs unless 100 million worth of uncut diamonds are delivered. He tracks the plane down to the Bahamas but still has to deal with the deadly Emilio Largo.
James Bond continues on his fourth mission, with his aim to recover two stolen warheads. They have been taken by the evil SPECTRE organization. The world is held hostage and Bond heads to Nassau. Here, he meets the beautiful Domino and is forced into a thrilling confrontation with SPECTRE agent Emilio Largo, on board his boat, the Disco Volante. Will 007 prevent the killing of millions of innocent victims?
Terence Young returned for Thunderball at the height of the 007 craze, but this fourth Bond marks the first signs of the polish of the Eon formula becoming glazed. Young blamed the underwater sequences which dictated their own – inevitably more languorous – pace, although the muffled thud of the harpoons as they puncture the bodies they slam into gives it a nasty edge.
The more cluttered script in Thunderball may lack the clean narrative line of its immediate predecessor Goldfinger, but there is plenty to enjoy. If the baddies are not quite so grotesque, Adolfo Celi has a powerful feral malevolence and Luciana Palazzo a voluptuous sexuality heightened by her refusal to succumb to our hero's charms (composer John Barry even awards her a musical legit motif of her own). She's got much more sexual electricity than Honour Blackman in the previous film, or indeed of main heroine Claudette Auger in this one. Young generally handles sex better than other Bond directors. Although the clichéd shots of Connery and Auger embracing underwater don't much work, the final shot in which they whisked into the blue yonder by a USAF rescue-plane has a rather magical quality.
But it's also the first film where the gadgets begin to intrude. The protracted hijack and ditching of the Vulcan bomber, and the climactic underwater battle, means Connery is either not on screen or is semi-recognisable in a wetsuit, reduced to merely an operator of the propeller-back-tank.
Other scenes - such as the Shrublands health farm and M's office - are pretty mundanely handled by Young. The fleeting reappearance of the Aston Martin, shot from only one angle in the short chase with Lippe's car, suggets there wasn't enough covering footage for the editors to assemble into something better. Meanwhile, clumsy continuity and poor colour grading intrude (Young only just escapes a disastrous lapse with Connery pictured in long shot with Rik Van Nutter's Felix Leiter at the casino before the script has them meeting next day).
But Ted Moore's photography makes good use of the Bahaman location, all hard azure sea and white beaches. His handling of the Junkanoo carnival chase (one of the best sequences in the series) is a riot of exciting vibrant colour. Apart from the main theme, Thunderball boasts some of John Barry's wittiest music, notably his pounding calypso score for the Junkanoo chase, repeated for the climatic fight on board the hydrofoil. Only designer Ken Adam is constrained by a screenplay that doesn't call for a single large elaborate set, although the MI6 conference room is rather elegant. The traction-device in the health clinic, although even more sexually allusive, lacks the outré frisson of the laser-beam in Goldfinger.
And the climax certainly delivers. Even if the matte shots used in the fight in the hydrofoil's cabin – as it skims precariously between the reefs - are quite blatantly speeded-up the resulting action is as vicariously exciting as Connery's battle with Robert Shaw in From Russia with Love, a furiously cramped bout of kicks, scuffles and bone-breaking blows, with music and editing used to maximum effect.
Thunderball is an example of a Bond film that starts out interesting, but turns boring and excessive towards the end. Thunderball suffers from its over-emphasis on gadgetry, becoming too campy to bare. The films attempts at being more serious with other scenes just creates an uncomfortable contrast that doesn't enhance the film in any way.
The villain's plot in its intricacy is interesting to watch, but after that everything falls to pieces in the fashion of Largo's speed boat. The film is made slightly interesting by a larger cast of supporting characters, but the over-all weakness of the plot, backed by a rather disappointing climax makes this a very flat Bond to watch.
Even Connery's typical charm can't save the film from it's excessiveness. This goes to the bottom of my Bond-film list along with 'Man with the Golden Gun'.
Terence Young takes advantage of every situation in his direction to maintain action at fever-pitch.
When a British Vulcan bomber containing to two nuclear warheads is stolen by one-eyed SPECTRE agent Emilio Largo (Adolfo Celi
) and a ransom of £100,000,000 is demanded (or he will detonate them in the UK and US), the head of the British Secret Service, M (Bernard Lee
), sends "00" agents around the world in an attempt to locate the warheads. Agent 007 James Bond (Sean Connery
) requests assignment to Nassau based on a recent photo of Dominique "Domino" Derval (Claudine Auger
) and her brother François (Paul Stassino
), who just happens to have been the pilot of the hijacked plane. All of the James Bond movies are based, in some part, upon novels by British author Ian Fleming [1908-1964]. Thunderball is based on Fleming's 1961 novel of the same name. It was adapted for the screen by Richard Maibaum and John Hopkins. Thunderball was remade in 1983 as Never Say Never Again (1983)
. Both movies starred Sean Connery
as Bond. Thunderball is sung by Welsh singer Tom Jones. A "thunderball" is a series of explosions that happen within the mushroom effect of a nuclear explosion. The term actually arose during nuclear testing in Nevada. In the movie, "Thunderball" was the code name of the operation to recover the atomic bombs. When Bond and the rest of the 00 agents are briefed on the hijacking of the atomic bombs in the MI6 conference room, M tells them "You may now open the folders in front of you." A close-up shot follows of Bond's hand breaking a paper security band around a file folder with "Thunderball" printed on it. M then says, "Code name - 'Thunderball'."Yes. SPECTRE has stolen two NATO nuclear bombs and is holding the world ransom in exchange for £100 million or it threatens to destroy an unspecified city in either England or the U.S. (It turns out to be Miami, Florida.) SPECTRE stands for "SPecial Executive for Counterintelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion." SPECTRE is an international terrorist organization run by Ernst Stavro Blofeld ( Anthony Dawson
). Its members are recruited from the Gestapo, Smersh (the Russian spy organization), the Mafia, and the Union Corse among others. With the exception of Goldfinger, all of the Bond villains from 1962-71 came from this organization. Blofeld gave MI6 specific instructions to make Big Ben strike seven times at 6 PM if they agree to meet their demands, but the striking is not actually shown. However, at Pinder (Earl Cameron
)'s place in Nassau, Bond hears a news bulletin on the radio that says it did happen. The misstrike was attributed to mechanical failure. Bond is driving the silver 1964 Aston Martin DB5 that was presented to him in Goldfinger after the destruction of his Bentley in From Russia With Love. Connery has a tattoo on his right forearm, dating from his youthful service days in the Royal Navy. The tattoo reportedly reads "Mom and Dad" and "Scotland Forever." Baccarat. The game is featured several times throughout the run of the Bond series. In the original Fleming novel Casino Royale the card game between Bond and Le Chiffre is also baccarat. In the 2006 film the game is changed to Texas Hold 'Em poker to reflect more modern times. No explanation was given in the movie as to what might have happened to SPECTRE agent Emilio Largo (Adolfo Celi
) to cause him to wear an eyepatch. The best explanation is that the character didn't seem particularly menacing, so the eyepatch was added to make him look like a dangerous master criminal instead of a middle-aged man that 007 could beat up in less than ten seconds. Dom Pérignon is an expensive brand of sparkling champagne produced by Moët et Chandon, an exclusive winery in France. It is named after Dom Pierre Pérignon [1638-1715], the Benedictine monk who developed the method for preventing refermentation of bottled champagne (which can result in explosion). Bond's other signature drink is a vodka martini, shaken not stirred. That was Junkanoo, a Bahamian street parade that occurs in Nassau and many other towns across The Bahamas during the dark hours on Boxing Day (26 December) and again in the early morning hours on New Year's Day. In the movie, however, some of the marchers are carrying signs saying Happy Easter. Largo transfers the bombs from the Vulcan onto the Disco Volante. Domino (Claudine Auger
) activates the geigercounter that Bond gave her (in order to detect when the bombs are aboard, but Largo catches her. He tortures her with cigarettes and ice to get her to reveal how much Bond knows. Meanwhile, the Disco Volante stops at an underwater cave near Miami where the bombs are going to be temporarily stored, but Bond intercepts them so that Largo ends up storing just one of the bombs in the cave. He then heads toward Miami, leaving Bond stuck in the cave. Felix (Rik Van Nutter
) homes in on the homing device that Bond swallowed earlier and pulls him out with a helicopter. As Bond goes back in the water to catch up with the Disco Volante, Felix alerts the Coast Guard, and they send in divers to intercept the boat. Bond and the divers catch up with the Disco Volante, and a long underwater skirmish takes place. The SPECTRE frogmen are eventually overpowered but not before Largo escapes on the Disco Volante with one bomb still aboard. He jettisons the cocoon so that the boat can move faster, but he doesn't know that Bond is hanging on underwater. Bond climbs aboard and incapacitates the crew while the boat drives on uncontrolled and at high speeds, several times nearly missing the rocks. Just as Largo is about to shoot Bond, Domino shoots Largo in the back with a speargun. Then they notice that the boat is headed straight into the rocks but the steering is jammed, so Bond and Domino jump overboard just in time. The boat hits the rocks and explodes. Bond and Domino climb into a rubber raft. In the final scene, they are picked up by the sky-hook of a U.S. Navy airplane. Disco Volante is Italian for "Flying Saucer" and is the name of Largo's ship. The book introduces SPECTRE and its members are numbered randomly (Largo is taking his turn as No.1), and they take an active role in their operation. Blofeld (No.2) is described as an overweight man with a black crew cut and does not have a cat. Blofeld kills one operative for having had sex with a hostage, instead of as punishment for embezzlement. Largo is a young, fit, brown-haired man with both eyes. Domino is Italian and her full name is Dominetta Vitali. Her brother's name is Giuseppe Petacchi and the plastic surgery/impostor plot was added for the film. The pre-credits sequence, shark pool and clay-pigeon shooting scenes, MI6 agent Paula and villains including Fiona Volpe, Vargas and Janni are also not in the book; nor is Q or the Aston Martin. Updating means the plane featured in the film is a real-life Vulcan bomber. Leiter in the novel has his disabilities (including a hook hand) from the shark attack in Fleming's Live and Let Die, and he and Bond explore in a seaplane not a chopper. A single US Navy submarine conducts the final assault on the Disco, rather than a fleet of ships and paratrooper-frogmen as seen in the film, with Bond and Leiter leading only a small group of volunteer divers armed only with makeshift spears. SPECTRE's target in the novel is a Bahamian rocket base. When Domino shoots Largo with the speargun at the end, they are underwater in the book and she shoots him in the neck rather than the back. Yes. The film's story was supposedly fleshed out by Fleming, along with British producer Kevin McClory and writer Jack Whittingham at Fleming's home in Jamaica. However, when Fleming wrote the book on which the film is based, the latter two got no credit. McClory sued the film's producers and Fleming, whose ordeal in court led him to a premature death. The settlement to McClory was over £80,000 GBP, plus the rights to Thunderball, which he used to re-make the film as Never Say Never Again 18 years later. Yes, this is the first Bond film in which a Bond girl is actually seen taking her clothes off on screen. Molly Peters, who plays the beautiful blonde nurse Patricia Fearing, has the distinction of being the first Bond girl to be shown stripping off all of her clothes - specifically her nursing uniform and her panties - for the audience to see when Bond has sex with her in the steam room. Tiger sharks. If you look closely when Bond lets them pass while he's underwater, they have stripes on the dorsal sides of their bodies that are a darker grey. The writers gave them the name "golden grotto" sharks to make them more mysterious & to connect them to Largo's evil personality. Including Thunderball, Connery made seven movies in which he played James Bond: Dr. No (1962)
(1962), From Russia with Love (1963)
(1963), Goldfinger (1964)
(1964), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967)
(1967), Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
(1971), and Never Say Never Again (1983)
