Cast & Crew
If Thunderball's gimmickry seems to overreach at times, Actor Connery gains assurance from film to film, by now delivers all his soppiest Jimcracks martini-dry.
There's visible evidence that the reported $5.5 million budget was no mere publicity figure; it's posh all the way.
The fourth Bond, marking the point at which spectacular hardware began to dominate the series. Sleek and quite fun all the same.
The color is handsome. The scenery in the Bahamas is an irresistible lure. Even the violence is funny. That's the best I can say for a Bond film.
Classic 007 -- not the best picture in the long-running series, to be sure, but a more-than-worthwhile diversion for the action-loving escapist in us all.
