    i am a A level media studies student and i’m doing an essay exploring the shifting representations of bond girls.

    who do you prefer? the classic Honey Ryder or the new Vesper Lynd? how do you think the women in the films have changed? do you think they have?

    any comments would be greatly recieved!

    When Bond is hiding with Andress behind the sand dune and the dude shoot the sand in front of them you hear richochet noises. Also, a bb gun would stir up more sand than the big gun the guy on the boat was using. The bullets would have gone through the sand and creating a huge "explosion" of sand.

    Still, for the time it was made it was pretty good.

    I realize that when Bond let the rope that was towing their boat at the end slide into the water, that it was supposed to be so he and Honey could be alone to get jiggy in the boat, but if u think about it, that was really dumb because they had run out of fuel and would drift out into the open ocean with no way to get back to shore. Good one, Bond. Lol.

    I seem to remember there was a chessy TV movie in 1980s that stars an female agent using Bond gadgets. For life of me, I can’t recall the title. Please help me to find the right title.

    Has to be THE most jarring scene in any Bond film that I can recall. Bond knew and even said to the Prof after he grabs the gun on the floor he’d just used to try and murder him ‘That’s a Smith & Wesson, you’ve had your six’ then proceeded to shoot him, TWICE! Once face to face, and once in the back to finish him! He was unarmed (The Prof’s gun was empty) so it was an execution, plain and simple!

    It’s a great scene, and still quite shocking in my opinion.

    Suprised nobody has ever commented on it before?

    When they get to the island, the black guy in red shirt just runs around bond and the girl like a dog, sniffing various things, leading the way…and then for no reason he gets killed like a dog as well – probably cause he was no longer needed in the movie.gotta love racism in old movies – its so innocent!

    I recently watched Dr. No again, and knowing that most of the women’s voices were dubbed by Monica van der Zyl, I decided to pay close attention to Miss Taro’s voice. Common knowledge claims that Zena Marshall, who played Miss Taro, was one of the few women not to be dubbed in Dr. No. However, Ms. van der Zyl claimed that she dubbed all of the women except Moneypenny and a Chinese girl. There are three Chinese women in the movie: Miss Taro, Sister Rose, and Sister Lily. Any one of them could be the "Chinese girl" alluded to by Ms. van der Zyl. At least one of the two nurses (Sister Rose or Sister Lily, I forget which one) was clearly not dubbed, but the other might have been. However, going back to Miss Taro, her voice sounded suspiciously like Ms. van der Zyl’s voice in some scenes, though not necessarily all. Is it possible, then, that Miss Taro might have been at least partially dubbed? Is there any proof out there for or against my theory?

    Hello, and welcome to my revisiting of the James Bond movies, Part 1: Dr. No. As this is the first part, I will tell the ‘backstory’, so to speak, here.

    When I was 11, back in 2002, thanks to the 007 video games and the 007 Spy Files magazines (Google those if you don’t know what they are), not to mention my primary school friends were already Bond fanatics, I wanted to start watching the Bond movies. Being still very much a child at this time, a lot of the mature themes and suspenseful nature came off as boring. Nevertheless, I continued to watch all the Bond films from Dr. No to Die Another Day, somewhat out of order, over the next couple of years, and have still not watched either of Craig’s movies (Die Another Day almost put me and my father to sleep, and by the time CR came out I had lost interest in 007).

    I would also like to mention that these entries are divided into two parts: what I thought of the movie when I first watched it, and what I think of it now. Subsequent entries of this series will be found on their respective boards, so the From Russia With Love review will be found on the From Russia With Love board, Goldfinger’s on the Goldfinger board, and so on. And finally, all entries will contain spoilers, the warning shall be displayed in the subject line of this one only, and at the top of the page for all others.

    What I thought of Dr. No then (late 2002):

    I cannot remember which Bond film I watched first, but I watched this one early on. As stated in the introduction, the mature themes went over my head, it was all a bit drawn out for my liking, and I ended up falling asleep towards the end where Bond is in the nuclear reactor.

    What I think of Dr. No now (25th January 2010):

    Personally, I think for the very first Bond movie, it was very well made, and I can only imagine how audiences in 1962 would have reacted to it. The action scenes don’t look dated (if Dr. No was made today, the explosion of Crab Key would be all CGI and look dated in 10 years IMO), Ursula Address as Honey Ryder makes for a fantastic first Bond girl ;), and Joesph Wiseman (R.I.P.) as Dr. No makes for a great first villain.

    I also liked the tarantula scene, which also does not look that dated to my eyes. The title sequence cleverly segued into the start of the movie itself with the "three blind mice" (won’t spoil that here) :P.

    Overall, I’d give Dr. No an 8/10.

    Stay tuned for the second entry, From Russia With Love!

    Wiseman, who played villain in 1962 ‘Dr. No,’ dies

    NEW YORK — Joseph Wiseman, an actor who played the sinister scientist and title character of Dr. No in the first James Bond feature film, has died. He was 91.

    Wiseman, who had been in declining health, died Monday at his home in Manhattan, his daughter, Martha Graham Wiseman, told The New York Times and Los Angeles Times.

    A screen and stage actor, Wiseman’s film credits include "Detective Story" (1951) and "The Unforgiven" (1960). He also had guest roles on television shows "Law & Order," "The Streets of San Francisco," "The Twilight Zone" and "The Untouchables," according to The New York Times.

    He is likely best known, however, for his villainous role in "Dr. No," the first in a long string of James Bond movies. The 1962 film introduced Sean Connery as James Bond and also starred Ursula Andress.

    Wiseman was born in Montreal on May 15, 1918. He moved to the United States with his family when he was a boy.

    According to the Los Angeles Times, Wiseman started acting when he was a teenager, getting his start in summer stock.

    In 1938, he was given a small part in his first Broadway play, Robert E. Sherwood’s "Abe Lincoln in Illinois."

    Wiseman’s other Broadway credits include "Joan of Lorraine" (1946), "Antony and Cleopatra" (1947), "Detective Story" (1949); and most recently in the stage adaptation of Abby Mann’s film "Judgment at Nuremberg" (2001).

    "Stage acting was what he wanted to be remembered for," Wiseman’s daughter told the Los Angeles newspaper.

    What’s the story behind the dragon tank? On the documentary "Inside Dr. No", they say a tractor was used for it, but in the book "The Essential Bond", they say it was a swamp buggy. So which one was it?

    They were exceptionally original and even now they look cool. I like the ‘Three Blind Mice’ bit, the silhouettes against a coloured background of three figures walking. Then in the next sequence revealing them to be blind beggars walking along a road, (actually assassins), and the calypso song that went with that.

    Ok, so yes I like the movie, think it’ really good, etc. That being said, as few movies are perfect, did anyone else think it was a bit of a glaring oversight that no one on this tropical Island had any sort of accent? Clearly they filmed on location and thankfully they didn’t just use white actors in blackface but why didn’t they make an effort to cast actors with native accents? Would have given the movie much more credibility imo.

    I’m gonna have to say, Ursula Andress is beginning to look like "Cat Woman" Jocelyn Wildenstein. I don’t know if she’s had plastic surgery or not, but she really REALLY looks like her face has been pulled taut.

    Yes, I’m a guy who has never seen a single bond movie in his life. That’s about to change though, because I really want to start watching the series. So what I want to ask you 007 experts is, should I watch the movies in the chronological order they take place in (starting w/ casino royale) or in the order they were released(starting w/ Dr. No)?

    I know many people grew up watching them in release order, but since I’m starting fresh I wondered if it would be more interesting to watch them chronologically.

    .. is the most folish thing to do.

    It´s like, you would replace your old 8-track car-radio with a cassette-player to get some great sound.

    (Although that´s not the best example, since 8-tracks are at least kinda cool, but you know what I mean)

    Don´t you think, it´s funny, that the lame-ass PPK was one of just a few things, that were identical in the books?

    Dude, Flemming didn´t know a thing about guns.

    But the film-makers were even worse.

    In the book, Bond was given the PPK and a Smith & Wesson 38 Special (which isn´t much of a man-stopper as well, but yet better than the PPK)

    Later he was smart enought to take the 38 Special to the island, not the pocket-gun.

    Do you remember, when Boothroyd looks at the Beretta and goes "Nice and light… in a lady’s handbag."?

    As if the PPK would have been the Desert Eagle of the 60ies.

    "Walther PPK, 7.65 millimeter, with a delivery like a brick through a plate-glass window"

    Ever tried to break any plate-glass window with a brick?

    It´s not working

    Couldn´t the film-makers have given Bond at least the .380 ACP?

    By the way, is it just me or is it really a Walther PP with the longer barrel instead of a PPK in some scenes?

    I know, it´s a FN Browning 1910, when Bond kills Dent, but I think it´s a PP in some other scenes.
