I'd never noticed Wint and Kidd pressing at the flowers in the Memorial at Slumbers Inc before until about last year. I think I was focusing so much on what Bond was doing that I missed it.
I'll have to keep an eye out for it next time. ;)
Sadly that was off-screen. :)
So at a guess I'd say he ate ....... A lot ! :D
I watched DAF a couple of days ago, and I noticed something - when Bond and Q are talking about the fake fingerprints, via telephone, the Aston Martin DBS is in the background, to the left I think, in Q's lab.
Yes, indeed, and the joke is that they are fitting rockets to it. :)
When in Q lab, the minor character Smithers has a weaponized cast on his arm that breaks away to melee a foe. His real arm is revealed underneath, but it doesn't appear to be the actor's actual arm. It looks disjointed and you can see the actor portraying Smithers move his right shoulder afterwards that moves the cast. It completely baffled me last night!
Can anyone explain?
In the office briefing scene Bond hastily takes out his lighter to offer it to M, but M ignores the gesture... it is a very interesting & subtle way for the director to show 007's deference to his boss.
The very 1st Bond / M meeting is a great scene - with the juxtaposition of Bond’s earlier über-confidence from the casino intro (& then with Moneypenny) in stark contrast to the way he (almost clumsily) tries to win favor with M… a nice little reminder that this man is human after all :)
It looks as if there is a hole in the whiteboard, with somebody else's arm doubling for Smithers!
With another actor's arm as Smithers's right arm ?
Wow, I've also never noticed the lighter offer to M that gets ignored. It's amazing to think that we've all seen these films countless times, yet there are still instances of finding something new in them.
I've finished Dr.No, and look forward to going back through them to see if any more unseen scenes can be found.
Just speaking of the Bond / M scene in Dr.No, it's such a great scene. It's longer than most of the later scenes would become, and you really get a sense of respect in the way they address one another. It doesn't feel hurried, and the two men move around the office without remaining in one spot as also would happen with the later movies. Generally M sitting whilst Bond received his orders.
Having finished Dr.No, I find unlike some of the films, the more I view it, the more I like it. It's a film that if someone asked me to watch it again now, it wouldn't be a chore. It would be a real pleasure.
I didn't know Hell was clear. I thought it had more of a reddish hue.
You can see them between Bond and the Superintendent here. The Superintendent actually clocks them just prior to this shot.
I think @DrGorner has a point here. It seems they did need a place to put the spring in or something. It clearly isn't his right hand, but he does put his left hand over it as if it is.
and this one:
Sure, the context was different, but certainly one inspired the other. Loved both scenes. Something about Bond drawing his weapon in a fancy hotel in a tux with an attractive woman next to him.
Actually that is exactly what went through my mind when I saw CR in the cinema back in 2006... "this feels like Timbo in LTK"
Just odd to me as to why Smithers needs a double for his right arm! It's not clear to me why his own arm couldn't just be under there. Unless Smithers real arm is in the cast and there is no actual mechanism and he is just slamming his real arm against the wall haha
If you look closely during that scene you'll see a newsstand headline about a blazing Land Rover going over a cliff - of course a neat reference to the TLD PTS. :)
