But you make a fair point. Sean Bean and Diana Rigg, for example, are better known to younger audiences for Game of Thrones. And in your defence, Waltz's Blofeld performance is judged against his Tarantino appearances.
Let's say I'll sleep on the idea
I can't think if any Bond guest actors (other than cameos) have ever referenced their other roles in a Bond movie...? There's no Dracula references in TMWTGG for example.
@Thunderfinger What is the joke? I like the line because of the delivery but never got the joke
Deborah Moore (DAD)
Sébastien Foucan (CR)
I think cameos need a separate thread.
Other famous actor appearances (not sure if they are considered cameos, or just bit parts: Gerard Butler, Charles Dance, Dolph Lundgren, Oona Chaplin
Not sure if "Call Me Bwana" deserves a mention. It's more of an insider joke rather than a pop culture reference
Beach Boys cover?
Frank Sinatra (SP)?
I always took that 'joke' to be a play on the word Blaster rather than Ghetto. As in blasting the music out in the real world or blasting a rocket out of it as a weapon in Bond's world.
Another pop culture reference that comes to mind is the Barbara Woodhouse "sit" gag, completely lost on anyone who didn't grow up in the '80s.
Edit: Oops. I see @vzok's just mentioned that above. I didn't notice that as I'd only read the first page of the thread!
And now there isn t?
There is yes, but now we have 67 million channels you can more easily avoid Barbara Woodhouse.
Maybe you need to be a certain age to get it... when that film came out, great big radio/tape players were popularly called "ghetto blasters" in the USA because their most common use was in just that fashion, blasting out music WAY LOUD on inner-city streets.
Well, the Keystone Kops started in 1912...
It was never a good idea in Bond's world, which is populated by professionals who are at worst middling and rarely outright incompetent. That was true at the start of the series, but by the time of DAF self-parody had set in.
Daphne Deckers who introduce Bond as new banker in Tomorrow Never Dies and doing speach in English/German and be fired by Carver after Bond put Carver speach down. She was interviewd with Desmond about the movie and January 1998 there was special Playboy.
She is Dutch model and actres, wife of the at time fames Dutch tennis player Richard Krajicek. Barbara Broccoli meet them at tennis match in the UK (England).
Her cameo and delay of Titanic (8 January 1998) be part of why Tomorrow Never Dies was moost succesfull movie in 1997 in The Netherlands. She was second Dutch element who work on movie, Dicky Beer stunt guy also.
Earlier this year her daughter Emma (Born in January 1998) get a part in Amazon (MGM) movie with her Australian boyfriend (Oscar ''Fleming'') movie: Natural Disasters.
Gupta was first plan to be played by Belgium actor Jan Decleir.
With Twine not Heineken was suporter, but Grolsh and that brand you not realy see much any more. I have t-shirt with poster 1 (Bond and girl of fire and 007 credit) with logo of them.
I think it does, in line with Another Time, Another Place.
For consideration: maybe group references to other movies. To collect the Close Encounters, The Magnificent Seven, Lawrence of Arabia items as well.
Suggest adding: "Play it again, Sam" as an (incorrect) Casablanca reference.
Good one. Added, and split the movie references.
What Magnificent Seven?
Added Ricky Jay, Martyn Lewis
Same with "Lara's Theme" from Doctor Zhivago used as a ringtone for Anya Amasova in TSWLM.
How about the line "once more unto the breach, dear friends", from Henry V, Act III, Scene I, 1599.
