    I got the Lark commercials a bit mixed up there. Cigarette pack detonator was for the pool spy cameraman, not the jungle shack. And here I thought I could fluently speak Lark.

    This one I described was what I remembered from the second advert in this video, at night with the Home Alone-style projector trick:

    Well, Sean Connery as Bond appears on a poster for TB in Last Night in Soho (2021). Does that count ?

    Thanks @Gerard in that case I don't think so. It's Connery as Bond in an Eon film in another film. If that makes sense.

    But that could also be an interesting focus and worthy on its own.

    Didn't DiCaprio's character in Catch me if you can watch GF?

    In Black Widow, Natacha watches Moonraker on her laptop, and seems to know the dialogue by heart.

    And some said the plot was a bit similar to OHMSS (is this true? I haven't watched the film yet)

    No, there's no virus here. Female assassqins, yes, but no viruses.

    He's a lot of fun in that film, although it's sad to watch that scene with the Aston (actually a DB4 and not a DB5) driving on the wrong side of the road after the cabin supposedly fills with smoke: the lady doubling for Roger's love interest was paralysed for life after the Aston crashed head-on into one of the other vehicles.

    I'll have to get around to watching the Cannonball Run films, I'm sure I saw them as a kid but can't remember such event. Was reading recently that the tragic crash forced a change in law where stunt people had to now wear seatbelts during filming.

    Goldfarb with the PP there, not PPK. The PP being in at least three Bond films. And of course, the trick 'bang' gun was in a deleted scene from DAF.

    I guess it's just coming out from behind the gun rather than out of the barrel- I was trying to figure out where they'd got one from! :) Funny that it's clearly Roger's liver-spotted old hand in the close-up, you'd think he wouldn't have done that.

    As shown in another thread, both Sir Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan have appeared with the Muppets, one in the '70s, the other in the '90s, IIRC. With lots of references to Bond, of course.

    Now, I would like to take back this thread to its original purpose and ask a question : What is the common element between TB, DAF, MR, OP and QOS ? Hint : In name only for two of them.

    Late to the party but another James Bond reference, I don't know if this counts, but in an episode of The Persuaders (Chain of Events), there's a briefcase full of James Bond/Ian Fleming Books:

    South America maybe?

    Nope. Try again.

    Element do you mean, wind, fire, earth and water? LOL!

    Sorry being a bit cheeky.

    Is it to do with Africa? I seem to recall MR having a reference to "the African job". Bond in DAF says "I've always fancied a trip to South Africa" plus later on in Circus Circus the gorilla transformation mentions Africa.
  • Posts: 5,882
    No, not Africa, but you're close. ONe clue : I've already mentioned the connection given that for two movies, it has something to do with France, but not in plain view.
  • Posts: 5,882
    All right, one more clue : It would have been easier to spot the connection if I didn't mention TB and QOS, and I should perhaps have added GF to the list.

    Does he drink Champagne in them maybe?
  • Posts: 5,882
    Nope. But it starts with the same letter.

    I don't think it's what you're looking for, but I guess GF, DAF, MR and OP all have circuses in them. Not sure about TB and QOS though, or the French link.
  • Posts: 5,882
    And we have a winner, ladies and gentlemen ! Indeed, circuses are what I was looking for. To start with, indeed, DAF, MR and OP have circuses in them, two of them being visited by Bond. GF has Pussy Galore's Flying Circus, but I didn't mention it because it's not a real circus, with clowns and animals. As for the other two, both TB and QOS feature characters who hae the same names as famous french circuses : Pinder and Medrano.
