Do you understand the meaning of the word spoof? Christ your posts are inane.
Goldginger was an Italian spoof on the Bond series, which starred Euro-cult actor George Hilton as James Bond:
Another Bond spoof that hasn't been mentioned is Mad Mission 3: Our Man From Bond Street, which was a Hong Kong production that has a very "A View To A Kill" type scene at the Eiffel Tower one year before AVTAK came out!
Hm, there are so many OSS 117 movies in the '60s I don't know which one you refer to. But in the four Andre Hunebelle ones (the only ones who are still relatively known now in France, IMO), the humour is definitely intentional. Well, at least on the one I remember most which is :
"Your name is Consuela Moroni"
"How do you know ?"
"I guessed it."
"Do you like children ?"
"Yes, when their mother is pretty"
"What is it ?"
"Mexican champaign, sir"
"And what kind of whisky do you have ?"
"Portuguese scotch, sir"
"We'll take two Brazilian vodkas, then"
But alas these movies are nowhere near Bond or Fantomas (the other movies Andre Hunebelle directed at that time, which are on full humour mode). They're far from being complete failures too.
The only "serious ones" may be the first two, which I haven't seen. Here's an excerpt from the 1956 one I found, it didn't age well :
Well I won't start a debate on OSS117 movies I've mostly forgotten, but Andre Hunebelle is a director of comedies and action/comedy movies, some are slapstick, but some are more subtle. OTT behaviour in OSS117 may not be unintentional once you realise within the same years you find a lot of the team doing also :
Title : "Fantomas se déchaîne" (something like "Fantomas goes wild"). A few years after "OSS117 se déchaîne" !
Which is also a kind of spoof of Bond to some extent (flying cars to escape a chase etc)
Tribute to or spoof of, nothing really works as a Bond film. The Bourne series, which I mostly enjoy, lacks a central character with the wit and style of Bond.
Agreed. In fact in one of my fav movies of the series thanks to its comedic value, outrageous plot and general werdness.
Jean Dujardin has announced he's working on a new Brice de Nice movie, and added very clearly he was ready to do a third OSS 117, hinting others were too. Rumor has it that the pitch is about OSS 117 in the 70s in Africa, and even that he would accept his bisexuality this time :) But this latter rumor was *before* the Skyfall line !
He drove the silver DB5 and Robbie Coltrane was an M like character.
The only bit i remember is Bomb shooting a female love interest when she calls his car a "dick extension..!"
