Even if they were looking for me, we're on a stealth boat! They can't see me. Or, you. Or, even - your friend, the late Commander Bond.
"(Wai Lin) My government knows you're out here. They're looking for you.
(Carver) Not according to our radar, where it seems your MiGs are about to attack the British fleet in...Gupta, how many minutes?
(Gupta) Nine minutes to firing range.
(Carver) And even if they were looking for me, we're on a Stealth boat. They can't see me, or you, or even your friend, the late Commander Bond, who is, I believe, at this moment on his way to the bottom of the South China Sea. He's my new anchorman."
That's the one, well done! Carver is the only main baddie to appreciate 007's rank :D
(Oops, sorry, I thought your post was directed at me, @mtm ...but MI6HQ was faster while I was composing my own answer. So good luck, @MI6HQ !)
To whom the Union Jack Ski Parachute (that's later used in TSWLM) idea came from?
MI6-HQ site trivia.
"The famous Union Jack parachute ski jump stunt during the pre-title sequence was originally suggested by George Lazenby to be used in 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969),' but the necessary equipment to film it was not available then. The Bond producers thought it was a great idea, and later added the Union Jack to the parachute and used it in this movie [i.e. TSWLM]. It has been noted with that scene's climax, James Bond's status with the people of Britain changed from being simply a popular character who happened to be British to an iconic British hero on par with King Arthur, Robin Hood, and Sherlock Holmes."
Yes, you've got it right! @j_w_pepper
OK: Who was the first actor to drive the Aston Martin DB5, registration BMT216A, on screen (including TV)? And what was the colour of that car at the time? (I'm sure we've had this on this board, but we also have a lot of new members.)
Mind you, I expect he wasn't actually driving it!
In which James Bond movie (1 - 25) can you read the name of a current (2023) head of state quite clearly? And of course, who's the one?
PS: It may help if you check my most recent activities on other threads.
Anyway, feel free to give it a try on my suggestion or post another one, in which case I'll post the solution to mine for universal enlightenment.
I'm struggling otherwise...
By the way, I just noticed that there is still the problem that the new entries to this thread do not cause the thread title to change to bold. Maybe this is why this thread has pretty much ceased to exist, as compared to former times?
I don't know whom to contact about this probably technical problem. Can you help somehow, @Benny, @Creasy47, @DarthDimi...or whoever?
