    Here's another clue : Part of the link made an appearance in CR '67, of all places.

    Interesting. Could have to do with Vladek Sheybal who was a friend of Connery and played his brother in a film. Or with Caroline Munro. I'll keep thinking.

    Nope, no actors involved, apart from the third movie.

    Happened outside of Bond- so not to do with the content of the film? Something political?
  • edited December 2020 Posts: 4,846
    No, not political. Here's another clue : Lions, Harrison, Police and Dictator.

    Something that happened in other, non-Bond, films? Props getting reused or something?

    Indeed, that's something that happened in other movies. Or rather for other movies.

    All right, I'll give you another clue : Awards.

    Halle Berry got an Oscar, but it wasn't to do with actors I think you said, and I don't have a clue how that would connect to police or dictators. I don't know.

    You're close. Just remember that actors are not the only persons to receive awards.

    The composers won awards? Makes sense for Lions but I'm not aware of Arnold winning much.

    Is this something only these Bond films share and no others?

    Almost there.

    The singers won Oscars or sang Oscar-winning songs?
  • Posts: 4,846
    YES !!! Let's recap :

    Matt Munro (FRWL) later sang the theme for Born Free :



    As you know, not only did this song win the Academy Awards, but it was used in CR '67 (the scene with the lions).

    Carly Simon (TSWLM) won the Oscar with "Let the River Run", the song for Working Girl (with Harrison Ford) :



    And Madonna won twice with "Sooner or Later" (from Dick Tracy) :



    And with "You Must Love Me" (from Evita) :



    She's one of a handful of female singers who won twice, BTW (the others being Judy Garland, Doris Day, Barbra Streisand, Irene Cara, and Céline Dion ; Jennifer Warnes won three times).

    And note that I specidified "outside of Bond", because if not, we would have to add SF (which deserved it) and SP (which didn't).

    The field is yours now, MTM (and best wishes to Mimsy).

    That is not easy! :)
    I think Simon is the only one who actually won an Oscar, the others just sang songs which won Oscars.

    Okay, my question is: which Bond film features the wife of a movie star who appeared in movies with three actors who played Bond in the films?
    It’s a kind of two part question :)

    Is it the actress who appeared in movies with three Bond actors or her husband?

    With no comma after "movie star", it is clearly not the wife.

    Then my guess is DAF’s Jill St. John, wife of Robert Wagner who played alongside Sean Connery in The Longest Day and also starred in The Pink Panther with David Niven and Peter Sellers.

    That's not the one I'm thinking of (I should probably have said official James Bond!) but that's certainly a good answer :)

    Interesting round! I guess we need another clue.

    Gosh okay, well the movie star is a British one, and his wife appeared in the Bond film before they were married.

    I would say think of movie stars who have starred with three Bonds! :)

    Thanks for the clue! But I think we need some information that helps us to do online research. Seems like no-one here can answer this from memory or thinking...

    It's hard because it's kind of all there... he's not an obscure actor! :) Just find a British movie star who has co-starred in three films with three separate Bond stars.

    It's actually four films because he appeared in two films with one of the Bonds, although they only shared scenes in one of them.

    Maybe Julian Glover who appeared with Connery in 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade', with Moore in FYEO and with Dalton in 'Wuthering Heights'?

    That's a good one, although I don't think Eileen Atkins or Isla Blair have been in a Bond film, have they? Although Blair would have been great!

    I'm thinking of an even bigger star.

    Maybe Christopher Lee who appeared with Moore in TMWTGG and Trottie True, with Brosnan in Death Train and with Craig in The Golden Compass?
    But again I've found no Bond appearance of his wife.

    The guy I'm thinking of has never been in a Bond movie.
