Goldfinger remains my favorite. ButI have to admit thatall of the Bond Films are unique and all are fun.
James introduced me to the Vodka Martini and the concept of cool gadgets. He epitomizes style and the use of wit under pressure.
Kudos to Hollywood for keeping an icon alive and well. 007 came alive in 1953 in written form the year before I was bornand with Dr. No in celluloid form in 1962 which I saw at the old Norris Theatre.
I have to admit that I switched to knock-offs like Our Man Flint and to THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. but only for brief stints. Besides the list of one liners in endless like…
Bond: Who would want to put a contract out on me?
M: Jealous husbands, humiliated tailors, outraged chefs. The list is endless!
That’s my boy-
