South Africa TV - 'Thunderball' on ETV, Sunday night

23-Jul-2010 • Media Alert

Movie: "Thunderball" (1965)
Channel: eTV (South Africa)
Date: Sunday 25th July
Time: 21:55

Sean Connery is still getting a kick out of the role, but he`s less the suave spy and more the man of action. Adolfo Celi makes a worthy opponent, but Claudine Auger is one of the least memorable Bond girls. Director Terence Young never quite solves the pacing problems posed by filming underwater, but John Stears`s Oscar-winning special effects more than compensate. May be edited for violence.

Director: Terence Young
Main Cast: Sean Connery, Claudine Auger, Adolfo Celi, Luciana Paluzzi, Rik Van Nutter, Martine Beswick

Thanks to `Cmdr. Bond` for the alert.
