His name is Bond; James Bond! Welcome to Episode 18 of “Reel Chat” – a podcast that guarantees week in, week out – the “Reel world as we know it.”
On this first episode of our “50+ Years Of Bond” retrospective series, host Adam Stolfo is joined by co-host Brose Avard, Andrew McCaskill and the returning Matthew O’Neill to discuss the very first cinematic outing of the legendary super-spy. Today “Reel Chat” is retrospectively reviewing 1962’s “Dr.No” – the first chapter of what is probably the longest continually-running film series in history.
Join us as we discuss Bond’s origins, the perfectly charismatic performance of Sean Connery (the best Bond), the historical significance of the famous “Introduction to Bond” scene, the amazing production design of Ken Adam, the pristine-looking Blu-Ray release, the character-defining music of Monty Norman (how good is that name!?), as well as… *coughs*… that famous Ursula Andres bikini shot.
Only 23 films left to go guys! Let’s be honest… they’ll probably be more by the time we get there! Enjoy 007 fans!
