This is the newest installment in my “Bond in Context” video series, where I take you though the historical context of the James Bond movies in order. This one involves Thunderball from 1965, a decidedly mixed bag of the early series.

If you missed the other videos in this series, here they are: Dr. No (1962), From Russia With Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964).

Here is the original trailer for Thunderball.

The poster from Thunderball is copyright (C) 1965 by Eon Productions. I believe my inclusion of it here, and images in the video from the movie, are permissible under fair use.
