Look out! Here comes the biggest Bond of all! That’s what the poster proclaimed when Thunderball hit the screens in 1965. And there was a lot of truth in that advertising. When SPECTRE operative Emilio Largo steals two warheads from a NATO plane, it’s up to 007 (Sean Connery) to penetrate the villain’s lair, retrieve the warheads and save the world from destruction. Filled with exciting action on land sea and air, Thunderball and its Tom Jones sung theme is one of Bond’s best!
