Behind the scenes with the Bond film that defined a decade "Thunderball".
25 March 2000 | by DeLorean-4See all my reviews

This is a Behind the scenes look at the film that set the pace for James Bond as we know it. Thunderball is truly a Bond classic, before Star Wars, and the common summer blockbusters that have become common in our lives there was Bond....James Bond. This Behind the scenes look at Thunderball gives you a feel that your in the directors chair with Terence Young. It takes you from the filming of big budget action scenes in exotic locales. To ad campaigns and trailers for the release of Thunderball. If you enjoy James Bond 007 films this behind the scenes glimpse on how they are made is truly a treat.
