Great special!
9 February 2008 | by CATMAN-6See all my reviews

I have wonderful memories associated with this show. My best friend and I(both 11 years old at the time) watched it at his parents' house on their color TV. I think it was shown on NBC and it was probably a Friday night.

I'm not sure if we'd ever heard of James Bond, but after watching, we became instant fans. Our parents bought us many James Bond toys; road race set, board games, figurines, attaché cases, etc. My friend even got all the Ian Fleming novels in hardback. When his mother was out of the house, we'd look at them and get excited over the racy parts.

We never got to see a Bond film back then. We lived in a small town with only one theater and if a Bond film ever played there, we didn't get to see it.

The first Bond film I ever saw was "Goldfinger." I seem to remember it was in '72 or '73 and it was on ABC Sunday Night at The Movies."
