102: Bond is Back

The name’s Flicks – At The Flicks, and welcome to our James Bond special.

At the Flicks · 102: Bond is Back

In anticipation of the opening of No Time To Die in the near future (fingers crossed), the team look back at the early days of the James Bond films. Team member Elijah has a special ‘Rediscovering the Classics’ as he talks about two movies. From Russia With Love and Goldfinger. Which stands the test of time better and how do they stack up against Dr No (you can find our thoughts on that film in episode 64)? Listen in to find out.

As an added bonus, Warren Ringham, the creator of the excellent ‘Q The Music’, joins us to talk about the music of the early James Bond films. We go from Monty Norman’s score for Dr No through to John Barry’s score for Goldfinger. Even Jeff, our film music specialist, learnt quite a bit listening to Warren. 

So, put on your tuxedo, make yourself a vodka martini (shaken not stirred, of course), and settle down for a wonderful At The Flicks special.
