Gert Fröbe needed all of his dialog overdubbed because his English was horrible and almost non-existent. I would love to hear the original recordings of these scenes.
Nice. Can I try and impress you back by saying Ursula Andres’ song in Dr. No was dubbed as well?
That’s what I’d read. Apparently there was a LOT of that sort of stuff going on in this early flicks. Maria Nixon was the Queen of Overdubing Your Singing back then.
I’ve seen some of the unedited footage from “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” where everyone’s speaking Italian or Spanish, and it’s fun to watch the English speaking actors remember their lines.
Singin’ in the Rain is the one that makes me laugh the most, given the nature of the film. What are you favourite and worst Bond films?
I sort of really hate “You Only Live Twice,” and just about everything with Roger Moore, though I did like “Live and Let Die”. “Tomorrow Never Dies” is one of my favorites, if only because of the supporting characters (Michelle Yeoh, Jonathan Pryce). And people think I’m crazy, but I loved the Timothy Dalton movies, if only because he really was about as close to the literary Bond as they come–though Daniel Craig captures the same feeling.
I feel the same way about Dalton though I didn’t mind the early Moore films. What did you think of Brosnan? I really did like Goldeneye. Die Another Day is the shocker for me.
I liked the first two Brosnan movies, but didn’t get into the last two as much. And Christmas Jones? Worst. Nuclear. Physicist. EVAR! Seriously, someone was high when they put that role together.
Ha! That opening stunt in Goldeneye really is up there for me. I saw it at the cinema. Astonishing.
I saw that in the theaters as well, and it’s amazing. Then again, they usually had the best stunt people working with them.
They don’t make them like they used to!
Ha! It would be interesting to know how many more they will do.
That villains expectations were wrong.
They always are ha. Who are your favourite movie villains in general?
The ones with layers, the ones who don’t want destruction just for destruction’s sake.
Of the best known villains, my favorite is probably Magneto. You?
Hans Gruber from Die Hard probably. So rare to get such a great baddie in an action film.
That’s a good selection, too.
