Looking at Dr No ...

Those first three Bond films DR NO, FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE and GOLDFINGER were amusing again over the holidays as yet once again they are dusted off and shown on television, it seems we never tire of them. These first three though are endessly fascinating - I got rather tired of the Bonds with the next one and didn't bother with most of them, though THE SPY WHO LOVED ME was fitfully amusing at the time, and the Grace Jones one, but Bond was rather passe until Daniel Craig came along in 2006 .....
One always finds a new amusing quote to enjoy in these, as here in DR NO when Bond first meets Honey Ryder collecting shells on the beach: She says: "Are you looking for shells too?" and he casually replies "No, I am just looking" .... as we too gaze at the stupendous Ursula:
