“THE SEAN CONNERY BOND CANON Part 2: GOLDFINGER & THUNDERBALL” webinar via New York Adventure Club!
Though Daniel Craig, Pierce Brosnan, Roger Moore and other great actors have played the iconic James Bond 007 role over the decades, the majority of Bond aficionados still consider the first, Sean Connery, to be the definitive James Bond. And of his seven Bond films, the first four—Dr. No (1962), From Russia with Love (’63), Goldfinger (’64), and Thunderball (’65)— are considered not only his best, but perhaps the best of the entire Bond series.
Join New York Adventure Club as we explore the third & fourth Connery Bond films (with the first two covered in last week’s webinar), which are the beginnings of the modern action film genre, instituting and incorporating so many signs, symbols and scenarios of that most unique decade of the 20th Century, the 1960s.
Hosted by pop culture historian Arlen Schumer, this multimedia overview of GOLDFINGER and THUNDERBALL includes pertinent clips from each film, behind-the-scenes production pix & films, and rare advertising and promotional materials!
