Behind the Tuxedo of 'Thunderball'

  • The Cinema Museum 2 Dugard Way, Lambeth London SE11 4TH United Kingdom (map)

Starring Sir Sean Connery, Thunderball (1965) is one of the most acclaimed James Bond films, but it’s also the most controversial –thanks to the legal disputes that surrounded its release.

Writer Luis Abbou Planisi has published two books on James Bond that include interviews with Dame Judi Dench, Caroline Munro, Martine Beswick, John Glen and Valerie Leon among others. Luis will introduce Thunderball and talk about his latest book, published last December.

After the screening, Sylvan Mason –daughter of screenwriter of the film, Jack Whittingham–, fellow author Robert Sellers and Bond girl Martine Beswick will join Luis for a Q&A about the film, Sylvan’s father and Bond.

Doors open at 18.30, for a 19.00 start. Refreshments will be available in the licensed cafe/bar.

Tickets may be purchased from Billeto, or direct from the Museum by calling 020 7840 2200 in office hours.
