Aug 4 Bond Pretitle Sequences: The Man with the Golden Gun

Bond Pretitle Sequences: The Man with the Golden Gun

Simon Pitt | Sunday 4th August 2013

I'm still watching the beginning of each Bond film. Today is The Man with the Golden Gun, another film with gold in the title. A little person called Nick Nack, a man with a supernumerary nipple (they're more common than you might expect) and a waxwork of Roger Moore.


Aug 7 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Live and Let Die

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Live and Let Die

Simon Pitt | Wednesday 7th August 2013

I'm watching all of the Bond pre-title sequences. Finally, I've got through the Roger Moore years, and arrived at the start, the shocking moment, the first gun barrel sequence where Bond doesn't wear a hat.


Aug 10 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Diamonds Are Forever

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Diamonds Are Forever

Simon Pitt | Saturday 10th August 2013

Finally, after the silly Moore years, the suave Brosnan years, the brutish Craig period, and the lumpy Dalton films, Connery, the real Bond, walks into the gun barrel. I've been watching the pre-credit teasers of each Bond film, working backwards from Skyfall. Today is the last Connery film: Diamonds are Forever


Aug 13 Bond Pretitle Sequences: On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Bond Pretitle Sequences: On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Simon Pitt | Tuesday 13th August 2013

I have got up to On Her Majesty's Secret Service, in my quest to watch the opening sequence to every Bond film. Today, the one with the guy who was only Bond once, as someone at work called it.


Aug 16 Bond Pretitle Sequences: You Only Live Twice

Bond Pretitle Sequences: You Only Live Twice

Simon Pitt | Friday 16th August 2013

I'm watching the beginning of every Bond film, up to the credits. Today is You Only Live Twice. Connery is in Japan. A lot. And there's a volcano that opens up.


Aug 20 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Thunderball

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Thunderball

Simon Pitt | Tuesday 20th August 2013

I'm watching every Bond pre-credit sequence. Today Thunderball. And he strikes... like Thunderball. Whatever that means. And whoever "he" is. Bond hits a woman, his car breaks down and he delivers some flowers. It's an action packed thrill ride.


Aug 23 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Goldfinger

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Goldfinger

Simon Pitt | Friday 23rd August 2013

Goldfinger contains, in many ways, the original Bond pre-title sequence. It has it all. A big explosion. A cavalier pun in response to the death of a fellow human being and a belly dancer. Oh and a seagull.


Aug 25 Bond Pretitle Sequences: From Russia With Love

Bond Pretitle Sequences: From Russia With Love

Simon Pitt | Sunday 25th August 2013

Sean Connery is back as Bond. After the success of Dr No, Bond returned. And this time, there was a pre-title sequence. An exciting, action-packed mini-film that sees the death of Bond. Should cinema-goers demand their money back? Is the rest of the film just M wondering what to put in Bond's obituary?


Aug 26 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Dr No

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Dr No

Simon Pitt | Monday 26th August 2013

And so, after 22 films, 22 pre-credit sequences, two toilets, four police chases, two harnesses, two sequences bathed in red light and one duck on a head, I've arrived at Dr No, where it all started. The first Eon Bond film and the beginning of my journey through Bond Pretitle Sequences. But has it all ended in an anti-climax. Dr No doesn't have a sequence before the credits. Or does it?
