Dr. No - Bond 50 Box Set Blu-ray Review

And the James Bond bonanza goes on …

It is only fair and fitting on his 50th anniversary of cinematic world-saving that we take a loving look back upon 007’s bold debut back in 1962. While the world and his dog is currently going spy-crazy for Skyfall – and quite rightly so – it is actually something pretty special to go back and see how it really all started for MI6’s globe-trotting, bed-hopping, mission-accomplishing super secret agent.

Not a reboot this time … it’s the real deal. It’s Connery. It’s Ursula Andress in that bikini. It’s one of the most insanely catchy theme-tunes ever conceived. It’s three blind mince, a fire-breathing dragon … and that bloody tarantula.

It’s Dr. No, everybody!

Just thought I'd post this article about Peter Hunt's editing methods. The tiny frame skips you mention were deliberate:-

Cutting to the Chase - A Technical Look At Peter Hunt's Editing Style

Interesting stuff and pretty well known.

But they're not the frame skips I was referring to, sadly. These are definite little hops in the film that do not seem intentionally placed. They are slight and there's only a precious few of them and, in truth, I probably made them sound worse than they actually are.

I don't have the time right now to go back into the disc to have a look. But I will and report back.

Cheers though.

Chris McEneany :devil:
yes, watched this on sunday and i did notice these 'skips' which i assumed were edit points that happened mid scene/take. i.e. two takes of the same shot, halved and edited together to make one whole. it that makes sense?
