TV4 Bondfilm 18 december Never Say Never Again (1983)  Sean Connery

http://www.007museum.com/never_say_never_again.htm

James Bond matches wits with a charming but sinister tycoon who is holding the world nuclear hostage as part of a diabolical plot by SPECTRE. Connery’s return to  the world of Bond after 12 years is smooth in this remake of ”Thunderball”  hampered by an atrocious musical score. Carrera is stunning as Fatima  Blush. Although Connery is back, purists will have qualms considering this part of the ”official” Bond series since longtime Bond          producer, Albert ”Cubby” Broccoli, had nothing to do with this endeavor. Sean Connery is back for his final performance as superagent James Bond in this high-velocity action thriller from the director Kevin  McClory..

When two atomic warheads are  hijacked by the evil SPECTRE organization, Agent 007 is hurled into an          explosive, pulse-pounding race to save the world from nuclear   terrorists!

Never Say Never Again is NOT considered one of the official Bond films. The ”official”  Bond films are made by MGM/UA and at least one Broccoli. Never Say Never Again was made by Warner Bros and no Broccoli’s worked on it. In fact, the film was released at the same time as Octopussy as a rival. It was a  remake of Thunderball. That is not to say that it wasn’t a good movie, just not one of the ”official” series.

Bloopers

  • In the pre-title sequence, as the Acrostar flies through the          warehouse, you can see if you look carefully enough the pole upon          which the mock jet is impaled on.
  • When Vijay is ”fishing” (while James is with Octopussy),          his shirt is 2 buttons shy of being buttoned to the top. When the          intruders sneak attack him from front and behind, they rip his shirt 4          buttons down and nearly to the navel. Then when Gobinda walks down the          steps and looks at Vijay, his shirt is back to being buttoned 2          buttons from the top. Then, when we look at Vijay from the vantage          point of the goon with the buzzsaw, we see Vijay’s shirt is unbuttoned          3 or 4 notches again.
  • During the film’s climax, the stuntman doubling for 007’s parachute          can clearly be seen when the wind blows open his jacket. Later, when          Gobinda falls off the plane, you can clearly see the orange straps of          his parachute underneath his jacket as he spins away.
  • The pre-title sequence with the Acrostar plane was originally          intended to be a Little Nelly type battle sequence in Moonraker          and was to take place above the Angel Falls in Brazil. It had to be          scrapped when the falls’ river bed dried up
  • Octopussy’s island was located in Udaipur, India. It was also known          as the ”City of Sunrise”.
  • Magda was an animal trainer, a jockey, and even a race car driver,          before she became an actress.
  • When Octopussy talks about Bond’s background with her father Major          Dexter Smythe, that story is actually the whole plot of the Ian          Fleming short story, ”Octopussy”.
  • The Faberge egg auction sequence was in the Ian Fleming short story,          ”Property of a Lady”.

      Magda Played by:   Kristina Wayborn
Description: At first glance, Magda appears to be one of Kamal      Khan’s henchman after she sleeps with Bond and steals the Faberge Egg.      However, it is later revealed that she is in fact a member of Octopussy’s      Traveling Circus and helps lead the attack on Kamal Khan’s palace during      the film’s finale.

Octopussy 1983        Magda (Kristina Wayborn)          Britt -Inger Johansson          Born: Sweden, Nybro 

From Faberge perfume to Faberge eggs, from Ingmar        Bergman to James bond, Kristina        Wayborn who plays the enigmatic Magda        in Octopussy 1983         has seen it all.
Born in a small town Nybro, nearly deserted Baltic Sea island off        Sweden`s east coast, Kristin Wayborn maintained an academic record of        top honors while also developing some very unusual skills. Britt -Inger        Johansson ,
Kristina        Wayborn         was a Swedish track champion, running 100 meters in 11.3 seconds. Asa        lark, she decided to enter a light-weight arm-wrestling championship        contest which she won. She has been a race car driver, a jockey and        horsetrainer,a wild animal trainer, a clothes designer, and she takes        more than a passing interest in gourmet cooking.

Wayborn was spotted by famed        Ingmar Bergman while performing a play and subsequently trained with him        for three years at the Royal Academy in Stockholm.         This was not enough acitivity for Kristina        Wayborn, so she        studied to become a veterinarian as well. But she never to forgot her        desire to come to Hollywood and become a respected actress.

As a teenager on her first        trip to the United States, Wayborn sent pictures of herself to top        modeling agents in New York. Shortly thereafter, Faberge invited her to        their office and promytly signed her to an exclusive five-year contract.        This took her to Hollywood, but she was put off by the exploiers who        were only concerned with her looks and nother talent. After appearing in        the televison movie ”Victory at Entebbe” in 1976, she returned        to Sweden, and learned that DavidWolper and Stan Margulies were going to        film Greta Garbo`s life story for  television, Ingmar        Bergman suggested to Wolper that he meet Kristina, so she flew to        Hollywood once more and landed the part.

When Albert Cubby        Broccoli was casting for Octopussy 1983,         he remembered         her sensitive portrayal of the legendary Garbo and invited her to play a        starring role in the 007 epic. Wayborn said ”It`s a wonderful        picture to be part of and I couldn´t be happier. The costumes are        wonderful and the action which involves me is exciting and dramatic. The        director, John Glen allows me to do a few minor stunts-which have always        interested me-and I have been able to perform some very athletic scenes        without the use of a double”         Filming one fight scene, Wayborn sent a stuntman to the sick bay with        the unexpected power-punches she landed in his abdomen.

Octopussy swe Uppdrag
Den brittiska underrättelsetjänsten upptäcker att någon försöker smuggla ovärderliga
juveler. James Bond blir inkopplad och spåren leder till Indien där den vackra
smuggeldrottningen Octopussy har sitt residens på en ö enbart bebodd av kvinnor.
(Ön Lesbos Grekland).
Ett mycket lockande resemål för Bond som inte direkt avskräcks det kvinnliga könet.
Juvelsmugglingen visar sig vara en täckmantel.
En krigsgalen rysk general planerar att föra in och spränga en
atombomb i Västtyskland, för att sedan lägga skulden på USA och starta ett nytt världskrig.
Svenskan Kristina Wayborn spelar den förföriska Magda.
Samt det fanns med tre Bondbrudar.
