Recently, the James Bond 007 Dosier unearthed these little offensive gems and I thought they’d be worth sharing with AAGG.
Without going into insane detail, the following recordings are from “redacted” audio commentaries originally featured on the Criterion versions of Dr. No, From Russia With Love, and Goldfinger. The commentators are director Terrence Young (Dr. No, From Russia With Love), director Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger), editor Peter Hunt (Dr. No, Goldfinger), and production designer Ken Adams (Goldfinger, Dr. N0).
But why were these commentaries shelved for so long? Well, producer Albert. R. Broccoli felt that the commentators were a bit too frank with their words. In particular, they make some pretty non-PC statements about women that definitely wouldn’t be okay now and clearly wasn’t okay when they were recorded.
