4 thoughts on “When Howard Hughes Was Central to the Plot of a James Bond Film

  1. I suspect the Goldfinger link is why the early scene where Bond shows off his knowledge of diamonds parallels the scene where he talks to M about gold in Goldfinger.

  2. It would have been hilarious if they had Hughes the way he was back then, all long stringy beard and hair and Fu Manchu nails with Kleenex boxes for shoes, side-by-side, tossing jars of his own urine at Blofeld.

  3. Oh man, can you even imagine that? Broccoli would supply Hughes would copies of each of the Bond films when they came out, imagine THAT awkwardness.
