Geoff T's James Bond-a-Thon #4
Also known as the underwater Bond film. I noticed Thunderball doesn't get much love around here, but I've always thought it was very underrated.

Anyway, SPECTRE is at it yet again, when after Bond takes out Colonel Bouvar in a particularly memorable pre-title sequence, Emilio Largo (now second-in-command of SPECTRE) sets up the theft of two deadly atom bombs that are retrieved in the Bahamas after a NATO flight…
