Never Say Never Again

Other mistake: When Fatima Blush intentionally water-skis straight up the ramp to the waterfront bar where James Bond catches her, she apologizes, "How reckless of me! I made you all wet!" To which Bond replies with his classic line, "Yes, but my martini's still dry." However, Bond's beige sport jacket (which should instantly show any water stains) is not in the least bit wet.

Audio problem: When Bond and Domino are dancing the tango, we hear Domino ask "What is it you're after?" but her lips don't move. (01:17:40)

Q: Welcome back, Mr. Bond. I trust there will be lots of gratuitous sex and violence occurring.

Question: Sean Connery took dancing lessons for 11 years in his youth, and he surely knew how to dance when he made this film in his 50s. So, why is his choreographed tango with Kim Basinger in this film so painfully, embarrassingly awkward and heavily edited? Is this perhaps due to the fact that Kim Basinger had virtually no dancing skills?

Charles Austin Miller

Chosen answer: Neither is a professional dancer. Having studied dancing some thirty years before does not mean someone has retained the same level of skills. As you mentioned, Connery was in his 50s by that time.
