Adjacent Meridian Point,
Shot in sunny Thailand, The Man With The Golden Gun (UK/PG/125mins) was Roger Moore’s second outing as James Bond, and the man is clearly having a lot of fun with Ian Fleming’s suave MI6 agent.
If Sean Connery looked like the sort of man who could happily kill you with his bare hands (a trait recently reignited by the casting of Daniel Craig in the iconic role), Moore liked to raise his eyebrow rather than his fists. Not that he didn’t have to give a series of minions and cartoon baddies (in this case, Christopher Lee’s Scaramanga) a good seeing to, of course, whilst making sure a conveyor belt of beautiful women were left shaken and a little stirred.
The plot? Bang, bang, chase, smooch, bang, chase, bang, BANG!
As part of The Whale’s Great Night Out series, the plan on Saturday, November 20th is a slap-up meal at Camile (including a complimentary drink) kicking off at 6pm and 007 parachuting onto the big screen at The Whale at 8pm. For the movie and the meal, it’s €30, and there will be a limited number of movie only tickets at €10.
So, put on your Sunday finest, and make sure you have that gun lighter tucked somewhere safe, for one Bond party galore
