Rarely seen big budget tribute show
16 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

What a rarity! This 60 minute programme broadcast on England's ITV channel (Thames Television) on 13th June 1983 achieved one of the biggest audiences of the year but, strangely, has never been screened since; nor has it turned up as a supplementary/special feature on any of the Bond film DVD/video releases. Billed as Hollywood's tribute to Britain's most successful film series, it's certainly the most star-studded of the various James Bond TV tribute shows. It featured filmed contributions from, among others:- Burt Reynolds, John Travolta, Al Pacino, Dean Martin, Ryan O'Neal, Farrah Fawcett, Kirk Douglas, Bob Hope, Burt Lancaster, Tom Selleck, Ernest Borgnine, Ursula Andress, Britt Ekland and even.....Frank Sinatra and President Reagan! Possibly not screened since its original airing for legal reasons. I would guess it's residing in the archives of London Weekend Television or Thames Television. Definitely worth watching if it ever surfaces again!
