Eight arms, twelve girls, three villains plus 007 – Octopussy turns 30!
By Helmut Schierer on 2013-06-06
Today it is 30 years since ‘Octopussy’ premièred at London’s Odeon Leicester Square. The first time audiences actually saw Bond crossing behind the Iron Curtain. A film showcasing many jewels, the biggest of which has to be the former ‘jewel in the crown’ – India. Never was a sari used more artistically in a Bond film, never frowned the clown with more explosive business on his hands. A hell of a circus for Bond and a colourful spectacle for audiences. CBners commemorate this unique 007 adventure in this thread.
