I found out from HULK VS JAMES BOND that they actually got Johnny Cash to record a theme song for Thunderball, and it’s FREAKIN AWESOME. But then they scrapped it and went for a much less cool version by Tom Jones. I guess they didn’t think Johnny Cash’s style was, uh, suave enough for James Bond?
But seriously, listen to this! They shudder at the fury of the mighty Thunderball (Thunderballlll!)
I wonder how fresh this all smells.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.
These are some fun fucking facts
We go forward.
