Never Say Never Again Collector's Edition DVD Review
The year 1983 was strange, but interesting for James Bond fans. It saw the release of Octopussy, starring the then current EON Productions' James Bond, Roger Moore, but it also saw the release of Never Say Never Again, starring original Bond Sean Connery. The film is a loose remake of 1965’s Thunderball, which producer Kevin McClory and screenwriter Jack Whittingham had successfully sued Ian Fleming over after he did not credit them for their contributions to the Thunderball novel. The title of the film came from Connery’s wife, Micheline, after Connery vowed he’d never play the role again. While McClory wanted to film a new Thunderball adaptation for much of the 1970s, further legal action prevented the movie from being released until 1983.
