The insipid repetitiveness of the Bond films is starting to get to me: both Thunderball (1965, US$141.2 million at the worldwide box office) and You Only Live Twice (1967, US$111.6 million at the worldwide box office) end with Sean Connery entwined with a woman in a raft that is floating out in the middle of some body of water. The variations are slight (e.g. in Thunderball Bond and Domino are in the Atlantic and in You Only Live Twice Bond and Kissy are in the Pacific). What was the point of bringing in Roald Dahl to write the screenplay for You Only Live Twice?
