    And apparently, there was ANOTHER Moonraker film. Directed by Orson Welles to boot.
    So do we add Dirk Bogarde to the list of Bonds?

    Like most people who know a little about these things, I always thought Dr No was the first (not counting the 1954 TV Casino Royale). Well I was wrong. And I was also under the impression that the only Bond film Orson Welles had anything to do with was that other Casino Royale, the 1967 spoof, in which he guested as the villainous Le Chiffre. Wrong again…

    Look in any movie guide and I’ll guarantee you won’t find an entry for a 1956 film adaptation of Ian Fleming’s James Bond novel Moonraker, aka Hell Is Here, directed by none other than Orson Welles.

    An interesting read.

    There was an ad on 'Carrot's Commercial Breakdown' or something like it, way back, which played on that scene and added the braces. They weren't in the film, you were just meant to worry that he was going to eat the girl and then be relieved that he didn't.
    It's late, but something like that anyway...
