Once upon a time, there was an actor. He was in the biggest film franchise in history, but he wasn’t happy. He thought that those who hired him were taking advantage of him. At the same time, one of the stories he was acting might not have been written by the name who man who said he had written it. Together, the real author and the disgruntled actor would team up to make a film to compete with the franchise.
Today I have the story of the Thunderball saga and how two James Bond films were released in the same year. All this, an more, in the 190th episode of Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff.
