    I read that he dubbed his own voice for the German release, so at least he got his own voice in one edition of the film.

    Reading some more over at IMDB, i don't know how accurate this is but it says this.

    A few scenes in the final cut of the film feature Gert Fröbe's real voice and not Michael Collins' dubbing.

    The line, "Except crime!" at Auric Stud is one example, but more obvious is the dialogue spoken just after Bond escapes from his cell. Goldfinger's line, "The underworld will rock with applause for centuries" is Fröbe's original voice, as is the line, "It can be, I think the expression is, blown!"

    I wonder how Michael Collins and the post-production supervisors could miss something as simple as that.More interestlingly, I was watching a comparison between the original mono mix and remix of Thunderball, and found something interesting: On the original mono version of Thunderball, the original voices of Adolfo Celi and Claudine Auger were left alone.

    I believe that you can hear Gert Frobe's real voice in the trailer. Compare it to the same scenes in the finished film.

    Daniel Craig does nothing for me. He has that constipated look all the time, and his humorless take on the role makes Timothy Dalton look like Roger Moore. As for Skyfall, it made sure we weren't going to have anything but more dreariness in the future by blowing up the DB5. The Bond films have become imitation Bourne flicks, and I'd rather watch the originals.

    Could be worse... could be raining or 1989 to 1995?

    : )

    I'm glad to see another one on the way.

    True. Could be Michael G. Wilson writing and John Glen directing.

    I think that's part of a general trend. Blockbusters used to be fun, now they're miserable and grim. Bond has become a morose alcoholic and the last Superman movie was primarily about genocide. It used to be that part of the appeal of the Bond films was living vicariously through the character - but, really, who would want to be Craig's Bond?

    I liked the comment on that other site that Skyfall was just a remake of Crocodile Dundee 2, that did make me laugh.

    Watching a view to a kill tonight. It does seem that this film transfer appears a bit softer than octopussy. I am curious to see what fox and MGM do with the bond film transfers for 4k. I'm sure they will issue at least a few of them on the format.Would've been nice for them to have mastered them all at 4k scans rather than just the connerys and a few others.
