James Bond heads to the Bahamas to recover two nuclear warheads stolen by S.P.E.C.T.R.E. Agent Emilio Largo in an international extortion scheme.
James Bond's "Gieger counter" watch is a modified Breitling Top Time Ref. 2002, manufactured in 1962. It was the only one produced for the movie and the only Breitling watch ever used in a James Bond movie. The watch disappeared during filming and remained a mystery, until it surfaced in 2013 at a "car boot" sale (British flea market), where it was purchased for a mere twenty-five pounds sterling. Once Breitling and several experts verified its authenticity, it was then sold at Christie's Auction for one hundred three thousand eight hundred seventy-five pounds sterling (one hundred sixty thousand three hundred eighty-three U.S. dollars).
The coffin - it has your initials: J.B.
Bond: At the moment, rather him than me.
Madame LaPorte: At least you've been saved the effort of removing him. Colonel Bouvar passed away in his sleep, so they tell me.
Madame LaPorte: You sound disappointed you did not kill him yourself.
When Bond initially arrives and passes through Moneypenny's office after almost being attacked on the road he is wearing a dark blue blazer, a light blue shirt and gray trousers.When he speaks with M in private to discuss his mission he is inexplicably wearing a brown suit. Actually, M is also in different clothing from the conference, indicating some time has passed. This makes sense as there were a lot of people to brief. The mistake is that Moneypenny wears the same clothing in both scenes.
The documentary "Behind the Scenes with Thunderball" shows part of the original opening credits with the unused "Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" theme song. The credits design is identical to the final film.
