C (J- - IN A PAKULA-MULLIGAN PRODUCTION 'V the story of what they did awakis ENGAGEMENT STARTS Action Galore in Thunderball,' but Cinematically It's a Dud BY PHILIP K. SCHEUEIt Times Motion Picture Editor James Bond movies, I suppose, should be taken no more seriously than Pop art or comic strips. They are conceived as entertainments for adults, though they are not really adult, and children enjoy them equally (which makes it seem too bad that the producers never can resist throwing in that extra little patch of blue material). The latest, "Thunderball," will be a Wednesday arrival at the Chinese Theater. It is the same as its predecessors, only more too much of everything, from sudden desire to sudden death. The tone of the whole affair, the tip-off to "don't believe a thing you're going to see and hear," is sounded in the first minute or so when Bond, in the person of Sean Connery, outsmarts some would-be assassins (Who are they? Who knows? Who cares?) by simply soaring into the air, propelled by what a program note calls a one-man jet pack. Once past the credit titles, Bond and we are off on the new "plot." Well, what's up this time? A top-secret atomic plane, that's what hi-jacked by a planted pilot paid by SPECTRE, sunk at sea without a trace and held there for ransom by NATO. Waterlogged This picture is unique in that almost as much of it must have been shot underwater as above the former, presumably, at Ivan Tors' glassed-in studio in Florida and the latter in the Bahama Islands. The submarine sequences are as pretty as can be in Technicolor, featuring besides fish and flippered bipeds, all sorts of awe mm mm -gjir-" mm I 1 n i i: a- . . m. -m Screenplay 6y GAVIN LAMBERT-Produced by ('Directed by ROBERT MULLIGAN PANAVISION PACIFIC'S PAIMTAGES THEATRE HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD BLVD. nr. VINE HO. 9-2211 some diving bells and pow-. ered sea slsds not to mention an arsenal of. lethal spear guns. If I could have just known more than half the time what, precisely, they were doing, the effect would have been ' prettier yet. Fortunately, when the terrific but overdrawn undersea battle occurs in the closing reels, the opposing forces paratroopers on our side and SPECTRE minions on theirs come in two different colors, so at least we can tell who's who. Hydrofoil Prop My favorite prop this time anyhow, my favorite BIG prop is a hydrofoil boat which, manned by the enemy, suddenly sheds its stern like a butterfly its cocoon and takes off hell-for-lather on its own. My favorite floozy? Hard to say, since they're all fully packed and nubile and nimble, come and go with bewildering speed. The principal one appears to be Claudine Auger (Domino); bikinied others are Luciana Paluzzi, Mar-tine Beswick and Molly Peter6. My favorite zinger is that delivered nonchalantly by 007 when the one he has been dancing with in a Nassau night spot is shot from a wicked - looking silencer. Bond deposits her carefully in a ringside seat and murmurs to the other occupants, "Do you mind if my friend sits this one out? She's just dead."
