Thunderball (1965) is the fourth spy film in the James Bond series starring Sean Connery as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond with the theme song performed by the incomparable Tom Jones. The film follows Bond's mission to find two NATO atomic bombs stolen by SPECTRE, which holds the world to ransom for £100 million in diamonds. The search leads Bond to the Bahamas, where he encounters Emilio Largo, the card-playing, eye patch-wearing SPECTRE Number Two. On this recorded version of Thunderball, virtuoso trumpet player Scotty Barnhart knocks the horn solo out of the ball park! Charlotte Smith has matched the drama of this song with this stunning black and white gown from The Darnell Collection which would not be out of place on Domino (Claudine Auger) at the Kiss Kiss Club!
