clzoomer- a bit woobly

I work periferally in the film industry and Apple has made a point in the last dozen years or so to provide free Macs as props for lots of productions. Independence Day and Mission Impossible are two good examples. Have you noticed how in some of these films the screen doesn't match the operating system? Just another thought.

All Jeff would have had to do in "Independance Day" was upload an early version of Quicktime. That would have crashed any non-Apple system!

She is a statuesque actress who was in some of the "Carry On" films and most notably kept a bikini and a Connery busy in "Never Say Never Again".

I don't know if she minds, but I haven't gotten slapped yet!

Are you sure that wasn't the Moore Bond movie made the same year?
The one with Maud Adams, "Octopussy?"

Anyway, Valerie's character was a peripheral one, who had no real part in the plot. I assume that since the whole thing was a bit of a send up of the series, Connery got to put some friends in.
There is one marvelous scene where Sir Sean, clad in nothing but a pair of overalls that Valerie had been wearing in the previous scene, crosses a Hotel lobby barefoot, with a bathrobe clad Valerie at his side!

Oh, that's right!
The sloppy gag in the massage room at the spa!
That wasn't sun tan lotion.

I think it was some kind of 30wt French mineral oil.

It doesn't really matter. It was just an excuse for a sorry gag that embarrassed both parties needlessly.
