Failure of recollection and don't have the DVD to check, so, please, kindly, remind me how they DID show Bond and Blofeld finish things off with each other in NSNA. ? ? ? The best I can do to recall the ending has more to do with the actor who later would portray Mr. Bean and with the spectacular and oh-so-lovely KIm Basinger, and Bond (well, Connery...) winking at the audience. As for the penultimate scene...I just remember explosions, etc. And, yes, I am quite pleased that I got to use that 10 cent word. Not one I often get to throw around.
OK, apologies. I just refreshed (thanks, Wikipedia)...I was remembering Bond and Largo at the end and, of course, as in TB the novel and film Domino dispatches of Largo...I am QUITE surprised the filmmakers even contemplated Bong polishing off Blofeld in NSNA !!! The "rogue" producer would have killed his primary villain ? Odd, because I've read that McClory entertained thoughts of remaking TB over and over, with changes, of course, but re-using the source material and his rights to it. Hence, it would have been good to keep Blofeld around.
I get the feeling someone already cited written material on this topic in an earlier thread, which I missed. Many apologies to all...

It does sound rather good, actually! Blofeld calling Largo on a videophone saying "Come in Largo! Come in Number One!" only for Bond to pick the call up and say "I'm afraid you have the wrong number. This is 007"? That's great!

Kind of amazed nobody here had read the CINEFEX in question, I've been reposting the Dryer quote about Blofeld being scratched by the cat in various places for years.
