Funny thing I noticed about this sequence. There is a bank of 4 TV sets broadcasting the rocket launch at the end of Dr. No and the one in the upper-left is all fuzzy. I assume the TV footage was matted-in in post-production? Was this some error that they had no money to fix it so it stayed? After all supposedly Maurice Binder missed Syd Cain's credit and Cubby gave Cain a gold pen instead of having to pay Binder to redo a portion of the opening titles.
Also I wondered about the footage itself and the announcers. According to the imdb the footage is initially of a Vanguard Rocket and then of a Titan. I didn't noticed the vanguard but I can see the Titan.
And I always was interested in the audio portion of the rocket launch. It does sound like an actual recording of a rocket launch and the imdb goofs section says that mention is made of MA-7 which would mean Scott Carpenter's mission on May 24, 1962 and Mission control does mention an astronaut on board. And what is up with the reporter? Mission Control is obviously a recording of an actual NASA employee but the reporter is rather flowery. Is this from a radio broadcast? Or did TV reporters really say those things on TV?
Oh and does any know what Doctor No says in his final lines? The only thing I understand is "Shut-Down."
