Last Link of the Day: James Tont: Italian James Bond Knockoff

In tribute to this week’s Shouts From the Back Row podcast about James Bond, here’s a brief spotlight on one of the most blatant 007 ripoffs you’ll ever see. Once the Bond films attained huge popularity in the 1960s, there were a HUGE plethora of copycat spy movies made all over the world, one of which was this very bizarre Italian knockoff called James Tont: Operation Goldsinger, which doesn’t appear to bear any resemblance to Goldfinger whatsoever. In fairness, it’s possible that this was intended as a parody of Bond films since the trailer features a shot of James Tont (played by an actor named Lando!) escaping from the bad guys by flushing himself down a toilet!
