Watched GBU title sequence Friday night on Turner Classic (host didn't say anything at the beginning about the 2004 restoration, maybe he did at the end).

Anyway, has anyone commented that just before the end of the opening title sequence that there is a still of Tuco shooting a cannon that does not appear in the film?  I know Cigar Joe has posted a nice topic showing the reconstruction of this cut scene, with Tuco firing a cannon back at Blondie.


Almost like the title sequence of Goldfinger that includes one helicopter scene from "From Russia with Love".

I believe it has come up in the other thread about the Tuco-cannon sequence. I was watching the title sequence today and I didn't notice any images of deleted scenes other than this one.

However, it's a shame the MGM SE DVD/BD menu includes images from FAFDM.  Angry

Just so that it's available to anyone reading the thread, the title sequence is available on the great Art Of The Title:

Interesting Cusser. I always noticed that shot of Tuco, from and early age but it never clicked with me that it might have been from a deleted scene. I don't think I knew about deleted scenes until relatively recently.
I'm a big Bond fan too and always wondered why that helicopter scene found its way onto the sexy Margaret Nolan's body. Also on there is a brief deleted scene that used to confuse the bejesus out of me. I think it is from Q's lab?

You've got me thinking about Dink now....... Good old Dink!

I liked Jill in Goldfinger; same actress was in Ten Little Indians (Shirley Eaton?).

And remember, gal from beginning in Dr. No (the one at the casino and later putting) also was on picnic with 007 near beginning of From Russia with Love, so believe only gal to actually last over to next film.

Yes I believe the original idea for Sylvia Trench was to have her re-appearing throughout the series as Bond's bit of stuff but they abandoned the idea.
Great set of pins and a sexy wonky eye

Eunice Gayson was Terrence Young's friend and had the gig as long as Young was at the helm. When he stepped away from Goldfinger, she was gone.

so wouldn't that have meant she came back for Thunderball?

I didn't know if I should start a new thread, so I'll just ask here.

Does anyone have any information on how they did this title sequence? It's a cool effect, I'd like to know the method behind it.

Not necessarily. A) The climate may have changed by then (Young was no longer THE Bond director, so the producers may have been less inclined to indulge him); B) Gayson might not have been available; C) In an already overloaded production, it may have seemed impossible to find room for her.

It's much easier to find work for your friends when you are making a modest-sized picture. When you are making a multi-million dollar film in which your producers consider themselves your creative partners, certain freedoms may go out the window.
