Watch: Revisit 1964 Bond Spoof 'That Man From Rio' Starring Jean-Paul Belmondo

13 July 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Director Philippe De Broca (King of Hearts) directed this spy spoof at the apex of Bondmania in 1964 and transformed easy-going art-house favorite Jean-Paul Belmondo into a box office mega-star. Featuring a fast-paced globe-trotting chase for an Amazonian statue, That Man From Rio is more Indiana Jones than James Bond but French audiences didn’t care, making it the 5th highest earner at theaters that year. Co-starring the ethereal Françoise Dorléac and sporting an actual Bond villain, Adolfo Celi, the film earned an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay. Watch it here. »

19 April 2015 8:28 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Voice actor Robert Rietti has died, aged 92.

Rietti was known for lending his voice to James Bond villains when filmmakers wanted to re-record lines.

According to The Times, Rietti died on April 3.

Among the villains he dubbed were Emilio Largo (Adolfo Celi) in 1965's Thunderball and Ernst Stavro Blofeld (John Hollis) in 1981's For Your Eyes Only.

"In nearly every Bond picture, there's been a foreign villain, and in almost every case, they've used my voice," Rietti once said.

Throughout his career, he also voiced characters in The Guns of Navarone (1961), Lawrence of Arabia (1962), The Fall of the Roman Empire (1964), Doctor Zhivago (1965), Barbarella (1968), Frenzy (1972), Murder on the Orient Express (1974) and Trail of the Pink Panther (1982). »
