We’ve been watching the Sean Connery James Bond movies (streaming free at Pluto and Tubi), which are now over 50 years old, giving them the status of “classics.”
I know, I know, a guilty pleasure, bad influence of the 1960s, negative elements, etc., etc. I’ll concede all that. But it’s interesting to see how far we’ve come and how low we’ve sunk since those times of my adolescence. I remember how shockingly risqué they were then, and yet now the sexual imagery and innuendo seem utterly mild, outdone not only on “family hour” TV shows but on the commercials that advertise on them.
