Heartwarming: Thunderball

  • M, who in every movie is usually irritated by Bond and always chastises him, backs him up twice. First when Bond says he saw Derval's dead body at the health clinic the night before even though he was also seen on boarding the NATO bomber that went missing. Bond's word is enough for M to initiate inquiries. Later in London when the home secretary grumbles about Bond's search for the stolen warheads in Nassau having appeared to run dry, M stands up for him.
