Computer translation: Walther PPK is a great cancer of Germany which Bond carries in place of Beretta which had been patronized for many years in M instruction.
Translator Mark Schreiber explains: In Japanese, "gun" and "cancer" are typically written identically in katakana
Schreiber: "Yellowtail" is a type of fish, obviously mistaken by the computer for buri, which is a suffix applied to pretense or affected behavior.
Computer: I wonder whether noticed though it is a winning type of the Academy Award of this year, BGM of Sean Connery which appears as a presentater was James Bond Theme. I wonder whether saying for instance that James Bond Theme is used for BGM when it is Roger Moore to do this post. Maybe, it is likely not to become like that.
Schreiber: When Sean Connery was named to receive an Academy Award this year, I wonder how many people noticed that the orchestra struck up the "James Bond 007 Theme" as he walked to the stage. If it had been, say, Roger Moore who had been called to the stage to receive an Oscar instead of Connery, would the same theme have been played?
Somehow, I doubt it.
Computer: Teeth of killer "Jaws" whom Stromberg employed are made of steel by which a strong key is bitten and can be cut. The installation of teeth of this steel is accompanied by the pain, and says that five minutes were limits in acting by which these teeth are put up Richard Kiel of the giant who performed Jaws.
Schreiber: The teeth of "Jaws," Stromberg's giant henchman, are made of steel and supposedly so strong he's able to bite through a thick metal key. Wearing these was quite painful for Richard Kiel, who played the role of Jaws, and it was said the longest he could wear them when shooting a scene was about five minutes.
Computer: If James Bond is a modern myth, Bond girls stand out as goddesses. Ursula Andress who went up from the sea had shot the shine to divineness putting on a white bikini by the first work Dr. No as Ian Fleming described in the original, "Venus's Birth" of Botticelli is made to be thought. Bond girls keeps being given a momentary dream making the crack crack man recuperate eyes as a sex symbol in each age and exists since then.
Schreiber: If James Bond is a modern myth, then the Bond girls must stand out as goddesses. Ursula Andress, who rose out of the sea clad in a white bikini in Dr. No, evoked the image of a goddess and was described in Fleming's novel as evoking Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus." Since then, the Bond girls in each era have, as sex symbols, continued to capture the glances of admiring males.
