From novel: Thunderball by Ian Fleming

The SPECTRE organization hijacks two nuclear warheads in-flight with the intent to extort 100 million ransom. Following a lead, James Bond ventures to the Caribbean where he encounters Domino Derval, sister of the pilot deemed responsible, and her husband the wealthy Emilio Largo. Over-the-top yet somehow taking itself seriously. The extensive underwater scenes won that year's Oscar for Special Visual Effects. Theme song sung by Tom Jones.
