24. June 2013 06:42 by m | 0 Comments

Despite recruiting Christopher Walken as the villain and Duran Duran for the theme song, A View To A Kill has always been one of my least favorite James Bond Films, and Siskel & Ebert were not impressed with it either... [More]

OHMSS - The 1976 ABC TV Version

18. June 2013 05:05 by m | 0 Comments

In 1976, ABC gave new meaning to the words "Edited for Television". Believing that the first hour of On Her Majesty's Secret Service lacked enough action to keep viewers from switching channels, they took it upon themselves to re-edit the movie, presenting action scenes from later in the film at the very beginning, and then "fixing" the continuity problems by adding a narrator. You have to see it to believe it. [More]

Or that the parrot seen briefly in the safe house kitchen scene used to belong to Bond girl Diana Rigg and was the same bird seen in For Your Eyes Only? Or that the on screen composer at the end of the movie is none other than Maestro John Barry himself, who at the end of the scene takes a bow for the scene, the film and the series? [More]

The making of OHMSS

5. June 2013 11:51 by m | 0 Comments

Learn how OHMSS had been in development since 1964 (early prints of Goldfinger promised that "James Bond will return in On Her Majesty's Secret Service"); how early drafts of the screenplay made Blofeld Goldfinger's brother "I think you knew my brother, who called himself Auric Goldfinger" - Blofeld; and how George Lazenby became swept up in the whole hippie movement, believing that James Bond, the short haired, suit wearing hero of the establishment, would not last against the rising counter-culture. "Bond is a brute. I've already put him behind me. I will never play him again. Peace man - that's the message now." [More]
