Fifty years of Bond, James Bond "Bond, James Bond." Since Sean Connery uttered those immortal words in 1962, the most dashing secret agent in the history of cinema has been charming and thrilling audiences worldwide. Armed with guns, gadgets, and beautiful women, the impeccably British character created by author Ian Fleming has starred in 24 films, played by 7 different actors over five decades. To celebrate 50 years of this innovative franchise, the producers opened their archives of photos, designs, storyboards, and production materials to editor Paul Duncan, who spent two years researching over half a million images and 100 filing cabinets of documentation. The result is the most complete account of the making of the series, covering every James Bond film ever made, beginning with Dr. No(1962) and ending with the upcoming "Bond 23", including the spoof Casino Royale(1967) and Never Say Never Again(1983). The stunning imagery is accompanied by an oral history recounted by over 150 cast and crew members, relating the true inside story of how the Bond films were made. Containing previously unpublished photography and artwork, as well as production memos from filming, this book is a comprehensive tribute to the legend of James Bond.
