    Before we close the book on this election season, let me quote one of the most dispiriting asides on the subject. Daniel Craig, the star of the new James Bond movie The Audacity Of Solace – no, wait, A Quantum Of Hope - was being interviewed by Kevin Sessums for Parade (that supplement thingie that’s free in all the local newspapers), and as a final question was asked which of the two candidates would make the better 007: Craig doesn’t hesitate. ‘Obama would be the better Bond because—if he’s true to his word—he’d be willing to quite literally look the...

    Daniel Craig says Barack Obama's win in the American presidential election has paved the way for the next James Bond to be black. The actor - who has played the British spy in two instalments of the franchise - says he'd like to see his replacement be black. He said: "I'm a real fan of Obama because I like his political ideas. And I think it's the right moment for a black James Bond. If we can have a black US President, I think we might have reached the moment for a new kind of 007. "I think the role...

    Soviet diehards see red over 'betrayal' by 007 girl Olga Kurylenko Tony Halpin in Moscow Bond girls often come to a sticky end but Olga Kurylenko will be hoping that the Communists never get hold of her. Kurylenko, the Ukrainian actress who plays Bond's sidekick in Quantum of Solace, has been condemned by the Communist Party of St Petersburg for aiding “the killer of hundreds of Soviet people and their allies”. Apparently oblivious to Bond's fictional nature, it accused her of assisting “a man who worked for decades under the orders of Thatcher and Reagan to destroy the USSR”. In...

    MOSCOW, October 27 (RIA Novosti) - A Russian communist group has attacked the newest Bond girl, Olga Kurylenko, for her "moral and intellectual betrayal" in starring in a film about the "enemy of the Soviet people." Ukrainian-born Kurylenko, 28, stars in the new James Bond film, Quantum of Solace, alongside English actor Daniel Craig. "In the name of all communists we appeal to you, Olga Kurylenko, wanton daughter of unclean Ukraine and deserter of the Slavic world. The Soviet Union educated you, cared for you, and brought you up for free, but no one suspected that you would commit this...

    Ian Fleming, the father of James Bond and inventor of Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang, was born one hundred years ago today: May 28th 1908. We'll be marking the occasion in the days ahead, and might even get around to the new Bond novel commissioned for the centenary from my old friend Sebastian Faulks. Sebastian came to stay with me a few years back to get some background for a novel he was writing that included a chapter said in northern New England. If you're planning on reading it for glimpses of my home life, he turned me into a woman and had...

    Looking at the origins and makeup of the various Indy films, it is clear that the producer-director combination of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg sought to create a James Bond-like character [1]. Even so, there are major differences between Indy and James Bond, starting with the fact that the latter is employed by a government agency with a "license to kill" across national borders. In effect, Bond was the archetypal imperialist figure for whom national boundaries meant nothing as he carried out his government's orders with scant disregard for life and even less for clothing his women. All in all,...

The title is taken from one of a collection of short stories published by 007 creator Ian Fleming in 1960.

The next outing, previously known as Bond 22, is partly being shot at Pinewood Studios...

    "Quantum of Solace" is the title of the new James Bond film, the 22nd Bond adventure. The title was revealed to reporters Thursday at Pinewood Studios outside of London, where the movie is being filmed. Producer Michael G. Wilson said the title, chosen only a few days ago, was taken from a story by Bond creator Ian Fleming that appears in the collection "For Your Eyes Only." "We thought it was an intriguing title and referenced what happened to Bond and what is happening in the film," he said.

    LONDON (Reuters) - Lois Maxwell, the Canadian-born actress who was to many fans the definitive Miss Moneypenny in James Bond films, has died in Western Australia aged 80, the BBC reported on Sunday. It said Maxwell, the demur foil to Bond's suave rake in 14 films from 1962's "Dr. No" to 1985's "A View to a Kill," had died in Fremantle Hospital. She had been suffering from cancer. In the Bond films Moneypenny as secretary to Bond's chief M has a flirtatious relationship with the spy, evidently attracted to him but never succumbing to his advances. It was a role...

    SYDNEY (AFP) - Actress Lois Maxwell, who was known to millions of fans through her role as Miss Moneypenny in a series of Bond movies, has died in Australia, an official said Sunday. She was 80. "She passed away on 29th September at 11:40 pm," a spokeswoman for Fremantle Hospital in western Australia told AFP. The Canadian-born actress had been living in Australia for several years because her son and his family are based there.

    Science has spoken and the results are shocking, positively shocking. Psychologists at two U.K. universities have determined that Sean Connery most closely resembles the vision author Ian Fleming had in mind when he created his British spy James Bond, according to a report in the London Telegraph. Rob Jenkins of the University of Glasgow and Richard Wiseman of the University of Hertfordshire created a composite image using all of the actors that Fleming himself said in 1961 had the right facial structure to be his 007 hero. The technique — called prototyping — combined photographs of Stewart Granger, Richard Burton,...
  • Roosevelt Years (Serb that warned Hoover on possible attack on Pearl Harbour)

    The British double agent Dusko Popov, who reputedly inspired Ian Fleming’s creation of James Bond, was approached by the Germans to become their spy. Popov did so, but reported everything he did to the British. When the Germans sent Popov to set up a large spy ring in the U.S., he was asked to gather some very provocative information for the Japanese. The Japanese request, called the "Japanese questionnaire," involved a lot of extremely specific information about Hawaii and Pearl Harbor. British Intelligence and Popov came to the conclusion in August of 1941 that the Japanese were preparing an invasion...

    Contemplating the cover of “The Man Who Saved Britain”—Sean Connery, wearing a tuxedo and a sadistic smile, caressing his cheek with his Walther PPK, as a nubile underclad 1960s dolly bird somewhere down at crotch-height nuzzles against his upper thigh… Where was I? Oh, yes. Bond, James Bond. Contemplating the cover of “The Man Who Saved Britain,” you’re struck by the apparent ingenuity of Simon Winder’s concept: It is weird, when you think about it, that the great enduring iconic figure of the Cold War, the very embodiment of the espionage profession, should be a Brit. The country was, after...
