The London Film Convention, organized by Thomas Bowington was quite literally a Who’s Who of heroes and villains from the small and silver screen. The actual Who came in the shape of a Dr. himself in the guise of Sylvester McCoy, along with Who assistants Katy Manning who played Jo and Bernard Cribbins from both the Amicus film version and the TV version. There was also a rare appearance from Garial Woolf. The other key cult British film genres-the Carry On films, James Bond and Hammer horror- were all represented too, with many of the star guests appearing in all three: from the Carry On Films we had Fenella Fielding, Anita Harris and Amanda Barrie, from Hammer and Bond we had Maddie Smith, Valerie Leon, Martine Beswick, Eunice Gayson, John Wyman,

It’s one thing to have a movie that is based on a book. It happens all the time. It’s more rare to have an entire franchise of films based on a book or set of books. Over the last two decades, it seems like we have been seeing more and more franchises emerge that are based on books. This seems to be happening for a few reasons. First, Hollywood is more than ever looking for established properties on which to base films. Book, have been and always will be one of the best established properties for a movie to be based upon. Second, if the books have a big following, chances are that the
‘Not long till your birthday!” the receptionist shouts as Earl Cameron materialises in the lobby of the Holiday Inn near his home in Warwickshire. He’s come with his wife, Barbara, to check on the party arrangements. They’ve booked the conference suite, which he now fears is too small, given all the guests who are coming. He has six children scattered around the world, more grandkids than he can keep track of, plus scores of old friends.
It’s going to be a big bash, which is only fitting. Cameron was arguably Britain’s first black movie star – and these are the preparations for his 100th birthday, which takes place this week.
The documentary is dedicated to Roger Moore, which died in May. The film will serve as a promotional vehicle for the song “U N I,” composed and produced by Geoffrey for Unicef to raise funds for the charity. Roger Moore was a Goodwill Ambassador for Unicef for nearly 30 years.
“I promised him before he died that we would complete this movie,” Moore told Variety.
The song highlights the unnecessary suffering of children around the world and emphasizes how charitable actions can stop it from happening.
“My father had a great sense of humor so the documentary is very sardonic,” Moore noted. “We both believed that humor is a great way to make a serious point. He was very dedicated to Unicef and the notion of using his good fortune for good
Several factors contribute to the elevated respect for the series, going back almost half a century to when the first film, never intended as anything other than a standalone, became a surprise success in 1968.
Let’s track some curious highlights on the unusual trajectory that brings us to the ninth entry in the longest running English-language film series other than James Bond:
The Genesis Was a Stand-Alone Novel
Pierre Boule was well-known for the World War II novel “The Bridge on the River Kwai” which became a David Lean Best Picture winner and massive worldwide hit in the late 1950s.
She is known for her role in the Bond film, Thunderball (1965), where she starred opposite Sean Connery. She was introduced by director Terence Young into films.
The official Twitter handle of the Bond series tweeted, "We are sad to hear that Molly Peters has passed away at the age of 75. Our thoughts are with her family."
Let us pray for the departed soul to rest in peace.
Molly Peters, who appeared alongside Sean Connery in 1965's Thunderball, has died, according to the film franchise's official Twitter account.

"We are sad to hear that Molly Peters has passed away at the age of 75. Our thoughts are with her family," the tweet read.
Peters became known as the first "Bond girl" to remove her clothing, which at the time, created some controversy surrounding the film.

The news comes after former Bond actor Roger Moore -- who embodied the character for the longest time -- died on May 23 in Switzerland at age 89.

News of her death was first announced on the official James Bond Twitter account. Her cause of death has not yet been announced.
“We are sad to hear that Molly Peters has passed away at the age of 75. Our thoughts are with her family,” read the tweet.

The British-born actress played Pat, a nurse to Sean Connery’s Bond,
Peters, 75, played Pat, a nurse tending to Sean Connery’s Bond in 1965’s “Thunderball.” She was the first Bond girl to take her clothes off onscreen in scenes that were considered racy and controversial. Several were ultimately cut from the film.
The Bond Twitter feed said: “We are sad to hear that Molly Peters has passed away at the age of 75. Our thoughts are with her family.”
Peters’ death comes barely a week after that of Roger Moore, who played the part of the suave 007 more times than any other actor.
Peters, who was also a model, had a fleeting acting career, spanning just a handful of films and series in the mid-1960s. “Thunderball” was her most notable big screen role.

“We are sad to hear that Molly Peters has passed away at the age of 75. Our thoughts are with her family,” the Twitter account posted. Peters’ cause of death is still unknown.

Peters starred in the 1965 Bond film “Thunderball” opposite Sean Connery. According to The Daily Express, Peters was the first.

Molly Peters, who began her career as a nude "glamour girl" model before starting a short-lived film career, has passed away at age 78. She had been diagnosed with terminal breast cancer according to her husband but it was a stroke to which she succumbed. Peters' voluptuous appearance made her one of the more popular of the provocative models who posed for men's magazines in the 1960s. She posed for England's legendary photographer of nudes, Harrison Marks. She landed the only memorable role of her career in the 1965 James Bond blockbuster "Thunderball". In the film, Bond (Sean Connery) was sent to the Shrublands health spa to recuperate from some wear-and-tear. Here he encounters nurse Pat (Peters), a sexy blonde who conveniently is assigned to look after Bond's needs. Within short order Bond has her naked in a steam room. In another scene, Bond
Moore played 007 in seven movies over the course of a dozen years, dodging more bullets — golden and otherwise — than we could possibly count. But sooner or later, fate was sure to catch up with the debonair star. All men are mortal, of course, but not so Bond, who’s been saving the world since 1962 (“Dr. No”), and with his passing, Moore became the first big-screen Bond to leave us.
He was actually the third star to play the part, taking over the role from Sean Connery in 1973, and unlike Australian model George Lazenby (who played 007 just once, in “On

So it seems like the news that Syncopy will be producing the next Bond was at best premature and at worst totally untrue. It’s a shame, because the possibility that Christopher Nolan is going to direct a Bond film is too great to pass up.
Nolan is exactly the right choice; British, from the same sort of class at Ian Fleming, the right age to have grown up with the Bond films all around him, and a master – perhaps the master – of the big budget, intelligent action movie. As he showed with his Batman films he can take something that is both familiar and a little overblown and reinvent and reinvigorate it and most importantly make it believable.
Ten years ago there was a clamour for Paul Greengrass to direct a Bond film, and you
