A look at the life of Ian Fleming from when he was in Naval Intelligence as a Commander until his death in 1964. This docudrama gives an insight into what Fleming was really like and how he wrote the Bond novels.
Bond, James Bond. Perhaps the greatest fictional cinema icon ever. He first appeared on the big screen in 1962 in Dr. No, and has remained the most powerful action hero ever since.

I can tell you this...if you're a Bond fan, see this...you will thoroughly love it. Interviews with all 5 Bonds, great clips from all 19 films, Q, the girls, villains, and a whole lot more. It's a fun-filled hour or so for us Bond-maniacs. I saw it on AMC one night earlier this year and am glad it will make it to video and DVD soon.
