. . . with setting him on the Yellow Brick Road to Success which
culminated in Mr. Lamont winning an Oscar as the production designer
for TITANIC. This 21-minute short, DESIGNING BOND - - PETER LAMONT
deals with a string of 16 consecutive Eon Production Company James Bond
films on which Mr. Lamont worked in various capacities, beginning with
Eon's third Bond picture overall, GOLDFINGER (coverage begins at 1:58).
Peter says he was a Union card-carrying junior draftsman, charged with
drawing up the schematics for this flick's version of Fort Knox. Other
Bonds are broached, chronologically, at 4:24 THUNDERBALL, 5:20 YOU ONLY
LIVE TWICE, 6:17 ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRECT SERVICE, 7:28 DIAMONDS ARE
FOREVER, 9:16 LIVE AND LET DIE, 10:12 THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN,
10:29 THE SPY WHO LOVE ME, 11:42 MOONRAKER, 12:05 FOR YOUR EYES ONLY,
13:22 OCTOPU$$Y, 14:38 A VIEW TO A KILL, 16:07 THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS,
16:50 LICENSE TO KILL, 17:18 GOLDENEYE, and 18:46 THE WORLD IS NOT
ENOUGH. The favorite people of Red Staters all have Union Cards, such
as the cast and crew of James Bond movies, the Tomahawk-chopping
Atlanta Braves, and NFL football players. Yet their rejection of
following their idols as role models and getting Union Cards of their
own has killed off the American Middle Class and created the greatest
economic disparity between top and bottom since France in the 1790s
(when the Revolutionaries chopped off all those heads). Hopefully, some
of them will see Mr. Lamont's story and finally comprehend where a
Union Card can lead.
