If the original James Bond producer "didn't have a head for business" . . .
22 October 2014 | by (Vault Heaven) – See all my reviews

. . . what does that say about the series itself? The Greek and Roman religions with Zeus, Mars, Diana, etc. were pretty big in their day, but they did not stand the test of time (no world leaders consult "the Oracles" nowadays, and Hollywood has proved that you can cartoon and lampoon Zeus and his Mount Olympus cronies to your heart's contest, and no one will cut off your head). In other words, nobody takes these cults seriously in the 21st Century, though you could not get away from them awhile back. By the same token, at one time Mr. Saltzman's "James Bond Agent 007" movie series was the most successful of all time, just as "Fatty" Arbuckle was once the cream of the crop when it came to comedy on the Silver Screen. But few folks born since the mid-1900s have heard of Fatty, and probably few born after the mid-2000s will ever hear of Bond. Harry Potter already has trounced the combined box office of 23 Eon Production Bond flicks in just 8 outings, and right this minute savvy businesswoman J.K. Rowling is busy scribbling away on three more film scripts. The son of that other Harry, Steven Saltzman, says during HARRY SALTZMAN: SHOWMAN that "my father had no business acumen." Whereas Daniel Radcliffe played Master Potter in all 8 movies, fickle Mr. Saltzman kept changing 007 actors at the drop of a hat (I think his company is up to about 6 Bonds-of-the-Month now). Just as Marlon Brando laments "I Coulda been a Contender" in ON THE WATERFRONT, Agent 007 might have been a candidate for cultural immortality like Luke Skywalker or Charles Xavier if Mr. Saltzman had had a "head for business," as opposed to becoming an ancient joke like the Greek and Roman gods.
