"There's an audience right through this whole Universe . . . "
30 June 2014 | by (Jacksonville, FL) – See all my reviews

" . . . that wants to see James Bond," states Eon Company producer Albert R. "Cubby" Broccoli, as the camera person zooms in to fill the screen with that portion of his face that lies between his eyebrows and his lower lips, sort of like Orson Welles filming CITIZEN KANE. Make no mistake, though IMDb lists BOND '79 as a 2006 opus, only producer Michael Wilson's two-sentence opening voice-over comes from the 21st Century. The rest of this 12 minute, 19-second short consists of four open air interviews conducted in late 1978 or early 1979 high above one of Rio's bays, most likely on a hotel or restaurant terrace. Besides Broccoli, MOONRAKER director Lewis Gilbert, Eon company's Bond #3 Roger Moore, and actress Lois Chiles ("Honey Goodhead") comprise the featured quartet. Broccoli has the best lines, such as saying Bond movies "are all done by committee." Moore observes that these flicks are banned in Switzerland, even though the nude chicks in the opening titles are only "seen in profile, back-lit." Gilbert adds, "They'll soon know when to stop making James Bond films: when people stop going to see them" (not admitting that modern movie audiences behave like the "Eloi" as actor Rod Taylor observed them when the whistle blew and the multiplex doors flew open in 1960's THE TIME MACHINE). Ms. Chiles chimes in, "These kind of movies are important."
