First of all, this 8 minute, 41.94-second short . . .
16 October 2014 | by (Jacksonville, FL) – See all my reviews

. . . is entirely in grainy black & white. The guy with the big nose (a.k.a., the host of this piece) is as singular looking as Ed Sullivan. So when the Eon Production people providing information for this web page claim that because the "credits" have been lost, he's as anonymous as the man in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, that reeks of pure laziness. The other Eon extras prove that ANYONE connected to ANY of the 23 Eon Bond films must have a sound boom and camera in their faces at least once a day for the rest of their lives to obtain any possible Bond reminiscence, no matter how inconsequential. More than likely, almost all of these geezers could have identified the "mystery host" for the young, underpaid production crew who work on their James Bond "extras" (excepting, of course, those codgers with memory loss--but most of them who appear on camera are "as sharp as a tack" when asked to recall the good old days). Computer algorithms already can provide a complete record of nearly every keystroke since the invention of typewriters, and facial recognition software could do a family tree for any snapshot dug out of a landfill. Therefore, instead of saying key information is simply "lost," just be honest, and state "it was too much trouble for us to look it up--it would have cost $0 worth of our free intern's time."
