Did I hear this so-called "marketing director" correctly?!
21 April 2014 | by (Vault Heaven) – See all my reviews

In this short for ON HER MAJESTY"S SECRET SERVICE, entitled PRESS DAY IN P0RTUGAL, narrator Anne Bennett--who introduces herself as the "Director of Marketing" for Eon Productions, which has churned out 23 of the 25 James Bond films released to date--comments on archival footage taken during a "fake shoot" staged for the world press at a different location on another day from when James Bond's purported wedding ACTUALLY was shot. (Of course, NO actual James Bond--such as Sean Connery or Roger Moore--would have allowed himself or his character to be married "for real;" but when you cast the cheapest "actor" you can find--who had LESS movie experience than the junior gaffers and boom boys on location for SERVICE--he's obviously NOT going to know any better!) Anyway, Ms. Bennett mentions in passing that Bond set off upon his ill-fated honeymoon in his DBS! While it's true a DBS car existed at one time, any Bond-oriented toddler knows that James first drove his DB5 Aston Martin, plate #BMT216A, in GOLDFINGER, then in THUNDERBALL, etc. etc. For crying-out-loud, it's the most famous car (and toy car, for that matter) in history! I realize that Ms. Bennett MAY have been reading from a hand-written note sloppily dashed off by someone else (whose "5's" could have been mistaken for "S's"), but as marketing director, it's her JOB to get the important details RIGHT!
