Storyline

Of all of pop culture's mainstays, no media property created after the Golden Age of Hollywood has had more influence and staying power than the James Bond franchise. This film covers the story of that creation from the imagination of Ian Fleming seeking an escape from his boring intelligence job. From that literary success, we follow the creation of the film series under the producer team of Broccoli & Saltzman as it became a media sensation in the 1960s. As the franchise dealt with changing actors, legal conflict with writer Kevin McClory and the growing internal schisms with the producers, it has its greatest challenge: the changing times. Despite this, Bond has proven as incredible adapting to them as his adventures as the greatest of the spies. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

How do you do Mr Bond
2 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the Eon sanctioned documentary on 50 years of James Bond films. The documentary Everything Or Nothing: The Untold Story Of 007 could had been fluffy celebratory piece like many other documentaries but it is rather warts and all approach although I am still sure some of the unedifying stuff has been left out. You still get a lot more behind the scenes information and footage than previous similar documentaries.

Five of the six actors who have played James Bond take part. Sean Connery who seems to have had a big falling out with the Bond producers in the past does not take part but instead archive interviews are used. As Roger Moore implies in the documentary the Scots can certainly hold a grudge.

There have been several spiky moments for the Bond producers over the last five decades that get a good airing here. The first being getting the rights and bringing the films into fruition. Then Fleming collaborating with Kevin McClory which meant McClory was a thorn for years resulting in the rival film Never say Never again in 1983 with Connery.

Then there was the problem when Connery wanted to leave the role and being replaced by George Lazenby who himself left under acrimonious circumstances after one film.

We then have Roger Moore who took over Bond and then the parting of the ways between Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, the two producers who started the series and the tangle as to Saltzman's rights which he sold to United Artist.

Moore who found the right blend with The Spy who loved me, maybe stayed in the role for too long as the producers were unwilling to replace him in the early 1980s and then could not get Pierce Brosnan and had to got for Timothy Dalton before there was the 6 years hiatus in new Bond films because of litigation and then the relaunch with Brosnan finally in the role and up to the present day with Daniel Craig and the partial reboot of Bond.

Its a great primer for those new to Bond and want some juicy behind the scenes gossip and hard information as to what it takes keeping such a successful franchise going for 50 years. Plenty of archive footage (as many of the main movers and shakers have passed on) and scenes from the movies and some humour as well.
