A Fun Documentary
The Terminator10 August 2001
You can find this on the special edition release of Tomorrow Never Dies and it is quite entertaining. The best bit is the in depth analysis on the production of TND, although there are some other nice segments. Shame that it only runs for half an hour but nevertheless, well worth a look.

"He's a saucy monkey . . . "
Edgar Allan Pooh8 April 2014
Warning: Spoilers
. . . Honor Blackman, who plays "Pu$$y Galore" in GOLDFINGER, says of her co-star, Sean Connery, the original big-screen James Bond. This is one of many intriguing tidbits of information included among THE SECRETS OF 007: THE JAMES BOND FILES, a made-for-TV promotional item for TOMORROW NEVER DIES which is infinitely better than the TV companion to YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE (that is, WELCOME TO JAPAN MR. BOND). Unlike that earlier misfire, FILES includes actual interviews with 24 relevant people, such as Ms. Blackman. In addition, there is archival footage presented of the creator of Bond, novelist Ian Fleming, two Bond actors not interviewed here (Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton), plus the initial Bond producing team, Albert R. "Cubby" Broccoli and Harry Saltzman. Film historian Leonard Maltin puts in an appearance, as do Bonds Sean Connery, George Lazenby, and Pierce Brosnan (Numbers 1, 2, and 5, if you don't count David Niven in the 1967 CASINO ROYALE Bond spoof). With this month's THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL riffing off the original Bond bobsled run chase scene (talked about here), Bond retrospectives--if done well--are always timely.
