Quite frankly most of these films are not very amusing, as comedies, but can be interesting visually at least. Arguably no character symbolises Britain and British identity more than Bond, yet Bond's Britishness has assumed an overtly English form. Feldman announced he was pursuing Roger Moore to star as the spy in his upcoming non-Eon film adaptation of Fleming’s first novel, Casino Royale. Plus, to make the situation even sillier, Blofeld had appeared in five of the nine Bond films made up to that point- he was arguably James Bond’s arch-enemy and the main protagonist of the franchise.

They were kinda more risque Carry On films with a bit of added raunch and nudity filled with what looked like, page 3 girls or Mayfair centrespreads [rather than Babs Windsor or Elke Sommer].Also there does seem to be a lot more cheeky innuendo than previously and Caroline Munro does look like she’s wandered in from a far seedier production. If I told you to list some of the staples of motion pictures what would you include: stars, a good script.

We’re introduced to one of the very best Bond girls- Major Amasova, also known as “Agent Triple X”, wonderfully portrayed by Barbara Bach. For me, Roger Moore embodied an idea of Britishness totally at odds with the insular worldview and false nostalgia of Brexit. Like many, I want to thank the NHS, teachers, journalists and all key workers who keep the British end up, especially during the pandemic.

In their early days in the late 90's they dredged up long forgotten 70's stars like Askwith and Richmond for the Saturday night schedules. There is a larger colour picture section though than before and additional films have been added to the main section of the book. One thing for sure- somewhere along the way the Bond series re-discovered its confidence and sparkle. Detailing 25 years of smut from 1958's 'Nudist Paradise' to 1983's 'Hellcat's Mudwrestling' it is a definite guide to the British 'sex comedy' [which had no sex and precious little comedy].

What You only live twice did for the ‘60s and Connery, I suppose Spy did for the ‘70s and Roger Moore. All writings, including articles, news items, and reviews; as well as the blog logo, ratings and banners are the work and intellectual propery of the author, Kristen Lopez.

I told him how much his films had meant to me, and how excited they had made me to go out and explore the world. I can even remember going to my local ABC theatre in London and getting amused and somewhat modestly aroused by them.I worked as an extra for a few days and on the third day as I walked through the gates, a car pulled up alongside of me. We get a white Lotus Esprit that converts to a submarine, and of course we get Caroline Munro as Naomi who gets to chase after Bond in a gun heavy helicopter. His persona favourite Bond was The Spy Who Loved Me with its iconic opening, “Well it certainly was that sequence. Hurst told me that if I could get my family to support me for a while he would pay my tuition at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts.
