Some Kind of Hero : The Remarkable Story of the James Bond Films - Reprint (Paperback)
about this item
For more than 50 years, Albert R. Broccoli’s Eon Productions has endured critical wrath and acclaim in equal measure for its now legendary James Bond series. Changing tax regimes forced 007 to relocate to France and Mexico; changing fashions and politics led to box office disappointments; and changing studio regimes and business disputes all but killed the franchise, while competing action heroes displaced Bond’s place in popular culture. But the filmmakers continue to wring new life from the series, and 2012’s Skyfall saw critical and commercial success. Fully updated to include 2015’s Spectre, this book recounts this remarkable story, from its origins in the early 1960s right through to the present day, and draws on hundreds of unpublished interviews with the cast and crew.
