"Bond, James Bond." Since Sean Connery uttered those immortal words in 1962, the most dashing secret agent in the history of cinema has been charming and thrilling audiences worldwide. This impeccably British character created by author Ian Fleming has starred in 23 EON-produced films been played by 6 different actors over five decades. This stunning imagery is accompanied by an oral history recounted by more than 150 cast and crew members, relating the true inside story of how the Bond films were made. Containing previously unpublished photography and artwork, as well as production memos from filming, this book is a comprehensive tribute to the legend of James Bond. Playboy and James Bond share a lust for adventure and knowledge of all things related to style, music and cars. It isn’t so ironic either that Ian Fleming published several short stories in Playboy magazine.
