More About Some Kind of Hero by Matthew Field; Ajay Chowdhury; George Lazenby
 
 
 
Overview
The first biography of the making of the James Bond series, drawing on hundreds of unpublished interviews with the cast and crew
For over 50 years, Albert R. Broccoli s Eon Productions has navigated the ups and downs of the volatile British film industry, enduring both critical wrath and acclaim in equal measure for its now legendary James Bond series. Latterly, this family-run business has been crowned with box office gold and recognized by motion picture academies around the world. However, it has not always been smooth sailing. 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 the rise of competing action heroes displaced Bond s place in popular culture. But against all odds the filmmakers continue to wring new life from the series, and 2012 s Skyfall saw both huge critical and commercial success, crowning 007 as the undisputed king of the action genre. Some Kind of Hero 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this remarkable story, from its origins in the early 1960s right through to the present day, and draws on hundreds of unpublished interviews with the cast and crew of this iconic series."
