CHEERING

0:01:410:01:43

Thank you, Carl.

0:02:070:02:09

Welcome to an evening

0:02:090:02:12

where we hope to leave you shaken, but not stirred.

0:02:120:02:15

LAUGHTER

0:02:150:02:16

James Bond was conceived in 1953,

0:02:160:02:20

at Ian Fleming's home Goldeneye, Jamaica.

0:02:200:02:25

"I created Bond to take my mind off that appalling business

0:02:250:02:29

"of getting married at the age of 43," explained Fleming.

0:02:290:02:33

"It was rather a dramatic step for a confirmed bachelor,"

0:02:350:02:38

"and I created Bond to insulate myself against the shock."

0:02:380:02:43

Ex-British intelligence, expert bridge player,

0:02:440:02:49

a compulsive womaniser -

0:02:490:02:52

whether Bond was modelled on Fleming or the other way round was academic.

0:02:520:02:55

Ambitions to turn Bond into a celluloid hero date back to 1954.

0:02:570:03:03

But it didn't become a reality until 1961,

0:03:030:03:08

when "Cubby" Broccoli and Harry Saltzman secured the rights

0:03:080:03:11

to all James Bond books,

0:03:110:03:14

with the exception of Casino Royale and Thunderball.

0:03:140:03:20

These three gentlemen made unlikely bedfellows.

0:03:200:03:24

Fleming, the disdainful old Etonian,

0:03:240:03:28

Saltzman, the volatile American,

0:03:280:03:31

and patient Cubby.

0:03:310:03:33

But they all agreed one thing.

0:03:330:03:36

James Bond could only be played by David Niven.

0:03:360:03:40

Or Trevor Howard.

0:03:400:03:42

Or Patrick McGoohan.

0:03:420:03:45

Or James Fox, or Cary Grant, or Michael Redgrave.

0:03:450:03:50

Or just possibly

0:03:500:03:52

the ex-Mr Universe from Edinburgh - what was his name?

0:03:520:03:58

Oh, yes. Sean Connery.

0:03:580:04:01

Connery was a beautiful specimen of well-honed manhood.

0:04:010:04:06

-I'll second that!

-LAUGHTER

0:04:060:04:09

One, two, three, four!

0:04:090:04:11

APPLAUSE

0:06:230:06:26

Dr No,

0:06:360:06:37

with its mixture of gritty reality with blatant unreality,

0:06:370:06:42

had set the tone for Bond films,

0:06:420:06:45

and From Russia With Love was not to disappoint.

0:06:450:06:49

The film was also given a helping hand

0:06:490:06:51

when President Kennedy declared it

0:06:510:06:54

to be one of his all-time favourite books.

0:06:540:06:58

007 was now moving in exalted company.

0:06:580:07:02

# From Russia with love

0:07:110:07:15

# I fly to you

0:07:160:07:20

# Much wiser since my

0:07:210:07:25

# Goodbye to you

0:07:250:07:30

# I've travelled the world

0:07:300:07:34

# To learn, I must return

0:07:340:07:41

# From Russia with love

0:07:410:07:46

# I've seen places, faces

0:07:470:07:53

# And smiled for a moment

0:07:540:07:58

# But oh

0:07:580:08:01

# You haunted me so

0:08:010:08:04

# Still, my tongue-tied young pride

0:08:060:08:12

# Would not let my love

0:08:120:08:17

# For you show

0:08:170:08:20

# In case you'd say no

0:08:200:08:25

# To Russia I flew

0:08:260:08:31

# But there and then

0:08:310:08:36

# I suddenly knew

0:08:360:08:41

# You'd care again

0:08:410:08:46

# My running around

0:08:460:08:50

# Is through

0:08:500:08:52

# I fly to you

0:08:520:08:57

# From Russia

0:08:590:09:02

# With love! #

0:09:020:09:08

APPLAUSE

0:09:170:09:19

The next theme comes from a film that I'm all too familiar with.

0:09:290:09:34

In fact, it is named after my former employer, Mr Auric Goldfinger.

0:09:340:09:40

I was relieved to find that my character

0:09:410:09:43

appeared in the latter part of the film,

0:09:430:09:46

as Bond girls generally tend to expire

0:09:460:09:50

if Bond takes a shine to them too early in the picture.

0:09:500:09:53

Of course, the film was not without controversy,

0:09:540:09:58

mostly centring around my name.

0:09:580:10:00

LAUGHTER

0:10:000:10:02

But what's wrong with Honor(?)

0:10:030:10:05

LAUGHTER

0:10:050:10:06

But seriously, ladies and gentlemen, for some reason the American censors

0:10:070:10:12

thought there was something a little below the belt in the name Pussy.

0:10:120:10:16

It was not until they'd seen a picture of the Duke of Edinburgh

0:10:180:10:21

and my dear self together in a newspaper,

0:10:210:10:25

with the caption "The Prince and the Pussy"...

0:10:250:10:28

LAUGHTER

0:10:280:10:29

..that they finally acquiesced to its US release. Thank you, Philip!

0:10:320:10:37

# Goldfinger

0:10:560:10:59

# He's the man

0:11:010:11:03

# The man with the Midas touch

0:11:030:11:08

# A spider's touch

0:11:090:11:13

# Such a cold finger

0:11:140:11:18

# Beckons you to enter his web of sin

0:11:210:11:27

# But don't go in!

0:11:280:11:32

# Golden words he will pour in your ear

0:11:340:11:38

# But his lies can't disguise what you fear

0:11:380:11:43

# For a golden girl

0:11:430:11:46

# Knows when he's kissed her

0:11:460:11:48

# It's the kiss of death, from Mr Goldfinger

0:11:490:11:56

# Pretty girl, beware of this heart of gold

0:11:580:12:05

# This heart is cold!

0:12:060:12:11

# Golden words he will pour in your ear

0:12:110:12:15

# But his lies can't disguise what you fear

0:12:160:12:20

# For a golden girl knows when he's kissed her

0:12:200:12:26

# It's the kiss of death, from Mr Goldfinger

0:12:260:12:33

# Pretty girl, beware of this heart of gold

0:12:360:12:42

# This heart is cold

0:12:430:12:47

# He loves only gold

0:12:480:12:52

# Only gold

0:12:520:12:55

# He loves gold

0:12:560:13:01

# He loves only gold

0:13:010:13:05

# Only gold

0:13:050:13:09

# He loves

0:13:090:13:11

# Go-o-o-o-o-ld!

0:13:110:13:20

APPLAUSE

0:13:210:13:23

There was one Bond story that got away from Cubby Broccoli.

0:13:360:13:40

The original Casino Royale, made in 1967.

0:13:400:13:45

A whole year before the birth of Daniel Craig...

0:13:450:13:49

LAUGHTER

0:13:490:13:51

It was a typical '60s farrago. There was not one

0:13:510:13:55

but many James Bonds in the film,

0:13:550:13:58

including a Peter Sellers creation

0:13:580:14:01

and a Jimmy Bond, played by a young Woody Allen.

0:14:010:14:05

In a gamble that didn't really pay off,

0:14:050:14:08

the one blue chip in Casino Royale

0:14:080:14:12

was the elegant Burt Bacharach score,

0:14:120:14:16

which included a real gem, The Look Of Love.

0:14:160:14:20

# The look of love

0:14:310:14:36

# Is in your eyes

0:14:360:14:41

# A look

0:14:410:14:44

# Your smile can't disguise

0:14:440:14:51

# The look of love

0:14:520:14:58

# Is saying so much more than

0:15:000:15:04

# Just words could ever say

0:15:040:15:08

# And what my heart has heard

0:15:100:15:15

# It takes my breath away

0:15:150:15:19

# I can hardly wait to hold you

0:15:190:15:22

# Feel my arms around you

0:15:220:15:27

# How long I have waited

0:15:270:15:29

# Waited just to love you, now that I have found you

0:15:290:15:36

# You've got that look of love

0:15:360:15:42

# It's on your face

0:15:420:15:46

# A look

0:15:470:15:50

# That time can't erase

0:15:500:15:56

# Be mine tonight

0:15:580:16:04

# Let this be just the start of

0:16:050:16:10

# So many nights like this

0:16:100:16:13

# Let's take a lover's vow, and then

0:16:160:16:20

# Seal it with a kiss

0:16:200:16:25

# I can hardly wait to hold you

0:16:250:16:28

# Feel my arms around you

0:16:280:16:31

# How long I have waited

0:16:310:16:35

# Waited just to love you, now that I have found you

0:16:350:16:41

# Don't ever go

0:16:420:16:46

# Don't ever go

0:16:470:16:51

# I love you so. #

0:16:530:17:00

Thunderball was intended to be the first Bond film.

0:17:200:17:24

However, there were as many battles off screen as there were on it,

0:17:240:17:29

as producers and co-collaborators

0:17:290:17:32

fought over the rights in a rather ungentlemanly fashion.

0:17:320:17:36

As they say in Hollywood - where there's a hit, there's a writ!

0:17:370:17:42

But one thing no-one was arguing about was Bond's success.

0:17:420:17:48

# He always ran while others walked

0:17:570:18:04

# Died, while other men just talked

0:18:070:18:13

# Died in a world that needs it all

0:18:150:18:20

# So he strikes, like Thunderball

0:18:240:18:30

# He knows the meaning of success

0:18:320:18:39

# His needs are more

0:18:410:18:45

# So he gives less

0:18:450:18:49

# They call him the winner who takes it all

0:18:500:18:55

# And he strikes

0:18:580:19:01

# Like Thunderball

0:19:010:19:06

# Any woman he wants, he will get

0:19:070:19:13

# He will break

0:19:150:19:17

# Any heart

0:19:170:19:19

# Without regret

0:19:190:19:24

# His days of asking

0:19:250:19:29

# Are all gone

0:19:290:19:31

# His fight

0:19:330:19:35

# Goes on and on and on

0:19:350:19:41

# But he thinks

0:19:420:19:44

# That the fight is worth it all

0:19:440:19:47

# So he strikes

0:19:500:19:52

# Like Thunderball! #

0:19:520:20:07

On Her Majesty's Secret Service was thought by many to be a forgettable film,

0:20:270:20:32

with the unforgettable song All The Time In The World.

0:20:320:20:36

John Barry took the title from the final page in Ian Fleming's novel.

0:20:370:20:43

Louis Armstrong left his sick bed to record it.

0:20:430:20:48

At the end of the session in New York,

0:20:480:20:50

he grabbed John Barry's hand and grinned, "Thanks for the gig, man."

0:20:500:20:56

Tragically, the world lost this jazz legend shortly afterwards.

0:20:560:21:03

# We have all the time in the world

0:21:120:21:19

# Time enough for life to unfold

0:21:210:21:26

# All the precious things love has in store

0:21:260:21:31

# We have all the love in the world

0:21:320:21:39

# If that's all we have

0:21:410:21:44

# You will find we need nothing more

0:21:440:21:50

# Every step of the way

0:21:510:21:56

# Will find us

0:21:560:22:00

# With the cares of the world

0:22:000:22:05

# Far behind us

0:22:050:22:11

# We have all

0:22:110:22:13

# The love in the world

0:22:130:22:18

# Just for love

0:22:180:22:21

# Nothing more

0:22:210:22:23

# Nothing less

0:22:230:22:25

# Only love... #

0:22:250:22:29

# ..Every step of the way

0:22:520:22:58

# Will find us

0:22:580:23:01

# With the cares of the world

0:23:020:23:07

# Far behind us

0:23:070:23:11

# We have all the time

0:23:110:23:17

# In the world

0:23:170:23:20

# Just for love

0:23:200:23:22

# Nothing more

0:23:220:23:25

# Nothing less

0:23:250:23:27

# Only love... #

0:23:270:23:32

# ..Only love. #

0:23:520:23:59

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:23:590:24:03

It had taken careful consideration, a large injection of cash

0:24:150:24:20

and a new toupee for Connery...

0:24:200:24:24

LAUGHTER

0:24:240:24:25

..to reprise the role and return to avenge the evil Blofeld

0:24:250:24:30

in Diamonds Are Forever.

0:24:300:24:33

With all these in place, Sean gives a relaxed performance,

0:24:330:24:38

possibly due to the fact that

0:24:380:24:40

he was allowed extra time to play golf between scenes.

0:24:400:24:45

# Diamonds are forever

0:24:550:25:00

# They are all I need to please me

0:25:000:25:05

# They can stimulate and tease me

0:25:050:25:10

# They won't leave in the night

0:25:100:25:14

# I don't fear that they might

0:25:140:25:17

# Desert me

0:25:170:25:20

# Diamonds are forever

0:25:210:25:25

# Hold one up And then caress it

0:25:250:25:29

# Touch it

0:25:290:25:31

# Stroke it and undress it

0:25:310:25:34

# I can see every part

0:25:340:25:37

# Nothing hides in the heart

0:25:370:25:41

# To hurt me

0:25:410:25:44

# I don't need love

0:25:440:25:48

# For what good will love do me?

0:25:480:25:53

# Diamonds never lie to me

0:25:530:25:58

# For when love's gone

0:25:580:26:03

# They lustre on

0:26:030:26:08

# Diamonds are forever

0:26:100:26:13

# Sparkling round my little finger

0:26:130:26:18

# Unlike men, the diamonds linger

0:26:180:26:22

# Men are mere mortals

0:26:220:26:25

# Who are not worth going to your grave for

0:26:250:26:32

# I don't need love

0:26:320:26:35

# For what good will love do me?

0:26:350:26:40

# Diamonds never lie to me

0:26:400:26:46

# For when love's gone

0:26:460:26:51

# They lustre on

0:26:510:26:55

# Diamonds are forever Forever, forever

0:26:570:27:01

# Diamonds are forever Forever, forever

0:27:010:27:06

# Forever

0:27:060:27:10

# And ever! #

0:27:100:27:18

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:27:190:27:22

Exit Sean Connery.

0:27:310:27:34

Enter Roger Moore.

0:27:340:27:36

Roger was the first English James Bond,

0:27:360:27:40

adding a lighter touch and a cigar to 007.

0:27:400:27:43

When asked if he'd like the role, Moore declared,

0:27:440:27:48

"I'll kiss your backside in Macy's window for it."

0:27:480:27:53

LAUGHTER

0:27:530:27:55

-Broccoli declined.

-LAUGHTER

0:27:550:27:57

# You were young

0:27:590:28:00

# And your heart

0:28:000:28:03

# Was an open book

0:28:030:28:05

# You used to say "Live and let live"

0:28:060:28:09

# But if this ever changing world in which we live in

0:28:130:28:18

# Makes you give in and cry

0:28:180:28:22

# "Live and let die"

0:28:240:28:26

# "Live and let die"

0:28:310:28:34

# "Live and let die..." #

0:28:350:28:40

# ..What does it matter to ya?

0:29:090:29:12

# If you got a job to do You've got to do it well

0:29:120:29:15

# You've got to give the other fella hell... #

0:29:170:29:25

# ..You used to say "Live and let live"

0:29:430:29:48

# But if this ever changing world in which we live in

0:29:510:29:55

0:30:120:30:18

# "Live and let die"

0:30:190:30:21

# "Live and let die"

0:30:250:30:29

# "Die!" #

0:30:310:30:37

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:30:410:30:45

Back to the set.

0:31:030:31:06

Roger was wrestling with his director, Guy Hamilton,

0:31:060:31:10

about, well, not wanting to wrestle with his co-star.

0:31:100:31:15

There was a call for Bond to toughen up.

0:31:160:31:19

But when they're as beautiful as Maud Adams,

0:31:190:31:22

Roger thought it would be so much more fun

0:31:220:31:26

to hold his interrogations between the sheets.

0:31:260:31:29

LAUGHTER

0:31:290:31:31

His Bond was a lover and a giggler,

0:31:310:31:34

convinced the best way of smoking out information

0:31:340:31:38

was with a post-coital cigarette.

0:31:380:31:40

# He has a powerful weapon

In Roger's next outing - The Spy Who Loved Me -

0:34:190:34:23

the Aston Martin has been part-exchanged for

0:34:230:34:25

a Lotus with a sub-aquatic capability.

0:34:250:34:30

The largest sound studio in the world, built at Pinewood,

0:34:300:34:34

had to be flooded to contain three stolen nuclear submarines.

0:34:340:34:40

As usual, the action is frantic,

0:34:400:34:43

the special effects are outstanding

0:34:430:34:46

and James gets the girl.

0:34:460:34:48

Now, isn't that unusual?!

0:35:320:35:35

# I tried to hide from Your love light

# Nobody does it quite the way you do

# Why d'you have to be so good?

0:36:180:36:23

# The way that you hold me

0:36:230:36:27

# Whenever you hold me

0:36:270:36:30

# There's some kind of magic inside you

0:36:310:36:37

# That keeps me from running

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:42:020:42:06

The role of Bond was about to fall vacant.

0:42:150:42:19

As much as Roger loved playing him,

0:42:190:42:22

during the shooting of A View To A Kill,

0:42:220:42:24

he realised he was considerably older than

0:42:240:42:28

the mother of his co-star.

0:42:280:42:30

LAUGHTER

0:42:300:42:32

He quickly gave notice to retire from the role.

0:42:320:42:34

Thankfully, he didn't have to rely on Hugo Drax

0:42:340:42:39

from the space-age Moonraker to take care of him in his dotage.

0:42:390:42:43

# Where are you?

0:43:080:43:12

# Why do you hide?

0:43:130:43:17

# Where is that moonlight trail That leads to your side?

0:43:190:43:28

# Just like the Moonraker goes

0:43:280:43:35

# In search of his dream of gold

0:43:350:43:41

# I search for love

0:43:410:43:45

# For someone to have and hold

0:43:480:43:52

# I've seen your smile

0:43:520:43:58

# In a thousand dreams

0:43:580:44:04

# Felt your kiss

0:44:050:44:09

# And it always seems

0:44:090:44:15

# You love me

0:44:150:44:21

# You...love

0:44:210:44:27

# Me

0:44:270:44:34

# Where are you?

0:44:390:44:44

# When will we meet?

0:44:440:44:49

# Take my unfinished life

0:44:510:44:54

# And make it complete

0:44:540:44:59

# Just like the Moonraker knows

0:44:590:45:06

# His dream will come true some day

0:45:080:45:13

# I know that you

0:45:130:45:19

# Are only a kiss away

0:45:190:45:23

# I've seen your smile

0:45:230:45:29

# In a thousand dreams

0:45:290:45:35

# Felt your touch

0:45:360:45:40

# And it always seems

0:45:400:45:46

# You love me

0:45:460:45:52

# You love

0:45:520:45:58

# Me. #

0:45:580:46:11

APPLAUSE

0:46:120:46:17

Before Roger's retirement took effect,

0:46:250:46:29

he made For Your Eyes Only,

0:46:290:46:31

which was regarded as his finest Bond film.

0:46:310:46:34

By this stage, more than half the world's population

0:46:350:46:39

had seen a James Bond film -

0:46:390:46:41

making it the most lucrative series in screen history.

0:46:410:46:46

A memorable quote

0:46:460:46:47

is Bond entering a confessional booth for a meeting with Q.

0:46:470:46:52

Bond confesses, "Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned."

0:46:520:46:58

And Q replies, "That's putting it mildly, 007(!)"

0:46:590:47:04

# For your eyes only

0:47:220:47:26

# Can see me through the night

0:47:260:47:29

# For your eyes only

0:47:320:47:35

# I never need to hide

0:47:350:47:38

# You can see so much in me

0:47:420:47:45

# So much in me that's new

0:47:450:47:49

# I never felt till I looked at you

0:47:510:47:58

# For your eyes only

0:47:580:48:02

# Only for you

0:48:020:48:05

# You'll see what no-one else can see

0:48:050:48:08

# Now I'm breaking free For your eyes only

0:48:080:48:14

# Only for you

0:48:140:48:16

# The love I know you need in me

0:48:160:48:20

# The fantasy you freed in me

0:48:200:48:23

# Only for you

0:48:230:48:27

# Only for you

0:48:270:48:32

# For your eyes only

0:48:400:48:43

# The nights are never cold

0:48:430:48:47

# You really know me

0:48:490:48:53

# That's all I need to know

0:48:530:48:56

# Maybe I'm an open book

0:48:590:49:02

# Because I know you're mine

0:49:020:49:08

# But you don't need to read between the lines

0:49:080:49:15

# For your eyes only

0:49:150:49:19

# Only for you

0:49:190:49:22

# You'll see what no-one else can see

0:49:220:49:25

# Now I'm breaking free

0:49:250:49:28

# For your eyes only

0:49:280:49:31

# Only for you

0:49:310:49:33

# The passions that collide in me

0:49:330:49:37

# The wild abandoned side of me

0:49:370:49:40

# Only for you

APPLAUSE

0:50:080:50:12

1983 was the year of the battle of the Bonds.

0:50:220:50:26

Roger was filming Octopussy.

0:50:260:50:30

No controversy about the word this time round(!)

0:50:300:50:33

And Sean, having said he would never play Bond again,

0:50:330:50:37

was shooting Never Say Never Again.

0:50:370:50:40

The screenplay was written by Porridge writers

0:50:410:50:44

Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais,

0:50:440:50:47

and featured such gems as Q's, "Good to see you, Mr Bond!

0:50:470:50:53

"Things have been awfully dull around here.

0:50:530:50:56

"Now that YOU'RE on this,

0:50:560:50:58

"I hope we're going to have some gratuitous sex and violence."

# To get mixed up with

0:52:000:52:04

# A man who says never

0:52:040:52:09

# You give me no choice

# I know that there's danger there

0:53:060:53:08

# I don't care, let it be

0:53:080:53:12

# To get it bad with a man who says never

0:53:120:53:20

# May have no future but then

Now, Timothy Dalton took up the baton from Roger Moore

0:54:080:54:13

in The Living Daylights.

0:54:130:54:16

Back to cigarettes, back to the Aston Martin,

0:54:160:54:19

out with the cigar and, strangely for Bond,

0:54:190:54:23

far more chaste - that's spelt with a "T".

Timothy Dalton's following film, A Licence to Kill,

0:58:110:58:16

was originally called Licence Revoked.

0:58:160:58:20

Rather apt as, for legal reasons,

0:58:200:58:22

it was the last we would see of Bond for six years

0:58:220:58:26

and Timothy Dalton was to relinquish his licence for good.

0:58:260:58:31

Desmond "Q" Llewelyn plays his biggest ever role in a Bond film,

0:58:320:58:37

as 007 resigns from MI6

0:58:370:58:41

and is forced to become a rogue agent.

0:58:410:58:44

Q surreptitiously arms his former colleague,

0:58:440:58:48

flying in with more and more gadgets.

0:58:480:58:51

How did he get them through customs?

By mutual agreement, Dalton withdrew from the Bond role -

1:04:151:04:21

Pierce Brosnan became Bond.

1:04:211:04:24

In a revolutionary move,

1:04:241:04:26

Judi Dench had become M, the head of the Secret Service

1:04:261:04:31

and Samantha Bond was playing Moneypenny in a new look James Bond.

Brosnan had revitalised the Bond franchise

1:08:081:08:13

but a series of painful injuries had taken their toll on the star.

1:08:131:08:18

Like Frank Spencer, he did all his own stunts -

1:08:181:08:23

so did I in The Avengers, if your memory's long enough!

1:08:231:08:26

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

1:08:261:08:27

So...

1:08:271:08:29

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:08:291:08:31

So what would it take for him to continue reprising the role?

1:08:341:08:38

Well, frankly, there are occasions where the world is not enough.

1:08:381:08:44

# I know how to hurt

1:09:061:09:09

# And I know how to heal

1:09:111:09:15

# I know what to show and what to conceal

1:09:161:09:23

# I know when to talk

1:09:261:09:29

# And I know when to touch

1:09:301:09:34

# No-one ever died from wanting too much

1:09:361:09:43

# The world is not enough

1:09:431:09:46

# But it is such a perfect place to start, my love

1:09:481:09:53

# And if you're strong enough

1:09:531:09:57

# Together we can take the world apart, my love

1:09:571:10:04

# People like us

1:10:061:10:08

# Know how to survive

1:10:101:10:14

# There's no point in living

1:10:151:10:18

# If you can't feel alive

1:10:181:10:22

# We know when to kiss

1:10:251:10:29

# And we know when to kill

1:10:301:10:34

# If we can't have it all

1:10:351:10:37

# Then nobody will

1:10:371:10:42

# The world is not enough

1:10:421:10:46

# But it is such a perfect place to start, my love

1:10:471:10:53

# And if you're strong enough

1:10:531:10:56

# Together we can take the world apart, my love

1:10:561:11:03

# I feel safe

1:11:051:11:08

# I feel scared

1:11:091:11:13

# I feel ready

1:11:141:11:19

# And yet unprepared

1:11:191:11:21

That song was Madonna's sterling contribution to 'Die Another Day'.

1:14:111:14:16

Now came the time to redeem the one that got away. 'Casino Royale'.

1:14:181:14:22

And the time to find a new Bond.

1:14:231:14:26

But who could be next to play the tall, dark, handsome spy?

1:14:271:14:31

From Connery to Moore, Lazenby to Dalton,

1:14:331:14:37

from Pierce to piercing blue eyes.

1:14:371:14:41

Daniel Craig took the crown.

1:14:411:14:44

And for the first time in history, Bond is blonde.

1:14:441:14:49

'Another Way To Die' opens the 2008 Bond film, 'Quantum of Solace'.

1:18:111:18:19

And die it would have done if left to the reviewers.

1:18:201:18:24

Universally slated by the press, and yet loved by the public,

1:18:241:18:29

making this the biggest box-office hit of any Bond film in history.

1:18:291:18:34

-Until now!

Eagerly anticipating Daniel Craig's third Bond film,

1:22:591:23:03

there seemed nowhere to go but up.

1:23:031:23:06

The stars were signed, the sets were designed,

1:23:071:23:11

but the MGM lion failed to roar.

1:23:111:23:14

As bankruptcy approached as fast as a laser to the groin...

1:23:141:23:18

LAUGHTER

1:23:181:23:20

..would the Bond franchise live to die another day?

1:23:201:23:23

To the rescue came Spyglass Entertainment

1:23:251:23:29

and MGM was bailed out.

1:23:291:23:31

And so James Bond survived his sky fall.
