Topic: James Bond period piece

Does anyone else want a series, based in the 50s on the Fleming novels.

I love a ride in the country, don't you?

Re: James Bond period piece

I'd love to see a good animated series, using the stories from
the novels as Fleming wrote them.

Yes, I'd be up for a period set Bond - Moonraker and Casino Royale would probably work best there.

I don't keep my promises.

Never forget - there's always Toby Stephens and hisa radio Bonds DN, GF and FRWL. All set as period pieces. MR is crying out to be done now Bob Holness has passed.  ajb007/martini

A Moonraker faithful adaptation with Daniel Craig and loudmouth and black bearded Brian Blessed as Sir Hugo 'Hugger Drax - it could work!  ajb007/smile

I agree. A faithful Adaptation of Moonraker would be good, no Space or daft Laser Fights in Space. Just a Missile aimed at London.

Hugo Drax - What put you onto the Cigarette Case anyway?

James Bond - It was my Eyes

Yes, still quite a frightening idea today in 2013, never mind in 1955, I'm sure you'll agree. But of course, Broccoli referred to the "little piddling rocket aimed at London" in 1979 amid the Star Wars and sci-fi craze. This would not do. Still a frightening prospect and I don't even live in London!

Had there been something like a 9/11 then, I'm certain he would have thought differently.
A nuclear strike on London from a rocket (perhaps disguised by Drax as a satellite launch to
benefit England) would have been some film.  Drax would be considered a more cunning and
malevolent version of a Timothy McVeigh today.

Re: James Bond period piece

In many ways I regard the first few Bonds as "period pieces "  ajb007/lol  even OHMSS was made
only six years after publication of the novel.
