episode #73 James Bond

The one and only special agent, notorious womaniser and masculine icon, James Bond is lavishing and exotic. The 25th film No Time To Die release day is 29th September! Ian Fleming, inspired by his experiences in Naval Intelligence during WW and his passion for travelling the world, sat down at his typewriter at Goldeneye, to write “the spy story to end all spy stories”. The result was Casino Royale, firstly published in the UK in 1953.
