A long forgotten James Bond short story, possibly written by Dr. No/From Russia With Love screenwriter Johanna Harwood, has been revealed on The Young Bond Dossier.
The story is called “Some Are Born Great” and was first published in the September 3, 1959 issue of Nursery World. The story details an intense card game with Bond facing off against an unseen opponent, only to reveal in the end that it’s a game of “Snap” and this is a prepubescent James Bond playing against a nanny.
The story was discovered by author Charles Helfenstein while researching his major new book, The Making of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. (For the interested, this highly recommended book can be ordered from Amazon.com (U.S.) and Amazon.co.uk (UK))
