    By Helmut Schierer on 2012-08-02

    Almost, but not quite under CBn’s radar went 007 Magazine’s issue number 55, available since the end of July via the 007 Magazine site. First enthusiastic feedback about the edition helped setting this matter straight, and with a slight delay here now follows what information we have. Editor Graham Rye provided us with a most intriguing  note about some of the contents of this publication. And indeed, this issue does brim over with information:


    • “It was the best job in the world!”
      Over the course of a memorable evening in Mayfair, legendary photographer TERRY O’NEILL talked with LUKE WILLIAMS about his experiences working with five James Bonds (and over 20 Bond girls!), as well as explaining how Frank Sinatra changed his career and why the way to Sean Connery’s heart was through golf! (Includes a photo preview of Terry O’Neill’s book ALL ABOUT BOND, published in September 2012.)
    • Will BOND 23 rise or fall?
      In October 2012, James Bond will finally return to the big screen, after a four-year absence, in the 23rd film in the series – SkyFall. LUKE WILLIAMS examines what is known so far about the Sam Mendes helmed feature (Features all the latest SkyFall imagery).
    • THE SEARCH FOR BOND: How the 007 role was won and lost!
      Only six men can lay claim to wearing the famous Savile Row tuxedo but hundreds more came within an inch of the 007 role. In this new exclusive four-part series, ROBERT SELLERS (author of the controversial book Battle for Bond) tells the extraordinary story of how cinema’s most famous role was cast, featuring exclusive contributions from Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Sam Neill, Ian Ogilvy, Oliver Tobias, Michael Billington, Adrian Paul, Peter Snow, Michael Craig, Rikki Lee Travolta, Julian Glover, Michael Jayston and many others. (Featuring many never-before-featured facts)
    • “Balloon, mein herr?”
      LUKE WILLIAMS examines the fascinating parallels between the film versions of Graham Greene’s The Third Man (1949) and Ian Fleming’s The Living Daylights (1987).
