The official James Bond sites 40th Annivesary section which is answering questions by James Bond, The Legacy authors John Cork and Bruce Scivally has today updated.
The question is in reference to Ian Fleming’s reported appearance in From Russian With Love;
First off, great work with the book. I received a review copy yesterday, and I’ve only flicked through a few pages, but so far I’m amazed at the whole thing. I’d buy the book for the pictures alone. Really impressed and as a Bond fan, really greatful!
My question is directed at FRWL. Is there anything in the Eon Productions archives, any bit of information from a crew member, anything at all, that hints at whether or not that is Ian Fleming that can be seen standing near the Orient Express? If there’s one mystery of the Bond world I’d love to see wrapped up, it would be this.
Regards, Daniel Dykes
