1. 'The Spy Who Loved Me' Screening in Hollywood

    By Athena Stamos on 2004-07-22

    American Cinematheque at The Egyptian Theatre is proud to present the 5th Annual Festival of Fantasy, Horror & Science-Fiction from August 5-29, 2004. During the Festival, James Bond Girl Caroline Munro (The Spy Who Loved Me) will be making two personal appearances: one on Saturday August 7th at 5pm and the other on Sunday August 8th at 6:30pm. Her appearance on August 8th is the one of most interest to Bond fans seeing as the Egyptian Theater will be showing The Spy Who Loved Me as a double feature along with Munro’s Starcrash in the 616-seat Lloyd E Rigler Theater. Between films there will be discussion with the actress, which you won’t want to miss.

    Sunday, August 8 – 6:30 PM

    Starcrash (1979, Concorde/New Horizons, 92 Min) Director Luigi Cozzi (aka Lewis Coates). The 1970s saw many comic book style heroines popping up in genre films, and Caroline Munro gets to do her Barbarella-best in her turn as Stella Starr, allied with Akton (Marjoe Gortner) against the wicked Count Zarth Arn (Joe Spinell). A supremely goofy, whacked out knock-off of ‘Star Wars’, Barbarella, & the old ‘Flash Gordon’ serials. Co-starring David Hasselhoff and Christopher Plummer as Emperor of the Universe, with a fine score by John Barry (of the James Bond films).

    The Spy Who Loved Me (1977, MGM/UA, 125 min) Director Lewis Gilbert. Easily the best of the 1970’s James Bond films, TSWLM stars the impeccable Roger Moore as Bond 007, teamed with icy Russian agent Anya Amasova (Barbara Bach) against underwater kingpin Karl Stromburg (Curt Jurgens) and his lethal arsenal – which includes metal-toothed hitman Jaws (Richard Kiel) and femme fatale Naomi (Caroline Munro). Terrific stunts, a sharp, witty script by Christopher Wood and sexy, world-saving adventure courtesy of Roger Moore & company — everything a James Bond film should be.
