1. The Battle for Bond with Robert Sellers in Sheffield

    By Devin Zydel on 2009-10-01


    Off the Shelf 2009, Sheffield’s annual celebration of writing and reading, will feature author Robert Sellers in attendance this year along with a screening of 1965’s Thunderball.

    Sellers will be discussing his controversial and explosive best seller The Battle for Bond in which he argues that the screen version of James Bond was not Ian Fleming’s creation. The Ian Fleming Trust tried to ban this book, as it tells the story of how Fleming appeared in court accused of plagiarism.

    The Battle for Bond is probably the most important book ever published about the evolution of James Bond and this event a must for all fans of 007. The talk will be followed by a screening of the new digital print of the classic Bond film Thunderball. This will be the first screening of this print outside of London!

    This 007 event will be taking place at 5:00pm on Saturday, 31 October at the Showroom Cinema.

    Tickets cost £4.00 – £6.00. To purchase tickets or for further information about attending, phone 0114 275 7727 or visit the official website.
