Dance for Bond

Video Find of the Day

I actually read all of the James Bond novels in the early 60s, and read most of them before seeing the movies. That was in sharp contrast to my lazy post-graduate years-and-on-to-today habit of only reading the book if the movie makes me want to. My favorite of the James Bond novels was From Russia with Love. I remember it as one of the darkest portrayals of a hero I had read up until then. Ian Fleming's Bond was not pretty, and I thought he was least pretty in that book. If only I had seen the movie first, I might have had better reasons to read the book.
