The book places the films in the context of their times, showing how producers Albert Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman drew inspiration from the Cold War and from suave, glamorous icons like Hugh Hefner and JFK, and how later world events shaped story lines -- and even how closely the series presaged actual technological developments. As the films move into their fifth decade, the book traces the total Bond impact, through fashion, the Austin Powers films, the Robbie Williams video, and much more, on a whole new generation.Illustrated with over 550 rare photographs, illustrations, and storyboards from the Bond archives, James Bond: The Legacy ties in with major events and promotions marking 007's 40th anniversary. This will be a must-have book for the 2002 holiday season.
