' This is the end ' says the first line of the Opening Song in the film,and it is indeed, the end of Super-man Bond, who in this movie, is 'killed' in the very first fight sequence! 50 years after the Bond Series unleashed itself on the s...

A Grand Launch for BIFF chez Bond

user
You might expect James Bond's London town-house to be securely guarded, so it took a flurry of e-mails and some guest-list confusion with the doorman to be ushered into the elegant home of Eon Productions, at the Hyde Park Corner end of Piccadilly, for the Launch of the 15th Bradford International Film Festival (on Thursday 26th February 2009).

This was never more true than with the Roger Moore era...
