Issue #39 devotes a full 32 pages to celebrating the 50th anniversary of
the James Bond film "You Only Live Twice", which starred Sean Connery
as 007 and introduced Donald Pleasence as the immortal villain Ernst
Stavro Blofeld. Why did we dedicate half of the pages in this issue to
the film? Largely because of the outpouring of contributions from
talented writers from around the world, not to mention esteemed names
like composer David Arnold, actress Karin Dor, who played the villainous
femme fatale Helga Brandt, Tsai Chin who played Bond's bedmate in the
pre-credits scene, legendary lyricist Leslie Bricusse, assistant
director William Cartlidge, future Oscar-winning production designer
Peter Lamont and Nancy Sinatra, who recalls the nerve-wracking
experience of singing the title song. Plus in-depth looks at composer
John Barry, the cars of "You Only Live Twice", the inside story behind
the Little Nellie autogyro, "now and then" photos of key locations and a
Bondwagon full of rare photos and promotional art, some of which are
published here for the first time- plus a look at all the accompanying
international 007 collectibles.
Issue #39 also concludes our celebration of the life and career of
actress Susan George and examines the kinky little-seen crime thriller
"Night Hair Child" (aka "What the Peeper Saw") plus the
obscure-but-worthy cult flick "Deadly Strangers" starring Hayley Mills-
plus tributes to the late, great Sir Roger Moore.
