It was announced today in the papers that Karin Dor, who played Osato's assistant Helga Brandt, in You Only Live Twice had died aged 79.

There is a new magazine called Bond In Motion which is being launched by Eaglemoss and will feature a Bond vehicle each week - I seem to recall this happened a few years ago and the collections started to appear on Ebay sometime later.

You can tell by the way Connery plays the scene with his facial reaction to being offered the wrong Martini that its been scripted so that Bond doesn't offend him.

Actually I need to clear up a couple misconceptions:

In the first 5 novels Bond was carrying a Beretta 418 .25 ACP which was an autopistol NOT a revolver. What Boothroyd originally wrote was:

"I have, by now, got rather fond of Mr. James Bond. I like most of the things about him, with the exception of his rather deplorable taste in firearms. In particular, I dislike a man who comes into contact with all sorts of formidable people using a .25 Beretta. This sort of gun is really a lady's gun, and not a really nice lady at that. If Mr. Bond has to use a light gun he would be better off with a .22 rim fire; the lead bullet would cause more shocking effect than the jacketed type of the .25.

May I suggest that Mr. Bond be armed with a revolver?"


This led to a response from Ian Fleming (see below) and during the back and forth correspondence Bond wound up with a 7.65mm Walther PPK although Boothroyd always maintained Bond should carry a revolver.



The BBC ran a short clip to accompany Goldfinger where the real Boothroyd is introduced by Sean Connery.

It's available as an extra on the Dr. No Ultimate Edition DVD and on YouTube
