Disney CEO Bob Iger would buy James Bond if it was for sale:https://www.digitalspy.com/movies/a30204388/james-bond-disney-bob-iger/

If you ask me Disney already owns enough IP's and I am perfectly fine a new movie every two to three years. Their have been times, I worry that Disney is oversaturating Star Wars and Marvel Comics fans with all of the movie releases and tv shows on Disney +. I would much rather have a new video game based on an original story, the comic book series from Dynamite comics and a decent novel in between films.

Re: The 007 Scrapbook .

From George Lazenby, on FaceBook-

Hey guys - Recently, the worst aspects of the tabloid press have taken some words of mine out of context. I'd like to correct the sentiments I allegedly expressed.
For the record, I have never given a recent interview to the UK's Daily Star or Daily Mail tabloids.
More importantly, as an 80 year old man, I commented on changing societal attitudes. The misleading headline ignores my main point: it's not a bad thing, just different.
I was the son of a smart, strong woman who raised me with equality with an independent sister. I have been married twice to very smart, intelligent women. I have 3 incredibly smart, intelligent daughters.
I worked in the fashion industry in the 1960s, a place where women led men in terms of career and progress and pay.
As somewhat of a hippie in the late Sixties and early Seventies, I fully supported and cheered on the female emancipation movement from the Patriarchy.
Of course things have changed and so they should. Bond was once described, correctly, as a "sexist, misogynist dinosaur." I may be a dinosaur but it would miss the point to describe me as the other words.
I have huge respect and admiration for all genders. At a time when we are seeing we have far to progress on equality, I hope I can be known as The Spy Who Loved #MeToo.

I won't give a link to the tabloids Mr Lazenby mentions. You can find them easily enough if you like.

ajb007/martini  Nice to see old George setting the record straight.  Personally I wouldn't
believe anything in the tabloids.

Re: The 007 Scrapbook .

Nice to hear George say that. Tabloids are notorious for quoting people out of context and making up their own stories based on words people said. I applaud George for making this statement.

Though I would suspect he's wrong about the fashion industry. Many women may have had power in that industry for a long time (like Coco Chanel), but historically there have been more men at the top of fashion. Men have abused power in that industry in horrible ways too.

What did the tabloids say?

Re: The 007 Scrapbook .

As I said two posts earlier, I'm not giving a link to them. Why encourage them? The British press are (mainly) uninformative, biased, and given too much credence and attention for their ever-diminishing circulation.

Re: The 007 Scrapbook .

My mistake- I should have said "deeply biased".

Re: The 007 Scrapbook .

In my opinion Paula Vacker (from Gardner's "Icebreaker") was an unrealistic name for a character, unlike realistic and everyday names like Pussy Galore  ajb007/lol. The character is from Finland, but the country was a part of Sweden for hpundreds of years.  Scandinavian last names are usually from a place (Dahl) or son of someone in the bloodline (names ending with -sen or -son), not dicriptive names like Vacker (Beautiful). But today I learned that the Swedish army historically often renamed their soldiers to avoid having thousands of soldiers with names like Andersson or Karlsson. These names were sometimes discriptive, simply a result of a clerk looking at some recruit and using whatever he noticed about him as a name. At least one military family in Sweden is called Fager, a synonyme of Vacker.
