Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

Very sad to hear about Burt. I've seen him in so many things, and he was always spectacular. From the frequency he appeared on television and in film, he must have been the only Asian actor working in England in the 1960s. I loved him in Noble House opposite Pierce Brosnan.

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

To me there is no sadness for someone who has lived a long and productive life.  Thank you Guy Hamilton for the Bond movies. They will be enjoyed for years to come by future generations.

Very sad to hear that. I didn't know he was in Goldfinger.

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

There's a pic of him in the film somewhere, but it's very low-res.

Are we sure about this credit? We are all pretty obsessive about these films, yet I've never ever heard that he was in this film. What was an American television producer doing at Pinewood in the early sixties (while he was working on Make Room For Daddy)? I'm certainly willing to admit I'm wrong, but can anyone verify that this uncredited hoodlum was Garry Marshall, because I have my doubts.

It was on IMDB. Then again, the world and his wife can write anything on there.

It looks like Garry Marshall, but you're probably right that it's not him. He was writing for a number of American television shows at that time and wasn't working on anything outside of LA. But it's possible he took a trip to England to meet with someone, and they just happened to need someone that day who looked like an Italian-American gangster.

I've just found out that Gary Dubin has died from cancer. He is the little boy in DAF at the water guns at Circus Circus. He gets annoyed when Tiffany Case wins the giant stuffed toy. RIP.

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

Shirt maker Frank Foster has died at age 93. He made almost every shirt Roger Moore and George Lazenby wore as James Bond, as well as some shirts for Sean Connery as Bond. He was involved with creating costume for more Bond films than any other person was. Here's an article I wrote in his memory:

RIP Frank Foster. Bond had some of the coolest shirts in film history IMO.

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

I just read on 007 Magazine's Facebook page that stunt man Steve Truglia who worked on TND and TWINE has died at the age of 54 in an  accidental fall from a helicopter during an abseiling race in China. RIP to a brave and talented man.

Surprised by the death of Chris Cornell at the early age of 52. "You Know My Name" was an excellent contribution to the Bond title songs. RIP.
