James Bond: History is as dramatic as the movies Reuters | 05-Oct 11:54 AM London: As a new documentary shows, the real story behind the James Bond film franchise is almost as dramatic as the 007 fantasies themselves, full of twists and turns, personality clashes, heroes, villains, beautiful women and narrow escapes. 'Everything or Nothing' is released in theatres on Friday, branded 'Global James Bond Day' to mark 50 years since the world premiere of 'Dr. No' which introduced author Ian Fleming's suave, sophisticated secret agent to the masses. An anniversary Blu-ray box set, a swanky charity auction at Christie's and the new '007' fragrance for men are some of the ways in which Bond is being celebrated, underlining the lasting appeal of a character who has been constantly reinvented. A measure of the fictional spy's popularity in Britain came during the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics, when Bond actor Daniel Craig and Queen Elizabeth shared a short, comic and hugely popular scene filmed in Buckin ...

Seamless royal spin , Mary Ma , Tuesday, July 31, 2012 The public outcry over the government's plan to launch the national education subject in schools is so tense that it pitches tens of thousands of people against the new administration, with worried parents accusing the authorities of trying to brainwash their children. On the other side of the globe, a national education exercise is also under way. But the effect is entirely different. On Friday, Queen Elizabeth became the latest "Bond girl" as part of a parachute stunt for the London Olympics Opening Ceremony. The performance seemed well received at home, giving the solemn and serious image of the royal family a lighter touch. It's a "movie" debut for the queen. Escorted by Daniel Craig - the latest actor to play James Bond - the 86-year- old monarch, wearing a peach cocktail dress, left Buckingham Palace, ostensibly to board a helicopter and glide down to the Olympic Stadium with a Union Jack parachute. As the queen showed up at the stadium, she di ...

Loved the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics last night. Loved how started with the children choirs singing in Northern Ireland Scotland Wales and in the stadium. I was almost fighting back tears then. Loved how they had the different scenes on the stadium floor. Sir Kenneth Branagh gave a great speech just like he had done in the movie Henry V. Laughed when they had the Queen parachuting from the helicopter with James Bond. When I saw the London cabbies face painted in the Union Jack I told myself that would had been me. I thought it was great knowing the Queen has that sense of humor an that she wanted to be in that part of the show. I bet her family had a good laugh as they watched it. I knew it had to have been hard keeping it a secret from them. Then when the children sang and signed God Save the Queen that was when the tears started flowing. The music on the part with the house made me feel old. Loved the Mary Poppins part. Mr Bean was hillarious. The lighting of the coldrun was great now ...
