Reviews - What do customers think about James Bond, The Spy I Loved?

Enjoyable read  Sep 26, 2007
The two films penned by Christopher Wood in the late 70s (The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker) have generated much debate amongst fans, in perpetrating a more flippant Bond, and in Moonraker a comic, ridiculous one. So, How much of the finished product is the writer responsible for? How does he/she get selected for the job and what is it like to join such an established, successful team? Frightening? Invigorating? Overwhelming?

It's all in there, in this humourous account of Wood's input into the aforementioned movies, and his "Confessions of..." books and films). There are many interesting tidbits in this slim volume, told in an amusing and self-deprecating fashion, not least of all the powerbroking and mechanics of Cubby Broccoli et al AND how various plot points and dialogue made it into the finished films.

Mostly, this is an enjoyable read, and at 170 odd pages, not a long one. There are errors, some grammatical and others regarding detail ("it's a pity they were unable to use the Lawrence of Arabia theme in Spy." Say what?). But then, this is not a reference book, it is a memoir or a reminiscence, and the author is only noting facts the way he recalls them. He knows this, admits as much, and that's part of the book's appeal - sort of an "I was there and it was cool" account.

A thoroughly worthwhile Bond companion piece.
