Your turn now, MTM.
What did Charlie Higson (of Young Bond fame) do that no other James Bond author has ever done ? Clue : that's something Mickey Spillane has also done.
Sorry, I realise I let this thread die!
In the Miss Marple episode "A Carribbean Mystery", featuring Julia MacKenzie as the elderly detective, the sleuthing spinster meets a journalist named Ian Fleming (played by Jeremy Crutchley), who tells her that he's writing a spy story, but is stuck because he can't find a name for his character. They go to a lecture by an ornithologist, who presents himself thus : "My name is Bond, James Bond". It is, indeed the ornithologist whose name Ian Fleming used as his hero's name (and we see him note it in his notebook). James Bond is played here by the writer of the episode, Charlie Higson. The funny thing is that this scene brings together three Bond writers : Ian Fleming, of course, Charlie Higson, and... Agatha Christie herself, who in the '30's wrote a James Bond short story, The Rajah's Emerald, way before Ian Fleming put pen to paper to write about the most famous fictional syp in the world.
Your turn, MTM.
Good question, I’ll actually come up with one this time :D
Which Bond Girl from the 60s received a tribute in a Bond movie in the 80s ?
That one is really easy, so no clue. You should be able to find the answer.
Here's one I discovered recently : Britt Eckland is the only Bond Girl to have been (fill in the blanks) twice. And each time, it was related to James Bond.
Well, I must admit that calling a cat "Pussy" doesn't, for me, really qualify as an hommage to a female person that was also called "Pussy", especially with the added surname "Galore". "Pussy" is just as generic for a cat as it gets. If Stacey couldn't think of another name for her feline, it's just lack of creativity.
