    According to Wikipedia, Zoé Oldenbourg was a russian-born french writer :

    The original title of this novel is Argile et Cendres (literally Clay and Ashes) which could be a good chapter title in a Bond novel, BTW. And it was her first published novel.

    Seems a pretty substantial writer, @Gerard, agree on the chapter title idea.

    Additionally I'd like to see Bond films with non-English titles, as Casino Royale did in a mild way.
    Or the Carte Blanche novel.

    Not saying these are exceptional. Someone's idea of fun, though.

    Found this one by happenstance :

    Apparently, it was also the title of a 1952 british movie :

    As you know, the movie Never Say Never Again was translated in french as Jamais Plus Jamais. Well, an earlier french movie was called Jamais Plus Toujours.

    Two episodes of the original Storage Wars have Bondian titles : "Live and Let Bid", and "From Russia with Chucks". Wonder if there are others among all the other versions.

    Found out today that there is a graphic novel series in France called Espions de Famille, and a few volumes of that series bear names inspired by Bond titles :
