    It was only a stand alone film that had very little to do with the films and more with what was written by McElroy. Mainly his book.

It had Sean Connery taking back his classic role to finish up his story.

    Yes, they were. MGM has used it for the original series. That's why not once in the films through "Die Another Day" is a reference made to their being more than one Bond. Not for Lazenby, Moore, Dalton and Brosnan.

This is because the history of 007 is secretive, the previous Bond just retired and there was only one Bond at a time. References were made over time to each Bond being the new guy.

In "Die Another Day" Bond was suspended not replaced.

    Benard Lee was well respected by EON productions. That's why he was not used in "For Your Eyes Only". Robert Fox, who played a different character was brought in for "Octopussy". There was questions about his being a different M, but overall, he was the same man. Dench was brought in to be more PC and to create a fresh spin. There, she outright says that she is the new M and does not share the same attitude towards James that the last guy did. Q was being replaced since Desmond Llewelyn was getting on in years and it was decided to retire his character. Lois Maxwell was recast as it was decided that since Dalton was younger than her and Moore, it would make sense to recast rather than kill Moneypenny off as Maxwell wanted. But it was still the same Moneypenny, who had feelings for Bond.

The point you make is that yes all the old characters retired with younger characters taking their place along with their code names. The old Ms. Moneypenny told the Brosnan Bond she too was retiring. In the next film a new young Mr. Moneypenny took her place.

    Yes, but there's still a significant precentage that does not. Including those under the age of sixteen. They would be easily brought in if they could find it in their local grocery store.

True, but I doubt it would make much of a difference.


      I think there is more than enough distribution available but the single issue paper format just doesn't quite work for today.

    By what criteria do you base that on?

Amazon.com and other big online distributors.
