THE SPY WHO LOVED ME
Directed by LEWIS GILBERT Screenplay by CHRISTOPHER WOOD and RICHARDMAIBAUM
Jottings found on the screening-room floor after a critics' viewing of the new James Bond film:
They'll never top first stunt: skier hurtles off precipice. Long breathtaking plunge. Shucks off skis in midair, free-falls for a while, then opens parachute and floats earthward. Wow.
Does anybody know this flick has nothing to do with 1962 novel of same name, since Ian Fleming nixed sale of anything but title to movies? Does anybody care? All that's left of Bond formula here...
