Pre-order a signed and dedicated Eunice Gayson biography

05-Jul-2012 • Collecting

Our friends over at BondStars.com are offering the chance for fans to order dedicated and signed copies of the forthcoming autobiography: "The First Lady of Bond".

Eunice Gayson was the first Bond when she appeared in Dr No as 007’s girlfriend Sylvia Trench in 1962, and she reprised the role for From Russia With Love the following year.

Her opening scene with Sean Connery, set across the gaming tables of Les Ambassadeurs Club in London, has since gone down in film history and her prompting Sean to deliver the most famous line in the movies, ‘Bond, James Bond’ gives Eunice a very special place in our celluloid history.

In her autobiography she talks about landing the Bond role, through her earlier association with Terence Young; about her friendship with Sean Connery, who she knew before Bond through her first husband who had employed him on a film; the wardrobe problems on her first day when she ‘blended in with the wallpaper’ and of how Sean Connery was so wracked with nerves he couldn’t deliver the famous line ... until that is Eunice had taken him for a liquid lunch in the Pinewood restaurant. These and many other stories are hilariously related in The First Lady Of Bond.

A signed copy of the book starts from £33.00, including postage and packaging.
