Issue #72 of the full-colour James Bond magazine MI6 Confidential is now shipping worldwide.

MI6 Confidential Issue #44

Ian Fleming penned hundreds of thousands of words about 007, but he wrote very few about the man himself, James Bond. Readers came to understand the character through his actions. This is made clear in the rather fleeting depictions of Bond’s life outside his total duty to Queen and Country. In contrast, Bond screenwriters wasted no time and expended just a few words to tell us everything we need to know about the cinematic 007.

MI6 Confidential Issue #44

In this issue we explore both the rare glimpses of Bond’s home life, and the screenwriter’s efficiency through analysis of the screenplays for both Dr. No and Casino Royale. 

MI6 Confidential Issue #44

We also journey to Jamaica with Dr. No’s photographer and celebrate 50 years of Golden Gun, dipping into the archive to find rare interviews and marketing material from 1974.
