Lisl and Fleming became lifelong friends, and in 1960 Fleming
signed a copy of his latest James Bond installment "For
Your Eyes Only" (a collection of five short stories) to
Lisl with the personal inscription "noch ein paar Eier für
Ostern!" ("yet another pair of eggs for Easter").

in the fifth short story in the collection is named Lisl
Upon Fleming's death in 1964, he left Lisl £500 in his
Lisl later said that "all the things said about Ian --
his gloom, his melancholy, his solitariness -- frankly amaze.
To all of us who knew him in Kitzbuhel he was exactly the
opposite -- gay, carefree, terribly happy, the most exciting
and vital sort of person. Not like an Englishman at all".
Lisl Popper makes a brief appearance in archive footage
used in the documentary "Ian Fleming - 007's Creator" on
"The Living Daylights" Special Edition DVD.
