9780750964210: Some Kind of Hero: The Remarkable Story of the James Bond Films

For over 50 years, Albert R. Broccoli's Eon Productions has navigated the ups and downs of the volatile British film industry, enduring both critical wrath and acclaim in equal measure for its now legendary James Bond series. Latterly, this family run business has been crowned with box office gold and recognised by motion picture academies around the world. However, it has not always been plain sailing. Changing financial regimes forced 007 to relocate to France and Mexico; changing fashions and politics led to box office disappointments; and changing studio regimes and business disputes all but killed the franchise. And the rise of competing action heroes has constantly questioned Bond's place in popular culture. But against all odds the filmmakers continue to wring new life from the series, and 2012's Skyfall saw both huge critical and commercial success, crowning 007 as the undisputed king of the action genre. Some Kind of Hero recounts this remarkable story, from its origins in the early '60s right through to the present day, and draws on hundreds of unpublished interviews with the cast and crew of this iconic series.

In 2008, he penned the autobiography of Oscar-winning film producer Michael Deeley: Blade Runners, Deer Hunters and Blowing the Bloody Doors Off! He was an editorial consultant on the film Everything or Nothing, which marked the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film series, and regularly contributes on the world of Bond for MI6 Confidential and Cinema Retro. He currently serves on the board of directors of The Ian Fleming® Foundation and works full-time for a leading London-based entertainment PR agency.

Ajay Chowdhury was born in London and read Law at university there and in the Netherlands. He has since provided legal advice on various motion picture, music, publishing, television and theatrical projects. He was the associate producer on two feature films, Lost Dogs and Flirting with Flamenco. In 2012, he penned the screenplay to the award-winning, Olympic-themed short, A Human Race. Ajay is the spokesperson for The James Bond International Fan Club, established in 1979. He edited their James Bond journal, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and for the last two decades has contributed to numerous books and magazines on the James Bond legacy. He is regularly called upon by worldwide media to commentate on all things 007.
