Ian Fleming’s Lost James Bond Screenplay Reveals A Very Different 007

Dalya Alberge at the Observer offers a piece on Ian Fleming’s lost Moonraker screenplay, which was different than the screenplay for the silly Moonraker film that starred Roger Moore as James Bond. 

Jon Gilbert, an expert in Fleming literature, told the Observer: “This is the very first screenplay written by Fleming imagining Bond for the big screen. It is his only attempt at a film script, so it’s hugely important. It is a very Bondian scenario – a megalomaniac who wants to see the downfall of Britain.”
