In October 2002, the lovely Miss Lois Chiles was in Chicago co-promoting her documentary "Bond Girls Are Forever" at the Landmark's Century Centre Cinema during the 38th Annual Chicago International Film Festival.

Lois and Maud Adams were here to support fellow Bond girl Maryam d'Abo, producer of the documentary Bond Girls Are Forever. Miss d'Abo chose this particular time to premier her documentary in order to coincide with the 40th anniversary celebration of the James Bond film series.

The theatre was filled with Bond fans eager to view the film. Before the screening, the three stars had an enticing and informative Q and A session from the stage followed by a short 007 trivia contest. The lucky winners of the contest were rewarded with posters autographed by all three Bond girls.

Miss d'Abo's documentary was very well received by the audience. Bond Girls Are Forever contained revealing interviews with nearly all of the leading Bond Girls from the 20 films including the legendary Honor Blackman, Jane Seymour and Halle Berry.

After the screening, Lois, Maud and Maryam met with the audience in the lobby where they graciously and patiently posed for photos and signed autographs. The three Bond Girls basked in the limelight.

Editor's Note:
Besides Maryam d'Abo's Bond Girls Are Forever documentary, an excellent book and DVD was produced with the same title. Maryam wrote the book with famous James Bond expert John Cork. Both items is pictured here plus a photo of our dear friend Colin Clark with Lois Chiles in Chicago.

In 2006, a new version of the documentary including interviews with cast from Casino Royale and edited to include commercial breaks, was produced for the AMC network and later released as a bonus feature on the March 2007 DVD and Blu-Ray editions of CR.
