FSWL previews the deluxe tribute issue of Dr. No (1962) published by Cinema Retro. The new issue ships to European customers in November and the rest of the world in December.

To celebrate one of the most important cinematic events of all time - the 50th anniversary of the James Bond films - CR is devoting issue #4 of its highly popular 'Movie Classics' publication entirely to the film that started it all - Dr. No.

• From the first day of production back in January 1962 to the film's premiere in October that same year, CR promise you the most detailed and in-depth tribute to this ground-breaking film ever. Featuring articles and contributions by over 19 writers including directors Joe Dante and Brian Trenchard-Smith, former United Artists Vice-President of Production David Picker (the man who gave the green light to begin production on the Bond films) and exclusive new interviews with Sir Ken Adam (by Sir Christopher Frayling), poster artist Mitchell Hooks, actress Marguerite Le Wars, 007 logo designer Joseph Caroff, composer Monty Norman, Ron Quelch (property buyer), Norman Wanstall (sound FX/dubbing), Yvonne Shima (Sister Lily), the late Timothy Moxon (Strangways) and many of the Jamaican musicians and actors including Count Prince Miller and Charles Edghill - one of the three blind beggars!

• A WORLD EXCLUSIVE interview with Honey Ryder herself - Ursula Andress, and the amazing news that writer Matthew Field has tracked down and interviewed screenwriter Johanna Harwood, who has never disclosed her stories relating to Dr. No - until now!

No other magazine in the world can deliver the kind of in-depth fact-filled information that Cinema Retro can as they cover the locations (then and now), posters, cast and crew biographies, and an amazing wealth of rare photographs, including toys and memorabilia and behind the scenes shots.
