Mr Wint in DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER 1971

FSWL contributor Aaron Cattermer, Andy Miller and Jürgen Hartmann met up with Bruce Glover at Autographica in Birmingham in September 2013.

Aaron added: "Bruce was a gentleman and very popular guest. He mentioned this was his first signing in 12 years and his first visit to the UK since the filming of Diamonds Are Forever (1971). He also spoke very proudly about his son, actor Crispin Glover."

Andy said: "What a guy, so full of life and still working in the film industry and was off to work on a film in Poland after the event. I told him that DAF was the first Bond film I ever saw, and he was thrilled to think that he and Putter Smith were the first Bond villans that I ever saw on the big screen! Bruce is a real character and explained what an honour it was to have worked with Sean Connery."
