Booze Bullets and Broads Bruce Scivally
Publication of Booze, Bullets and Broads by Bruce Scivally, a Kindle exclusive.

The story of Matt Helm®, spy of the Mad Men era. After his creation by Donald Hamilton, Helm went from being a literary rival of James Bond to being a cinematic rival with the production of four movies starring crooner Dean Martin as a woozy, boozy secret agent. Produced by Irving Allen, the former partner of 007 film producer Cubby Broccoli, the Helm movies influenced not only the Bond films but also Austin Powers, and remain a "guilty pleasure" viewing favorite of red-blooded males everywhere.
