No 30 of MI6 Confidential (English Bond Magazine)

By: FSWL team
Mi6 confidential issue 30
New issue of the English fanzine MI6 Confidential, issue 30, a special dedicated to three James Bond films directed by Lewis Gilbert - You Only Live Twice (1967), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Moonraker (1979) (1979).


MI6 Confidential, the full-colour magazine celebrating the world of James Bond 007, returns with its thirtieth issue, THE MONORAIL TRILOGY.

Although the early sequels to Dr. No (1962) quickly billed themselves as 'bigger' than past adventures, nothing quite topped Lewis Gilbert's three contributions in terms of scale. With new, exclusive interviews with the director himself and legendary production designer Ken Adam, this issue reflects on the grandeur of You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me, and Moonraker - what they've cheekily dubbed in-house as the 'monorail trilogy'.

As well as an exhaustive twenty-page production history of the trilogy, MI6 celebrate the life and work of the late Richard Kiel, who played the enigmatic but lovable Jaws in both Spy and Moonraker. Making it 'big' really is a theme for this issue.

Articles in this issue:
• The Monorail Trilogy - The Bond films of Lewis Gilbert
You Only Live Twice - From volcano lairs to villainous vixens
The Spy Who Loved Me - Nobody does it better than Cubby Broccoli
Moonraker - Taking James Bond further than ever before
