'GUNS, GIRLS AND GADGETS - SIXTIES SPY FILMS UNCOVERED'

_________________________________________________________________________________

The 1960s was a watershed era for the spy movie genre. From James Bond to Matt Helm, U.N.C.L.E. to Bulldog Drummond, Harry Palmer to Derek Flint, and many others beside, a new generation of glamorous characters with an eye for danger was dominating our cinema screens.

With Dr No and From Russia With Love, Ian Fleming and Eon Productions had found both a winning and successful formula and these first 007 movies inspired many other filmmakers to enter the genre and present many different rivals, imitators and spoofs of the masterspy James Bond.

Written by TV and movie historian Michael Richardson, Guns, Girls, and Gadgets is an indispensable guide to 50 productions which assisted in forming the 60s movie spy craze.
