James Bond - 50 years

Fifty years of Bond movies! All those gadgets and designer clothes plus trailers from some of the iconic movies they're all on exhibition at the Barbican "Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style".
While standing in the queue to get in we debated how many movies could we name and how many actors played James Bond. How many can you name?
What about many of the other big name actors who also appeared - Robbie Coltrane as
Zukovsky? Diana Rigg as Mrs Bond? etc ...
Who could forget Q's futuristic (at the time) super spy gadgets and accessories ... the car phone, underwater breather, the radio active homing pill, and the Bell Textron jet pack being just a few.

This is a great exhibition that shouldn't be missed. It finishes 5 September so get down there.

Would be fun to visit this exhibition. The Swedish Security Service had a party recently that the Swedish taxpayers had to pay for. It costed 5 000 000 SEK. The party had a James Bond theme.

He's positively oozing of Bond-ness! I'd be hopeless at naming names, though remember an exhibit *many* years ago at the Design Museum - of tiny cameras perfect for spying. It was a cool & Bondsian (real word?) museum moment.
