This Never Happened to the Other Fella

Sydney filmmaker and Bond aficionado Andrew Lumley has spent about a decade of his life getting to know Lazenby and has created a film-length documentary about the actor’s life.

‘Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007’ to Air on ITV 4

Everything or Nothing The Untold Stories of 007

“‘Everything Or Nothing’ focuses on three men with a shared dream – Bond producers Albert R. Broccoli, Harry Saltzman and author Ian Fleming. It’s the thrilling and inspiring narrative behind the longest running film franchise in cinema history which began in 1962. With unprecedented access both to the key players involved and to Eon Productions’ extensive archive, this is the first time the inside story of the franchise has ever been told on screen in this way. Director Stevan Riley follows a story that begins with a ground-breaking spy thriller and continues six Bonds and five decades later. While Bond was saving the world from chaos and catastrophe on screen, this compelling documentary draws back the curtain to reveal the battles, threats and real stakes unfolding behind the camera.”

Channel: ITV 4
Date: Sunday, 20 August, 2017
