When Sean Became James
When Sean became James tells the story of the making of Dr No and of the unique and very different groups of men who came together to accidentally create one of the most influential films of all time.
As Barbara Broccoli, the daughter of Cubby, and producer of the current Bond franchise recalled. ‘The original filmmakers were (producers) Cubby and Harry, (writer) Ian Fleming, (director) Terence Young and Sean Connery. They all created something extraordinary. They changed cinema history. They pushed the envelope.’
