In 1963, Ian Fleming, the creator of the 20th century’s greatest fictional character was in court, accused of plagiarism.
This book explores the evidence that the screen version of James Bond was not Fleming’s creation. It was the creation of Jack Whittingham, who was employed by maverick producer Kevin McClory to adapt the character to the big screen. Had this screen character never been developed, James Bond might have been just another minor fictional spy character.
The Battle for Bond is a tale of bitter recriminations, betrayal, multi-million dollar lawsuits and even death. It is the fabled story of Kevin McClory’s 40 year legal battle over the rights to the screen version of James Bond, which he and Whittingham had created.
The first edition of this book was banned by the Ian Fleming Will Trust. But the truth never dies!
THE CRITICS RAVED ABOUT THE FIRST EDITION:
“A brilliant page-turner with all the qualities of a thriller, this is easily the best film book of the year.”
“Robert Sellers’ dedication and thorough investigation into this Bond story results in a book that is a must for any serious fan of the franchise.”
Cinema Retro Magazine
“The most important book ever published about the evolution of Ian Fleming’s James Bond… a must read!”
Graham Rye – 007 Magazine
