John Cork and his compatriots from the Ian Fleming Foundation, who have created outstanding documentaries for most of MGM's 007 DVDs, provide a fine overview of the life and times of James Bond's creator (found on the LIVING DAYLIGHTS DVD). Rather than using voice-over narrative, Cork and company tell this story entirely through the recollections of Fleming's family, friends and colleagues, combining new interviews with archival footage (including conversations with Fleming himself). As one who has long been fascinated with Fleming and his famous creation, I find this collection of anecdotes, photos and film quite fulfilling; it's marvelous to be able to see and hear so many of the people about whom I've been reading for the past twenty years. No fan of Fleming will want to miss this.
