| How do you do Mr Bond
This is the Eon sanctioned documentary on 50 years of James Bond films.

The documentary Everything Or Nothing: The Untold Story Of 007 could had been a fluffy celebratory piece like many other documentaries but it is rather warts and all approach.

Although I reckon some of the unedifying stuff has been left out. You still get a lot more behind the scenes information and footage than previous similar documentaries.

Five of the six actors who have played James Bond take part. Sean Connery who seems to have had a big falling out with the Bond producers in the past does not take part but instead archive interviews are used.

As Roger Moore implies here, the Scots can certainly hold a grudge.

There have been several spiky moments for the Bond producers over the last five decades that get a good airing here. The first being getting the rights and bringing the films into fruition.

Then Fleming collaborating with Kevin McClory which meant McClory was a thorn for years resulting in the rival film Never say Never again in 1983 with Connery.

Then there was the problem when Connery wanted to leave the role and being replaced by George Lazenby who himself left under acrimonious circumstances after one movie.

We then have Roger Moore who took over Bond and then the parting of the ways between Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, the two producers who started the series. Saltzman's sold his rights to United Artist.

Moore who found the right blend with The Spy who loved me, maybe stayed in the role for too long as the producers were unwilling to replace him in the early 1980s.

Moore certainly looked creaky in his last Bond film. He was older than the actual mother of the Bond Girl, Tanya Roberts.

When there was dispute over the availability Pierce Brosnan, Albert Broccoli had to go for Timothy Dalton before there was the 6 years hiatus in new Bond films because of litigation.

There was a relaunch with Brosnan finally in the role and up to the present day with Daniel Craig and the partial reboot of Bond.

It is a great primer for those new to Bond and want some juicy behind the scenes gossip and hard information as to what it takes keeping such a successful franchise going for 50 years.

There is plenty of archive footage (as many of the main movers and shakers have passed on) and scenes from the movies and some humour as well.
