MI6 Confidential issue 42, volume 11, october 2017
George Lazenby is nothing if not an independent spirit. He charmed the producers into testing him for Bond, and he shocked everyone when he declined to reappear as the world’s most famous spy. Since making the decision to step down after just one Bond film, 007 has cast a shadow over his whole career. In this issue, we find out how Lazenby has dealt with the fame and infamy of being the “one-time” Bond.

MI6 also investigates the relationship between Lazenby and his leading lady, Diana Rigg, asks how Fleming responded to the filmmakers decisions in print, and throws a spotlight on the work of Paul Gulacy, the artist behind the ‘Serpent’s Tooth’ comic books.

MI6 Confidential Special Publication #1:
The Peter Lamont Portfolio

In 2017, after ten years of service, MI6 Confidential has introduced a new special format: a limited-run 100-page perfect bound issue of the magazine taking a deep dive into one particular facet of the franchise. This first special issue was contributed by Oscar-winning art department veteran Peter Lamont.

mi6 confidential limited edition peter lamont live and let die

Peter Lamont spent more than 40 years working in art departments of the James Bond films. From draughtsman to production designer; from Goldfinger to Casino Royale, Peter worked on every picture but one. One of the films for which he has collected a great deal of documents and has many fond memories is Roger Moore's debut as 007, Live And Let Die.

A lot of that material could not be squeezed into his recent autobiography, so Peter came to MI6 Confidential with an offer too good to refuse. In this special 100-page perfect bound edition of MI6 Confidential magazine, Peter tells the story of making the film, location by location, as they appear in the film. It is lavishly illustrated with rare stills from the film, behind the scenes photographs never committed to print, and notes and storyboards from Lamont's personal collection. Let our friend and Bond veteran be your guide to the eighth official Bond adventure and Sir Roger Moore's first.
