This Weekend at USC: Bond, James Bond

The University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts celebrates James Bond this weekend in the Norris Theatre.

Nine Bond films will be screened, with all of the actors who played James Bond -- even George Lazenby -- represented by at least one film.

The films to be shown include my favorite Bond movie, THE SPY WHO LOVED ME. I've since seen and appreciated all of the Connery Bonds, but THE SPY WHO LOVED ME was the first James Bond movie I ever saw, and it certainly made an impression.

Professor Rick Jewell, who has taught a class on Bond this semester, will moderate panel discussions. Actors Richard Kiel and Maud Adams are among the scheduled participants.

An exhibit of Bond film memorabilia will be on display in the George Lucas Building until next February.

The detailed schedule is here.

I don't know why poor George Lazenby keeps getting "dumped on" (NOT by you Laura) by various "critics" for his performance as Bond. Especially since some of these people have never even SEEN "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" (!). I saw this film when it was first released and i thought Lazenby did a TERRIFIC turn as fact, I wanted to see him continue on with the role! OHMSS is one of the BEST Bond films ever made. It was good in 1969 and it has stood the test of time and is still wonderful....
