I thoroughly enjoyed this book, being both a James Bond fan and a fan of films generally. However, I must confess that I am ever so slightly biased as about two years ago I was fortunate enough to have lunch with Lewis Gilbert. He was utterly fascinating and a lovely man full of amazing stories not just about the Bond films but about film making generally. He provided an insight into the actors he has worked with over the years (from the good and the great through to the awful) as well as a few revelations about how some of the big studios worked. He told me during our meeting that he was writing his autobiography and I have eagerly awaited it. It did not disappoint. I am with Michael Winner on this one. His review went something along the lines of ... buy it, it is a great read. Simple as that.
