Den ”Goldfinger bruden” Shirley Eaton, Iden byggde på en verklig schweizisk modell.  Målade sig helt i guld så att hon kunde kvävas.

Vid inspelningen närvarade 3 läkare som hela tiden övervakade henne – dessutom lämnades en fläck på magen utifall.

I Discovery Channel Har man i tv-programmet Mythbusters testat om en människa avlider om huden täcks med guldfärg.

Denna hypotes ställdes av Ian Fleming i boken Goldfinger var alltså falskt, människor trodde på denna hypotes och det var  sannt! det var den alltså inte, busted…

James Bond offered starring role in Versailles.

7 Apr

Its overblown grandeur has been the setting for many a period tale, from Stephen Frears’s Dangerous Liaisons to to Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette. Now the guardians of the nation’s most famous château want the Palace of Versailles to make its mark on a much wider audience – by virtue of a starring role in a future James Bond movie.

Parisian civil servants have gone so far as to write a storyline for 007, aimed at luring series producers Eon to the 17th-century palace. Scenarios might include Bond chasing through the palace after environmental terrorists, or perhaps making his escape through gardens designed according to the exacting tastes of Louis XIV.

”We want to give the producers some ideas, because it would be great to have James in the magnificent decor of the château,” Stéphane Martinet, the deputy director of the Paris region film commission, told the Times. ”Producers tend to think of it as a setting for period movies, but these are not the most profitable films these days. We would like to get across the message that Versailles could be a location for all sorts of different movies.”

A total of 165 movies have been filmed at Versailles, the home of French royalty from 1682 until the revolution of 1789. The palace has been increasingly opened up to film-makers since the French government asked it to manage its own budget a decade ago.

These recent changes have sparked anger among some traditionalists, with opponents claiming that the château is being turned into a theme park. But Mr Martinet said the initiative, which is part of a concerted attempt by French authorities to lure movie-makers from Hollywood, could only help boost tourism and create employment.

Crews who cannot afford Versailles’s €16,000-a-day (£14,000) rate can choose to shoot at an ordinary château for as little as €4,500. Last year the government also introduced a 20% tax break for film-makers shooting in France’s stately homes.

Bond’s 23rd adventure is set for release next year, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as the secret agent; the Oscar-winning British film-maker Sam Mendes is to direct.

Lady Gaga to write, sing new James Bond theme song

1 Apr

BOND films spawn some colourful characters – Baron Samedi, Nick Nack, Jaws, Oddjob, Blofeld and Scaramanga. The Sun.

But none can match the latest crackpot to be linked with the movie franchise – LADY GAGA.

The bonkers singer may be getting a licence to thrill Bond fans by writing and singing the film’s next theme tune. And who better?

She wears a hamster wheel as armour, carries a potentially lethal tea cup and is never without a roll of industrial strength gaffer tape.

Her name even fits seamlessly in the long list of outrageous Bond Girls – Kitty Stroker, Plenty O’Toole, Mary Goodnight, Xenia Onatopp, Honey Rider and Pussy Galore.

GaGa also happens to be perfectly qualified for the gig, given that she is one of the best pop stars on the planet.

She would be near the top, if not top, of my wish-list if I were a Bond bigwig.

A source said: ”Bond bosses are all huge GaGa fans. Her sound and sense of drama make her the top choice.

GaGa has the look as well as the voice to tackle a thundering ballad. She’s a great songwriter too. This is perfect on every level.”

The decision to ask GaGa to submit a song was made at a recent project meeting.

I was wary because it feels like every time a Bond film comes around, a flurry of names are linked with the gig.
