Lecture 6 - James Bond
- Customer Reviews (0)
Secret Service agent 007 was created in 1953 and featured in 12 novels, various short stories and many films (the longest continuously running film series of all time, with more to come). He’s a chronic womaniser, is often violent, drinks heavily and frequently disobeys instructions, but he has become a British cultural icon.
Misogynistic, sexist, hedonistic and amoral, Bond still remains adored in our very politically correct society of today. Why? Is his appeal based on his skill with a gun, his devil-may-care attitude, his background of exotic locations, or his ruthlessness? How much are we influenced by the handsome actors who have portrayed him? Does he appeal to men more than to women?
Why does the world love James Bond?
