Another New James Bond? In L&D?!?

According to Wikipedia, American actor, Barry Nelson was the first to portray James Bond on screen, in a 1954 television adaptation, “Casino Royale.”

In 1961, Eon Productions began work on Dr. No, an adaptation of the 1958 novel of the same name, and the producers cast Sean Connery as Bond in the film.

In the early 1960s, I was James Bond – at least in the 1966 J.C. Penny’s Christmas catalog.

I was in 8th grade living in the far southern suburbs of Chicago.

Out with the Old and In with the New

Now it looks as if Donald H. Taylor has replaced me.

At least according to John Helmer – and others – in John’s latest audio podcast – The Learning Hack:

LH #56 What’s Hot? What’s Not? with Donald H. Taylor

Another Brit replacing an American. Oh my. There goes the empire.

  1. I haven’t actually replaced you yet, Guy. I’m still waiting by the phone for Barbara Broccoli to call. However, whatever happens, I will never match that photograph and catalogue entry!
