JAMES BOND - THE FIRST HALF



Super Spy
Of the MI 5
License to Kill
Audience to thrill

James Bond character
Ian Fleming the creator
A former Naval officer
Now a best selling author

Harry Saltzman and Cubby Broccoli
Danjaq the holding company
Wives names combined in harmony
Either or Nothing their policy to filmmaking
 
Cary Grant first choice
A million dollars the price
Turned it down with grace
Retirement plans deterred being in the race

Sean Connery picked
Casting totally clicked
Character perfectly fit
Global audience accepted

Style and Substance
Played the role with non challenge
Witty and gritty in his portrayal
Perfect choice for the material

A symbol of style
Clothes he wore
Tailored with care
Sartorial benchmark for audience to admire

Aston Martin DB 5
Revolving number plates
And ejector seat its facets
One of many groundbreaking gadgets

Way he said his name
Everyone tried the same
Synonymous with this delivery
Most Remembered line in movie history

Only branded he did wear
Rolex oyster perpetual on his wrist
Vodka Martini flavored drink
Shaken not Stirred the way he preferred

Unbelievable story made believable
Sex and violence only seemingly
Film picturized so that the children can see
Handled it perfectly filled all the seats

Gadgets from Q
Fans waiting to with bated breath
Very likable character
Desmond Llewellyn made it spectacular

Heroines selected with keenness
Looks and talent considered important
Bond girl tag most prestigious affair
Most sought after role
Heartthrobs of every soul

Exotic locations never before seen
Had the audience in a state of dream
Gadgets performing miraculous tasks
Had the eager fans more to ask
Wisecracks thrown in abundance
Crackling dialogues added to the experience
Great actors cast as villains
Balanced Bond with their ruthlessness
Breathtaking stunts in various forms
Car chases on mountain pathways
Ski chases on the mountains edges climaxed with
Falling of the cliff from altitudes we never knew existed
Free falls from an aircraft
Boat chases on the Venice canals
These are only a few listed
Viewers sucked into the cinematic reality
Always full of surprises at the films rarity

Spectre the acronym
Organization with a motive centered on global anhelation
Ernst Stavro Blofeld the man with sinister plans
Deputes the members to cause the mayhem

Bond vs Blofeld
Continue forever
Film after film
Bond stops his plans to ruin

Budgets had no limits
Every dollar earned
Given back to the screen
To make the next film
Audience never taken for granted
Every film took the experience to a whole new level
People never disappointed
Integrity of the team amply rewarded
Every film a box office success
Continuing for decades the franchise never ceases to impress


M the head of operations
Fredrick Gray the minister for defense
Bernard Lee and Geoffrey Keen
Veterans of the stage
Across the series made to play
Universal exports the cover organization
Money penny the flirty intelligent and harmless assistant
No effort to hide her pining
With Bond often playfully ignoring
Her verbal interplay with Bond
Wonderful chemistry these scenes add value beyond


Every film a roller coaster
Throws in everything including the kitchen sink for entertainment
Its box office appeal to bolster
Each film creating records
Beating the earlier


Ruthless and casual
Knowledge of varied subjects a bonus
Humorous and dangerous
Never loses focus
Every character a pawn
Moves it to get the job done
Saves the world time and again
Next crisis on only to begin


Attempts to kill him lost count
His presence of mind gets him out
Greatest character created in movie history
Etched in people's memory who forever sing their glory


60 th year for the franchise
Longest lasting goes without saying
Foundation laid by Sean Connery
6 films and a decade at the helm
The very sight if him made people melt


George Lazenby was tried for On her Majesty
First Non Connery Bond was Average
The producers knew they couldn't leverage
Opted for another actor
Who had just finished 8 seasons of The Saint
Global hit TV show that brought him international fame
Roger Moore was his name


Filling in the shoes of Sean Connery
Roger Moore carried forward the legacy
Brought in more humor bordering on parody
Suited the role to a T
7 films and 12 years later
Nobody does it better
