HONOR BLACKMAN TOUR

Avenger and Bond Girl, Honor Blackman, is currently on a short tour of speaking engagements. Taking the stage in Honor Blackman As Herself, she discusses stories from her career, including the Swinging London years portraying Pussy Galore in Goldfinger, as well as playing the original leather Avenger Cathy Gale in The Avengers. From her website: "Whilst Honor's career stretches over sixty glorious years, she has rarely appeared simply as herself. Here, in conversation with her colleague and friend Richard Digby Day she will look back over this astonishing life, her beginnings, her family, her rise to stardom with her usual sense of humour and perspective. She will also be singing a few of her favourite songs." Hopefully she will include the Avengers tune Kinky Boots! Upcoming UK dates are May 8th, 12th, and 25th. Story continues below.


Speaking to the Coventry Telegraph, the actress spoke about how The Avengers launched her as "a pin-up as the smart, sexy, gun-wielding, judo throwing anthropologist Cathy Gale. 'I really did go to judo classes,' she says. At the age of 37 she was cast as Pussy Galore in Goldfinger." And if you ever wondered if she really was a natural action star: “When I was in the Civil Service I became a dispatch rider. Because all the men were at war they asked girls to volunteer to learn how to ride a motorbike and go from hospital to hospital in an emergency carrying blood. Sadly I never got to because no-one ran out. But we used to ride across London- it frightened my mother to death. I was known as Top Gear Tessie. I remember riding on the A4 from London to Oxford with my feet on the petrol tank singing at the top of my voice.” Spy Vibe wishes Honor Blackman all the best for her upcoming shows and hope she will make it to some dates in the States.

NEW ROGER MOORE BOOK

A new book by Sir Roger Moore will be published in September. Last Man Standing is a collection of the 007 actor's greatest tales from his many years in entertainment. From the press release: "In a career that spans over seven decades, Roger Moore has been at the very heart of the show business scene. Of course, he's an actor and has starred in films that have made him famous the world over; but he's also a tremendous prankster, joker and raconteur - in fact, he's well known as one of the nicest guys in the business, and someone who has always been up for some fun. In this fabulous collection of true stories from his stellar career, Roger lifts the lid on the movie business, from Hollywood to Pinewood. It features outrageous tales from his own life and career as well as those told to him by a host of stars and filmmakers, including Tony Curtis, Sean Connery, Michael Caine, David Niven, Frank Sinatra, Gregory Peck, John Mills, Peter Sellers, Michael Winner, Cubby Broccoli and many more. Wonderfully entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny, this selection of tales from the world of the movies is vintage Moore at his very best." 272 pages. AmazonUK link here

BUNNY INTERVIEW

Spy Vibe presents an Easter interview with a very special Bunny. Soon after donning her cotton tail at the London Playboy Club in 1969, Bunny Deana was crowned Bunny of the Year by 007 actor George Lazenby (On Her Majesty's Secret Service). We sat down for a virtual chat a couple of years ago to talk about Swinging London, her training as a Bunny, and life at the Playboy Club.


Excerpt: "We were not allowed to sit with guests or pour drinks for them, and most definitely not accept drinks from them. On my website you will see a number of photographs of me sitting with guests. However, these were always taken by our official Photographer Bunny, (a really beautiful girl named Rema) whose job it was to encourage guests to pay for a souvenir Polaroid. I’m so pleased that many of the guests handed me the photographs to keep. They are a unique and irreplaceable record of a little piece of history. Actually, some of the photos have names and phone numbers written on the back, but remember the rule about over-familiarity!" Read our full interview here. If you have been away on missions this week, Spy Vibers may want to catch up with recent news: Cumberbatch as Ian Fleming, new Fleming Jamaica book, Japanese editions of Bond and UNCLEJapanese, German, and Kindle editions of The 10th Victim.

CUMBERBATCH AS IAN FLEMING

It is rumored that Sherlock star, Benedict Cumberbatch, has been offered the role of Ian Fleming in a new biopic. The project, which is based on Andrew Lycett's biography of the James Bond author, is said to focus on Fleming's experiences with Naval Intelligence during World War II. Duncan Jones (Moon) was originally set to direct, but unfortunately dropped out to make Warcraft. I'm curious to see how this unfolds. Cumberbatch would certainly bring his own gravitas and touch of rogue energy to the role. I was rather disappointed in the recent Fleming mini-series, which seemed mannered and self-conscious. I expect, with Cumberbatch on board, we could finally see a Fleming film with substance. Spy Vibe will post updates on the new movie as development continues. Image from BBC.

IAN FLEMING JAMAICA

A new book that celebrates Ian Fleming's life in Jamaica will be published on the 50th anniversary of the author's death in August. There has been a pre-order page on Amazon UK for many weeks, but Ian Fleming Publications has just posted an official announcement. The creator of James Bond famously negotiated for an annual three-month vacation in his contract so he could spend as much time as possible at his Goldeneye home, where he enjoyed a routine of snorkeling and writing 007 adventures. Fleming passed away on August 12th, 1964. Spy Vibers with deep pockets can rent Goldeneye, which is now a luxury retreat.


From the press release: "During the war, Ian Fleming fell in love with Jamaica. For two months of every year, from 1946 to his death eighteen years later, Fleming lived at Goldeneye, the house he built on the island’s north coast. It was here that he wrote all of his Bond stories. Now, writer and historian Matthew Parker has written GOLDENEYE, a detailed look at Fleming’s life in Jamaica and the creation of James Bond. Granted exclusive access to the Goldeneye archive, and featuring new interviews with local residents who knew Fleming, this book promises a fascinating look at Ian Fleming’s Jamaica."

THE 10TH VICTIM: JAPANESE & KINDLE

We conclude our week of rare books with two editions of Robert Sheckley's The 10th Victim. The 1965 Elio Petri movie adaptation starring Ursula Andress and Marcello Mastroianni looms large here on Spy Vibe. Ever since I was a kid, I've been completely fascinated by the film's cocktail of groovy music, op art, pop art, space-age fashion, and modern design. I was fortunate to be able to contribute the entire poster/still gallery to the Blu-ray edition from Blue Underground (on sale now for $12.49!). As we discussed in our tour of Japanese editions of James Bond and The Man From U.N.C.L.E., the leading publisher for mystery and Sci-Fi in the 1960s was Hayakawa. Hayakawa released The 10th Victim in 1967 with the company's trademark abstract painting motif on the cover. It appears that Kanamori Tooru supplied a design as well, but I have not been able to verify this. Kanamai's style tended toward classic Sci-Fi illustration, making images for properties like Star Trek, so I believe the abstract work below is by another artist. Sheckley's novel was translated by Tokiwa Shimpei (born in Iwate prefecture, for my fellow northerners). Another edition came out by Hayakawa in 1969, wrapped in an obi with photo stills from the movie. Story continues below.


Robert Sheckley's The 10th Victim is finally accessible as an e-book! Amazon just released it on April 1st, along with the author's Victim series. The original source material for the film was a 1953 short story, The Seventh Victim, included in the author's book Galaxy. Sheckley's film novelization came out in 1966. The 10th Victim movie was a perfect project for Robert Sheckley and Elio Petri. Both artists were interested in satire and social commentary, often shedding light on moral decay and society's chilling fascination with violence. The 10th Victim establishes a future where violent tendencies are channeled into games of death, and violence itself is marketed as entertainment. Modern audiences will recognize the trend in our own current popularity of reality shows, Battle Royale, The Hunger Games, and the flood of serial-killer anti-heroes. Sheckley's use of satire and fast-paced writing made his own commentary and narrative quite accessible and entertaining. The 10th Victim novel differs slightly from the movie. In this famous passage below, we do see the heroine dispatch her killer with a gun-bra bikini (one of the images that inspired Austin Powers). But Sheckley's action takes place in a trendy art gallery of wax dummies, rather than Petri's choice to place the killing in a sadomasochist club. 


Excerpt: "One of the wax dummies on the far end of the line came suddenly and disconcertingly to life. The dummy whirled; it was Caroline, half clad, the upper half of her comely body concealed only by a strangely shaped metal brassiere reminiscent of the one worn by Wilma, the legendary wife of Buck Rogers. Caroline's was a more practical garment than that archetypical brassiere of yore; for as she faced the startled Hunter, each breast piece fired a single shot." The Victim novels are currently $3.99 on Kindle Amazon. German edition on Spy Vibe hereRelated 10th Victim posts: Future ListeningSet Countdown #5SoundtrackfashionFear and FashionMods to Moongirls.

U.N.C.L.E. JAPANESE EDITIONS

Open channel D! Continuing our look at unusual book designs this week, we turn the spotlight on Japanese editions of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. My first introduction to book collecting in Japan was when I first moved there as a college student. Continuing the Saturday routine of treasure-hunting, I stumbled across a pile of spy paperbacks at a used bookshop. Inside the stack of classic Bonds were a few U.N.C.L.E. titles- and a new fascination with Japanese editions was born!

As you may have read yesterday, the main publisher for 1960s mystery and Sci-Fi in Japan was Hayakawa (see James Bond: Japanese Editions). The company was founded by Kiyoshi Hayakawa in 1945. As I posted, Hayakawa printed paperback editions of genre books, using a variety of designs over the years that included illustrations and production stills. Their main design concept for all of their books and series, however, was to place mystery and Sci-Fi in the world of modern expressionism through the use of abstract paintings. One of the coolest features of the early releases was the addition of slipcases! Hayakawa's attention to spy-boom era titles included many Man From U.N.C.L.E. books, as well as a handful of Girl From U.N.C.L.E. titles. Most of the editions in Spy Vibe's collection used photo-cover designs with Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, but an internet search has revealed many abstract-painting covers as well. And just like the U.N.C.L.E. books made for the UK and US markets, each volume in the set was numbered. The Hayakawa U.N.C.L.E. series (called Napoleon Solo) included at least sixteen novels. There was also a manga by Takao Saito (Golgo 13), which makes me curious to learn more about U.N.C.L.E.'s broadcast history in Japan! Stay tuned tomorrow for an exciting return to The 10th Victim.

JAMES BOND: JAPANESE EDITIONS

Continuing our look at unusual book designs this week, we turn the spotlight on Japanese editions of James Bond novels. As I mentioned in an interview for Artistic License Renewed, I started reading and collecting Ian Fleming when I was twelve. By twenty I was living in Japan as a college student and doing my first teaching internship. I'll never forget the thrill of discovering 007 books there. I was on a vacation with my host family and my brother and I stopped in an old bookshop. There were literally mountains of used books on every surface piled up to the ceiling. It was like a canyon of paper and ideas. My old Saturday routine suddenly kicked in. "Do you have any James Bond?" The owner searched around for a long time and finally came back with a stack of spy books from the 1960s. I'd found my collector's Nirvana!


The main publishing house for mystery (and Sci-Fi) in Japan is Hayakawa, a Tokyo company started by Kiyoshi Hayakawa in 1945. They printed paperback editions of the Ian Fleming books, using a variety of designs over the years that included illustrations and movie stills. Their main design concept for all of their books and series, however, was to place mystery and Sci-Fi in the world of modern expressionism through the use of abstract paintings. One of the coolest features of the early releases was the addition of slipcases- for paperbacks! I love that sense of detail and style (see first image). There were also early Fleming books printed with a blood-splatter motif, as seen in the Moonraker jacket below. These were published by Sogen-sha, who also specialized in mystery and Sci-Fi. Here are some samples of James Bond books from Japan.






Hayakawa also printed a number of Raymond Benson's 007 titles, including Man With the Red Tattoo, High Time to Kill, The Facts of Death, and Zero Minus Ten. As you can see, the company continued with their traditional abstract motif for the covers. The story in Raymond Benson's Red Tattoo takes place in Japan and  a museum was built on Naoshima dedicated to the book. I wonder how my Miki Zero novel will be received there? The character is quite stylish, so I'm hoping for a line of Mod clothing! Stay tuned tomorrow for more Hayakawa book treasures from Spy Vibe!
