CINEMA RETRO JAMES BOND EDITION

See what came in at #1 in Spy Vibe's 2012 Top Ten countdown with our review of Skyfall hereIf you are a fan of James Bond, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., and other cult classics, then you probably know about the excellent magazine, Cinema Retro. Each issue dives deep into film and television history of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Founding editor and author, Lee Pfeiffer, has contributed many special features to film releases (the Flint movies, Planet of the Apes, and more!), and has been an occasional guest here on Spy Vibe. Many years ago, Lee wrote one of the first major non-fiction books about the 007 movie franchise, and now he has brought his team together to produce a special edition focussing on the first 007 film, Dr. No, which just celebrated its 50th anniversary. These special issues sell out quickly and become prized collector's items. There are still copies available from the Cinema Retro website and from their eBay store. Don't miss your chance to pick it up. Here's what's inside. From Cinema Retro:
