"I admire your luck, Mister....?" "Bond. James Bond"

Interesting variation on the 3 British DR, NO paperbacks. I never understood why YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE didn't have a movie tie-in cover, just that awful sticker.

If you are interested in seeing other foreign movie editions for the Bonds, check the past movie poster auctions at www.heritage.com. Long time Bond collector Gary Firuta  has divested himself of his Bond collection which had about 700 books, both hardcover and paperback. Many of the foreign editions feature Connery or movie stills on their covers.

What I find amusing are the prices for these books. 35 cents, 50 cents, $1.25, $2.25, etc. Has anyone gone to your local bookstore and checked the price of new paperbacks? $14.95 and up is outrageous!

I think it may have been tied or surpassed since, but for years THE SWARM was the record-holder for most Oscar-winning actors in the cast. This doesn't include films with stars making cute cameo appearances or passing through as themselves. In THE SWARM, all 7 Oscar winners played actual roles.

Michael Caine
Olivia de Havilland
Ben Johnson
Lee Grant
Jose Ferrer
Patty Duke
Henry Fonda

In addition to that record, THE SWARM is also notable as one of the by-God absolute worst, most awful, most pitiful, most hopeless major motion pictures ever made.

I had a friend and mentor, a screenwriter who worked on THE SWARM uncredited.  

He told me that whenever he got a call from Irwin Allen, he would pick up the phone, say "Hello?" and Allen on the other end, would go, "BZZZZZZZZZ..."
