The Man with the Golden Touchtells the unlikely story of how Eon Productions‹the owners of the Bond franchise‹has kept James Bond at the top of the charts for forty-five years when originally only three or four films were planned. Through twenty-one films featuring three M¹s, two Q¹s, and six Bonds‹from Sean Connery¹s career-transforming turn in 1962¹s Dr. Noto Daniel Craig¹s debut in the 2006 blockbuster Casino Royale‹the action superstar and perfect English gentleman reigns supreme. Thanks to the films, Ian Fleming¹s original creation has been transformed from a black sheep of the postwar British elite into a figure with universal appeal, constantly evolving in step with changing social and political circumstances. Sinclair McKay interviewed those concerned with every aspect of the film, and is ideally placed to describe how the Bond brand has been managed over the years and to tell the inside stories of the vivid supporting cast, from Bond girls and Bond villains to Bond cars and Bond gadgetry.
