0012: Cai-Cai-Cairo

How much of a Bond film is recycled from unused scripts?

In the first segment, we wrap up some loose ends and dive in to the latest Bond 25 media coverage including Daniel Craig's injury and how Twitter would cover the production of early films. We welcome Ajay Chowdhury to the crew and discuss the reality of screenwriting for big franchises and how unused elements of scripts have popped up years later. Along the way, we trip over divorce Bond films, Connery's time-traveling bookshelf, running out of puff, talking porpoises, and falling snowflakes on ya body.

The recording took place on May 17th, 2019 in the USA, UK, and Spain.
