Awakenings: Kick Back Moments: The President Kennedy, James Bond & St. Patrick’s Day Connection

on March 15, 2013

See on Scoop.itAwakenings: America & Beyond

Peggy Strack’s Kick Back Moments features The President Kennedy, James Bond & St. Patrick’s Day Connection. I dare say I would have never put these three together as having any kind of connection. Maybe JFK and St. Patrick’s Day because of the Irish connection. But James Bond? Um-m-m-m? Now that raises some eyebrows.

How much do you know about James Bond or his creator Ian Fleming? Do you think Mr. Fleming’s books were an instant success? Did he reach #1 best seller with his first book? Were his works ever criticized?

Sharla Shults‘s insight:

My favorite James Bond will always be Sean Connery. How about you?

    Sean Connery is my favorite simply because I really like Sean Connery, but Daniel Craig who’s doing it now is much closer to the Bond that Ian Fleming wrote.

    I LOVED the Bond books. I read them all when I was in college. I think they were all best sellers and they were certainly enormously popular with my fellow freshman (that was 1963-64. Everything gets criticized by somebody. I have never understood why none of the movies bothered to follow any of the books. The books would have made great screenplays. I still love the books! Ian Fleming really WAS James Bond, or so I hear.

  5. Sharla I have a guilty secret, I can’t bear James Bond…
    He was modelled on the father of a friend of a friend who had had an amazing life before and during the war… and always hated being pointed to as being the James Bond prototype!
    After the war he married a beautiful Norwegian girl who’d waited for him all through the war, and was raped by the Nazis.
    He was in Ian Fleming’s department during the war….Fleming was the one who loved the cars and cigars and girls!!!
