The Cuban Cinematheque will screen for the first time in this country the filmography of one of the icons of British cinema, James Bond, Agent 007, the institution confirmed today.

The 23 y 12 movie theater in this capital will host from August 2 to 31 the cycle on the popular character who came out from the pages of writer, Ian Fleming, and whose existence on the big screen exceeds 50 years.

The film's audience could enjoy the films played by all the actors who have characterized Agent 007: Barry Nelson, Sean Connery, David Niven, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig.

Apparently, James Bond was not entirely a figment of Fleming's imagination, as he was inspired by the exploits of several people he met during the World War II when he worked in the intelligence of the Royal Navy, despite never participating himself in combative actions.

As the British journalist confessed, in an attempt to avoid the tensions and entanglements caused by a random chain of infidelities and fling, he began writing ‘Casino Royale' in 1952, the first of the 007 novels.

According to Cuban film critic, Antonio Mazon, if an astute producer had not realized that an endless saga of espionage could be worked out as of Fleming's novels, the James Bond character of the so-called airport literature, would not have transcended at all.

Several of the feature films scheduled in this cycle are premiered in Cuba and among the well-known ones are ‘The Spy Who Loved Me' (1977) that for many experts is the best of the series and includes the song ‘Nobody does it better', sung by Carly Simon, a hit parade winner of her time.
