The Forgotten Vesper Lynd

Forgotten Vesper Lynd

This rather interesting picture showed up recently on Flickr. The poster’s note speaks for itself, but this indeed looks like Ian Fleming’ “Vesper Lynd.”

Speaking of double-naught spies…

The headline and introduction to yesterday’s post got us to thinking about the adventures of double-naught spy Jethro Bodine. (Jethro proclaimed himself double-naught 10 because “that gives me a naught on old 7.”).

We didn’t have to go far. Over on YouTube, somebody edited down The Beverly Hillbillies episode where Jethro first decides to pursue a career as a double-naught spy. Jethro has just seen Goldfinger and, well, take a look for yourself.
