Danny Biederman’s spy fi collection

Danny Biederman has an impressive collection of spy fiction props, covering James Bond, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Get Smart and much more. Biederman has uploaded a YouTube video of highlights of news reports when parts of his collection were displayed at the CIA and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

During clips of the movies and shows in question, there’s music from a Gerald Fried tune originally composed for U.N.C.L.E. and part of Jerry Goldsmith’s score for Our Man Flint.

Take a look:

Almost 30 years ago, Biederman and Robert Short attempted to put together a movie version of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (CLICK HERE and scroll to the second entry). They had gotten Bond veteran production designer Ken Adam interested in the project but it was not to be. There’s also a clip of Robert Conrad wishing he had kept James West’s sleeve gun that’s part of Biederman’s collection.

  2. HI, DANNY… ITS BEEN A LONG TIME. WITH THE U.N.C.L.E. FILM OPENING THIS WEEK, CURIOUS ABOUT YOUR THOUGHTS. FRIEND OF MINE IN SHERMAN OAKS ATTENDED A PREVIEW. FOUND IT DISAPPOINTING, BUT HE WAS A MODERATE FAN OF THE SERIES. I’M REVIEWING FILMS AND TV SERIES FOR WB-ARCHIVE COLLECTION (ON-LINE) UNDER THE NAME OF SHADOWER, AND HAVE COMPLETED A NOVEL, MOSAIC. CURIOUS WHAT YOU’VE BEEN UP TO, APART FROM SPY-FI… ANDY. P.S., DID VIEW THE TRAILER ON-LINE. NOT SURE WHAT TO MAKE OF IT. MY REVIEWS INCLUDED GIRL FROM U.N.C.L.E. SERIES AND THE 8-FILM COLLECTION, FROM WB-ARCHIVE.

  3. LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU.
