Graham Rye talks about his relationship with 007 films

Graham Rye, the publisher of 007 Magazine, has come out with an article (a decade old) about his long relationship with the Bond film series.

To be honest, Rye can be prickly. I’ve had my own encounters with him.

But Rye has been there since the beginning of the Bond movies. So he is a voice that can’t be ignored.

Rye has an extensive photographic inventory of Bond-related images.

According to the article for 007 Magazine by Luke G. Williams, Rye “once likened his relationship with Eon as a marriage in which ‘irreconcilable differences’ had caused a breakdown in the relationship leading to divorce.”

Regardless, Rye and his 007 Magazine have many followers. As we approach the 60th anniversary of the 007 film series, Rye has been a prominent figure. He remains so to this day.
