Is the world enough?  Spy movies have always looked for real-world inspirations to incorporate into their spy movies!   The Duke of Wellington makes an appearance in Dr. No,  James Bond, in the pre-title to Goldfinger, removes his wet suit to reveal a perfectly neat & crisp white dinner jacket & bow tie . . .  this came right out of a real World War II operation!  Who was the real spy?

Fake deaths, like in You Only Live Twice,  rooted in other real World War II operations. Piz Gloria and chemicals – we found a real event in 1968, and lots more!

We will take a look at how some real-world events found their way into some spy movies, in this podcast, from 1962 – 1969. So, let’s go exploring & discover some hidden connections!

This is Part 1 of a two part series.
