James Bond has now been a cinematic mainstay for 50 years. Literary and film critics alike have fought the corner of Ian Fleming and Cubby Broccoli, stressing the influence their combined imaginations have had on the development of novel ideas and technology over time.
I dare say there have been more than a few boffins over the years inspired to turn Bond fiction into reality. However, the Bond movies are not the only collaboration of Fleming and Broccoli that has inspired generations. Who can forget Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Whichever great mind developed the Child Catcher, I take my hat off to you. A true work of genius.
