The Broccoli Family - James Bond Wiki

It was the beginning of the 1950's and Albert Romolo Broccoli had just bought his first house in London with money earned from shooting government subsidized war films in the UK. He came to London for two reasons: 1) "for the girls" and 2) for the movies. After achieving some success as a producer, he became interested in Ian Fleming's James Bond series, and along with Harry Saltzman, they began the production of Dr. No. The rest is history.

The Broccoli's have been the gatekeepers to the Bond franchise since Broccoli's first production in 1964. Albert "Cubby" Broccoli met his third wife, Dana Wilson, in 1959 after two failed marriages. Dana brought her teenaged son Michael with her into the marriage, and Cubby accepted him as his own. A year after the marriage, Dana and Cubby had a daughter, Barbara. As his children grew up on the sets of Bond films, they were perfectly groomed to work with their father to help make the Bond series a success and one of the most recognizable cultural icons of the 20th century and beyond. With Cubby's death in 1996 and Dana's in 2004, Barbara and Michael have ensured that the Bond franchise is in secure hands for future generations.

Without the Broccoli Family, Bond's existence would be limited to black and white ink and the imagination of Fleming's readers.

I have been a fan of Bond since I saw my first movie “Goldfinger”. I have collected all of the movies and have seen them at least 10 to 12 times.
The note is to state although I have always felt that Sean Connery was the best Bond. Once Danial Craig played Bond, I have change my opinion to Craig as the best bond ever. His ability to act in any situation without any personal feeling is very convincing as a Bond.
I am sorry to see him go and only hope that the new Bond is as good or better.
