Beyond the Canon. Beyond Eon? As in, Beyond The Eon Productions Canon. Look, this strand of the podcast can have multiple names, lots of things do. Consider 1967's "O.K. Connery", aka "Operation Kid Brother" aka "Double Agent 007". There are many exploitation parodies of James Bond before you even leave the cinema of Italy. Where better to start than with the parody starring Sean Connery's real-life brother Neil Connery? Watch the quickest rise from Edinburgh plasterer to 1960s Doctor Strange in cinema history. It's not just the facial hair staying where it is on his face. He has the superpower of hypnosis through intense staring. He is also helped by multiple actors from the original Bond franchise including Lois Maxwell, Bernard Lee, From Russia With Love's Bondgirl Daniela Bianchi and Thunderball's villain Adolfo Celi. This is a real movie that exists and Richard and Jonathan discuss it. There's also Richard's look at the re-publication of Roger Moore's on-set diary of Live And Let Die and Jonathan's confirmation that Danny Boyle is directing Bond 25. It's good to be talking Bond again.
