True Bond

Who inspired Ian Fleming’s James Bond character? We portray Dusko Popov, a Serbian double-agent of both British MI5 and the German Abwehr.

Fleming was a wartime spy handler for MI5 and knew Popov and followed him in Portugal, witnessing an event in the Estoril Casino where Popov placed a bet of $40,000 ($596,644 in 2012 dollars!)

Fleming used this episode as the basis for Casino Royale. Our film combines clips from many Bond movies with reenactment of Popov’s life as a playboy and double-agent in Europe, UK & America. A Bond-like original score.
