Oooo... so tempting... but that would be unfair. I'm resisting the urge to enter the contest....

Hi David - here via an e-mail from Yvonne.

QUESTION 1:
OK, according to the great font of all things film-related (IMDB the Sean Connery films in date order are:

1. # Never Say Never Again (1983)
2. # Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
3. # You Only Live Twice (1967)
4. # Thunderball (1965)
5. # Goldfinger (1964)
6. # From Russia with Love (1963)
7. # Dr. No (1962)

Which gives us 7 films.


QUESTION 2

Three other actors include
Eva Green as Vesper Lynd, Mads Mikkelsen as Le Chiffre, and of course, Judi Dench as M


QUESTION 3

Not sure what you mean with 'the first country in which it's set'. If you mean the country in the opening scene of the movie, it's The Czech Republic. If you mean the country where the Casino itself is set, that's Montenegro in the film but was first Royale-les-Eaux in France in Fleming's novel.


QUESTION 4

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Columbia Pictures distributed it, and Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson co-produced it

A special thank you to all of the readers, who left a comment. Due to the time difference between the two countries, I've just seen the comments.

Hi Nora, thank you very much for the nice comments.

Hi Starfire, thanks for having a go at the quiz. That was quite a good attempt, as questions 2 and 4 are correct. But questions 1 and 3 didn't do the trick. No harm in trying again, as we would really like to send you a book. And better luck next time around.

Hello Jane, thanks for the comment, and thanks for showing an interest in the quiz.
