The Jewish connection is revealed as the exhibit 'Bond. James-
makes its North American debut.

elebrating 40 years of

James Bond in film, a

major exhibit of Bond

memorabilia opens

Saturday, June 28, at Henry Ford

Museum in Dearborn.

The exhibition, titled "Bond. James

Bond," explores the science and the

art of the Bond films through a huge

collection of original 007 objects,

images, concept drawings, story-





boards and costume designs.

Visitors will be drawn into the world of James Bond
via glitzy, multimedia sections that include informa-
tion on the "real" Cold War; material about the
actors and others associated with the Bond films;
and displays of the gadgets and props used in the
In somewhat Disneyland style, the end of the
exhibit, sold out during its six-month London run,
allows visitors to experience a Bond "film finale" as
a villain's lair is blown up.
This is definitely a hands-on exhibit. Visitors
become "000 agents" upon entering and are grant-
ed a "Q-Branch" smart card that can be used to
access info in the "MI6" database as well as activate
different features within the exhibition.
No doubt, the exhibit's M16 database will not
cover the Jewish connections to the Bond films. But
if you secure this article to your person before visiting
the exhibit and consult it frequently —or commit it
to your memory —you can enhance your Bond experi-
ence by your knowledge of the "not-so-secret" Bond
Jewish connection.
Once you absorb and process the following information,
you will be rated "Oy-Oy-7."
