I just completed Trigger Mortis and intuitively began brainstorming ideas as to how the book would have worked as a mid-60s "lost" Bond film (perhaps set between TB and YOLT?).
For one, I'm not sure the villain's scheme would have been compelling enough for a Bond film, and having back to back Bond film plots involving the space race might have felt a bit redundant.
We also probably would not have had Honor Blackman return as Pussy Galore. Perhaps this would have been a good opportunity to bring Sylvia Trench back to the series and give her character some closure.
I'm also not sure if the locations--Germany and NYC--are exotic enough for a Bond film. Having said that, the locations in GF aren't exactly the most exotic, especially Kentucky.
Anyone else pondered a TM film?
