Would you like if EON created a "period" Bond set in the 1950's?

Such an immediate post-War setting of war veterans and European reconstruction brings very different politics, music, culture, fashion, technology, daily headlines and social concerns to those of the Sixties.


Fine, as long as they don't overdo the period vibe by stuffing in barely-relevant cultural references for their own sake, like Sebastian Faulks did.



Agreed. That's why I referenced Mad Men as an example of the kind of period-setting to aspire to - faithful to the period but not heavy-handed or nostalgic.
