James Bond Theme Party
Specials James Bond store
Spirits, women and cigarettes took the life of James Bond
English monthly magazine Men's Health sounded in early 1997 doctors and
psychologists studying James Bond, his life and times .
The result was alarming : James Bond is dead or dying , paranoid, impotent and an alcoholic. Psychologist Mike Berry has done a psychological profile with a background in that Bond was orphaned at age 11 ( parents died in a mountaineering accident) , lost her virginity in a brothel in Paris at 16 and killed his first mistress , Madame Martha Debrandt , the following year. Berry is harsh in his assessment : " Bond is an emotionally stunted psychopath of type A that suffers from post -traumatic stress. " " The disruption was a fact already in childhood ," adds Professor Bruce Pitt in.
Bond's daily alcohol consumption - a vodka martini, a cocktail, whiskey , white wine and bourbon - has meant that he was no longer able to do his job in the Secret Service . The liquor should also have led to " cool lynnesutbrott and a shrinking of the genitals ."
Alcohol has also damaged his liver so that it is unable to break down estrogen, the female hormone . Bond starting to get breasts and have become impotent.
His sexual excesses also makes him " a sample of sexually transmitted diseases ." Then we still have not mentioned Bonds comprehensive smoking!
It was, therefore, neither Dr . No , Goldfinger or Blofeld who was killing James Bond, but his own habits ! So it can go .
Det engelska månadsmagasinet Men's Health lät i början av 1997 läkare
och psykologer studera James Bond, hans liv och leverne.
Resultatet blev alarmerande: James Bond är död eller döende, paranoid, impotent
Psykologen Mike Berry har gjort en psykologisk profil med bakgrund i
att Bond blev föräldralös vid 11 års ålder (föräldrarna omkom i en
bergsklättringsolycka), förlorade oskulden på en bordell i Paris vid 16 och dödade
sin första älskarinna, madame Martha Debrandt, året därpå. Berry är hård
i sin bedömning: "Bond är en känslomässigt hämmad psykopat av typen A
som lider av posttraumatisk stress." "Störningarna var ett faktum
redan i barndomen", fyller professor Bruce Pitt i.
Novel Statistics“I take a ridiculous pleasure in what I eat and drink.”
This section takes an in-depth look at the literary James Bond’s drinks of choice. Here is the total number of drinks consumed by Commander Bond in Ian Fleming's novels and short stories:
Bond’s drinks per-page ratio is one drink every seven pages (using the book lengths from the Signet paperbacks).
Bond is clearly a whiskey man, and throughout the novels he drinks 101 of them. Bourbon is his favorite liquor, and that doesn't even count 007's frequent enjoyment of doubles. Bourbon handily defeats scotch whisky, 58 to 38.
Sake comes in second, but this is entirely due to the vast amounts Bond drinks in just one novel, You Only Live Twice. Like his film counterpart, the literary 007 loves champagne. (On six occasions he has pink champagne.) Given that many of his 30 drinks of champagne were full bottles or portions of bottles (equaling at least another 30 glasses), champagne is clearly the literary Bond's second choice after whiskey. (For more on the way we tally drinks, see How We Count.) Among his preferred brands:
The vodka martini places at a somewhat lowly fifth place. Throw in gin martinis (as well as a few undetermined ones), and the martini total rises to a very respectable 41, even topping bourbon as a drink of choice. Bond has a total of 30 drinks containing vodka. The first novel in which Fleming uses the phrase "shaken and not stirred" is Diamonds Are Forever (although Bond does not actually say it until Doctor No).
There is something of a popular myth that the only reason James Bond is known as a vodka martini drinker is because of the placement of Smirnoff vodka in the film version of Dr. No. This is not true. Unlike his film counterpart, the literary Bond does drink gin martinis. However, 10 of the 16 gin martinis he drinks are prepared or ordered for him by other people (eight of them by Felix Leiter, who is definitely a gin martini man). The six that Bond orders for himself are consumed (three at a time) on just two separate occasions. Time and again, Fleming's 007 displays a clear preference for vodka martinis. By the way (to shoot down another myth), Bond drinks only one martini containing both vodka and gin, the Vesper in Casino Royale.
When he’s not enjoying alcohol, 007’s favorite drink is coffee. He drinks tea (which he normally abhors) in You Only Live Twice.
Bond’s women also share his taste for a good drink. Vesper Lynd and Tiffany Case are easily able to keep up with 007 (and it’s intimated that Vesper drinks a great deal more):
Felix Leiter is 007’s best drinking buddy. He prefers Haig and Haig scotch, bourbon, and gin (never vodka) martinis:
Bond has a number of friends and allies that share his tastes:
By the way, M has eight drinks: five in Moonraker, two in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, and one in The Man with the Golden Gun.
Finally, Bond’s opponents tend not to drink very much, if at all (Goldfinger, Blofeld and Scaramanga are all confirmed teetotalers). Several times during the later novels, Fleming opines that professional criminals don’t drink or smoke. The villain who drinks the most, Hugo Drax, appears to be a borderline alcoholic.
In Diamonds Are Forever, Wint and Kidd also have one drink each. While not a textbook villain, Milton Krest from “The Hildebrand Rarity” is a very heavy drinker.
“The target of my books lay somewhere between
the solar plexus and the upper thigh.”
Welcome to the big board. The final totals: i Bondfilms
For detailed information, see the separate statistical breakdowns for Novels and Films. We also examine totals and statistics for the five individual actors who have portrayed 007. Here is the cumulative total for the films and novels:
Champagne Bollinger, Stockholm 17 oktober 2006
Vodka martini, "shaken not stirred" - often said as part of a bad Sean Connery impersonation - is one of the most quotable lines from Bond.
Yet Her Majesty's top secret agent's love of the bottle would leave him impotent and at death's door.
Doctors analysing the Ian Fleming novels show James Bond polishes off the equivalent of one and a half bottles of wine every day.
They say he is not the man to trust to deactivate a nuclear bomb.
Doctors in Derby and Nottingham sat down to read the 14 Bond novels in their spare time.
With a notebook at hand they charted every day and every drink.
Excluding the 36 days Bond was in prison, hospital or rehab, the spy downed 1,150 units of alcohol in 88 days.
It works out at 92 units a week - about five vodka martinis a day and four times the recommended maximum intake for men in the UK.
The doctors' report in the festive edition of the British Medical Journal concluded: "Although we appreciate the societal pressures to consume alcohol when working with international terrorists and high stakes gamblers, we would advise Bond to be referred for further assessment of his alcohol intake."
Patrick Davies, a consultant in paediatric intensive care at Nottingham University Hospitals, told the BBC: "You wouldn't want this person defusing a nuclear bomb.
"He's a very glamorous person, he gets all the girls and that's totally incompatible with the lifestyle of an alcoholic, which he is."
He said Bond would be classified in the "top whack" of problem drinkers and would be at high risk of liver damage, an early death and impotence.
"So he might be practising safe sex after all," said Dr Davies.From Russia with vodka
He also had a "Drink and Let Drive" habit after consuming 39 units in Casino Royale then crashing in a high-speed car chase and needing two weeks in hospital.
On his biggest bender, Bond had 50 units in a single day during From Russia With Love and only 13 days in all the novels were free of the sauce.
Charting James Bond's drinking habits with age, he starts off drinking heavily in Casino Royale (1953) before seemingly starting to get his life in order as he heads towards Goldfinger (1959).
However, his intake starts to soar again and peaks at 132 units a week in You Only Live Twice (1964).
The researchers argue this may be a response to the death of his wife a year earlier in On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
They say the study is light-hearted, and did not interfere with their day jobs, but raises an important message about alcohol.
Excessive alcohol consumption is thought to cause 2.5 million deaths every year around the world.
"The level of functioning as displayed in the books is inconsistent with the physical, mental, and indeed sexual functioning expected from someone drinking this much alcohol," the doctors said.
