Posted on | October 11, 2012 | 4 Comments

We know that Global Bond Day is over with, but the year isn’t over yet and Skyfall still hasn’t hit screens. So to kick-start a series of posts ranging from reviews to news, all celebrating 50 years of Bond, here is a crossword puzzle created by Flick and Flack that features information collected from many sources that range from our heads to 007.com and more.  Make sure you watch the minute and a half Bond 50 video in 007.com, that plays automatically at the very top of the page, showcasing all of the films.

We hope you enjoy this crossword puzzle that features questions that range from your knowledge of Dr. No, the first Bond film, to Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig’s November 9th release, Skyfall. For the first time ever we are in crossword puzzle form, no less, to test you on one of cinema’s most popular, successful, and intriguing film franchises.Before you begin the crossword puzzle, here is just a quick word on how to do it. It’s pretty simple:

  • Click on one of the squares with a number (1, 2, 3, etc.) and at the top of the page you’ll see a clue. It should say, for example, “Across 1: Longtime Bond Producer pair”
  • Then, in the blank space next to the Enter button, write your answer.
  • Next, press Enter and it should show up on the grid.

Other notes:

  • All of the clues are listed together on the bottom of the page, so you can view them at the same time. However you cannot write directly in the grid, you must write in the blank spot at the top of the page.
  • If you think you got it wrong, or just want to see how you’re doing, press the Check button. All of the incorrect letters will disappear, leaving only the correct letters.
  • Also, for questions with people’s names as answers, last names and full names are used but never just first names.
  • If you don’t feel like going through the hassle of all this or if you want to do it on the go, you can print the page as you would print anything on your computer.

That’s just about it, so good luck!

Note: This puzzle ranges from laughably easy questions to frighteningly challenging ones. In other words we’re sorry if your left, well, shaken… not stirred.

    Well guys, you stumped me on the surgery thing. I never got it on my own-only by trying all the letters in the alphabet, haha. I also got the stuntman by process of elimination after figuring out the last name.

    Just think- I’ve seen all the Bond films when they came out! Yes I was allowed at age 6 to go to Dr. No. Parents weren’t big on shielding you from things back then; they were more happy to get my brother and I out of their hair. We walked a mile to our local theater, the Stadium in Woonsocket. That’s where I saw movies until I was about sixteen and friends could drive to other towns. My brother and I would even walk downtown to the theater by the railroad tracks! Things were a lot safer for kids back then. A double feature on the big screen was fifty cents. For six cents you could get candy, my favorite being Boston Baked Beans, these are red candy coated peanuts. So give me 56 cents and I was at the movies for the afternoon! Can you imagine?

    I am clearly going to have to study Bond films before doing this crossword puzzle. Is it a flickflack original? If so, kudos to you!

    On another note, I just saw a film I would like to recommend to you. It’s called “Robot and Frank” with Frank Langella, Susan Sarandon, Liv Tyler, and James Marsden. Basically, it’s a buddy caper movie, but as you can tell from the title, the buddies are a robot and a human. It’s set in the near future. Frank is a retired cat burglar whose memory is failing and whose son gets him a robot to help care for him, so he can stop making a long trip to visit him every weekend. The plot and characters are multi-dimensional (including the robot). Watch it and we’ll discuss.

    I always enjoyed Bond movies and I went to the early movies and I was amazed how they were made fifty years go with the limited technology at that time. They really capture our imagination of how the mind can fantasize about the future.

    If only I was alive fifty years ago! But it is fun to watch the early Connery ones: there are some action scenes that are leagues ahead of many action movies of today. At the end of the day, they are just fun movies, here for just fun action. Goldfinger is considered by many to be the best, but even that one never reaches an emotional note. So I’m still waiting for some depth, but they are very, very fun. Look for more 007 posts coming soon! From, Flick
