  1. I’m not sure what it is about these posts, but I’ve happened to catch several of them just looking at the recent movie related blogs on WordPress and I always find them interesting.

  3. United Artists owned a stake in the James Bond movies; Harry Saltzman sold his share to UA in the mid-1970s, as Mr. Saltzman was having financial difficulties. Ironically, the recent Bond flicks have disposed of the UA logo, and just use the MGM lion logo. (The Daniel Craig “Bond” flicks also have the Columbia logo, as Columbia is a partner in making them.)
    Transamerica sold UA to MGM in 1981, as a consequence of the monumental failure of “Heaven’s Gate”.
