Skyfall Trailer & Photos Plus James Bond’s London

Daniel Craig as James Bond in Skyfall


Ian Fleming wrote that James Bond’s family motto was “The world is not enough.” The world might have not been, but London was another matter. For both Ian Fleming and his famous creation, James Bond, London represented the mother lode of style and substance. Mother is the operative word here.

Like Judi Dench’s redoubtable “M,” Ian Fleming’s mother Evelyn (for whom some say “M” is named) was both elegant and iron willed. She brought up her son in the tony London enclave of Mayfair at 27 Green Street (a street location on the Bond tourist trail)—a hothouse world of fashion and privilege that is still very much as it was in Fleming’s day. His mother and Mayfair tutored Fleming in dandyism (he had a particular fondness for foot-long cigarette holders) and a love of fine living that was passed in the blood to his most famous character, James Bond.
