The 1982 convention
was on a much larger scale than previous events, being held at the
Wembley Conference Centre over the weekend of 24th/25th April in a
200-seater auditorium. Featuring screenings of From Russia With
Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Live
And Let Die, and the 1979 Sean Connery film Cuba, the
convention also held a 'James Bond Mastermind Competition' and
included a separate exhibition of Bond costumes and memorabilia.
The guests appearing at this event included Editor & Director Peter
Hunt, James Bond credit title designer Maurice Binder, Production
Designer Syd Cain, Screenwriter Christopher Wood, James Bond
continuation author John Gardner, Stuntman Fred (Krilencu) Haggerty
(who turned up unannounced and asked if it was okay to watch From
Russia With Love - great bloke!), and John McLusky - illustrator
of the original Daily Express James Bond comic strips.
