Fleming's novels featured Bond as a suave English gentleman. Very posh and proper on the surface, very... well, you get the idea. Saw a tape of an interview with him when the first film with Connery cast as 007 was released. It seems he was originally upset with the selection - then after watching on the screen said something like he wished he could rewrite Bond as a Scot. A gentleman, of course, but with the edge Connery brought to the role - Whaddaya expect from a former lorry driver?

Haven't seen Songcatcher - waiting for a really important film, like, Lord of the Rings ;-)
