Barbara Broccoli - 'Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool'

Episode Summary

The woman who has co-produced every James Bond film of the last 22 years, with her step-brother and EON Productions partner Michael G. Wilson, grants a rare interview about the origin and evolution of the 007 franchise, how her own contributions to the films have grown over the years and why she spent 31 years fighting to produce her latest film — an adaptation of Peter Turner's memoir about his relationship with the actress Gloria Grahame — which was made on a far smaller scale than any Bond film, but means every bit as much to her. But first: Jeffrey Mantor of Larry Edmunds Bookshop and Nadine Vassallo of Book Soup join Scott to discuss the best Hollywood-related books of 2017 — and of all time.
