Tuesday was the 105th anniversary of the birth of Harry Saltzman. With Cubby Broccoli he co-founded the Bond franchise by the creation of EON Productions (standing for Everything or Nothing) and he was involved from the start with Dr No 1962 through to The Man With the Golden Gun 1974. Born in Sherbrooke, Quebec, he was raised in Saint John, New Brunswick and the family later moved to Cleveland, Ohio. He had some wanderlust and joined the circus fraternity, moving to Paris, France where he started booking vaudeville acts. In WW2 he returned to Canada to join the Royal Canadian Air Force and was medically discharged in 1943. At that point he moved into the US Psychological Warfare Bureau and joined the OSS, which was the forerunner of the CIA. After the war he moved back to Paris, France and booked acts for film, being involved in the circle of the French author Colette. His interest in film led initially to the US, then to London where he married. He started Woodfall Productions and was behind Look Back in Anger 1959, A Taste of Honey 1961 and Tom Jones 1963, which won the Oscar for Best Film 1964. The Bond films however made him a fortune and he bought and lived for many years in a mansion in Denham, Buckinghamshire close to the Pinewood Studios in Iver Heath, which were given a new lease of life from the franchise. However although he had further success with a new production company called Lowndes, and made the Harry Palmer films with Michael Caine and his passion project Battle of Britain 1969, his speculations and investments began to falter. His wife was diagnosed with cancer and they moved for the most part to a property in St Petersburg, Florida for her health. She died in 1980 and he returned to London but more rash investments led to more failures and he died of a heart attack visiting Paris in 1994. His contribution to cinema is strong from the other films mentioned but with his involvement in the development of James Bond, he is a true cinema legend and we believe is worthy of a match in his honour and hope you will accept.
