About The Prmhirtiua.,. M.nxr Say Never Again" to the film that nobody believed could ever be made. The cinema history books had already recorded actor Scan Connerys vehement anaertions that he would nevef again play the role of James Bond. There seemed to be no pomd-blc chance that the mueh-hjved Scottish actor mould ever be persuaded to resume the role of everybody favorite secret agent, James Hoad, 007, licensed to kill. Vet, despite all predictions, in September, 19H2 ihc cameras rolled on the first day of production of "Never Say Never Again," a Warner Bros, release with Scan Connery starring as Ian Flemings James Bond. The buzz of excitement during production reverberated around the world and Ue questlcHis on everybody's I if were, of course: Why had Connery accepted the role and who had managed to persuade him? The persuasion came from an uncxfiectcd quarter. .lack Schwirtzman, un American film producer with a background in entertainment taw, had been the man with the patience, Uic courage and the skill needed to acquire the luiota and to prvsenl the idea tn Connery in on ttfalmg way. According to ((Nincrv, his decision lo play Bond mas influenced ly his wife Muhcltnc. (It mas also Miclicllnc ho later came tip with the catchy and witty title o (lie film ) "When Jiak Sehmartzman came to me to ask me to do Never ha Never Again, Michcltnc encouraged me to think alxiut It carefully Why not play the role? What do you risk? After all these years it might te interesting The more 1 thought alaait It, ihc more 1 thought she was right There mas also a certain amount of curiosity tn me about the role, having been no long away from It" Connery explains all this with the patience of a man mho knoms that he mill be asked the same questions hundreds of times before and after die Aim ofa ns. and mho has already ansmered It time and time again.
