James Bond Facts #1
It wasn't M who called James Bond a blunt instrument. Yes, Dame Judi Dench did in Casino Royale but back in 1964 in a renovated Japanese castle surrounded by deadly plants, volcanic fumaroles, lethal snakes and poisonous spiders, 007 was called a blunt instrument by none other than Dr Guntram Shatterhand, a.k.a. Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
Page 171 of the 1966 Pan paperback edition: "... You are a common thug, a blunt instrument wielded by dolts in high places...."
Odd to think that a female head of MI6 and a syphilitic megalomaniac think alike, isn't it?
