   "Diamonds Aren't Forever" episode of ALFRED
   	HITCHCOCK PRESENTS		         1989   George Lazenby=
   Goldeneye                                     1995   Pierce Brosnan
   Tomorrow Never Dies                           1997   Pierce Brosnan

* Woody Allen plays his nephew, "Jimmy Bond"
+ Only a cameo--Lazenby drives an Aston Martin with license plate "JB" in
this made-for-television movie and is clearly supposed to be Bond,
though he is never called by name.
= Lazenby plays "James ... [sic]"
x Bond does not appear, but "Miss Moneypacket" drives a car with a "JB 007"
license plate.

(Many people say that CASINO ROYALE is not a real Bond movie, but
rather a parody. NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN is a movie not made by Broccoli
& Co, but otherwise has the usual look. "The Strange Case...," "The
Return of ...," and "Diamonds Aren't Forever" are also not part of the
"main line" of Bond films.)

(Michael Golan mentions also CANNONBALL (1976), but in that Roger Moore
is explicit that he is *Roger Moore*, not James Bond, in spite of all
appearances. Still, some may want to count this. "M" and "Miss
Moneypacket" appear in "The Strange Case of the End of Civilisation as
We Know It," a 1977 British television production starring John Cleese;
they were played by Kenneth Benda and Charlotte Alexandra respectively.)

Bruce Long (bruce@asu.edu) says, "The 'Hostage'" episode of 'The Master'
(series starring Lee Van Cleef) has George Lazenby and David McCallum as
guest stars. Each of them are obviously supposed to be his famous
character (but McCallum is the villain, as though Kuryakin had become
cynical in his later years)."
