Focus of the Week: Terence Young

The director who introduced Bond to film-goers, Terence Young added style, wit and class to three 007 adventures, all infused with fast-paced action and thrills.
“In a Bond film, you aren’t involved in cinema-verite or avant-garde,� he once said. “One is involved in colossal fun.�
Shaun Terence Young was born in 1915, the son of an English police commissioner in the International Sector of Shanghai. He was educated in England, studying at Cambridge University. His love of cinema led him to get a summer job at BIP Studios and he later came to the fore as a screenwriter with melodrama DANGEROUS MOONLIGHT (1941) starring Anton Walbrook and Sally Gray.
His film career was interrupted by World War II, serving with the renowned Guards Armoured Tank Division. Following the end of the war, he returned to screenwriting and became an assistant to such legendary filmmakers as Jacques Feyder, Alexander Korda, Josef Von Sternberg and King Vidor.
Young made his own directorial debut with ONE NIGHT WITH YOU (1948). His next film, CORRIDOR OF MIRRORS (1948), starred Lois Maxwell, who went on to play Miss Moneypenny in the Bond series, and won the Best Film Of The Year Award in France. THE RED BERET (1953) proved to be significant, becoming his first collaboration with Bond producer Albert R. Broccoli and screenwriter Richard Maibaum.
With an established reputation as an action director. Young was the perfect choice to bring James Bond to the screen with DR. NO (1962). Many believed he embodied the same qualities as 007, particularly a knowledge and understanding of the finer things.
“Terence Young could have played James Bond,� said DR. NO editor Peter Hunt. “It was his style and his schooling of Sean that really made James Bond James Bond.�
Young encouraged Connery to wear Saville Row suits at night even insisting the actor sleep in a suit and tie so he would wear it with ease and nonchalance. Young also guided Connery through the fine wines and menus in expensive restaurants.
With DR. NO a huge success, Young directed the next Bond film FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE (1963), which he believed was “the best of the Bond pictures. Not because I directed it, although I think it’s well directed, but because it was the best subject for a Bond film.� Developing the character further while maintaining the style and tempo of DR.NO, Young’s work found favour with fans and collaborators alike.
“Terence Young was a phenomenal character,� observed special effects supervisor John Stears. “He would just absolutely get into your mind what he was thinking. You’d do things for Terence without thinking — you’d just do it because you knew that was what had to be done.�
After taking a break for GOLDFINGER (1964), Young returned to 007 with THUNDERBALL (1965), his final Bond adventure. Young continued to work consistently over the years directing WAIT UNTIL DARK (1967), MAYERLING (1968), RED SUN (1971), THE VALACHI PAPERS (1972), BLOODLINE (1979), INCHON (1981), THE JIGSAW MAN (1983) and RUN FOR YOUR LIFE (1988). In 1994, while preparing a movie in Europe, he fell ill and died of a heart attack in hospital at Cannes, France.

Boyle bound for Bond? His new comments

007 and counting… As the months tick down to the planned start of principal photography on the next entry in the EON franchise, the question of who will be appointed director on the new Bond movie has become more and more urgent. Ever since it emerged that Danny Boyle was being considered as a surprise possible director for Bond 25, the press and other media has been rife with rumours and speculation.

But now Boyle himself has spoken on the matter, confirming that this is not just rumour, but a serious possibility. Speaking on Wednesday (14th March) at the New York premiere of Trust, a ten-part television series on the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, Boyle confirmed that he has been collaborating on a Bond story idea with John Hodge, who wrote the screen treatments for Trainspotting (1996) and its recent sequel, T2. The Slumdog Millionaire director, who also oversaw a short ‘007’ film with Daniel Craig and Queen Elizabeth for the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics, commented: ‘We’re working on a script at the moment and we’ll see what happens. But it’s a great idea so hopefully it’ll work. I’d love to be able to tell you more but I’m not going to’.

Boyle’s possible connection with Bond 25 was also evident in remarks he made in a separate interview, where he pointed out that he was working on a Richard Curtis movie (All You Need Is Love) for Working Title, so any involvement with Bond would be at the end of 2018: ‘I am working on a Richard Curtis script at the moment. We hope to start shooting that in six or seven weeks. Then Bond would be right at the end of the year. But we are working on them both right now. We’ve got an idea, John Hodge, the screenwriter, and I… and John is writing it at the moment. And it all depends on how it turns out. It would be foolish of of me to give any of it away’.

Boyle’s comments reinforce the news that leaked out recently that Boyle and his writing partner had pitched an idea for Bond 25 to EON for consideration. The 61-year old director also apparently has the backing of Bond star Daniel Craig, who will probably be playing 007 for the last time. It has also been reported that EON producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are both very keen on Boyle’s proposed story concept.
