007 in Shanghai

I thought you might like to know that a major James Bond exhibition has opened in Shanghai, complete with a waxwork of Sean Connery leaning against a replica scale model of Bond's Aston Martin DB5. Shown is a Poster of Michelle Yeoh as Chinese spy Wai Lin in the movie Tomorrow Never Dies (1997). Some, if not all of these exhibits, are from the Barbican's exhibition Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style, shown last year (CLICK). The Shanghai exhibition comes hot on the heels of the release of the latest Bond movie Skyfall in China. Chinese censors cut a scene showing prostitution in Macau and deleted a line which mentions torture by Chinese security agents. Tut, tut, Meester Bond; no Brit lies; this ees zee people's Communist Party! Below is a Replica of Golden Girl Jill Masterson watched by Gert Fröbe as Goldfinger (1964).
