Lee appeared at a very special Ian Fleming Tribute at the London Palladium Theatre on 5 October 2008, performing From Russia With Love. Hosted by Joanna Lumley and Stephen Fry, this unique and glamorous evening celebrated the world’s greatest spy, James Bond, and the life of his creator Ian Fleming.
Stars from the worlds of film and theatre read from and enacted Fleming’s work, including some material never heard before, and a 60-piece orchestra accompanied some of the biggest names in music as they performed the best-loved Bond themes.
The programme below lists the host of stars taking part in this wonderful event which, through music, words and film, revelled in everything Bond: the villains, the cars, the guns,
the gadgets, and the girls.
From Russia With Love
From Russia With Love version 2 11-Nov-08 - thanks to an anonymous donor for a much clearer version than the original. It was however missing the first few bars, so I have edited the two files together - you will definitely notice the improvement in sound quality a few seconds in!
From Russia With Love - thanks to GillianG for marrying the audio above with a slideshow of stills to create this treat.
Thanks to Abs for the first three and KarenC for the next and to Abs again for the first of the curtain call photos.
