Collecting On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

Charles Helfenstein just might be the premier collector of memorabilia surrounding the 1969 James Bond movie “On Her Majesty`s Secret Service.”

It was that collection, and his connections with the film`s director, Peter Hunt, which brought Mr. Helfenstein from his Mount Pleasant home to Hollywood and to the attention of the producer of a new series of Bond films for DVD.

“I don`t think anybody could do in-depth research on `On Her Majesty`s Secret Service` without talking to Charles,” said John Cork, one of three producers of the DVDs and the director of the documentary portion of the videos. “We interviewed more people involved with `Majesty` than anybody has in the past.” The film`s director and producer were interviewed, as well as George Lazenby, the star.
