If you are a DAF fan, then you will be delighted to meet and make the acquaintance of Bruce Glover, “Mr. Wint” from Diamonds Are Forever, at the third annual Bond Collectors` Weekend, Bond Weekend 2000.
Bruce Glover is a charming and hilarious fellow who is bringing many anecdotes from his days hanging with Sean Connery (including a funny pickup soccer match with Bruce`s team) and other stars like Jack Nicholson and his fellow co-stars, to the Bond event in New Orleans. The last time we spoke he kept me in stiches for more than an hour and I promised to keep silent for now about some of his star gossip!!
Besides stints as a college football player and soldier, Mr. Glover held a variety of fascinating jobs before being “bitten by the acting bug”. Mr. and Mrs. Glover will also be sharing on their lifelong legacy with America`s nature conservancy movement. Their famous family includes their son, the popular character actor Crispin Glover.
As with Bond Collectors` Weekend 1999 in Las Vegas, the Bond Weekend event provides for each fan wishing to do so guaranteed quality time with the celebs in attendance, (yes, you can actually talk to them at length in a casual setting and do not have to wait on a long line to do so!) and we have different guests for each day/evening of this Friday through Sunday event. Attendees at the Weekend (besides you, dear fan!) include Bond authors and fanzine/web writers, industry insiders and super-collectors who will be showing off their wares.
How can we love a Bond movie like DAF where Bond never fires a traditional gunshot? We just do and we will celebrate the whole legacy in New Orleans, including inside information on Bond 20 and The World Is Not Enough during a Weekend to “Live and Let Die For”!
Registration for Bond Weekend 2000 includes tons of perks and goodies—check it out! Contact us with questions for booking group rates!
