I've just recently come across 2 historical documents: one is from the MI6 archives, was declassified a few years ago, is about as big as a small town's phone book, is dated 1960 (with a great many addendums over the years, the most recent ones being dated 2007), and looks like the complete training curriculum for the 00 Section; the other is from the KGB archives (apparently someone forgot to shred it), dates back apparently to the late 1940s, consists of 10 letters in Russian, and appears to be correspondence between Blofeld and then-head of the KGB Lavrenty Beria (the acronym SPEKTR appears in those letters quite a few times -- I think it might actually mean SPECTRE -- as do several familiar names such as Emilio Largo, Tov Kronsteen, Fiona Volpe, Anton Morzeny, Dr. Julius No, Rosa Klebb and Le Chiffre). But I want to ask all your opinions, do you think these documents are legit, or might they have been cleverly fabricated for the purpose of disinformation?
What's on your mind?
I calculated how long the James Bond movies of each actor are in total and i combined the total. The movies with Sean Connery are 11 hours, 42 minutes and 37 seconds long, On Her Majesty's Secret Service is 2 hours, 22 minutes and 19 seconds long, the movies with Roger Moore are 14 hours, 49 minutes and 13 seconds long, the movies with Timothy Dalton are 4 hours, 24 minutes and 16 seconds long, the movies with Pierce Brosnan are 8 hours, 30 minutes and 12 seconds long and the movies with Daniel Craig are 9 hours, 2 minutes and 5 seconds long
11:42:37 (Sean Connery) + 2:22:19 (On Her Majesty's Secret Service) = 14:04:56
14:04:56 (Sean Connery and On Her Majesty's Secret Service) + 14:49:13 (Roger Moore movies) = 1:04:54:09
1:04:54:09 (Sean Connery, On Her Majesty's Secret Service and Roger Moore) + 4:24:16 (Timothy Dalton) = 1:09:18:25
1:09:18:25 (Sean Connery, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton) + 8:30:12 (Pierce Brosnan) = 1:17:48:37
1:17:48:37 (Sean Connery, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan) + 9:02:05 (Daniel Craig) = 2:02:50:42
What was the real name of M #3 -- was it Barbara Mawdsley or Olivia Mansfield? I've seen sources for both these names (and the movies don't mention it, in fact in Casino Royale she warns Bond not to mention her name), so which one is correct?

Why is it considered such a bad Bond movie
What if they made a Jinx movie would it be a good idea or bad idea
Does it take place in a different universe
Has anyone read any Bond novels other than the Fleming ones? Like the John Gardner ones or Anthony Horowitz or Raymond Benson etc. If so, which ones do you recommend? Which one is the better author in your opinion and why? I was at a local used book store and found quite a stash of John Gardner Bond novels. I’m curious to know which one I should start with or should I start with a different author’s rendition of 007? Please anyone let me know. I’ve read most the Fleming ones. Maybe 2 or 3 I haven’t yet read, but when I do finish them I’ll need new Bond books. Where do I begin?
