On Her Majesty's Secret Service 50th Anniversary
James Bond Celebration at Hotel Palácio Estoril
In 1968, Peter Hunt set out to make ‘the best Bond film ever’, as he often described it.
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service was to become a diﬀerent Bond film, having one of Fleming’s best novels as its basis.
Hunt wanted to stay as close to Fleming’s original story as possible, and had already been working on the script with Richard Maibaum during their work on Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Fleming’s novel could largely be split in two halves: There was snow action, which was to be filmed in Switzerland. Then there was also love action: A wonderful love story between James Bond and Teresa de Vincenzo. Hunt faced a serious problem when he read the book, only to discover most of the love action took place in fictional Royale-les-Eaux. Which region on our planet had close ties to both espionage and royalty?
Peter Hunt took his film crew to Portugal, specifically to the area around Lisbon. There he found some remarkable locations, that were simply perfect as the setting of James Bond’s ultimate romance.
In the Spring of 2019, James Bond fans from around the globe will gather to celebrate the film On Her Majesty's Secret Service 50th anniversary. Together with members of cast and crew, they will be able to visit the filming locations in both Portugal and Switzerland. The event will be a unique celebration of Peter Hunt’s James Bond film and the 007 lifestyle.
