|Albert R. Broccoli|
|Notable work||James Bond film series|
Why does the Broccoli family own James Bond?
The Bond films are currently produced by Barbara Broccoli and her half-brother Michael G Wilson. Broccoli’s father, Albert R “Cubby” Broccoli, was the original producing co-founder of the Bond franchise, turning Ian Fleming’s literary series into a cinematic behemoth.
How did Cubby Broccoli make his money?
He worked for a while for a jeweler, and was thrilled to have been able to make a personal delivery to Irving Thalberg. Eventually, it was Hughes who got him directly involved, making Broccoli an assistant director on “The Outlaw.” The job sounded more important than it was.
Did Albert Broccoli invent Broccoli?
The popular belief that broccoli was developed in the 18th century by an Italian family of the surname Broccoli (of whom Albert Broccoli, co-producer of the James Bond films, is a descendant) has little or no readily available evidence to support it.
