Now you can get a piece of James Bond. Christie's in London will offer 50 items of Bond memorabilia during a charity sale to mark 007's half century. 40 of the lots will be sold online, with the star items going during a live auction on October 5, which is "Global James Bond Day." Christie's director, Nicolette Tomkinson, says the auction will be full of Bond memories. SOUNDBITE: Nicolette Tomkinson, Christie's director, saying (English): "Each and every one of the 23 films is represented in the auction and there really is something for everyone: From the cufflinks to the cars, from Doctor No to Skyfall, from gadgets to Bond style and from the Bond girls to the Bond villains." For Bond producer Michael Wilson, the auction is like a walk down memory lane. SOUNDBITE: Michael Wilson, producer EON productions, saying (English): "Wonderful thing about this is there's an Aston Martin, well everybody loves them, but there is also ... there are some tarot cards or there is a complete poker set and table, so there are things for a lot of different collectors and a lot of different pocket books, but for me they are all equally exciting." The sale, which will raise funds for a range of charities including UNICEF, is one of a series of events being held around the world to mark the anniversary of one of the world's longest-running and most successful film franchises.
