About Eon Productions
Albert R. Broccoli
Albert R. Broccoli nicknamed Chubby, was an American film producer who made more than 40
motion pictures throughout his career. He was born in the borough of Queens Newyork city. Most of
the films were made in United Kingdom and were shooted in Pinewood studios. He died on 27 June
1996 at the age of 87 Beverly hills, California. When Broccoli became interested in bringing Ian
Fleming's James Bond character into features, he discovered that the rights already
belonged to the Canadian producer Harry Saltzman, who had long wanted to break into
film, and who had produced several stage plays and films with only modest success. When
the two were introduced by a mutual friend, screenwriter Wolf Mankowitz, Saltzman
refused to sell the rights, but agreed to partner with Broccoli and co-produce the films,
which led to the creation of the production company EON Productions and its parent
(holding) company Danjaq, LLC, named after their two wives' first names—Dana and

Herschel Saltzman, known as Harry Saltzman was a Canadian theater and film producer who
co-produced the James Bond Film series with Albert R. Broccoli. Saltzman and Broccoli
formed a partnership in 1962 to create the holding company Danjaq, LLC and the
production company Eon Productions and almost immediately began recruiting
personnel such as production designer Ken Adam and teaming writers including
Richard Maibaum and Mankowitz. With the rights to Casino Royale having gone to
an early television adaptation, the team began considering the best novel to adapt
and introduce the character. After meeting with United Artists and having received
a million dollars in financing, the filmmakers chose Dr. No. Saltzman would remain
Broccoli's partner up through the ninth film in the series, 1974's The Man with the

Authorities appear to be ensuring that the James Bond film doesn't overshadow big-
budget Chinese releases at the box office.
HONG KONG -- Sony Pictures' Skyfall might be on target to hit the billion-dollar mark in global
box office, but Daniel Craig’s latest outing as James Bond won't be hitting theaters in China
The Hollywood reporter has learned that Chinese authorities now are eyeing a late-January or
early-February bow, a solid three months later than its original release date of Nov. 2 -- the date
still listed on the official James Bond website, 007.com.
