About Eon Productions
  2. 2. 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 Jacquiline.
