BAD BONDS DISCOVERED: Members of the James Bond Esoterica and Genealogical Club reacted swiftly to mistakes they found in Roderick Mann's May 12 article on Roger Moore. Richard Cibener of Los Angeles and Laurence F. Jay of Pasadena each pointed out that the new Bond movie title "A View to a Kill" was based on the title of a 007 short story and was not created by film maker Albert Broccoli, as our man Mann implied. Mann's claim that Fleming's titles have "long since run out" also was disputed by Cibener, who ticked off three Ian Fleming short-story titles that remain unused, and UCLA graduate student Martin J. Rosenstock, who listed five titles.

There were no Bonds, but there was Bassey and Berry, making the Academy Awards telecast's tribute to the James Bond movies one of the more memorable (tolerable? ) moments of this year's show. Halle Berry, who played Bond girl Jinx opposite Pierce Brosnan in the 2002 movie "Die Another Day," introduced a clips montage that saluted the "sights, sounds and music" of the Bond series, which just celebrated its golden anniversary. Oscars 2013: Nominee list | Red carpet | Fashion After the brief segment, Berry gave way to Dame Shirley Bassey, who belted out the title song to the 1964 Bond film, "Goldfinger.

For 40 years, the suave British secret agent has been a cultural icon, ever since Sean Connery first burst on the screen like a sexual panther in "Dr. No" and identified himself as "Bond, James Bond." With his license to kill, dry martinis and easy way with women and gadgets, 007 has epitomized an ultimate male fantasy, transcending novelist Ian Fleming's Cold War superspy.

"Seventeen-eighteen years old, I was a fan of Lindbergh," says Cubby Broccoli, the producer of 16 James Bond pictures, the most popular film series of all time.

"Never Too Young to Die" (citywide) is more cinematic slumgullion--another reeking Mulligan's stew of a movie into which the film makers have tossed everything within reach, trying frantically to bring it to a high boil. You want James Bond? You want high-tech teens? You want gymnastics? You want drugs, sex and rock 'n' roll? You want car chases and chopper wrecks? You want vanity in a bikini? (And out of it?) You want explosions, one-against-a-hundred bazooka battles, and chases in the sewers?
