Tom Mankiewicz

Tom Mankiewicz wrote three James Bond films. He also came from Hollywood royalty and developed for himself a reputation as script doctor extraordinaire. A creative talent and raconteur beloved by his friends and collaborators, "Mank" never won an Academy Award like his father or uncle did but succeeded where they failed in "playing the game" by his own rules. In this special episode, BBN digs deep on the life and times of the man and writer lovingly dubbed "Wanky Mits" by Sir Roger Moore and considers his legacy within the 007 universe and beyond.
