Maibaum attended New York University, then studied acting at the University of Iowa. By the time he was in his late twenties, Maibaum was a well established Broadway actor and playwright. He entered films as a screenwriter in 1937, spending the war years with the army's Combat Film Division. In 1946, he joined Paramount as both screenwriter and producer, contributing to such films as The Big Clock (1948) and The Great Gatsby (1949). From advice that making films abroad was an excellent tax shelter, Maibaum formed a partnership in the 1950s with producers Irving Allen and Albert R. Broccoli This led to his involvement in the phenomenally successful James Bond series of the 1960s and 1970s and, after Ian Fleming, Maibaum has arguably been the person most responsible for shaping the image of the screen's most famous spy!','From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Willoughby Gray (5 November 1916 – 13 February 1993) was an English actor of stage and screen born in London. (Though several sources suggest he was born in Aberdeen, Scotland). He was the stepson of Henry Pownall, as his father, Captain John Gray, was killed in Iraq close to the time of his birth. John Willoughby Gray served with distinction during the Second World War with GHQ Liaison Regiment (Phantom). For most of the campaign in Europe he commanded a patrol with 11th Armoured Division. For his gallant and distinguished services in the North West Europe campaign, he was appointed MBE. His recommendation reads: "Captain Gray has commanded a divisional patrol with outstanding success throughout the campaign. The resource and initiative shown by him at all times has resulted in a great deal of vital information reaching Army and Corps HQ much more quickly than would otherwise have been the case, In addition, he has shown great enterprise and complete disregard for his own personal safety on many occasions, notably whilst carrying out reconnaissances in the Antwerp area during the advance through Belgium. The bearing of this officer under arduous conditions and his cheerfulness and willingness to do any work delegated to him unhesitatingly have been an example to those with whom he came in contact." He achieved popularity in the mid-1950s after making 38 appearances on the television series The Adventures of Robin Hood. He appeared as 'Pete' in Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party on its very first run in 1958, this being just one of countless stage performances he made. Though over-shadowed by his stage career, Gray made a handful of incredibly popular films, notably as a priest in Laurence Olivier's film Richard III (1955), The Mummy (1959), Absolution (1978), The Hit(1984), the James Bond film A View to a Kill (1985) as retired Nazi doctor and Max Zorin (Christopher Walken) henchman Karl Mortner/Hans Glaub, and as the elderly and kind king in The Princess Bride (1987). In the late 1980s, he appeared in the BBC drama Howards' Way as banker Sir John Stevens. In Sergei Bondarchuk's 1970 film Waterloo, he is credited as both an actor (playing Captain Ramsey) and a military consultant. Gray died aged 76 in February 1993. His wife, who wrote as Felicity Gray,(Nee Margaret Andraea) was a choreographer, speaker and writer on ballet, who notably taught Gene Tierney for her role in Never Let Me Go.

Gotell was born in Bonn, Germany; his family emigrated to the United Kingdom after the Nazis came to power. A fluent English speaker, he started in films as early as 1943, usually playing German henchmen, such as in We Dive at Dawn (1943). He began to have more established roles by the early fifties, starring in The African Queen (1951), Ice-Cold in Alex (1958), The Guns of Navarone (1961), 55 Days At Peking (1963), Lancelot and Guinevere (1963), The Spy Who Came In From The Cold (1965), Lord Jim (1965), Black Sunday (1977), The Boys From Brazil (1978), and Cuba (1979). Gotell won the role of KGB General Anatol Gogol in The Spy Who Loved Me for being a look-alike of the former head of Soviet secret police Lavrentiy Pavlovitch Beria. His first role in the James Bond films came in 1963, when he played the henchman Morzeny in From Russia with Love. Starting in the late 1970s, he played the recurring role of General Gogol in the James Bond series, beginning with The Spy Who Loved Me in 1977. The character returned in Moonraker (1979), For Your Eyes Only (1981), Octopussy (1983), A View to a Kill (1985) and The Living Daylights (1987). As the Cold War developed, the role of leader of the KGB was seen to change attitudes to the West - from direct competitor to collaborator. His final appearance, as the Cold War began to become less imminent, sees him transferred to a different, more diplomatic role. Gotell is one of a few actors to have played a villain and a Bond ally in the film series (others being Joe Don Baker, Charles Gray and Richard Kiel). Throughout his career, Gotell also made numerous guest appearances in a wide array of television series. He played Chief Constable Cullen in Softly, Softly: Taskforce between 1969 and 1975. He guested in many series including Danger Man, Knight Rider, The A-Team, Airwolf, The X-Files, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, MacGyver, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Miami Vice, Cagney and Lacey, The Saint, and many others.

Rien ne semble prédestiner, a priori, ce fils de financier à opter pour une carrière artistique. Mais, son père ne s’opposant pas à sa vocation théâtrale, le jeune Jean tente le concours d’entrée au Conservatoire National Supérieur d’Art Dramatique de Paris… où il est recalé. Néanmoins, Jean Rougerie connaîtra une carrière théâtrale dense, à la fois comme comédien, metteur en scène et directeur de théâtre. Dirigeant, notamment, le Théâtre du Château de Fontainebleau et le Théâtre Firmin Gémier, il adapte Eugène Ionesco, Prosper Mérimée, Molière, Marivaux, Louis-Ferdinand Céline, Eugène Labiche, Emile Zola, Dostoïevski… Pour ce qui est du grand écran, il aborde d’abord très lointainement les plateaux de cinéma durant deux décennies, jouant pour la première fois dans «Monsieur Vincent» (1947), avec Pierre Fresnay. Ce n’est que dans les années soixante-dix qu’il s’investit sérieusement dans une carrière cinématographique. Dans «Lacombe Lucien» (1973), il interprète un ancien flic travaillant pour le compte des allemands, lors de l’Occupation. Il s’agit sans doute de l’un de ses rôles les plus importants, ainsi que l’un de ses meilleurs films, mis en scène avec application par Louis Malle. Il campe ensuite des silhouettes furtives pourLuis Buñuel avec «Le fantôme de la liberté» (1974), puis pour Bertrand Tavernier avec «Que la fête commence» (1974). Robert Lamoureux lui offre un rôle d’officier nazi dans «On a retrouvé la septième compagnie!» (1975) avec Jean Lefebvre, puis on le voit en premier ministre dans «La raison d’état» (1978) de André Cayatte. Bertrand Blier sait mettre à profit sa bouille légèrement ahurie dans «Préparez vos mouchoirs» (1977), où il est le père P.D.G. d’un enfant surdoué, puis dans «Buffet froid» (1978), où il tient le rôle du témoin. Des personnages parfois cocasses, souvent inquiétants et teintés d’ambiguïté, pour un comédien au physique singulier, parfait pour des rôles de salauds.','Daniel Benzali (born January 20, 1950) is a Brazilian-American stage, television and film actor.Benzali was a theatre actor before making guest-starring roles on television series such as Star Trek: The Next Generation, The X-Files, NYPD Blue and L.A.
