James Bond
producer Albert R. "Cubby" Broccoli and actress Dana Wilson Broccoli (born Dana Natol). In 1995, Cubby Broccoli handed over control of Eon Productions, the production company responsible for the James Bond
James Bond
series of films, to Barbara and her half-brother Michael G. Wilson; they continue to run the company as of 2017.[2] Barbara became President of the National Youth Theatre after the success of their 60th Anniversary Diamond Gala at Shaftesbury Theatre in 2016. Broccoli married and divorced director and producer Frederick M. Zollo.[when?].[3] She was appointed Honorary Officer of the Order of the British Empire by the Queen of the United Kingdom in the 2008 New Year Honours. In 2014 she was selected as a member of the jury for the 64th Berlin International Film Festival.[4] Career[edit] James Bond
James Bond
franchise[edit] Broccoli started in the Bond franchise at the age of 17, working in the publicity department of The Spy Who Loved Me. Six years later, she became an assistant director on 1983's Octopussy. Soon after, she progressed to become an associate producer of the film The Living Daylights in 1987.[5] However, her most notable role has been as a producer of the Bond films starring Pierce Brosnan
Pierce Brosnan
and later Daniel Craig.[6] Chitty Chitty Bang Bang[edit] Following her father's death in 1996, Broccoli worked with London theatre producer Michael Rose, to create the stage musical version of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang based on the 1968 musical film starring Dick Van Dyke and Sally Ann Howes. Broccoli rehired the original songwriters from the film to write the new material for the stage version. The Sherman Brothers
Sherman Brothers
wrote five new songs for the show which debuted on April 16, 2002. The show ran at the London Palladium
London Palladium
and was the most financially successful show to have ever played there, breaking numerous other impressive records.[citation needed] Chitty Chitty Bang Bang later transferred to Broadway, but was considered a failure, receiving poor reviews and playing just 319 performances, closing with the loss of a large proportion of the initial $15m investment. The musical has toured extensively in the UK and in Asia, with a revised version of the show touring the United States in 2008.[citation needed] Chariots of Fire
Chariots of Fire
(2012 stage play)[edit] Broccoli co-produced Chariots of Fire, the stage adaptation of the film of the same title. Broccoli's involvement with Chariots of Fire extends back to 1980, when she introduced her friend Dodi Fayed
Dodi Fayed
to the screenplay. He later co-financed the film and became its executive producer.[7] She co-produced the play along with Hugh Hudson, who directed the 1981 Oscar-winning film.[citation needed] Other stage play productions[edit]
