More information about Final Jeopardy:
Ian Fleming’s You Only Live Twice, part of the James Bond series, was Fleming’s last novel published in his lifetime. The screenplay for the 1967 film by Roald Dahl pretty much ditched most of the book’s actual plot, leaving only a few characters and locations from the book. Dahl wrote a pretty successful screenplay though — the film was both a critical and commercial success.
