Albert Romolo Broccoli, CBE (Hon) (April 5, 1909 – June 27, 1996), nicknamed "Cubby", was an American film producer who made more than 40 motion pictures throughout his career. Most of the films were made in the United Kingdom and they were often filmed at Pinewood Studios. Co-founder of Danjaq, LLC and Eon Productions, Broccoli is most notable as the producer of many of the James Bond films. He and Harry Saltzman saw the films develop from relatively low-budget origins to large-budget, high-grossing extravaganzas, and Broccoli's heirs continue to produce new Bond films. Wikipedia
Admitted that he never foresaw the enormous success of the James Bond series.
He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6910 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on January 16, 1990.
There was a memorable incident on one of the James Bond film sets: several crew members decided to get some drinks, and charged them to Broccoli. When he later discovered what had happened, he was not at all angry about having to pay for all of those drinks; the only thing about this which upset him was that the crew had spelled his name wrong on the checks.
His James Bond series is the most successful in film history - from 1962 - 1997, they grossed more than $1 billion.
His daughter and stepson both carry out his legacy and took over his business of making James Bond films.
Looks like we don't have Albert R. Broccoli salary information. Sorry!
[on Sean Connery] It was the sheer confidence he exuded. I've never seen a surer guy. Every time he made a point he hit the desk with that great fist of his, or slapped his thigh. It wasn't just an act either. When he left we watched him through the window as he walked down the street. He walked like the most arrogant son-of-a-gun you've ever seen. "That's our Bond", I said.
For every dollar you give away, you'll get a hundred back. And for every buck you steal, you'll lose a thousand.
That we were lucky to stumble upon Ian Fleming and Bond was a bit of a good fortune. The rest was all hard work.
I love looking at the old Bond films. Maybe it's purely out of reminiscence, the nostalgic things you think about. But there were some very good films made and I think that the public has enjoyed them, too.
I've never made up my mind who Bond is. Sometimes, I think it's very dramatic, but mostly it's comedy. One thing I know for certain - it's entertainment.
[Asked which of the Bonds had the most sex appeal] When George [George Lazenby] walks through the office, the secretaries fall off their chairs.
[on Cary Grant's decision to turn down Broccoli's offer to play James Bond] He didn't want to do it. He said, "It's a good idea, and I like it, but I can't do Bond." And we couldn't have paid him the money - it would have taken up half our budget.
I honestly feel a responsibility toward all the Bond fans out there. I know they look forward to these pictures, and so I'm going to go on delivering them as long as I can. Also, it's a challenge, which I enjoy. We try to make each picture more exciting than the one before, to take Bond somewhere he hasn't already been.
[on George Lazenby and his one-time performance as James Bond in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)] He could have been a good Bond, but the minute he signed up, he became impossible. He now says he made a mistake. Occasionally, he would call and say he wanted to do Bond again, but I said we couldn't do that. It was a good movie, though, with a good script. George did the best he could in the role.
