Wes Britton's January 2013 Reviews

It wasn'tplanned that way, but January 2013 was a return to spies for Wes Britton—

For example, not sure if it was me or the topic, but my Monday Jan. 14 interview on Barbara Barnett's "Let's Talk TV" BlogTalk Radio show about TV spies went over 88,000 listeners in two weeks! It's now archived at:

My interview with guitarist Vic Flick about the upcoming sale of his Clifford Essex guitar—on which he played the legendary "James Bond Theme"—is posted at:

Everyone talks about James Bond in terms of the actors who've played him—how about the directors? Wes Britton's "From Terence Young to Sam Mendes: The Many Faces Who Shot James Bond" is up at:

In Argo, Ben Affleck plays Tony Mendez, the architect of the daring 1979 scheme. Read Wes Britton's review of the real story by Mendez, ARGO: How the CIA and Hollywood Pulled off the Most Audacious Rescue in History at:
