The OSS 117 Connection: COBRAS Coverage Of Hubert

Let's take a look at some past coverage of OSS 117 at some of my fellow COBRAS' blogs. Philippe Lombard, who penned the excellent booklet on Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath that's included with the French Gaumont DVD box set, did a highly informative series last year on his Quantum of Bond blog examining (in French, but with lots of pictures) the many connections between the OSS 117 series and the James Bond series. You'll be surprised at how many actors overlapped!  David Foster at Permission to Kill has reviewed OSS 117: Terror in Tokyo and OSS 117: Murder For Sale. The HMSS Weblog has a guest review of OSS 117: Rio ne repond plusUna Plaga de Espias has illustrted dossiers (in Spanish) on the OSS 117 novels Travail sans filet by Jean Bruce and Pruneaux a Lugano pour OSS 117 by Josette Bruce. Mister 8 did a post about OSS 117 paperback covers by illustrator Dick Bruna.  And Christopher Mills at Spy-Fi Channel profiled two actresses from OSS 117: Murder For Sale in his Spy Vixens Week: Margaret Lee and Luciana Paluzzi.  While you're there, be sure to poke around and explore all of these wonderful blogs.  (And, webmasters, please let me know if I've overlooked any other major coverage of the character on COBRAS sites; if I have, I apologize!)
