Broccoli's early film career saw him do nothing spectacularly famous, although ''The Trials of Oscar Wilde'' was a spectacular flop that bankrupted him and then partner Creator/IrwinAllen. However, [[Literature/JamesBond a certain series of British spy novels]] by one Creator/IanFleming was becoming very popular, and Broccoli saw an opportunity. He found the rights had already been sold, so he decided to team up with a man named Harry Saltzman. When the studio execs at Creator/UnitedArtists objected to their casting of Creator/SeanConnery as the lead character, they insisted on it. And it paid off.
