ATLANTA—The Sept. 29 death of actress Lois Maxwell, best known as flirtatious secretary Miss Moneypenny in 14 James Bond films, was all the excuse TNT needed to run a monthlong Bond movie marathon, according to sources at the cable network. The Bond marathon comes just weeks after last month's, which aired because the granddaughter of the actor who portrayed Q found out she was accepted to Cambridge University.

The Bond marathon will premiere Monday, will be rebroadcast in November after a weekend Shawshank Redemption marathon, and anytime TNT has a 12-hour gap to fill in its schedule.
