Death Of Miss Moneypenny All TNT Needed To Run Monthlong Bond Marathon

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.

"And just in case viewers miss the most recent marathon, we're showing an entire year of Bond when the fourth Indiana Jones movie comes out," TNT programming director Michael Lemke said Monday. "Sean Connery, if you remember, was in the third one."

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.
