    Provenance

    The Collection Of The Late Peter Hunt


    Pre-Lot Text

    The following Lot and also Lots 92, 93 and 94 are from the collection of the late Peter Hunt (1925-2002). During the course of a long and distinguished career, Hunt edited the first five Bond films creating a style of "sharp cutting" as he called it, that is still emulated by editors and directors of action films today. Hunt made his debut as a director with the sixth Bond film On His Majesty's Secret Service, 1969.
