PART 2
Real Life Spies


For a look at pre-WW2 Britain’s spy culture, here’s an interesting book review by Hayden Peake (real name?) posted on the CIA’s incredibly interesting and bizarrely open-to-anyone website:

https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/csi-studies/studies/vol.-54-no.-4/six-a-history-of-britain2019s-secret-intelligence.html

The first book to seriously blow the lid off the misinformation, cobweb covered top secret folders and outright lies of the participating parties of “Allied” WW2 spying was the seminal and still exciting A Man Called Intrepid. It’s heatedly debated how accurate the events author William Stevenson recounts were, but he covers so much territory in bringing to light the entirely different war that was fought in candle lit bedrooms, bright university research labs and on pitch-black nights in France that you have to spot him a few points in even trying to document such a huge subject. The fact that it literally re-writes history books by exposing London & Washington’s “facts” about the major battles of WW2 as propaganda or outright deception makes more than a few people nervous to this day.

It also makes me wonder about the rest of history, as “written by the winners”...

PART 3
Real Life Spies


Many people have tried to nail who exactly was the wartime model for Ian Fleming’s James Bond. Many more operatives have taken credit for it themselves by smiling and telling everyone who would listen that their role was too secret to admit the details of. Somerset Maugham’s 1928 novel Ashenden, based on his spying experiences in WW1, were an enormous influence on the young Fleming, as was the heart-pounding Hitchcock movie Secret Agent that was made from it in 1936. Later, the 1939 movie Clouds Over Europe had Ralph Richardson playing a bluff, joking, umbrella-swirling veddy English agent that Patrick Macnee admits was his inspiration for John Steed of Avengers fame, and co-stars an almost unrecognizably handsome flyer-agent Lawrence Olivier as a striking Bond prototype.

Fleming and Maugham had bizarrely similar lives, both coming from upper-crust lawyer and banking families, dabbling in spying in their respective wars, both accepting important assignments in Russia, and later writing about the gritty side of it all to become overnight best selling authors of their day.

Somerset Maugham also has a huge place in Tiki history as the writer of Rain and The Moon and Sixpence; he was fascinated with South Seas Islands, near-East pagan cultures and bizarre sex practices, and was a huge figure in re-introducing these ideas to the 20th century.

I have the exact answer Cammo.

It was Mr. Moto !!

Both the literary (1935) and cinematic (1937) versions...



If there was no Mr. Moto, there would be no James Bond.

007 was a candy ass compared to Mr. Moto.

Could James Bond ever do anything like this ??...



Plus Mr. Moto was way more "Tiki"...



Mr. Moto will be making an
appearance at Tiki Oasis !!

Also if there was no Mr. Moto who would have inspired Paul Johnson to invent Surf Music ??



(Sorry Dick Dale, the Belairs arguably beat you to it.)

No Mr. Moto... no Surf Music... no Barbwires at Spy Oasis 2012.

Actually TikiVato, if it wasn't for Mr. Moto, Tiki culture (and Tiki Oasis) may not have even existed. As pointed out by Nepheria in the
clip above, Mr. Moto was one of the earliest Mixologists of the depression-era. Many have theorized that he was the inspiration to Donn Beach and Vic Bergeron for many of the classic Tropical drinks that followed. This was documented in a lost chapter of Beachbum Berry's "Sippin' Safari", omitted by the publisher. ( )

But not all things turned out on a good note. In the latter part of his career, Mr. Moto became more of a morally ambiguous figure. Here we see him in disguise (as usual) in the alias of Le Chiffre, James Bond's first live-action villian...



And as portrayed in the 1954 television adaption of "Casino Royale"...
