Happy Valentine's Day! Unabashedly romantic, and with Florence as the backdrop for the first half of the film (replaced by the rolling English countryside for the second), A Room with a View makes for the perfect Valentine’s Day escape .
In 1936, American ornithologist James Bond (1900–1989) published the definitive taxonomy Birds of the West Indies. Ian Fleming, an active bird-watcher living in Jamaica, appropriated the author's name for his novel's lead character. This appropriation was the first in a series of substitutions and replacements that would become central to the construction of the Bond narrative. Uniting Bond the ornithologist with 007, Taryn Simon uses the title and format of the ornithologist’s taxonomy for her work.
