Did you see it too? Perhaps you missed it? But if you’re yet to watch the twenty-fourth James Bond film, featuring Daniel Craig as the lead (or due a second viewing), then keep your eyes peeled.
Within the first section of Spectre we see the iconic character Miss Moneypenny (played by Naomie Harris in this feature) hand a black box to Bond, stating it contains the remains from Skyfall (his previous adventure).
We later see Bond sat on his sofa, looking through said box of remains. Within the contents, a particularly familiar envelope is shown – a C4 Manilla String & Washer Envelope. This envelope contains items key to the storyline of Spectre.
In a film of such magnitude, you can imagine the attention to details involved in every single item on screen. The String & Washer Envelope was chosen, no doubt, for it’s stylish and unique appearance (it’s one of our favourites too!). Although not quite on the scale of the spectacular Aston Martin car featured in Spectre, it is still one of the props within in this big budget film and a fabulous one too, we think.
It’s not the first time the Manilla String & Washer envelope has made the big time either. For those of you who watched the 50 Shades of Grey movie earlier this year (you filthy lot), you may recall the scene where the lead character, Christian Grey, hands Anastasia her ‘contract’. He too uses a C4 Manilla String & Washer Envelope.
If it’s good enough for the likes of 007 and Christian Grey, they are most definitely good enough for us. It would seem that C4 Manilla String & Washer Envelopes are the choice of Hollywood!
