An Alternative Reality In A Shop Window
an actor called George Lazenby played James Bond in the one Bond film that has an alpine setting;
the window of a second hand bookshop in Morecambe displays a juvenile adventure novel called Alpine Adventure by George Lazenby!
Everything has been inverted. Thus:
not a film but a book;
not an actor but an author called George Lazenby;
not only an alpine setting but even an "Alpine" title.
None of this affects the characters. They do not know whether they are in a film or book, they do not know the title and none of them is called George Lazenby! But they are different characters and he is the same George Lazenby! First he acted; then he authed. And another minor (very minor) coincidence is that a woman in the film says that she is from Morecambe Bay.
