“I guess it’s, er… a farewell to arms.”

James Bond (Timothy Dalton)

M (Robert Brown) is not very happy, James Bond has not gone on his mission to Istanbul as planned. Instead, Agent 007 prefers to carry out his personal vendetta against Felix Leiter’s (David Hedison) assailants who also killed his wife the day after their wedding.

James Bond doesn’t shy away from his boss, preferring to tender his resignation in order to continue to avenge Leiter. M takes away his license to kill and asks him for his gun.

007 then gets into it with his colleagues and runs off to get back to his business.


When Bond looks like he is about to hand over his gun, he says the line “I guess it’s, er… a farewell to arms.”. This is the title of Ernest Hemingway’s third novel, published in 1929.

The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum

Built in 1851, this Key West home is famous for being Ernest Hemingway’s residence from 1931.

Inside, the furniture and various decorative objects belonged to Hemingway and his family. The author bought the house for $8,000.

The cats that still inhabit the place are descendants of those owned by the novelist.

In 1940, Hemingway left Key West for Cuba, while his wife, Pauline, and his two children, Patrick and Gregory, stayed behind.

When Ernest Hemingway died in 1961, his sons immediately sold the house at auction for $80,000.

Today it is possible to visit the house, which is a National Historic Landmark, a Literary Landmark, and registered with the Library of Congress as an American Historic Building.
