I've looked, so far without success, but another episode of CLIMAX long thought lost, "Casino Royale," turned up several years ago.

This was the first screen version of a 007 novel. It starred Barry Nelson as an American CIA Agent named Jimmy Bond, partnered with a British Intelligence Agent named Leiter. I've never heard what Fleming thought of it.

So maybe there's hope for the CLIMAX version of "The Long Goodbye" as well.
