“The name is Bond, James Bond.”
With those simple words an icon was introduced to the world: James Bond, 007, the suave international man of mystery with a license to kill. It is estimated that since his first appearance in 1962’s Dr. No, over a quarter of the world’s population has seen at least one James Bond film (which makes sense for a series that has spanned half a century and soon-to-be 23 films). Created by the immensely talented Sir Ian Fleming for the page in 1953, the character was adapted to the screen through the efforts of Albert “Cubby” Broccoli and his producing partner Harry Saltzman in 1962, never looking back since.
