James Bond

Stan

In 1962, Dr No, star­ring that hunk Sean Con­nery as Bri­tish agent 007, started a James Bond craze that cap­ti­vated cin­ema au­di­ences around the world. The 24 films have reaped a box-of­fice in­come of more than US$11 bil­lion. Pig­ging out on the whole col­lec­tion in one go might be overkill, but watch­ing the su­per spy evolve over 53 years — with ac­tors such as Roger Moore and Pierce Bros­nan play­ing Bond — is fas­ci­nat­ing. The latest Bond film, Spec­tre, star­ring Daniel Craig, is due out soon. One won­ders what au­thor Ian Flem­ing would have made of his hero’s longevity.
