It’s hard to imagine a world without the James Bond films, which have been with us since Dr No hit the big screen in 1962.

The impact of Dr No on cinema audiences of the time was dramatic. There had never been anything like it before. It catapulted Sean Connery to fame and introduced us to an exciting and, for many, unimaginably sophisticated world.


It took James Bond from being a successful series of books to an unprecedented worldwide phenomenon, hitting its peak in the mid-1960s.

The actor may change. The style of each film reflects the time in which it was made. But more than 50 years later we still eagerly await each new instalment in the series.

Dr No (1962)

dr-no-poster-450x332 - The Bond Movies - Youtube Replay

Following the disappearance of the head of the local secret service station in Jamaica and his assistant, M send James Bond to investigate. Bond quickly teams up with the CIA’s Felix Leiter and with the help of the CIA man and his local hand, Quarrel, Bond follows up a series of leads.
His investigations point him towards Crab Key, home to the enigmatic Dr No, and he and Quarrel set sail at night to investigate. After arriving, Bond awakes to find a bikini-clad girl collecting shells on the beach.

It turns out that Honey Ryder also sailed overnight, but alerted by the sail on her dinghy, Dr No sends a motor patrol boat to deal with the trespassers. Disappearing into the mangrove swamp, the three come face to face with a march buggy armed with a flame-thrower dressed up to look like a dragon.

After seeing Quarrel being scorched to death, Bond and Honey are taken to Dr No’s base after surrendering, where the two are surprised to find they have been expected in what appears to be some kind of luxury clinic. After dinner with the Doctor, during which he reveals that he has been interfering with American missile tests on behalf of SPECTRE, Bond is taken to a cell.

Escaping though a ventilation shaft, Bond tracks Dr No down to his laboratory and kills him. While a chain of gigantic explosions begins to rock the complex all around, Bond rescues Honey, and they make their escape from the island in a boat.

Connery’s hard edge, flawless delivery of one liners, a simple plot and absence of gadgets all work in the film’s favour and with a freshness that has evaded the series since Goldfinger, Dr No remains one of the best Bond films.

Dr No is often overlooked, but it sets many of the elements in place for the later James Bond movies and Ursula Andress’ appearance on the beach is now an iconic screen moment. Although it features the James Bond Theme, one notable thing lacking is the “Bond sound”, first introduced by John Barry in From Russia With Love

In 1961 Albert R “Cubby” Broccoli found that Harry Saltzman had a six-month option to film the James Bond novels and tried to buy him out. But when Saltzman refused they teamed up instead and created Eon Productions to put 007 on the big screen.

Dr No remains a fairly faithful adaptation  of the novel but the screenwriters added a number of scenes. They also added Felix Leiter, who did not appear in the book. But while many of the classic Bond elements were introduced, the first Bond film lacks a John Barry score. Apart from the James Bond Theme the music is largely unmemorable.

When Dr No proved to be a hit Eon Productions quickly followed it up with From Russia With Love, considered by Fleming to be his best work. However, rather than the Cold War plot pitting the Russians and SMERSH against 007 the screenplay features SPECTRE play the Russians against MI6 in order to assassinate 007 and get hold of the Lektor code machine.

The second Bond film makes great use of the location work in Istanbul, as well as the scenes on board the Orient Express as Bond, Tania and Kerim flee with the Lektor. Bond’s claustrophobic fight with Red Grant, highlighted by Peter Hunt’s groundbreaking editing, has rarely been equalled in the series.

An assassin pulls a length of wire from his watch and silently approaches James Bond from behind. Looping the wire around Bond’s neck, the assassin pulls it tight and holds it there until Bond gasps his last breath.

From Russia With Love is the first James Bond film to feature the now obligatory pre-title sequence, and although the murdered man is immediately revealed to be wearing a mask of 007, the short sequence is atmospheric and full of suspense. Since James Bond does not appear until much later in the plot, this device must have been designed to introduce Sean Connery into the story much sooner than he would have otherwise done.

Differing only slightly (but vitally) from the Fleming story, From Russia With Love is probably the only Bond film not to have at its finale a huge exploding set. Instead of a 007-by-numbers world domination theme, the film concerns a plot by SPECTRE (SMERSH in the book) to assassinate Bond in compromising circumstances and at the same time obtain a Russian cipher machine in order to sell it back to the Russians.

From Russia With Love is the first film to feature the much loved Desmond Llewellyn (introduced by M as ‘The Equipment Officer’ from ‘Q-Branch’ and billed as Boothroyd in the credits) and follows the same structure as the book, with the beginning of the film devoted to planning the assassination, and although this makes the first half a little slow at times, the local colour provided by the locations and characters fleshes out the story to ultimately make it much more believable than most of the films.

This highlights one of the weaknesses of the film series from the 1970s onwards, when Fleming’s worldly sophistication was replaced almost entirely by a thin veneer of glamour and scenes like the gypsy camp, which is effectively used to provide local colour while driving the plot forward, have been replaced by the anonymity of the five star hotel and the needless action scene. With few gadgets, Bond has to rely upon his wits and during a gun flight at the gypsy camp he stands amid the confusion not knowing what to do, far from the decisive agent we see in most of the films.

By the time the story has progressed to the Orient Express the film is full of suspense and while locked in a sleeping compartment with SPECTRE assassin ‘Red’ Grant, Bond is force to fight to the death in a terrifyingly claustrophobic sequence accompanied by the rhythmic knock of the rails in the background.

At times some of the acting from supporting characters is a little weak, and whenever Kerim, the head of the Istanbul MI6 station, fires a gun he snatches at the trigger so that the whole weapon wobbles impossibly, but overall the cast play the roles well and unlike some of the series the film is coherent due to its reliance on Ian Fleming’s plot. With none of the over the top gadgets, plots and pyrotechnics that have become so closely associated with James Bond, From Russia With Love remains one of the best of the series.

Goldfinger (1964)

goldfinger-poster-450x382 - The Bond Movies - Youtube Replay

In many ways the quintessential James Bond movie, in introducing the gadget-packed Aston Martin DB5 Goldfinger began to shift the series away from Ian Fleming’s vision of James Bond. It also turned generations of boys that followed into avid collectors.

The film improves on the book substantially by making a small but important change to the villain’s scheme. It also features one of the most memorable Bond girls in the shape of Pussy Galore and a pre-title sequence to which few of the films that followed have even come close in equalling. Whether or not Goldfinger is the best film in the series is a moot point. Without a doubt though, it is the most iconic Bond film

James Bond is sent to investigate the smuggling operation of gold magnate Auric Goldfinger.

After first encountering him in Miami, Bond arranges a “chance” meeting at Goldfinger’s golf club, where they play a high stakes round for a gold bar during which Goldfinger and his henchman cheat.

Trailing the millionaire to Switzerland in his Aston Martin DB5, 007 finds out how his smuggling operation works; however, after hearing about Operation Grand Slam he is captured.

Sparing his life at the last minute, Bond awakes on Goldfinger’s private jet on the way to Kentucky where he owns a stud farm. Here he witnesses a meeting with a number of criminal gangs who have provided materials for to Goldfinger and overhears the details of Operation Grand Slam; to irradiate America’s gold supply at Fort Knox thereby increasing the value of his own gold and helping the Chinese.

James Bond must try and foil Operation Grand Slam as Goldfinger’s plan swings into action.

Goldfinger is perhaps the quintessential James Bond film, with the right balance of plot, girls, villain, henchman and, in the Aston Martin DB5, gadgets. It is also, notably, the only Bond film based on an Ian Fleming novel that improves on the original story.

Thunderball (1965)

thunderball-poster-450x339 - The Bond Movies - Youtube Replay

Where Goldfinger went big, Thunderball went bigger. Back came the DB5 for the pre-title sequence as well as a Bell-Textron jet pack in this story of SPECTRE holding the West to ransom after hijacking a Vulcan bomber loaded with two atomic bombs; again the series taps into the threat of vaporisation by nuclear weapons.

Filmed largely in The Bahamas, the underwater scenes are sometimes criticised for slowing the film down and making it difficult to follow, but it has a great John Barry score and Sean Connery is in fine form as 007.


When two atomic bombs are stolen by SPECTRE  countdown begins to locate them before time is up; if a ransom is not paid then the warheads will be used against western targets and all available agents are scrambled into action.

James Bond is sent to the Bahamas after spotting a link between pilot Francois Derval and his sister, Domino, who is in Nassau with her “guardian” Emilio Largo.

With Felix Leiter to assist him, Bond finds the Vulcan bomber on which the bombs were carried hidden on the sea bed; however, there is no trace of the bombs themselves which the atomic bombs were carried.

The title for the 25th James Bond film was released Tuesday, and it’s a great one.

The new film with Daniel Craig will be titled “No Time to Die.” The official title was tweeted out from the movie’s Twitter page.

You Only Live Twice (1967)

you-only-live-twice-poster-450x345 - The Bond Movies - Youtube Replay

After the success of Thunderball, Eon radically shifted the series in a new direction with You Only Live Twice, dropping Ian Fleming’s story completely and retaining the Japanese locations and the character names. Instead the producers brought in Roald Dahl to write the screenplay.

The film sees SPECTRE meddling in the space race between the United States and USSR going on at the time. It was released 18 months before Apollo 8 became the first manned spacecraft to orbit the Moon and a two full years before the Apollo 11 Moon landing.

With Sean Connery announcing the film as his last appearance as 007 the pressure was really on the producers; Sean Connery WAS James Bond. How could the series continue without him?
When an American spacecraft disappears from orbit the United states immediate suspects the Soviet Union. However, since the British tracked the craft to the Sea of Japan they decide to dispatch James Bond to Tokyo to investigate.

James Bond, assisted by Tiger Tanaka, as well as Bond girls Aki and Kissy, uncovers a plot by SPECTRE to start World War III by hijacking American and Russian spacecraft, while making it look like the work of the other side. 007 must prevent Blofeld’s plan before it is too late.

You Only Live Twice marks a turning point in the series, as it is the first James Bond film that was not based on an Ian Fleming story.

While Fleming’s novel of the same name is set in Japan and features Blofeld, little else remains apart from the characters Tiger Tanaka and Dikko Henderson – and while he is a colourful character in the book, Henderson is completely wasted in the film.

It is notable that the same basic story was reused in The Spy Who Love Me and slightly less obviously in Moonraker,both with Roger Moore.

You only live twice
Or so it seems
One life for yourself
And one for your dreams

You drift through the years
And life seems tame
'Til one dream appears
And Love is its name

And love is a stranger
Who'll beckon you on
Don't think of the danger
Or the stranger is gone

This dream is for you
So pay the price
Make one dream come true
You only live twice

And love is a stranger
Who'll beckon you on
Don't think of the danger
Or the stranger is gone

This dream is for you
So pay the price
Make one dream come true
You only live twice

Aston Martin Lagonda

Rapide E will be Aston Martin's first fully electric vehicle. The 612-horsepower car can reach a top speed of 155 mph and can go zero-to-60 mph in four seconds.

The $330,000 car has a range of around 200 miles and can be fully charged in three hours in ideal conditions.

Only 155 units of the Rapide E will be made available with deliveries starting in 2020. One of them may be driven by Daniel Craig in the next James Bond film, according to British media reports.
