Released in 1962, this first James Bond movie remains one of the best, and serves as an entertaining reminder that the Bond series began (in keeping with Ian Fleming's novels) with a surprising lack of gadgetry and big-budget fireworks. Sean Connery was just 32 years old when he won the role of Agent 007. In his first adventure James Bond is called to Jamaica where a colleague and secretary have been mysteriously killed. With an American CIA agent (Jack Lord, pre-Hawaii Five-O), they discover that the nefarious Dr. No (Joseph Wiseman) is scheming to blackmail the U.S. government with a device capable of deflecting and destroying U.S. rockets launched from Cape Canaveral. Of course, Bond takes time off from his exploits to enjoy the company of a few gorgeous women, including the bikini-clad Ursula Andress. She gloriously kicks off the long-standing tradition of Bond women who know how to please their favorite secret agent. A sexist anachronism? Maybe, but this is Bond at his purest, kicking off a series of movies that shows no sign of slowing down. --Jeff Shannon

1962 Rolex Submariner from first 007 film,
Ever since I was a young boy I have always been enamored by fine watches.  So, ever since I was a kid, one of the alluring elements of Bond movies for me was to observe which types of watches were being used, especially by Bond.  As I matured I found that I share many of Bond’s predilections for enjoying the “finest” things life has to offer.  I think a fine watch is part of the character makeup for depicting Bond as a suave and “smooth operator.”  …

Dr. NO was made only for a million dollars back in the day of 62.  It was cast well, produced well and stayed very close to the original book, believe it or not even had some of the exact same lines!  It became a hit, more movies were made and the rest was history.      The first of the James Bond movies but the 6th in the series of books has Bond back on duty and taking on a mission to Jamaica to discover the dissapearance of another MI6 operative who was keeping an …

First Bond is often the prototype followed for the series. Down to earth for the most part but it does take it's time in places.

The legend begins here as British super-agent James Bond (007) emerges for the first time. This film also introduces audiences to the smooth talking charm of Sean Connery who is able to turn the character into icon in his first quote: "Bond, James Bond." Who could have guessed back in the day that this character would become the star of the longest running film series of all time?     Now, Dr. No is a good Bond film, but it isn't the best, as it is soon surpassed by films such …

In watching this movie, the first in the James Bond sequene, once again, you can see how much Sean Connery grew into the Bond character. When he asks questions, there is a bit of an edge to his manner of delivery, Connery has not yet perfected the suave demeanor that made him so popular. Furthermore, after Bond and Honey Ryder are captured by Dr. No, Bond admits that he is scared, something not quite in keeping with his fearless approach.    Nevertheless, you can see why Connery will always …
