IMDb profile

The Living Daylights (1987) is the fifteenth film of the James Bond film series and the first film to star Timothy Dalton as fictional British secret agent James Bond. It is a loose adaptation of Ian Fleming's fourteenth and final James Bond novel Octopussy and the Living Daylights, and incorporates elements from the book's short story The Living Daylights. It was the last James Bond film to be adapted from an Ian Fleming story until 2006's Casino Royale. It is notable for being the first film to feature Caroline Bliss as Miss Moneypenny, who would later reprise the role in Licence to Kill, as well as the final Bond film to mark the appearances of recurring supporting characters Sir Frederick Gray and General Gogol. The Living Daylights is also the final Bond film to be rated PG in the United Kingdom and the United States. All of the following films would earn a PG-13 rating in the US, and either a 12 or 15 rating in the UK starting with the following film Licence to Kill.
