James Bond (or 007) is a fictional British MI6 secret agent created by writer Ian Fleming. Beginning in 1952, Fleming wrote 12 James Bond novels and two collections of short stories until his death in 1964. Subsequent James Bond novels have been written by many writers, including Kingsley Amis. These movies were inspired by North by Northwest (1959), as masterfully directed by Alfred Hitchcock.

James Bond is best known from the feature-length movies, and every year from 1962-1964 the top grossing movie was a James Bond film.[1] Dr. No was the first of the James Bond film series produced by EON Productions and ranked #1 that year in revenue; it was an adaptation of Ian Fleming's sixth James Bond novel. James Bond films have always been somewhat epic in scope, featuring exotic locations, fast cars, beautiful women and elaborate stunts. Bond is also known for his heavy drinking and smoking, along with sexual encounters (Fleming himself was a heavy smoker, leading to his early death from heart disease). James Bond had many adversaries, including members of the Italian and Russian Mafias, Japanese Yakuza, Chinese Triad, Latin American drug cartels, and North Korean mobsters, or even corrupt spies, mad scientists and terrorist organizations. The most recent Bond film was No Time to Die (2021).

The current James Bond is Daniel Craig, who has taken the role back towards the more rugged character that Connery and Dalton brought to the screen, as opposed to the portrayal by Pierce Brosnan.


Due to a copyright dispute over Thunderball, in 1983 another studio did a movie with the same plot titled Never Say Never Again, starring Connery.
