Throughout the years, the dapper secret agent may have been played by six different actors, but James Bond has always maintained his swagger. Based on the British secret agent birthed in print by author Ian Fleming, the first Bond film, Dr. No, emerged in 1962 with the Scottish sweet talker Sean Connery at the helm. Throughout the franchise’s nearly 40-year history, the explosions have gotten bigger and the locations more exotic, but his mission remains the same: fight off evil, save the world, kiss the girl.
