James Bond 007:

The fictional British Secret Service agent has also been adapted for television, radio, comic strip and video game formats as well as being used in the longest continually running and the second-highest grossing film franchise to date, which started in 1962 with Dr. No, starring Sean Connery as Bond. As of 2012, there have been twenty three films in the Eon Productions series. The most recent Bond film, Skyfall, stars Daniel Craig in his third portrayal of Bond: he is the sixth actor to play Bond in the Eon series. There have also been two independent productions of Bond films, Casino Royale, a 1967 spoof, and Never Say Never Again, a 1983 remake of an earlier Eon-produced film, Thunderball.

As the central figure for his works, Ian Fleming created the fictional character of James Bond, an intelligence officer in the Secret Intelligence Service, commonly known as MI6. Bond was also known by his code number, 007, and was a Royal Naval Reserve Commander.

The films are renowned for a number of features, including the musical accompaniment, with the theme songs to the films having picked up Academy Award nominations on several occasions. Other important elements which run through most of the films include Bond's cars, his guns and the gadgets he is supplied with by Q Branch.

Fleming took the name for his character from that of the American ornithologist James Bond, a Caribbean bird expert and author of the definitive field guide Birds of the West Indies; Fleming, a keen birdwatcher himself, had a copy of Bond's guide and he later explained to the ornithologist's wife that "It struck me that this brief, unromantic, Anglo-Saxon and yet very masculine name was just what I needed, and so a second James Bond was born".

Fleming based his fictional creation on a number of individuals he came across during his time in the Naval Intelligence Division during World War II, admitting that Bond "was a compound of all the secret agents and commando types I met during the war". Among those types were his brother, Peter, who had been involved in behind the lines operations in Norway and Greece during the war. Aside from Fleming's brother, a number of others also provided some aspects of Bond's make up, including Conrad O'Brien-ffrench, Patrick Dalzel-Job and Bill "Biffy" Dunderdale.




Ian Lancaster Fleming : Author of James Bond Series


Ian Lancaster Fleming (28 May 1908 – 12 August 1964): was an English author, journalist and naval intelligence officer, best known for his James Bond series of spy novels. Fleming came from a wealthy family connected to the merchant bank Robert Fleming & Co., and his father was the Member of Parliament for Henley from 1910 until his death on the Western Front in 1917. Educated at Eton, Sandhurst and the universities of Munich and Geneva, Fleming moved through a number of jobs before he started writing.


First Original Drawing of James Bond




While working in British naval intelligence during the Second World War, Fleming was involved in the planning stages of Operation Mincemeat and Operation Golden Eye. He was also involved in the planning and oversight of two intelligence units, 30 Assault Unit and T-Force. His wartime service and his career as a journalist provided much of the background, detail and depth of the James Bond novels.

Fleming wrote his first Bond novel, Casino Royale, in 1952. It was a success, with three print runs being commissioned to cope with the demand. Eleven Bond novels and two short-story collections followed between 1953 and 1966. The novels revolved around James Bond, an officer in the Secret Intelligence Service, commonly known as MI6. Bond was also known by his code number, 007, and was a commander in the Royal Naval Reserve. The Bond stories rank among the best-selling series of fictional books of all time, having sold over 100 million copies worldwide. Fleming also wrote the children's story Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang and two works of non-fiction. In 2008, The Times ranked Fleming fourteenth on its list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945".

He was married to Ann Charteris, who was divorced from the second Viscount Rothermere as a result of her affair with Fleming. Fleming and Charteris had a son, Caspar. Fleming was a heavy smoker and drinker who suffered from heart disease; he died in 1964, aged 56, from a heart attack. Two of his James Bond books were published posthumously, and a further five authors have since produced Bond novels. Fleming's creation has appeared in film twenty-four times, portrayed by seven actors.

James Bond Villains:


 

Le Chiffre's



The James Bond novels and films are notable for their memorably despicable villains and henchmen. From Le Chiffre's encounter with Bond in the original Casino Royale novel in 1953 to Dominic Greene's attempt to gain a monopoly over Bolivia's natural resources in the 2008 film, Quantum of Solace, Bond's foes have been one of the most important reasons for the book and film series' continued popularity.

With his creepy eye, sly demeanour, and--as if anyone could forget--his comical torture scene, Le Chiffre is the perfect place to start this article, and well deserving of 10th place. Le Chiffre was played by Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen, who reprised the role in the 2008 first-person shooter Quantum of Solace, providing his voice and likeliness for the character. 



Nick Nack




From a mini-gun and peanuts, to suitcases and bottles of wine, there is no shortage of entertainment with Nick Nack around. It is also to his credit that he was the inspiration behind Mini-Me in the Austin Powers films. Nick Nack was played by French actor Herve Villechaize, who would go on to play the role of Tattoo in the 




Jaws




Jaws is the quintessential bigger than life bad guy, and without doubt the most well known of the Bond villains. Introduced in The Spy who Loved Me, 7 foot tall Richard Kiel brought to life the steel giant, lending the film a unique charm. He proved so popular that the producers brought him back for the next film, Moonraker.




Ernst Stavro Blofeld




No matter how iconic Goldfinger is, there is no dispute that the ultimate villain in the series is in fact Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the notorious leader of SPECTRE.

Not only did he have the most appearances of all the villains in the series, he also had a notable presence in the novels, something that I think deserves recognition. He was an integral part of the Blofeld trilogy of novels Thunderball, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, and You Only Live Twice, which are probably my favourite three novels in the series.



3D Picture of James Bond and His Girl .Created by Me (Manash Kundu)





Bond Girls Series One




James Bond Girls:


The phrase 'Bond girl' conjures up so many striking images from Ursula Andress emerging from the sea in a bikini, Shirley Eaton naked covered in gold paint, and Honor Blackman's famous introduction. These are but a few of delights Bond girls have given the series over the years.

While it's a prerequisite that a Bond girl does have to be gorgeous and look absolutely stunning usually wearing as little as possible, this does not make the girls bimbos. Occasionally this has been true in a number of films, but this is because the character is limited in depth and scope giving the impression the actress is like the character she plays. The Bond girls often play highly intelligent roles as villains, other agents and professionals who frequently could play the role of James Bond just as well, if not sometimes better than Bond himself.



Bond Girls SeriesTwo




3D Picture of James Bond and His Girl .Created by Me (Manash Kundu)




While the essence of Bond remains the same, the gadgets, villains and adventures, even the actor playing James Bond has had to change to keep up with the uncertain times ahead. This is true also for the bond girls. The Bond girls have constantly been changing becoming distinctly more complex and enjoying a greater freedom and scope with ranging roles in the films. As long as there is James Bond 007, there will always be Bond girls. These girls will be eternal members of an elite club that hold the title of 'Bond girl' whether it be past, present or future.
