50 Years of James Bond

“Bond, James Bond.” Who does not love those words? Even if you initially did not, fifty years ago when Sean Connery uttered it in 1962, it became three of the most immortal words in cinematic history. At some point, you also grew to love this iconic and dashing secret agent.

Six different actors have played James Bond over the last fifty years, which produced twenty-three films thus far.
