My Name Is...

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

The first James Bond movie is still one of the best, and shortest, of the series. Many of the series hallmarks had yet to be established, but it's still plenty satisfying. It's based on Ian Fleming's sixth novel, published in 1958. Sean Connery stars as Agent 007, dispatched to Jamaica to investigate the death of a fellow agent.

There he meets the lovely Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress) in an unforgettable white bikini, as well as colleague Felix Leiter (Jack Lord); eventually he must face off against the title bad guy (Joseph Wiseman).

Lois Maxwell plays Miss Moneypenny, a role she would repeat all the way up to A View to a Kill (1987). Bernard Lee plays "M," and stayed in the part until 1979. Terence Young directed, his first of three Bond movies.
