The new film of the 007 saga, Quantum of Solace, premieres this Friday and to "celebrate" I shall post an entry dedicated to the most famous secret agent of all time....Bond...James Bond.

Despite having appeared more than 45 years on film screens worldwide, these films' actors, actresses, villians, gadgets, clothes, and soundtracks still continue to fascinate thousands just like in 1962.
The first and perhaps the most remembered James Bond...Sean Connery sporting a white tuxedo in 1964's "Goldfinger". He's the only actor that portrayed 007 in several "official films" and the "not so official" remake of "Thunderball": "Never Say Never Again" in 1983.

George Lazenby was James Bond only once in 1969's "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". It's the only film where Bond marries his Bond girl: Countess Tracy Di Vicenzo, yet in the end she's killed by the evil Blofeld. This film is worth checking out for the clothes and the ski chase sequences. I think it was in this film when Bond began wearing more "modern" clothes, suitable for the era.

Roger Moore was the Bond of the 70s and most of the 80s. Shown here in 1985's "A View To A Kill" with the stunning Tanya Roberts.
And to wrap up this entry, the most famous of the Bond Girls: Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder in 1962's "Dr. No".
