MOVIE PREVIEW DANIEL CRAIG IS MAD AS HELL. The actor is shooting an intricately choreographed action sequence for his fifth James Bond movie, the Cary Joji Fukunaga-directed No Time to Die (out April 10) at Britain’s famed Pinewood Studios. This set piece takes place at a hotel in Havana where the MI6 agent and Paloma (Ana de Armas), a CIA agent, are battling members of the sinister organization SPECTRE. Craig must catch a gun flung into the air by an injured SPECTRE henchman; embrace the also-armed de Armas; pretend to shoot the gun; circle around with his costar; fake-fire the weapon again; and finally disengage from the actress so their characters can shelter behind a pair of pillars. To an onlooker all of this looks spectacularly difficult, but it is clear that the…

THE CHARACTER OF JAMES BOND ARRIVED FULLY FORMED IN IAN Fleming’s first 007 novel, 1953’s Casino Royale. The author had conjured the license-to-kill hero from the shadowy secret agents and soldier-of-fortune commandos he’d crossed paths with while working for British Naval Intelligence during World War II. On the page, Fleming’s Bond was described as being 6 ft. tall, weighing 168 lbs. and in his mid- to late 30s. He had a “cruel” mouth, a 3-in.-long vertical scar on his right cheek and short black hair—a comma of which fell across his forehead. He also drove a Bentley and smoked up to 70 custom-made cigarettes a day—a mix of Balkan and Turkish tobaccos produced by Morland of Grosvenor Street. Fleming’s Bond had a passion for cars, a refined palate and a…

12. THE SHOWER SCENE CASINO ROYALE (2006) Normally when you hear the words “James Bond shower scene,” your mind might drift to a sax solo and “Oh, James” sexy times. But Daniel Craig’s Bond isn’t that kind of Bond. Especially in his 007 debut, Casino Royale, where a hotel-room shower is a setting for something else—absolution for violence. Eva Green’s Vesper Lynd has just witnessed the killing that is Bond’s business, and she’s rattled. When 007 returns to his room, he finds her sitting in the shower fully clothed trying to wash away what she’s just seen. Bond feels her pain—maybe he even finally feels it himself—as he sits down next to her to comfort her. Bond has never been the most empathetic character, but here’s a great moment when Ian Fleming’s…

THE FIRST BOND AS FIRST IMPRESSIONS GO, IT REMAINS ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC IN the history of cinema. The year was 1962. The film, Dr. No, was the first of Ian Fleming’s bestselling novels to be adapted for the big screen. The world, including President John F. Kennedy, had already fallen in love with the suave license-to-kill spy on the page. He was the embodiment of Cold War cool, as lethal with the ladies as he was with his Walther PPK. The actor who had been chosen a year earlier to play him, however, was hardly an obvious choice. Rather he was an unknown 32-year-old bodybuilder turned actor from Edinburgh, the son of a factory worker and a cleaning woman. And from his very first moment onscreen, he would own…

behind the scenes

NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH Makeup artist Paul Rabiger applies gold foundation to Shirley Eaton for her role as doomed Bond Girl Jill Masterson in 1964’s Goldfinger. Despite an urban myth that Eaton died of asphyxiation during production, the actress survived the shoot. BLASTING OFF Most often James Bond can be found behind the wheel of a stylish Aston Martin, but sometimes he can be seen piloting a teeny-weeny flying machine (technically, an autogyro), as Sean Connery did for 1967’s You Only Live Twice. SET SECRETS Connery and Ursula Andress on the set of 1962’s Dr. No. What became of Andress’s now-iconic bikini? “Planet Hollywood bought it somewhere along the line,” says Barbara Broccoli, who started producing the films in 1987 with The Living Daylights. STARTING LINEUP From left: Roger Moore, Britt Ekland, director Guy Hamilton, producer Albert…

“THE SCENT AND SMOKE AND SWEAT of a casino are nauseating at three in the morning. …” Those were the first words that a 43-year-old former Naval Intelligence officer tapped out on his Royal portable typewriter at his winter home in Jamaica in February 1952. The author’s name was Ian Lancaster Fleming. And despite a successful career as a Fleet Street journalist, those evocative words would announce the birth of a literary hero who remains as alive today as he was on that afternoon 68 years ago. Fleming’s debut novel was Casino Royale. It would mark the first in what would become a string of adventures about a secret agent that would not only capture the world’s imagination but also change Fleming’s life. The story came effortlessly to him, perhaps because its…
