I’m looking for a very old colour film:

The film follows the life of a single person who gets kicked out of a private school, goes into British intelligence and revolutionizes the intelligence agency during World War II, using hookers to gather intel on Germans, etc.

The movie continues, I believe, into the Cold War era, and ends when a bomb goes off killing his wife while he was the intended.

I believe the movie you're looking for is this:

Spymaker: The Secret Life of Ian Fleming (1990)

It's a mostly fictional (read highly imaginative) account of the life of the Bond author :-)

Here's the trailer

And here's a page with an exhaustive summary and lots of pics.

Warning: There's some nudity among those screenshots!
