That depends on the source According to the wiki, Bond is the only 007 in Ian Fleming's Bond stories: James Bond is the only agent 007. In the novel You Only Live Twice, Bond was transferred into another branch and given the number 7777, suggesting there was no active agent 007 in that time; he is later reinstated as 007 in the novel The Man with the ...

I wonder if any woman has ever pressed charges on him (via HR or legal justice), or threatened to do, or even implied. It could be in any movie and a book backup could be accepted too. Not really The closest the movies come to it is M describing Bond as.... “a sexist, misogynist dinosaur, a relic of the Cold War.” M to Bond (Pierce Brosnan) in ...

The spy designation 007 dates back to well before the time of Ian Fleming.

The song you're talking about is the 007 Theme. I couldn't find an explicit answer but I would say it has to do with John Glen taking over as director. He changed the direction of Bond movies away from a upbeat camp action style (like the old Batman series) towards a more serious drama. The comedy factor which this track embodied was dialed down. As part of ...

Alec Trevelyan played agent 006 in Goldeneye, which clearly implies the numbers are sequential and incremental. So its reasonable to assume that there are have been least 6 other double-0 agents and potentially more afterward.

GPS is only one of several methods used by the Royal Navy and the British military in general to determine location, and military personnel are trained not to rely solely on GPS. Ships, in particular, as well as vehicles, also make use of inertial navigation systems. These are not as accurate as GPS, and need to be recalibrated fairly frequently, but if ...

Most of the initial James Bond movies were written, filmed, and distributed to the theaters during a time in our (social) history when men were often extremely disparaging to women. The very women who spent WWII roofing new homes were told they weren't capable of doing work like that after the war ended. Suddenly restricted to (Secretarial, Clerical, Nursing ...

It's not about something that only he and M knew , it's about the place and the situation that they were in. Silva hated the whole institution of MI6 of which M was the Head. His hatred for M was much more as M was a mother-like figure to him. Later he was sacrificed by his organisation for the exchange of six prisoners in China and he held M to be ...
