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 ...

Bond visited an enigmatic night-time laser show in the 1970s. This lightning show is currently still running. More info here and you can book through this website. There may be additional info, but unfortunately I don't know arabian langauge, I was just a tourist there.

This doesn't always happen. A lot of the time, the villain (or henchmen) are actively trying to kill Bond - they always fail, but the intent to kill is obvious. The theatrical execution attempts in the Bond films are indicative of the ego of the villain in question - they're an expression of power and control. Ultimately, of course, there's not enough of ...

James Bond has lots of skills, training, and education: languages, martial arts, marksmanship, spy tradecraft, etc. However, what is the first lucky number most people think of?:     7 Bond has been shot at thousands of times and never struck. He is incredibly lucky.

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. Horowitz's book (Trigger Mortis) is not a Fleming book, but it "draws inspiration from unpublished notes" and therefore has less "...

In the 1967 film, no explanation is offered by any of the SPECTRE agents as to how they are able to monitor their spacecraft closing in on the American vehicle in orbit, even though as the o/p correctly points out there is a live video feed displayed on a tv monitor screen in the SPECTRE control room showing it from a distant point-of-view that is clearly ...

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 ...
