"You see, Mr Bond, like all great artists I want to create one indisputable masterpiece: the death of 007."
Roger Moore's second outing as Jams Bond showed off the character's marksmanship skills and prowess as a martial artist. AS was often the case for Bond during the 1970s, adjustments were made for Bond to compete against the movie trends of the day, with 1974's The Man With the Golden Gun attempting to take advantage of the martial arts genre that was surging in popularity.
Based on Fleming's ninth novel in the James Bond series, The Man With the Golden Gun takes Bond to the Far East to track down an assassin named Francisco Scaramanga (Christopher Lee). Aiding Bond in his mission is Louisiana Sheriff J.W. Pepper (Clifton James, reprising his role from 1973's Live and Let Die) and Bond's assistant, Mary Goodnight (Britt Ekland). It may seem strange to think of Bond having an assistant, but the character of Goodnight was featured in several of Ian Fleming's novels, but made her sole screen appearance in The Man With the Golden Gun. Speaking of assistants, The Man With the Golden Gun has one of the more memorable Bond henchman in Nick Nack (Herve Villechaize), a character who would later help inspire the satirical version of Mini-Me from the Austin Powers movies.the man with the golden gun

Ian Fleming wrote his first James Bond novel in 1952, and finished 11 novels total before his death in 1964. The legacy of Fleming's creation lives on in the movies, the 23rd of which, Skyfall, has earned over a billion dollars in worldwide box office.

There's no doubt that James Bond is one of cinema's most enduring heroes. Without him, the fictional world would have been destroyed several times over. However, it isn't often that we think about the illegality and collateral damage left in the wake of Bond's methods and "license to kill."
Though the super spy franchise has been on the silver screen for more than half a century, it's clear that James Bond is still going strong. The character's latest installment, Skyfall, has earned more than $1 billion in worldwide box office. To celebrate Bond and his 50 years in movies, Reelz is airing sixteen Bond classics throughout February. Before the 007 extravaganza begins, we thought we'd take the time to go over the list of crimes committed by Bond over the course of his long career. Sure, everything Bond does is "for Queen and country," but, apparently, that means turning a blind eye to a lot of sins. The following is an excerpt of Interpol's report on Britain's most dangerous spy.celebrating 50 years of bond

"Just a drink. A martini, shaken, not stirred."
This is a big year for James Bond. Ian Fleming's iconic British spy celebrated 50 years as a motion picture hero on Oct. 5th, the golden anniversary of the debut of Dr. No in theaters, and the 23rd James Bond movie, Skyfall, will premiere in just one week in the U.K. (we Yanks have to wait until Nov. 9th). If you're a movie buff, chances are you've seen your fair share of James Bond movies over the years and you likely have your preference of Bond actors, whether Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, or the latest, Daniel Craig. But, just as 007 is superior to the other 00s in the service of Her Majesty, not all James Bond movies are created equal. Put on your tux, down a martini and help us sort through 50 years of James Bond movies to select the best of the best.
