"I'll do anything for a woman with a knife."
The first movie in Eon Productions' James Bond series not named after a book by creator Ian Fleming, today's feature, Licence to Kill — originally titled Licence Revoked — was also the first to be shot completely outside of the United Kingdom and the last to star Timothy Dalton as Bond. Dalton choose to step away from the role after only two movies due to the protracted legal battle over the rights to the character that put the franchise on hiatus from 1989 to 1995.
One of the darker and more personal James Bond movies, Licence to Kill finds Bond (Dalton) giving up his "007" designation and his "license to kill" in favor of pursuing a vendetta against Franz Sanchez (Robert Davi), a Latin American drug lord responsible for the rape and murder of the wife of his friend, CIA Agent Felix Leiter (David Hedison). Knowing full well what Bond is capable of, MI6 dispatches agents to bring him in by any means necessary. Pursued by his former colleagues and surrounded by his enemies, Bond embarks on a suicide mission to infiltrate Sanchez's organization and assassinate him, licensed or not.

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.

"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.
