Our topic was to write about an event from the 1960’s. We have picked the very first James Bond film being released which has lead to many more films that are still being produced today.
The first James Bond movie was made in 1962 starring Sean Connery. The title of the film is called Dr. No, it was directed by Terrence Young and was produced by Harry Saltzman. it was releasd on October 6th1962. The genre is action, adventure and crime. It is rated a PG and is approximately 110 minutes long.
In Dr. No, James Bond is sent to Jamaica to investigate another federal agents disapperance which leads him to the underground base of Dr. Julius No. Who wants to plot an American manned launch with a radio beam destroying it.
Dr. No had a low budget of 1 million U.S dollars but was a financial success and is rated 7.3 out of 10 stars on IMDB. The movie starrs Sean Connery, Ursula Andress, Joseph Wiseman, Jack Lord and John Kiltzmiller.The first of Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels was not Dr. No which was written in 1958. The first of Fleming’s novels was actually Casino Royale which was earlier released in 1967 as a later film but Dr no makes a few references to the books that were earlier written.
This has led to many more James Bond Movies such as :-
