In 1953, English author Ian Fleming published Casino Royale, the first of many thrilling tales featuring the instantly iconic British Secret Service spy James Bond. Also known as 007, a member of MI6 with a "license to kill", James Bond inhabited a world renowned for Bond girls, an endless stream of Vodka martinis “shaken, not stirred,” and a collection of clever gadgets. Nine years later, moviegoers would see Bond in living color in Dr. No, the first of more than two dozen Bond films to electrify the silver screen. The debate over which actor best personifies this legendary literary character continues on. While Sean Connery typically wins the most acclaim among Bond aficionados, each actor to play Bond-- George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig--brought his own style and personality to this larger than life role. The films, always highly anticipated, with their oft-quoted lines have become a worldwide phenomenon. The movies also bring to life a dizzying array of clever gadgets from MI6 Quartermaster “Q.” Bond Girls, from the sweet to the dangerous, have been played by such actress as Ursula Andress and Halle Berry. From Dr. No to Skyfall, the films follow the daring spy who is always “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.” The Bond materials in this exhibition are drawn from the personal collection of Mr. Paul Wynn.
