EVERYTHING YOU'LL EVER WANT TO KNOW ABOUT JAMES BOND With SPECTRE just around the corner, wanted to look back on one of the world's most famous movie characters, and his legacy. It's easy to forget, but important to remember that James Bond's movies are based on lan Fleming's influential books This infographic looks at the fabric of what makes a Bond movie, from leading ladies, to villains and everything in between. Be sure to share with any bond fans THE JAMES BOND FILM FRANCHISE HAS MADE OVER £6,000,000,000,000 The latest book, Trigger Mortis by Anthony Horrowitz, contains previously unpublished material written by Fleming for an unfilmed television series, Murder on Wheels. The book title was revealed on 28 May 2015 to coincide with Fleming's 107th birthday THE DEADLIEST BOND FILMS THE MOST DEATHS IN A THE MOST KILLS BY SINGLE BOND FILM BOND IN A SINGLE FILM PIERCE BROSNAN (GOLDEN EYE) 47 KILLS YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE 197 DEATHS James Bond was a commander in the Royal Navy before becoming a super spy. When faking his death in You Only Live Twice he was ceremoniously buried at sea Bond's weapon of choice is the Beretta M 1934 (perhaps from his service in the Royal Navy) but was forced to use the Walther PPK in Dr. No THE SPY WHO LOVED ME THE NUMBER OF WOMEN THE MOST WOMEN BEDDED BOND HAS SLEPT WITH BY A SINGLE BOND 19 WOMEN ROGER MOORE (ACROSS 7 FILMS) 55 WOMEN "You don't need the gun" Xenia Onatopp (ACROSS 23 FILMS) "That depends on your definition of safe sex" James Bond MAKING SENSE OF ALL THE CHAOS There is much contention as to the true order of Bond movies.

Goldfinger 04. Moonraker 06. The Man 08. From Russia 05. Live and 07. Dr. No with the With Love Let Die Golden Gun 09. Thunderball 10. On Her Majesty's Secret 11. You Only 12.

BAGPIPE FLAMETHROWER THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH Although James never gets to use this gadget personally, it would have been interesting to see this being used outside of testing ANTI-SHARK PELLET LIVE AND LET DIE As with many great Bond gadgets, they are often implemented in a way not originally intended by Q. Roger Moore utilises the device to make sure Mr. Big goes out in a big way CIGARETTE & TOOTHPASTE C4 LICENCE TO KILL The best gadgets are the ones disguised like everyday objects. "Dentonite' toothpaste is very deadly and does not help eliminate plaque but it may improve your breath BROOM RADIO LICENSE TO KILL One of the rare times we get to see Q operating in the field. Putting safety first and going deep undercover he hides his radio in his broom SEAGULL SNORKEL SUIT GOLDFINGER What better way to disguise your tactical espionage action than with a snorkel disguised as a seagull? It must also be incredibly water tight, as Connery reveals a crisp white tuxedo underneath BOOM BOX THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS A side project of Q's for the Americans. What better way to conceal a rocket launcher than in an oversized 80's radio? "It's called a ghetto blaster!", beams Desmond Llewelyn CROCODILE SUBMARINE OCTOPUSSY Using a mechanical crocodile suit, Bond aquatically infiltrates a tropical island. Over engineering a solution to a problem? Maybe. Something we'd see in a modern Bond film? Sadly, probably not WE'VE BEEN EXPECTING YOU, MR.

When she plays her role in Spectre she will be four years older than James bond A third of all girls who sleep with Bond end up facing their demise soon after. The most dangerous Bond is Daniel Craig - every girl who slept with him has ended up dead THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN: BOOKS VS. MOVIES lan Fleming wrote 12 James Bond novels and 9 short stories published in two collections. Initially the Eon series of films were fairly straight adaptations of the novels but over tim they tended to deviate more and more. Here's a look at some of the faithful and less faithful adaptions.. FAITHFUL ADAPTATIONS DR NO FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE GOLDFINGER THUNDERBALL LESS FAITHFUL ADAPTATIONS YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE Retains only the Japanese setting and a few character names from the lan Fleming novel published 1964 ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE Fairly faithful adaptation of the lan Fleming novel published 1963, to the point where it ignores the events of the previous film DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER Some characters and situations from the 1956 Fleming novel are incorporated but much is new LIVE AND LET DIE Takes only some character names and settings from the 1954 Fleming novel THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN Takes only some details of the main villain from the 1965 Fleming novel THE SPY WHO LOVED ME As per lan Fleming's explicit instructions, takes almost nothing from the 1962 Fleming novel MOONRAKER Takes only the name of the villain and the theme of space travel from the 1955 Fleming novel FOR YOUR EYES ONLY Takes a few character names from the 1960 Fleming short story. Alsa includes material from the Live and Let Die novel and Risico, the 1960 short story OCTOPUSSY Takes only the title character's back-story from the 1966 Fleming short story but also includes material from the Property of a Lady short story (also 1966) Helping you choose your next book lulullıll |++| < вx
