History of James Bond Day
Few people know that James Bond didn’t get his start in films, but instead in a series of book by Author Ian Fleming in 1953. In 1962 this wildly popular series of books was brought to the silver screen in “Dr. NO” and in that one instance, James Bond was brought to life for people everywhere. Men dreamed of living a life of danger, women swooned at the thought of the mysterious stranger, and everyone spent their days fantasizing about what it would mean to be a secret agent man.
50 years later it was decided that the best way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his arrival on the silver screen was commemorated a day dedicated to secret agents everywhere. Thus was born James Bond Day. Throughout the ages, some of the biggest names of stage and screen have portrayed this iconic character, including Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, and the best James Bond ever (in our opinion) Sean Connery. Throughout the decades this movie has brought us fast cars, beautiful women, and cackling villains that have tried to take down England, and the world. In every case there was one man, this 007, that would take them down and save the day.
