EON’s 007

Following the deal brokered with Broccoli and Saltzman, filming of the first Bond film, Dr No, began on location in Jamaica in 1962 and the film was released in October that same year.  Starring Sean Connery as Agent 007 and Ursula Andress as Honey Rider, Dr No was a box office hit and sparked the longest-running film franchise in history.  Fleming lived to see the success of the second Bond film adaptation From Russia with Love and had input on the film Goldfinger, although he died before the film was released.
