James Bond is the typical gentleman agent, a British servant of MI6 who is forever chasing enemies of the Secret Service. It all started in 1962 with Dr. No, when Bond had to protect an American space launch from a scheming villain. Since then, Bond has uncovered many plots and killed numerous agents - and he's met a few women along the way as well. The release of Skyfall marks the 50th anniversary of the blockbuster series.
