The world’s most famous secret agent is turning 50 – the James Bond film franchise is marking five decades since the October 5, 1962 release of Dr. No, the first movie of the series produced by London’s Eon studio.
Twenty-two movies and countless shaken-not-stirred martinis later, moviegoers are trying to sum up -- and rank -- the exploits of those who have portrayed Her Majesty’s best spy over the years.
Worldcrunch avoided the temptation to rank the best sex scenes, car chases or quotes - and chose instead to crunch each of the six actors down to a single adjective.
And James, don't ever forget, the English teachers love you too...
SEAN CONNERY – unforgettable
GEORGE LAZENBY – forgettable
Roger Moore - indefatigable
TIMOTHY DALTON - inscrutable
PIERCE BROSNAN - unmussable
DANIEL CRAIG – unbelievable (for his believability!)
