On this day in 1962 “Dr.No” the first James Bond movie was released. Sean Connery was the first “James Bond” and in my opinion and in the opinion of many, he was the best one. There have now been 22 James Bond movies with another one on the way.
The producers of “Dr.No’ originally sought Cary Grant for the role but he would only commit to one film. David Niven was also considered. Sean Connery would do 5ive Bond films. The Bond films have grossed over $5 billion.
