Watching DR NO after all these years the first thing to strike me is howgritty it all is . The villains are cruel and not below shooting unarmedwomen in the back so who better to take them on than an equally cold heartedkiller namely James Bond 007 . Bond must have shocked cinema audiences inthe 1960s , no one described as a good guy in pre Bond cinema ever shot oneof the bad guys in the back no matter what the provocation . John Waynedidn`t do it and neither did Errol Flynn but here we see Sean Connery doingit even though he didn`t have to .
And I`m making no distinction between Sean Connery and the character heplays , James Bond is Sean Connery . Try saying " James Bond " out loud .Done it ? Notice the slightly slurred Scottish brogue . Try it again . Seeit`s impossible not to say " Bond. Jamesh Bond " Let`s not forget Connerymade Bond a cultural icon and Connery was at one point the world`s mostfamous and highest paid movie star .Not bad for a man who started off lifein an Edinburgh tenement and whose first paid job was as a milk boy
One final thing I noticed about DR N0 is how tightly written and paced itis. Plot point is followed by murder attempt followed by plot point followedby murder attempt followed by plot point. At no time does any of this seemforced and at no time do we see 15-20 minutes padded out with a ridculousstunt sequence . If only all Bond films were as good as this or GOLDFINGER

While it may appear tame by the standards of the later productions, it's an entertaining look back in movie history at a project that developed into a worldwide phenomenon.
James Bond (007) is Britain's top agent and is on an exciting mission, to solve the mysterious murder of a fellow agent. The task sends him to Jamacia, where he joins forces with Quarrel and a loyal CIA agent, Felix Leiter. While dodging tarantulas, "fire breathing dragons" and a trio of assassins, known as the three blind mice. Bond meets up with the beautiful Honey Ryder and goes face to face with the evil Dr. No.
