James Bond began his long and successful film career in 1962 with the hit film Dr. No. That's 43 years of killing villains, drinking martinis and bedding attractive women. Even with all this mileage, he's still bouncing from one exotic location to another with the same signature style.

There have been 23 films with the 24th one called S.P.E.C.T.R.E. due out on November 6th. Daniel Craig is the fifth actor to play bond and there are rumors this next one is to be his last and the search for the next 007 has already begun. Whoever fills Bond's tuxedo next time around, we can only hope the next batch of films live up to the tradition of exciting escapism that fans have enjoyed for more than two generations. As a Bond fan, you're familiar with the characters, plots and gadgets that have made the super spy a movie icon, but that doesn't mean you know everything about Bond... James Bond.

Ian Fleming seemingly killed off 007 in the novel You Only Live Twice. Along with his death came am obituary in which family details are revealed. His father was a Scottish weapons manufacturer and his mother was Swiss. Both parents died when James was a boy. At seventeen, he enlisted in the Royal Navy and was later recruited into the intelligence service. We also learn the Bond family motto: The World is Not Enough.
