Dr. No (1962, UK/US)

In Terence Young's first Bond film about British agent 007:

  • the trademark introduction of agent 007 James Bond's (Sean Connery) name across a casino's gaming room table to beautiful, defeated chemin de fer gambler Sylvia Trench (Eunice Gayson) in a red dress: "Bond, James Bond"
  • John Barry's distinctive theme music
  • Bond's typical conversation with his flirtatious boss' secretary Miss Moneypenny (Lois Maxwell): (Bond: "What gives?" Moneypenny: "Me - given an ounce of encouragement")
  • the scene of a giant hairy, venomous tarantula crawling up Bond's arm
  • the great entrance scene of a sexy, white bikini-clad conch-hunter Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress) with a thigh-high knife emerging from the warm Jamaican water singing the calypso song "Underneath the Mango Tree" and shaking herself dry
Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress)
  • Bond's response to a horrified Ryder after he had killed one of villainous SPECTRE agent Dr. Julius No's (Joseph Wiseman) armed guards on the island by knifing him in the back: "Because I had to"
  • the death of Dr. No when his metallic, artificial hands desperately clutched at the steel supports of a descending, sinking gantry-platform and he could not get a grip - he was submerged into the bubbling, scalding-hot radioactive water of the reactor and sank into the steaming, boiling mixture
