I’m a huge James Bond fan, in case you’ve missed it! Here’s a little something a wrote about 007 and his style a while back. He is one of the most recognizable characters from the movies, and is still, after 50 years, filing up theaters. It is amazing how he goes through the decades, innovates, gets new cars and gadgets, goes back to the old car again and still the magic continues.
Some of you might not know this, but one of the places where Ian Fleming started the creation of the James Bond character was right here in Portugal, in Estoril to be more precise, where he was stationed during a part of the WW II. Lisbon and Estoril were a true nest of spies and intrigues where Ailed and Axis forces fought a quiet war that was set to be essential for the defeat of Germany.
Well, back to 007, here are the pics from British GQ showcasing all the 6 Bonds in chronological order.
Sean Connery - one of my favs, if it weren’t Daniel Craig he would still be no. 1
George Lazenby – he would have been one of the meanest Bonds ever, if he could keep his mouth shut (he told the producer to go f*ª”k himself), so he only did one movie.
Roger Moore - he was the perfect 007 for the late 70′s an early 80′s
Timothy Dalton – a bit unloved, but I like his movies, specially Living Daylights, that Aston V8 is still one of my favorite cars ever.
Pierce Brosnan – to smooth to be Bond, apart from GoldenEye (that was the mission that Ian Fleming was working on in Lisbon during the War), the other three stories not very good.
Daniel Craig – he was born to play this role. He brings back some of the Connery’s roughness and completes it with the mystery that is very noticeable in the books, but not so much in the latest movies.
Long live the new Bond. In case you haven’t seen it click here to see the trailer of SKYFALL the new movie that will premier late this October .
