Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Dr. No

Sean Connery's first appearance as Ian Fleming's superspy was in 1962's "Dr. No", which was based on the 1958 book of the same name. The film not only introduced the character of James Bond to the world for the first time on the big screen, but also the long-suffering supporting cast who have to 'manage' Bond and his ego:

Head of the British Secret Service (MI6): 'M' - portrayed by Bernard Lee for 11 Bond films.
M's clever secretary: Miss Moneypenny - played by Lois Maxwell for 16 movies.
The Quartermaster: 'Q' - portrayed by Peter Burton for just this one film.
Bond's CIA counterpart: Felix Leiter - performed by Jack Lord for just this first in the series.

And, of course, we meet the first of many 'Bond girls' in "Dr. No":
Sylvia Trench, portrayed by Eunice Gayson.
Miss Taro, acted by Zena Marshall.
Honey Ryder, played by Ursula Andress.

In "Dr. No", Bond is dispatched to Jamaica to investigate the murders of the MI6 Station Chief and his secretary, which leads him to uncover a plot by Dr. Julius No (Joseph Wiseman) to disrupt planned rocket launches from Cape Canaveral by means of a powerful jamming radio beam. And it is also revealed that there is a larger criminal conspiracy in the form of SPECTRE (Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion).
2. From Russia with Love

"From Russia with Love" (1963) was based on the 1957 Ian Fleming book of the same name, and continued the story of 007 and the fallout from his actions in "Dr. No". In an effort to have their revenge on the spy, SPECTRE hatches a plot to assassinate Bond (Sean Connery again) and uses the newest Bond girl (Tatiana Romanova, portrayed by Daniela Bianchi) as the bait. Honourable mentions as Bond girls in the film go to the Gypsy girls Zora (Martine Beswick) and Vida (Aliza Gur).

More first appearances came with "From Russia with Love":

Desmond Llewelyn took over the role of 'Q' (which he held for 17 films!).
Bond's arch-nemesis: Ernst Stavro Blofeld (not seen directly, first played by Anthony Dawson).
3. Goldfinger

"Goldfinger" (1964) was Sean Connery's third outing as 007, and the story was based off of Fleming's 1959 novel of the same name. In this outing, Bond is assigned the task of investigating magnate Auric Goldfinger and his smuggling enterprise. He ultimately uncovers a plot to contaminate Fort Knox's gold reserves with a nuclear device.

The number of Bond girls in "Goldfinger" is increased, as Bond shares a bath in the opening sequence with Bonita (Nadja Regin), then later connects with Jill Masterson (Shirley Eaton), whom Goldfinger has killed by encasing her body in gold paint. Jill's sister Tilly (Tania Mallett) interacts with Bond for a while as she tries to exact revenge for her sister's death (and gets killed, herself), and finally one cannot forget Goldfinger's pilot extraordinaire, Pussy Galore, portrayed by Honor Blackman.

"Goldfinger" was also the film wherein the iconic, silver Aston Martin DB5 made its first appearance!
4. Thunderball

SPECTRE is back at their shenanigans in "Thunderball" (1965) as they effect the theft of two NATO nuclear bombs and demand £100 million in diamonds under the threat of destroying a city (either in America or England). Bond (once again Sean Connery) tracks down SPECTRE's 'No. 2' (Emilio Largo) in The Bahamas, where the bombs have been hidden underwater. The film is famous for its extended underwater battle between SPECTRE operatives and Bond (and a bunch of US Navy frogmen).

Dominique "Domino" Derval (Claudine Auger) is the primary Bond girl in "Thunderball", the mistress of Emilio Largo. Returning as a Bond girl is Martine Beswick as Bond's liaison Paula Caplan in The Bahamas (she was Zora in "From Russia with Love"). Honourable mentions include SPECTRE henchwoman Fiona Volpe (played by Luciana Paluzzi), nurse Patricia Fearing (played by Molly Fearing), and French operative Mademoiselle La Porte (portrayed by Maryse Guy Mitsouko).
5. You Only Live Twice

"You Only Live Twice" (1967) does not share much similarity with the 1964 Ian Fleming novel of the same name, especially considering that the novel follows up on the plotline of "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" (which is the subsequent film).

Sean Connery's James Bond fakes his death by burial at sea, leaving him able to freely investigate the mystery of disappearing American and Soviet space shuttles. He uncovers a plot by SPECTRE's 'No. 1' - Ernst Stavro Blofeld (now played by Donald Pleasence) - to enflame the Cold War into World War III, through the efforts of a Japanese industrialist (Mr. Osato). He has a secret base hidden in a volcano from which SPECTRE has launched their own spacecraft to capture the shuttles.

The Bond girls in this installment include Ling (played by Tsai Chin), who helps fake Bond's death, senior Japanese agent Aki (played by Akiko Wakabayashi), Japanese ninja agent Kissy Suzuki (played by Mie Hama), and SPECTRE henchwoman Helga Brandt (played by Karin Dor).
6. On Her Majesty's Secret Service

1969's "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" introduced a new face as James Bond - model George Lazenby - who would only fill the role for this one film. Also changing faces is Bond's nemesis and head of SPECTRE - Ernst Stavro Blofeld, played by Telly Savalas.

The story this time focuses primarily on Bond's attempt to track down (and take down) the elusive Blofeld. Bond traces him to Switzerland, where Blofeld is running an exclusive clinical allergy-research institute (only for women, of course). Bond is able to gain access to the remote site high in the Alps by posing as a genealogist, there to investigate Blofeld's claim to the title 'Count Balthazar de Bleuchamp'. Of course, there is more to Blofeld's scheme, as all of the women in his clinic are being brainwashed for nefarious purposes.

Alongside the action, James Bond also has occasion to fall in love with Contessa Teresa "Tracy" di Vicenzo, portrayed by Diana Rigg. The movie begins with his encountering her and foiling her attempt at suicide, and ends with their wedding and her unfortunate death in a drive-by shooting by Blofeld. Of course, she was not the only Bond girl in the film, as 007 makes the close acquaintance of a couple of the women at the clinic: Ruby (played by Angela Scoular), and Nancy (played by Catherine Schell).
7. Diamonds are Forever

Despite having 'retired' from the role of 007 after "You Only Live Twice", Sean Connery was enticed to return for his sixth and final time for 1971's "Diamonds are Forever", which shares the name of Fleming's 1956 novel (his fourth "Bond" story).

With the horrific ending to "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", Bond is keen on hunting down Ernst Stavro Blofeld (now portrayed by Charles Gray) to take his revenge for Tracy's death. In the process, he discovers that Blofeld is having a number of other men being surgically altered to be his look-alikes.

Bond is sent on a mission to investigate a diamond smuggling operation, which turns out to (of course) be connected to Blofeld, who is using the diamonds in a laser satellite, which he then uses in a demonstration by destroying select nuclear weapons in the Soviet Union, the United States, and China. With this display of power, Blofeld endeavours to set up an auction to sell this powerful weapon to the highest bidder. Before his plan can be completed, Bond foils his efforts and destroys the mechanism to control the satellite.

The primary Bond girl in "Diamonds are Forever" is Tiffany Case (portrayed by Jill St. John), part of the diamond smuggling chain who joins 007 after she narrowly avoids being killed by Blofeld's henchmen. Other Bond girls include Plenty O'Toole (Lana Wood), who is killed in place of Tiffany Case, and the two gymnastic bodyguards Bambi (Lola Larson) and Thumper (Trina Parks) who give Bond a hard time.
8. Live and Let Die

Roger Moore steps into the role of James Bond for the first time with 1973's "Live and Let Die", based on the 1954 novel of the same name, which was the second novel published in the series.

When three MI6 agents are killed within a day of each other, Bond is sent to investigate. One of the agents was keeping an eye on Dr. Kananga, the dictator of a small Caribbean island. His investigation leads to a gangster in New York by the name of Mr. Big, and it is soon revealed that Dr. Kananga and Mr. Big are the same man, and that he has a plan to monopolize the heroin trade, bankrupting his competition.

Along the way, Bond 'gets to know' Solitaire (Jane Seymour), a tarot reader working for Kananga. The two other Bond girls in "Live and Let Die" are Miss Caruso (Madeleine Smith), the Italian agent Bond was with in the opening scene of the film, and Rosie Carver (Gloria Hendry), a CIA agent secretly working with Kananga.
9. The Man with the Golden Gun

In Roger Moore's second outing as 007, he comes up against "The Man with the Golden Gun", who is revealed to be international assassin Francisco Scaramanga (Christopher Lee). This ninth "Bond" film was based on the 1965 (and last Fleming "James Bond") novel of the same name.

When assigned to find a scientist and his invention capable of solving the energy crisis, Bond runs afoul of Scaramanga, who has acquired the Solex Agitator for himself. Bond eventually tracks Scaramanga to his secluded island home near China. The master assassin challenges Bond to a duel (in his 'funhouse', as seen in the opening film sequence), but it doesn't turn out well for him.

The requisite Bond girls in "The Man with the Golden Gun" are Andrea Anders (played by Maud Adams), Scaramanga's kept woman, and ditzy Mary Goodnight (Britt Ekland), Bond's Secret Service assistant while in Hong Kong.
10. The Spy Who Loved Me

1977's "The Spy Who Loved Me" marked Roger Moore's third time as the super spy 007, and while the film shares the name of Fleming's tenth novel, there is nothing similar in the storylines.

The movie follows a similar plot to "You Only Live Twice", where a mastermind is trying to instigate World War III. Only, instead of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, this time it is megalomaniac Karl Stromberg (portrayed by Curt Jürgens). And instead of disappearing space shuttles, in this instance it is disappearing nuclear submarines. Stromberg intends to have the two (American and Soviet) submarines fire their missiles and trigger a war, leaving just his utopic civilization under the sea to survive the nuclear holocaust.

In the course of his investigation, Bond comes into competition with a Soviet spy named Anya Amasova (played by Barbara Bach) and they both encounter the hulking 'Jaws', played by Richard Kiel. The other Bond girls in the film are Stromberg's assistant Naomi (portrayed by Caroline Munro), and the unnamed KGB agent Bond was romancing in the opening sequence, portrayed by Sue Vanner.
