James Bond is about as iconic as a movie (and book) character can be. Grab your exploding pen and let's see how you do on the ultimate Bond quiz. You might earn your license to kill.
Counting a lone television appearance, there have been eight actors that suited up for the role of Bond.
Probably best known for directing what is widely regarded as the best Star Wars movie, "The Empire Strikes Back," Irvin Kershner also directed Connery in his return to the Bond role in 1983's "Never Say Never Again."
Close, but "Russia" was second to "Dr. No."
The classic boat chase in "Live and Let Die" is highlighted by a world-record-breaking jump.
Nintendo hit the jackpot with the video game "Goldeneye," regarded as one of the great first-person shooters.
Duran Duran performed the theme to 1985's "A View to a Kill." Dance into the fire!
Some people believe Fleming was his own inspiration for the Bond character.
In one of the more unfortunate Roger Moore comedy bits, he tells a tiger to sit, and the tiger complies.
Moore was the oldest Bond when he debuted in "Live and Let Die" at 45.
Roger Moore always felt and looked awkward when he ran, so that's a stuntman you're looking at in the Moore movies.
Many people think that M is the name of Bond's immediate superior. It's actually the title associated with that job.
"Octopussy" was known for some of its overt slapstick comedy. The Tarzan jungle yell is chief among the offenses.
Ursula Andress famously made her debut as the first Bond girl as Honey Ryder in "Dr. No."
Grant was a friend of Bond producer Cubby Broccoli, but he still turned down the initial Bond role.
Dr. No had mechanical hands. It was Francisco Scaramanga of "Man with the Golden Gun" who had the third nipple.
There have been plenty of great Bond villains, but only Oddjob threw his deadly bowler hat.
In "Moonraker," actor Richard Kiel uttered his only line, "well, here's to us" while toasting his girlfriend.
Sean Connery has always been a little challenged in the hair department, so he sports a toupee in the Bond movies.
Connery picked one of his own as his favorite, "From Russia With Love."
Maud Adams played Octopussy in that same year, but it was Kim Basinger who played Bond girl Domino Petachi.
Dalton was the actor who, at 24, felt he was to young to play Bond.
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has put the brakes on the 23rd Bond film until the studio solves some of its financial issues.
KAOS and CONTROL are both from the Bond spoof TV series "Get Smart." Blofeld headed up SPECTRE.
Bond had a couple of Oscar wins for 2012's "Skyfall": The film received an Academy Award for Sound Editing and another for Original Song.
There have been fourteen Oscar nominations for Bond films over the years.
Once again, you can dance into the fire with Duran Duran on this one.
Lady Gaga can offer you a quantum of solace, but that doesn't mean she sang the theme song. This one belongs to Jack White and Alicia Keys.
Shirley Bassey performed a total of three Bond theme songs.
Even though "Dr. No" was the first film released, it was "Casino Royale" that got the book franchise going.
Fleming wrote the children's novel "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" and helped create the TV show "The Man From U.N.C.L.E."
