Cover ImageOfficial video blurb

'Bond........James Bond'. With those immortal words the world was introduced to the charismatic 007, the brain child of Ian Fleming. The film premiered at the London Pavilion on 5th October 1962 to both critical and public acclaim. Variety magazine announced 'as a screen hero, James Bond is clearly here to stay.'

Bond is instructed to investigate a US enquiry about interference to their rocket launches at Cape Canaveral. Bond is sent to Jamaica, the suspected nerve centre from where the interference is emanating, to stifle the plans of his arch enemy SPECTRE's delegate, Dr.No, who will stop at nothing to get the world into the evil clutches of his metallic hands. Only Bond, his trusty Walther PPK and the sultry vision from the ocean, Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress) stand in his way.

Official website plot synopsis

In his explosive debut, film history's immortal action hero blazes through one of his most spectacular adventures. With inimitable style, Sean Connery embodies the suave yet lethal cool of Agent 007.

Bond's mission takes him to the steamy island of Jamaica, where mysterious energy waves are interfering with U.S. missile launches. As he unravels the astonishing truth, 007 must fight deadly assassins, sexy femmes fatales and even a poisonous tarantula. With the help of crack CIA agent Felix Leiter (Jack Lord) and the beautiful Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress), he searches for the headquarters of Dr. No, a fanatical scientist who is implementing an evil plan of world domination. Only James Bond, with his combination of wit, charm and skill, can confront the madman and save the human race from a horrible fate.

With breathtaking chases, amazing stunts and a bold, nerve-shattering climax, this outrageously entertaining adventure pushes the envelope for non-stop thrills and magnificently sets the standard for the most popular movie series of all time.
