The six-decades long (and counting), most successful movie franchise of all time began with this introduction to the James Bond character created by novelist Ian Fleming in 1953. The British secret agent 007 is assigned to infiltrate the secret domain of mastermind criminal Dr. Julius No on Crab Key Island near Jamaica. No, who has prosthetic metal hands due to radiation exposures, is trying to disrupt U.S. space flights. This HUGE box-office hit featured the cinema’s first and best James Bond (the inimitable Sean Connery), the first “Bond girl,” Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress), the first bigger-than-life villain (Joseph Wiseman), and thrilled audiences with magnificent stunt work, colorful locations, and the memorable Bond theme by composer Monty Norman. After opening in the U.K. in 1962, it opened in the U.S. in May 1963, including the film’s original El Paso theatrical run at the Plaza Theatre — Jay Duncan
