 Dr No (1962)

Dr No

It was in October of 1962 that the first theatrical james Bond movie premiered. Produced via United Artists by Albert R Broccoli and Harry Saltzman on a budget of roughly $1-million, the movie starred Scottish-born actor Sean Connery as Bond, Ursula Andress as Honey Rider and Joseph Wiseman as Dr No Bernard Lee and Lois Maxwell appeared as British Intelligence head M and his secretary, Miss Moneypenny (roles that the two actors would reprise throughout the bulk of the UA series). The script was co-written by Richard Maibaum, who would also become part of the Bond "team", returning in the future to author or co-author all but five of the UA productions.
"Dr No" is clearly the most low-key of the Bond films, although, for its time, its plot was perhaps more fantastic than most detective or spy dramas. Directed by terence Young, the story follows Bond's investigation into the murder of a jamaica-based British agent, which ultimately leads to an insidious plot to disrupt U.S. space launches.
It was a Friday night phone call from Noel Rodgers, head of music at United Artists that put John Barry to work on the two-minute composition that would become "The James Bond Theme. Barry was called back to score eleven James Bond movies over the course of the next three decades.
