Flick Pick: Dr. No

Dr. No.
(United Artists, 1962)

They had no idea when they made this one they were creating one of the most durable franchises in cinematic history, launching a relatively unknown actor on the path to superstardom, or creating one of the most ear-conic themes ever composed. They just wanted a decent action-adventure movie, that came sufficiently close to the Ian Fleming novels that they'd make their money back, and hopefully even a tidy profit. It is, and it did. And all the rest.

And yes, if you're wondering, except for a few departures, it's going to be a mostly Bond month here for awhile. It isn't summer without them.
