“Dr. No” is a British spy film released in 1962, directed by Terence Young and starring Sean Connery as James Bond. It is the first installment in the James Bond film series, and is based on the 1958 novel of the same name by Ian Fleming.
In the film, James Bond is sent to Jamaica to investigate the disappearance of a fellow British agent. He discovers that a sinister figure named Dr. No is behind the disappearance, and is plotting to disrupt a US space launch with a powerful radio beam weapon. Bond must stop Dr. No and his plans before it’s too late.
The film was a critical and commercial success, and launched Sean Connery’s career as an international star. It also established many of the elements that would become hallmarks of the James Bond franchise, such as the iconic opening gun barrel sequence and the use of gadgets.
