Movie Summary

Terence Young

Following the murder of a British intelligence officer in Jamaica, James Bond is dispatched by the spy agency MI6 to investigate his suspicious death. The officer in question was working with the CIA to look into the disruption, via radio jamming, of launches from Cape Canaveral. Bond, the charming and resourceful secret agent, must unravel a mystery that includes a heavily guarded private island owned by a shadowy man named Dr. No, warnings from frightened locals that a dragon guards the island, and a beautiful woman caught in the middle. With danger lurking at every turn, Bond must sort friend from foe to stop the designs of an evil mastermind in his attempts to gain world domination.

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • James Bond: (entering his room to find Sylvia wearing his pajamas and putting golf balls) Tell me...do you always dress this way for golf?
        Sylvia Trench: I changed into something more comfortable. Oh, I hope I did the right thing.
        James Bond: You did the right thing, but you picked the wrong moment. I have to leave immediately.
        Sylvia Trench: Oh, that's too bad. Just as things were getting interesting again. (kisses Bond) When did you say you have to leave?
        James Bond: Immediately...(Sylvia kisses him again)...almost immediately.

      • M: (after briefing Bond about his mission to Jamaica) Give me your gun. Yes, I thought so...this damned Beretta again. I've told you about this before. You tell him...for the last time.
        Major Boothroyd: It's nice and light... in a lady's handbag. No stopping power.
        M: Any comments, 007?
        James Bond: I disagree, sir. I've used the Beretta for ten years. I've never missed with it yet.
        M: Maybe not, but it jammed on your last job. You spent six months in the hospital in consequence. If you carry a double-0 number, it means you're licensed to kill, not get killed. And another thing... since I've been head of MI6, there's been a 40% drop in double-0 operative casualties and I want it to stay that way. You'll carry the Walther... unless, of course, you prefer to go back to standard intelligence duties.
        James Bond: No, sir. I would not.
        M: Then from now on, you carry a different gun. Show him.
        Major Boothroyd: (handing Bond the gun) Walther PPK. It's 7.65 mil, with a delivery like a brick through a plate glass window. Takes a Brausch silencer with very little reduction in muzzle velocity. The American CIA swear by them.
        M: Thank you, Major Boothroyd.

      • Miss Moneypenny: (admiring Bond's tuxedo) You never take me to dinner looking like this, James... you never take me to dinner, period.
        James Bond: I would, you know, only M would have me court-martialed for illegal use of government property.
        Miss Moneypenny: Flattery will get you nowhere... but don't stop trying!
