On this date, April 13, 60 years ago, the very first James Bond novel was published, spurring a franchise that has captured the world with its titular hero who prefers his martinis shaken, not stirred. That book, Ian Fleming's Casino Royale, was first adapted into a TV episode in 1954, then a parody film in 1967, and finally, the 2006 film starring our current Bond, Daniel Craig. Ian Fleming went on to write a total of 12 novels and two short-story collections starring the British spy, and they were all made into Bond films.
Clearly a lot has changed since 1962, when Connery became the first Bond on the big screen in Dr. No and the iconic sexy, suited-up secret agent was born on the big screen. Aside from impeccable dressing and his shaken, not stirred, martini, it's Bond's lady-killer skills that have stood the test of time, even while 007 has been reincarnated over the years by a handful of actors playing the film role to kill for. Let's look back at the best, most innuendo-filled pickup lines from the gun-wielding heartthrob!
