Dr. No

Bond escapes from Dr. No's prison and crawls undetected through the ventilation shafts to the main control room, where Dr. No is about to topple a new US missile. Bond thwarts the plan by overloading the nuclear reactor that powers the base; he kills Dr. No by lowering him into the overloading reactor. Honey finds him and they escape in a small boat as Dr. No's base explodes. They are later picked up by Felix Leiter and the US Marines.

Trivia: In the scene in Dr No's apartments, Bond does a double-take at a painting displayed on an easel. It was in fact a copy of Goya's "The Duke of Wellington", the original of which had been stolen in a raid on a museum shortly before filming began. Producers thought that it would be interesting to conceive that "Dr No" himself had arranged for the real life theft.

Question: Bond is very picky about having a martinti, shaken not stirred. If he drank a martini that was stirred, not shaken, would he be able to tell the difference?

Answer: Actually, yes, he would. The key to a vodka martini, Bond's preferred tipple, is that it should be served ice-cold. By shaking the drink, the ice cubes have a better chance to swish around the whole drink than they would if it was only stirred. It apparently also has the effect of dispersing the ingredients better, giving a different taste to the drink. In the spirit of scientific experimentation, some friends and I tried the drink both ways in a blind taste test a while back - it makes a surprising difference.
