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: Roger Moore was Fleming's original choice to play 007, but he was under a network contract for the television show "The Saint". Other actors who were considered for the role of James Bond included Cary Grant, Trevor Howard, Rex Harrison and David Niven - he would play the role of Bond in the spoof 1967 film "Casino Royale".
Question: When James Bond goes to see Professor Dent at his office, it's morning. After he leaves, Dent goes out to Dr. No's island and picks up the caged tarantula. The next time we see Bond, he's returning to his hotel, and it's night, probably late, as he goes to sleep soon after. Where did Bond go between seeing Dent in the morning and returning to his hotel that night?
