The James Bond movies

Ian Fleming’s stories about the British secret service agent were the basis for the longest running and most successful movie franchise in history ...

Well, that is what it is according to the Bond fan website MI6*, anyway. The table below lists the books, the movies, and the actors playing the lead role. In it, the film release year gives a link to the IMDb (Internet Movie Database) page for that movie title, and this is useful because getting the list from IMDb is not trivial for two reasons:
