James Bond turns 50

EDISON - It was 50 years ago today that we first heard Sean Connery introduce himself as "Bond, James Bond."

It was in "Dr. No," the first of more than 20 Bond films. Connery was the first of six actors to play the role.

Roger Moore played Bond seven times, more than any other actor. He says the secret to Bond's longevity is that people like the familiar.

The latest is Daniel Craig, who'll star in his third Bond movie, "Skyfall," next month.

Singer Adele has made her return to the music scene on the official theme for the movie, the artist confirmed yesterday on her official Twitter page.
