James Bond: A Quick Film Guide

3 Conversations

This is a simple list of all the James Bond films in order of their release as well as their release year. The commonly used abbreviations for each film are included. The letters next to the film represent the actor who portrayed Bond in that film.

Also listed, for convenience, are the villains, henchmen, and Bond girls of each film as well as who played Felix Leiter (if at all) (character first, then the actor who played them; multiple persons are separated by a semicolon).

One extra piece of trivia is that Desmond Llewelyn has appeared in more James Bond films than any other actor (playing the role of Q, which is now played by John Cleese). Without further ado, the quick guide:
