7. DR. NO (1963)
Bond's first foray onto the screen was his most modest, in a movie costing less than a million dollars to make. His character is still rough around the edges ''Just a stupid policeman,'' the butter-clawed villain calls him but the stripped-down look sure worked for Ursula Andress. And Monty Norman's zippy theme music is awesome in almost every scene.
