The YouTube channel Mental Floss, which features trivia information, recently produced a video featuring 27 facts on the James Bond series. 

James Bond is a fictional British spy created by Ian Fleming in 1953.

Since Fleming’s death in 1964, eight other authors have written authorized Bond novels or novelizations including Kingsley Amis, Christopher Wood, John Gardner, Raymond Benson, Sebastian Faulks, Jeffery Deaver, William Boyd and Anthony Horowitz.

The character has also been adapted for television, radio, comic strip, video games and film.

The films are the longest continually running and the third-highest-grossing film series to date, which started in 1962 with Dr. No, starring Sean Connery as Bond.
