Ian Fleming is said to be one of the best writers to come out of England. He was born on May 28, 1908. His love for adventure was attributed to his brother the traveler and co-author Peter Fleming. He served during WWII as an assistant to the director of Navel Intelligence with the rank of commander. During this time he was very much like the legendary character, he created agent 007 James Bond of the British Secret Service. After the Navy in 1953, he wrote Casino Royal. Many Bond books were created after this best seller. Including The Spy Who Loved Me, Live and Let Die, Goldfinger, From Russia With Love, For Your Eyes Only, Diamonds Are Forever, Moonraker, and Thunderball. Eventually Hollywood caught on and James Bond hit the big screen with Dr. No. Based on the book starring Sean Connery and Ursula Andrews. The film Dr. No was more action packed than the book by Ian Fleming because of action scenes, plot, and settings.

In the 90's and perhaps for many years past the new millenium action is a four-letter word, Bond. James Bond symbolizes everything a modern man wants to be, handsome, with action in is life, and always getting the girl. It is the action scenes, which make Bond enjoyed by all. The action scenes are the major reason why the movie is more action packed then the book. From the opening shots of the movie there is action. Strangways another agent of the British Secret Service leaves the Queens Club and is shot by three blind black beggars. In the book, they are three blind Chigroes-Chinese Negroes. He is then thrown into a black hearse. The next action scene comes in when the beggars arrive at Strangways' place where they kill Mary Trueblood, Strangways' secretary.
