October 5: 007 turns 50
2012 didn't only mean a return of British superspy James Bond to the silver screen in "Skyfall," it also marked the film franchise's 50th anniversary. The first James Bond film, starring Sean Connery, premiered on Oct. 5, 1962, setting off a run of 23 films so far. Connery and current Bond star Daniel Craig topped an unscientific poll of Emmy-nominated actors asked to choose their favorite James Bonds.
