Has it really been fifty years of smooth talking, gun-toting, and sexy love-making, Mr Bond? Because it sure seems like you’ve not aged a day.

With the opening of the latest Bond movie, Skyfall, we decided to pick our favourite scenes from the 23 movies. We assure you it wasn’t an easy task — what with every Bond movie being chock-full of action-packed fight sequences, heart-stopping high-speed chases, and last-minute damsel-saving — but we finally managed to agree on five.

So take a walk down memory lane, but be warned: you might find yourself wanting to catch all 22 previous movies before heading out for Skyfall. Such is the effect James Bond has on us women.
