Ever since the film, Doctor No, was released in 1962, the character of James Bond has fascinated and enthralled the cinema-­going public. This love affair with Bond not only stems from Ian Fleming's brilliant books, but also from the portrayal of Bond by actors from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig; with Connery setting the yardstick by which his various successors have been measured. But what about the actors who could have been the first Bond but never actually played the part? All those 'near misses'.

The Men Who Might Have Been Bond provides a fascinating insight into Ian Fleming's early struggles to get his books made into films and the subsequent protracted search for the perfect actor to play what turned out to be one of the most famous roles in cinematic history.
