Bond films are known for their elaborate sets as well as luxurious locations and costumes which bring the world of high class espionage as globe trotting evil to life. Syd Cain, Freda Pearson, and of course, Ken Adam are largely responsible for the look of Bond films to come, setting the tone in the original and they deserve much credit.

My Winner: Dr. No.
