It might seem hard to believe, but it's been fifty years since Sean Connery first put on the suit as 007 in "Dr. No." And as fans of James Bond continue to celebrate the five-decade anniversary of the cinematic icon, there is even more to unwrap with the upcoming documentary "Everything Or Nothing: The Untold Story Of 007."

Everything Or Nothing

It might seem hard to believe, but it's been fifty years since Sean Connery first put on the suit as 007 in "Dr. No." And as fans of James Bond continue to celebrate the five-decade anniversary of the cinematic icon, there is even more to unwrap with the upcoming documentary "Everything Or Nothing: The Untold Story Of 007."

Directed by Stevan Riley, the film focuses on Bond producers Albert R. Broccoli, Harry Saltzman and author Ian Fleming, and tells the story behind and the ups and downs of the longest-running film franchise in cinema history. In this exclusive scene from the doc, United Artists' former president David Picker explains how the expensive deal went down to get cameras rolling on "Dr. No." You have to remember, there was really nothing like this in the landscape of the time, and folks were uncertain how it would adapt to the big screen, and as Francois Truffaut would later note, it was "the film that marks the beginning of the period of decadence in the cinema."

'Everything Or Nothing' will air on EPIX this Friday, Oct. 5th at 8 PM. And for more on the making of "Dr. No," check out this great piece in Vanity Fair. Watch the clip below.
