Agent 007 saves the world on film, but super-spy's fashion sense leaves crowds shaken, and stirred.

    When the first James Bond film, "Dr No", was released in 1962,a movie legend was born.

    Half a century on, and the film franchise is still popular worldwide and the Bond character has been copied by many paler imitations.

    To celebrate 50 years of Bond movies, an exhibition has opened in London that examines how the image of Agent 007 has changed over the years.
