The name is Corner.
Puzzle Corner, and this weekend we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the James Bond movie franchise with a special quiz.

001. Doctor No was the first movie, but the films did not follow the books sequentially. Which book was the good(?) Doctor within the novel series?
002. The first two movies (Doctor No and From Russia, With Love) share an unique distinction that NO other James Bond film does. What is it?
003. What was the movie franchise's first Oscar win?
004. What Ian Fleming James Bond novel was originally filmed as a comedy?
005. Richard Kiel has the unique distinction of playing the same Bond villain in TWO different movies. Can you name him and them?
006. Who was the "Bond Girl" during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, England?
007. What does the Double 00 designation actually mean?

We'll declassify the answers next week for your eyes only. But for now, let's peek inside THE ANSWERS BOX and discover the results from the September 15th Puzzle Corner.
