**James Bond wears a strap on plastic seagull hat**

This entry is widely recognised as the template for all the Bond films that followed - and we can see why in the opening sequence. James Bond ( Sean Connery) in disguise wearing _a strap on plastic seagull_ on his head.

It's a Roger Moore Bond movie nine years before Roger Moore! I love the ludicrous Bond movies such as Goldfinger and Octopussy - two of my favorites. Octopussy has Roger Moore _riding a plastic crocodile_ and Goldfinger has _Sean Connery wearing a strap on plastic seagull hat!_

_Thunderball_, a year later, continued the ludicrous fun with Connery's Bond riding a jet pack and fighting cross dressing assassins.

It's a shame that in 2006, the franchise died and became something utterly bland with the advent of the Craig era.
