On This Date

May 28, 1908: Ian Fleming was born, and martinis, Aston Martins, and bosomy women in tight dresses carrying sidearms took on a whole new meaning, as well as introducing the genre of suave secret agents with a license to kill and a whole array of catchphrases like “Bond. James Bond,” and “Shaken, not stirred.”

And without Ian Fleming, there would have been no Get Smart.
