Sean Connery leads Bonds in time spent dressed up

This final note on the way out, in which we take our martinis shaken, not stirred.

Spectre, the new James Bond film, is out Friday. And just because they could, I guess, the folks at Bloomberg did a little data journalism to mark the occasion.

There have been, over the past 53 years, 24 films totaling 51 hours. Of those 51 hours, 18 hours have Bond in a suit or a tuxedo.

Sean Connery is the Bond who’s spent the most time dressed up — and shirtless. 

Connery also introduced himself as “Bond, James Bond” fewer times than any of the others did.
