You Only Live Thrice: Bond Film "Skyfall" Opens

Looking back at the James Bond film franchise—it turns 50 this year—we realized 007 has a thing for revisiting places where he’s nearly died. Case in point: Istanbul. The setting of this month’s Skyfall (opening nationwide this week), it’s where he once dodged villains at Hagia Sophia and almost drowned in the Bosporus. Oh, James, will you ever learn?
