first of Bond's enemies, Joseph Wiseman made Dr. No a sinister and thoughtful

quiet and well mannered appearance all the more intimidating.
"I never fail, Mr. Bond."
A geologist deeply
entangled in Dr. No's sinister plan to disrupt the superpowers' missile
launching programmes, Professor Dent (played by Anthony Dawson) attempts to
mislead 007 in his search for the secret behind Crab Key. He tries to stop
Bond's interference at first with a tarantula, then an attempted assassination
where his six shot Smith and Wesson just isn't enough.
