My favorite was always John Wayne! I also have always loved cowboy movies, to me the only 007, was Sean Connnery! He was the best!

Actually, Ian Fleming was trained at Camp X during World War II. That is where hemet the rich Entrepreneur and famous spy Sir William Stephenson. That is who the real James Bond is.

The Man With No Name is a fictional character from Sergio Leone’s Dollars Trilogy, so how on Earth is #3 Roland Deschain based on a “real” person? 🤨 I’m sorry to see no mention of D’Artagnan, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, all of whom actually WERE based on real people.
