OCTOBER 26 TO JANUARY 20  Britain’s most famous secret agent, James Bond, has taken his license to kill all around the world—from Jamaica in Dr. No to Istanbul in Skyfall, the newest entry in the hugely popular film series. Now the Bond brand arrives in Toronto as the TIFF Bell Lightbox hosts Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style. This sprawling exhibition examines the ever-stylish spy’s ongoing cultural impact through costumes, sets, props like Oddjob’s steel-rimmed hat from Goldfinger, and even a December 10 appearance by John Glen, director of five Bond movies. To accompany the show, TIFF also offers screenings of every 007 film from the past half-century.  —Eva Voinigescu
