10 Shocking Crimes Of The Real James Bond

Listverse: In 1953, Ian Fleming told a friend that he had been inspired to create James Bond after reading about the life of Sidney Reilly. Known as the “Ace of Spies,” Reilly was one of the greatest British agents of the early 20th century. But he was also a ruthless and dangerous man, loyal to no one but himself, and ready to betray or murder anyone who got in his way.

The "Reilly, Ace of Spies" miniseries is well worth a watch.
