There's a good chance that William Stevenson, during World War II code-named "Intrepid" was the real life inspiration for James Bond, 007. Stevenson and Ian Fleming knew each other, and during the war Stevenson pulled off some amazingly clever coups to disadvantage the Axis powers. In the late 1930's he printed tickets to a pro-German rally with the wrong date on them.
