She didn't run around in a bikini or get involved with Mr Bond .... except to tell him what to do!!! SHE WAS THE BOSS!!! Starting out in 1995 in GoldenEye with Pierce Brosnan (his first Bond film) and still going in SKYFALL being released Nov. 9, 2012 with Daniel Craig. I read rumors that this is the end of M to be replaced by Ralph Fiennes...but this is just rumor it will not be confirmed by production. SKYFALL is being released in IMAX theaters and that should be a real treat for Bond fans. Can't wait to see it!!!!
