The films that bear his name portray a rich world in which debonair, sophisticated, and well-bred villains live in mansions and yachts accompanied by beautiful women who admire them. In reality, master criminals are rarely fashionable, debonair, or courteous, but rather they are crude, murderous, and unmannerly.
