Ian Fleming’s James Bond is often depicted wearing a Rolex, driving a Bentley (or Aston Martin) and drinking the finest drinks in the finest places. But in the 1950s and 1960s what would a secret agent’s wage actually be and would there be all the perks that James Bond enjoys?

I’m curious what a spy would have earned IRL during Fleming’s time and what the incentives of a job well done would have been and how far was Bond’s lifestyle from reality?

If I (age 26) were suddenly transported back to the 1950s or 60s and pretended to fit in, what would I probably not think to account for?

It's easy to know the basics: no talking about phones or the internet, keep my opinions on social issues to myself, and dress more formally.

But what are some things I would still probably end up doing that would seem strange or unusual if I suddenly landed in this time period with an ID, car, house, and job?

What would 1950s America have found obscene about the word "pregnancy" in the context of I Love Lucy's two married characters having a baby?

Much has been made of 1950s sitcom I Love Lucy depicting the first pregnancy storyline in American television. However, CBS censors deemed the word "pregnancy" to be too obscene for American audiences even in the context of married characters who also happened to be married in real life. CBS opted to go with the euphemism "Lucy is Enceinte" to avoid upsetting American sensibilities of the time.

My question is: why would pregnancy be considered obscene to the average American audience when pregnancy is generally considered (to the best of my knowledge) the least taboo and most celebrated aspect of reproduction. Especially when pregnancy occurs within the traditional confines of a marriage.

What need in American society was this censorship fulfilling?

in 1950s America was it common for the boss and his wife to have dinner an an employees home, or is that purely a sitcom plot?

I've seen this a few times in old TV shows and most recently in a modern show done in a 1950s style; an episode involves having to host a dinner to impress the husband's boss with it being very clear the husbands employment/promotion prospects hinge on the success of the evening.

Was this sort of social interaction where employees were expected to show that they had a "proper" domestic home life to their employers ever common, or is it just a plot made up for TV that has been re-used many times over the years because it has good potential for sitcom style misunderstandings and hijinks?
