Forgot to mention the most important thing about Connery is how often he is at a massive disadvantage that he has to overcome. That’s why he’s great. He gets beat up a lot.

CORRECTION: I, a fool, did this whole series of posts from memory and accidentally selected From Russia With Love for Moore, a film he is not in. The correct Best Moore is The Spy Who Loved Me. I’m sure you can see how one could make that mistake.

@Thomas I always idealized Lazenby in my head as a romantic outsider Bond—until I actually watched OHMSS in full and was thoroughly disappointed. Part of the internal conflict was Lazenby wanting his Bond to be more of a loose unshaven hippy for the 60s and 70s: a big Bond no-no. I like to think if he'd accepted a 6-film run he might have been able to grow comfortably into the role.

@brownpau @Thomas
Opening the movie with Lazenby breaking the fourth wall and announcing that he's not Sean Connery was probably a mistake. It was meant to be a sly joke, but felt desperate - "I know i'm not the guy you want, but i'm trying my best, please be nice!"
That instantly dug a hole the guy had to climb out of for the rest of the film.

@Thomas strong disagree! but some great picks otherwise
