    Great thread :)

    Though, you should have gone for Dalton so there was atleast a chance of having a discussion about the choices.

    Anyway after thinking about this for a while I decided to rank Lazenbys films like this:

    1. On Her Majesty's Secret Service

    :)

    I would have liked Sean Connery doing OHMSS, i thought script was written for him more then Lazenby, don't get me wrong Lazenby was good but I missed Connery after all Connery is the classic James Bond.

    I didn't say that his worst movie is OHMSS, I missed Connery in that movie.

    I watched OHMSS again yesterday and I seemed to enjoy it a lot more this time round. The hand to hand combat was prety explosive too.

    OHMSS is pretty good, but I think OHMSS is his best movie though.

    You guys are still wrong. OHMSS is not Lazenby's best. OHMSS is Lazenby's best. No contest.

    Lazenby's acting: 7/10 (he gets better in the role DURING the movie)
    Action sequences: 10/10, some of the best action sequences of the franchise.
    Ending: 10/10, one of the best IMHO, very emotional.

    Cinematography is also superb, especially the scene where Bond and co attack in a helicopter during the climax.

    Definetly Lazenby's best Bond movie.

    Would you be TOO surprised to discover that this is NOT the only movie where Lazenby plays a Bond-like spy?

    In fact, Lazenby even played Jor-El in the 90's SUPERBOY series.

    He even played 'JB' in The Return of the Man from Uncle in 1983. Co-incidentally, the year Connery played Bond again and Moore was in Octopussy.

    Lazenby also plays a Bondish spy named James in an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents called Diamonds Aren't Forever that aired in 1989. Every time he says his last name, a loud noise from offscreen drowns it out.
