Sean Connery is unsurpassed as James Bond. But Roger Moore remained personable and charming to the end, while Connery has withered and become a whinging Scottish nationalist ..... from tax exile.

Haha it's true that Connery is the best Bond...

Man with the Golden Gun is one of my favorite Bond films too ...

Sean of course was the best but Rog was excellent against Scaramanga and Nick Nack, and the way he managed the situation with Mary Goodnight when Maud Adams shows up at the hotel room was inspired ...

plus there's the whole Enter the Dragon homage, and the Beirut belly dancer, the seaplane and the islands, the Chinese junk, the flying AMC Matador, the removable third nipple, it's all good ...

it is true that Sheriff J. W. Pepper needed to catch a beating but the awesome combined star power of Christopher Lee, Britt Ekland, Maud Adams, Herve Villechaize ("he's a Cordon Bleu you know"), and Desmond Llewellyn more than compensates for that minor annoyance.

The execrable Pepper (honestly, WHY) excepted, I think MWTGG has the perfect amounts of the three Moore era elements, action + goofiness + class...

Sean Connery, of course, long will be revered as the quintessential Bond by the general audience. However, for my money, Daniel Craig turns in the best performances, and his movies remain my second favorites (combined) after From Russia, With Love. And yes, I grew up on the Bond movies of the 1960s.

Re: Mr. Stanshall's Very Own Thread -

I'm a big fan of Craig, too... The Craig movies are a really a different beast though, except maybe Spectre which was very silly... I'm also a big fan of On Her Majesty's Secret Service which could be seen as a precursor to the Craig Bonds in a way, especially the ending...

Re: Mr. Stanshall's Very Own Thread -

the Daniel Craig Casino Royale was excellent, it's true, he's the second-best serious Bond ... Roger Moore's Bond in Man with the Golden Gun and Spy Who Loved Me is inimitable in its own way and I really love those films, but Goldfinger will always be the greatest 007 film, and From Russia With Love the second-greatest, to me.

Musically Thunderball is thrilling, and my favorite theme songs are Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice, and Live and Let Die.  I also sometimes listen to the Burt Bacharach Casino Royale album.

going to discuss Bond women too but Ursula Andress and Daniela Bianchi ...., and Lana Wood for starters .....

(If you open in a new tab it gets bigger)

GoldenEye is another great one... Brosnan was another great Bond who was failed by the movies he was in, which got progressively dumber over the four...

Our pal and Talk Ivy member Senorservo2.0 was and is probably still down in Puerto Rico working on hurricane relief.  To all his friends here, please try to call and text him to find out how he's doing and wish him and his family well.

Re: Mr. Stanshall's Very Own Thread -

available from Sears, this sport convertible is "amazingly detailed," "beautifully detailed," and carries a "new car body guarantee of one year against breakage," this is the luxury car for me:
