    Ruby Bartlett. From Lancashire. Morecambe Bay actually.

    Who would you rather spend Christmas with? Ruby on her chicken farm or Dr. Jones in Turkey?

    Ideally I'd say with Ruby in Turkey.

    If Ruby got a decent hairstyling instead of that godawful twirled wig, she'd actually give Christmas a run for her money. Plus I prefer chickens over turkey :-).

    Christmas Jones, no question. Ruby never did it for me personally.

    Ruby was pretty naughty, fellas. She was hot-to-trot and needed no warming up. With a simple stroke of her lipstick, she gave our man Bond a slight stiffness. She risked the wrath of Bunt, if caught, and she obviously doesn’t consider disrobing to be a part of foreplay.

    Christmas looked and sounded like a 16 year old trying to sound smart. And, although she has very attractive features (some cosmetically enhanced), I just don’t find her sexy, and certainly not sexual. She’s more a one dimensional pin-up. She’s got more in common with a plastic Barbie doll, than a red blooded woman, if that makes sense, 😂

    Like @j_w_pepper and other have noted, I’m also not a fan of the perm, but she’s got a beautiful face, great skin, and was a sexy risk taker. Ruby any day of the week.

    Considering the fact that I was hardly any older than those 16 years you mentioned, she was and forever will be my teenage pin-up beauty. ASFAIK her features at the time weren't enhanced at all, just one of those instances nature gets it quite right. Check 'wild things' for a closer inspection.

    It's a pity the script was written the way it was. With small adaptations her role could've been a whole lot more convincing.

    My pin up girl was Elizabeth Shue (and still is), so nothing wrong with that, 😂.

    Now about Ruby, and even though I do prefer Christmas, @j_w_pepper is right, her hairdo did her no favours in OHMSS. She also appeared in CR67 and was considerably, ehm, more elegant in that one.

    A landslide for Turkey and Christmas! I should have known to pit the good Doctor against the patient of Blofeld.

    Ah well, lets move on and ask the following, which was submitted by @SIS_HQ

    Would you rather have the next Bond theme to have a proper ending (closing) tune or just abrupt, shortly end, or just fade?

    Some Bond songs have final endings like You Only Live Twice, For Your Eyes Only, All Time High, or Licence To Kill, and Moonraker.

    You can even say the same for Skyfall, or No Time To Die, A View To A Kill and The Man With The Golden Gun.

    While some just ended up abruptly, or shortly end, or just fade away like:

    * Goldfinger (the end tune of the song was just cut, they've repeated the Goldfinger tune and just cut it there)
    * Live And Let Die (Same with Goldfinger, they've shortly extended the instrumental tune, but they didn't gave it a proper denouement).
    * The Living Daylights (just fade out at the end)
    * The World Is Not Enough (Cut abruptly)
    * Goldeneye (Cut abruptly, not given a proper denouement)
    * Tomorrow Never Dies (well kinda half, but it's mostly ended like Live And Let Die too).
    * Nobody Does It Better (Just fade out).

    Would you rather have the next Bond theme to have a proper closing tune or just fade out and just end abruptly.

    The stop or fade has to work with the visuals, so for me it's not really about what I prefer, as long as it all flows together. Personally I love it when I hear the classic fade in a contemporary song, whether Bond-related or otherwise. I feel like there was a time in around the 2000s when that fade was rare to hear in modern, commercial music.

    I tend to like the classic films as they would feature the same scene playing over the credits, course credits in those days were about 1 minute long. LOL!

    Okay lets try another seasonal would you rather:

    Would you rather watch the next Bond movie on the BIG screen OR stay home to stream?

    The producers are on record that Bond is for the BIG screen, however the rising cost of movie tickets, the hassle of going to a crowded theatre, some are deciding to consume their movies at home on their big TV screens.

    So what will it be for a future movie, BIG screen or home screen?

    No contest, BIG SCREEN.

    All other considerations aside, there is no substitute for the shared audience experience, particularly when a film is initially released and the audience is very fan heavy.

    Big screen, no contest.

    There's no better feeling in cinema than hearing the Bond theme thunder out of the darkness, that small white dot flashes and dances across the screen, then you get the first glimpse of the new James Bond as he turns and fires towards us, promising the start of a two hour long rollercoaster.

    Absolutely No contest!
    BIG screen!

    The ads and trailers are done. All the lights in the cinema dim to pitch black. The first chords scream from the speakers. The gunbarrel. Bond saunters out. Shoots...

    The buzz of anticipation shared with a packed house.

    Nothing can compete with the theatrical experience

    Yeah, @thedove : Would you rather experience a brand new Bond film in the best way possible or have a perm like Ruby?

    I actually pretty much hate the cinema experience - really, really dislike sitting in a big audience with all the potential distractions and irritations that brings. What? Yes, I am a misanthropic old git, what gave it away?! But Bond films are the only movies I've ventured into a cinema for this century and I'll maintain that tradition. Big screen, it is.

    Well, given the current rate of progress, I may be seeing Bond 26 at the 'Old-Folks Home." Large screen or small? I don't know. I suppose that will be whatever the facility has in their common area! :))

    That said, I would hope to see it on the large screen. Although the movie going experience can be a pain (i.e., 30 minutes of commercials and coming attractions ... really people?! I didn't sign-up for that!), there is still something about it that I can't replicate at home. Call it an opportunity for a shared experience.

    Big screen. Three or four times on the big screen.

    Big screen. I don't go to cinemas anymore, but a new Bond will get me back.

    Big screen. New movies should always be on the big screen. We kill that, we kill the art of film as we know it. Plus I don't have Amazon Prime, and I'd rather hook my genitals up to a car battery than get it. To hell with Amazon and the Lex Luthor-esque penis rocket man, Bezos.

    Well that was a slam dunk! Good job with the love of cinema and the BIG screen experience. Nice to know we are aligned with that!

    Lets do a whimsical one:

    Would you rather do a gift exchange with Q or with James Bond?

    On one hand we have someone who can give gadgets from voice changers, to little trinkets that can trick slot machines. From pocket cameras, to tricked out wrist watches. Q would undoubtedly please any person who loves to get a gadget for Christmas.

    The other hand, we have James Bond. The man who replaces champagne on the list if he deems it to be out of line with the meal. A man who knows good from bad brandy and sherry. Clothes make the man and Bond has a superior sense of style.

    So who would you rather get a gift from? Bonus points for telling us what you would get them for Christmas.
