    LALD is Top 10 for me, has been for a long time. In fact I was pretty surprised to realize just a few years ago that so many here flat out don't care for it, or at least have it way down on their ranking. I had always assumed it was a classic of Moore's.

    It has recently cracked my top 10, where I think it will stay for some time. Great fun.

    I think it’s the most fun bond film, very enjoyable. It started near the bottom for me but gets better every time

    I have it at no. 16, which means I like it.

    The man with the golden gun

    Yes, that's the one I had in mind too. The source novel could also be added to the list.

    I've always been curious about just how many times James Bond has used the words, "Bond. James Bond." Excluding the .5/interrupted time in GF, here is what I counted (with the help of this site: https://www.springfieldspringfield.co.uk/). Yes, I am that much of a Bond nerd. Please someone correct me if I am wrong:

    DN - 1
    GF - 1
    OHMSS - 2
    DAF - 1
    LALD - 1
    TMWTGG - 3
    TSWLM - 1
    MR - 1
    FYEO - 2
    OP - 1
    AVTAK - 2
    TLD - 1
    LTK - 1
    GE - 1
    TND - 1
    TWINE - 2
    DAD - 1
    CR - 1
    SF - 1
    SP - 1

    Total: 26. 3 for Connery, 2 for Lazenby, 11 for Moore, 2 for Dalton, 5 for Brosnan, and 3 for Craig. The only films without the use of the line are: FRWL, TB, YOLT, and QOS.

    Funny it has become such a staple, when it wasn t in the early films.

    It wasn't in many of the original Bond novels either as I recall.

    Connery didn t have to remind people all the time he was Bond.

    True. He was The Real McBond.

    It was there at the beginning, early in the novel CR. I believe it appears in at least half of the original novels. Next time I'll count.

    FoxRox's post reminded me that I'd looked this up earlier and forgot to post it for those of you who haven't seen these and like this. Some of the numbers don't match up on both pages--anyone have a better source?

    Probably makes more sense than the alleged, never-to-be-seen Stinger missiles in the deplorable Z3.

    Just want to say as a Yank who's a recreational golfer--here's to England's Ian Poulter for winning the Houston Open golf tournament today. He made a clutch putt on 18 to force a playoff, and it seems his steadier nerves and steely fire helped him beat his much younger American opponent, Beau Hossler. I always enjoy watching Poulter play, though I also admire Rory McIlroy's talent.

    Just came across this. From what film(s) in this video does Lazenby sport a mustache?

    Thanks, I'll add that to my list as well! That list of films to see is getting long, now. Not that I'm complaining, though!
