I have even heard some people say that placing FYEO before DAF yet right after OHMSS in the timeline makes more sense than what we got, and it does because at least in the FYEO PTS there is a sense of anger and revenge from Bond, though small. Now, how Blofeld survived the fall (if it was him) I have no idea.
Others have said that YOLT's was a clone of Blofeld.
I'm sorry that I have payed credit to the people that propose this but I can't remember who was exactly...
I am an advocate of the former, since the latter means no Tracy and we lose a lot of who Bond is by getting rid of OHMSS in the timeline of events. I haven't seen YOLT in ages, something that needs remedied, but has it ever been explained why Blofeld has a scar?
Maybe, but why does he have the scar in the first place? Is it in the novels or something, or even explained in the films why he has it?? I can't recall any instances where it is discovered or even hinted at why he does.
It's not mentioned in the novels and not mentioned in the film either.
The real-life reason is that Jan Werich was cast as Blofeld and dismissed after a week's filming for not being threatening enough. Donald Pleasance was brought in as a replacement and experimented with various physical defects to give the character some menace. They included things like a hunchback and a lame hand but Pleasance settled on a scar.
I wonder if they would have put something in the script if the scar hadn't been such a late addition to the character?

That is incredible! Awesome picture!!! :O
I especially love how you took advantage of David Hedison's footage from LALD & LTK to make the story the way it should have been in the first place! And by avoiding the closeups, Roger Moore & Carole Bouquet could easily be Lazenby and Seymour in the water.
Well done indeed!
Will you buy him Goldeneye?
I wouldn't have minded GL taking on DAF. It couldn't have been any worse.
I appreciate the effort, but it really is just a terrible lapse in continuity that cannot be explained logically (not for the first time in the Bond films). It would have made more sense if OHMSS had opened with plastic surgery on Bond, but then that would have made Connery's return in DAF the new continuity error.
Moore and Dalton's Bonds reference Tracy enough that it is clear that Tracy carries through the '70s and the '80s.
I bet it's awesome though like the others. What a different direction those movies could have gone- and I agree 50 would have been a great age to retire. Having George as Bond from age 29-50.... it would have almost been like we followed "James Bond's" career from beginning to end. A unique and vastly different take on the Bond movies, no doubt.
I remember throwing together a Lazenby LTK poster a few years back and he didn't age well I'm afraid, lol
