If Connery had not done a second Bond he would still be better than Brosnan.
OHMSS is a great Bond film due to the story and script, not beacuse Lazenby was anything special. He was an ok stand in for Sean, who did well with the emotional scenes.
Agree. OHMSS without Lazenby would still have been an exceptional film under the stewardship of Hunt. OHMSS without Hunt could have been a dud.
But Lazenby was not just a stand-in. He did very well, because OHMSS could have been "destroyed" with the wrong actor.
Pretty sure there has. I seem to remember Young being way out in front.
Exactly. Well said. The critical factor would have been getting Hunt back to make the proper revenge sequel that was needed.
Not sure so much about Cambell.
As I said before, GE and CR are so wildly different in terms of quality that it's almost as if they are different directors. GE just looks so awful as well - it looks more like a naff 80s movie than the ones actually made in the 80s. Only TND in the Brosnan era has much visual flair IMO. The TWINE Bilbao scene is nice but apart from that it's pretty poor.
Keep it about Lazenby and DAF. This isn't a Brosnan bashing thread okay?
It would have been very interesting to see a Hunt-directed DAF. Would Savalas have returned? Would Bunt (unfortunately the role would have to be recast) be in the movie too? And Hunt's take on Wint and Kidd would also have been interesting; I'll bet they would have been more Bunt-like than the campy characters we got.
My attempt to see what the gunbarrel could've looked.
