Lazenby brings OHMSS down a notch or two, but not enough for FRWL to overtake it in my mind.
From Russia With Love - 6
On Her Majesty's Secret Service - 3
I'll pick OHMSS.
Mods, could we add a poll to this please?
FRWL is a superb Cold War thriller and yes, the helicopter and boat chase were rather gratuituous. The climax was the showdown between Bond and Grant and the movie could have picked up with the scene in Venice when Rosa KIebb gets hers.
that said it is still a good movie.
I agree and I love the soundtrack and the snow scenes are beautiful. It was the first Bond film to feature ski chases, all other films with ski scenes pall in comparison to OHMSS. The character driven love story and the way Tracy 's character is developed, another first. And the downbeat ending makes it an all time classic.
I rank OHMSS above all Bond films.
BTW could someone add a poll for this?
On the whole though, OHMSS is just more exciting, and has a great story arc full of emotion. I, like others above do have a problem with the gratuitous helicopter/boat chases at the end of FRWL, which does take the wind out of the plot a bit for me. It's not bad by any means, but the movie could have been a lot leaner without it.
