One of my favorite James Bond films is On Her Majesty's Secret Service. This 1969 movie was the only one to star George Lazenby as 007. I've seen so much mixed reaction over the years about Lazenby and this film in general. Personally I love it. I think it would have been hard for any man to step into the shoes of Sean Connery. It didn't matter who the actor would have been. I thought Lazenby did a good job though. I loved the chemistry between him and Diana Rigg (who played Tracy, the woman Bond fell in love with and married). Telly Savalas is my favorite actor to have played archvillain Blofeld. The setting for the movie was so beautiful. I really enjoyed both the ski chase and car chase sequeneces. I also loved the music for the movie, whether it was the instrumental theme song or the love theme by Louis Armstrong. Here are some photos from this Bond movie. Have any of you ever seen it? If so, do you like it or not? Let me know what you think.
P.S. The James Bond poll is now closed. And the winner is ...? Sean Connery! I don't think that would be any surprise to anybody. It sure wasn't to me.
Here are the results:
Sean Connery (53% with 24 votes), Daniel Craig (15% with 7 votes), Roger Moore (11% with 5 votes), Pierce Brosnan (11% with 5 votes), Timothy Dalton (4% with 2 votes) & George Lazenby (4% with 2 votes).
Sean Connery was an overwhelming winner. Daniel Craig as in second place. Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan tied. Timothy Dalton and George Lazenby tied for last place.
