Sean Connery was was so sexy back in the day. I still have a crush on him in his prime and frankly find pleasure and experience joy in thinking about him! :wub:;)

Coincidentally, I rewatched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade last night. He was great as Henry Jones, Sr.

Cobblers. Far too Scottish. This truism should be challenged, it's received wisdom, and wrong.

The stories were better that's all.

007 is supposed to be English, it's almost the entire point.

Roger Moore had to endure utterly ludicrous plotlines.

If anything the best bond was Timothy Dalton.

Roger Moore was the best bond closely followed by Sean Connery.Timothy Dalton was a terrible James Bond with only George Lazenby surpassing his wooden acting.

I believe his demeanour was as close to the suave English gent as described by the author.As I said though Sean Connery was a close second in my view.Sean was incredible also.I had to watch all the bond films to make a judgement.

This post started off brilliantly but then tailed off badly at the start of the second sentence imo,

Dalton - English, decent stories (I'll accept the less than perfect acting, don't care)

Moore - Just the right amount of suave (camp even?) sadly let down by dreadful storylines (moonraker? Oh please)

Brosnan - Despite being Irish, at least didn't actually sound it.

Connery - Aided by the best scripts, the tightest direction and being the first. Not nearly as good as 'best bond ever' merchants  would have it.

Lazenby - crap

Craig - All semblance of tongue in cheek lost. Wooden actor, up himself. Drab stories.

Weirdly though Sean Connery was the greatest actor to play Bond in my view.Roger Moore was a decent actor but nothing special I just felt he fitted the character as Fleming spoke of better.Moore in my view though was a one trick pony he mastered the role of James Bond but I never cared for him as the saint particularly or any other role.

I always found Roger Moore unconvincing he had a  clumsy body type not that of a fighter

Fair point had forgotten about that film as I last saw it when I was 8 .An impressive performance by Moore. I will have watch it again this weekend to give you a considered verdict.

I always considered Flemings Bond as more slapstick than substance.I guess it is easier to portray that on a page without it looking slightly clumsy. Moore in my view simply exposed that flaw in the writing.

Dalton was far from terrible. He played the part with a greater sense of reality, only Craig has done that since. All others have played the part with a high degree of tongue in cheek. Nothing wrong in that at all but comparing Moore with Dalton, as an example, is like trying to compare that 60s abortion Casino Royale with Skyfall.

Aye, Skyfall's no a patch on that Casino Royale.

 

Look, the goal was open... :lol:

 

 

Though tbh I find the Craig films to mostly be snoozefests with crap villains.
