I mostly kid. I actually like that movie as well, for whatever reason it appears really old visually but maybe that’s because all the action scenes are on the mountain compared to tropical settings etc. George Lazenby just didn’t “feel” like bond to me the way Connery and Craig make it seem natural. The same way I just loathe Timothy Dalton as Bond.Really? I know Lazenby was only in the one Bond movie but I thought his performance was sensational. I thought On Her Majesty's Secret Service story line, settings in the Swiss Alps and Portugal, supporting cast Telly Savalas as Blofeld) and the pretty Contessa Teresa leading lady etc... were all great. It's probably my favorite Bond film and I have seen them all.
Apparently Lazenby (who took the role after Sean Connery said 5 Bond films was enough for him), stated right from the start of filming that he would only do one James Bond film.
