Every aficionado has his favourite James Bond actor : mine is definetely Sean Connery – the tough guy, his machismo ready beneath the polished persona.
Did you know, that every actor who auditions for the Bond must always perform a scene from From Russia With Love, where he hears a noise and investigates, only to discover a beautiful stranger on his bed.
My dear, uncooperative Domino.
There is now a lively debate on the best Bond movie ever, with most major film critics giving the top mark to either “From Russia with Love” (Connery’s favourite, as he re-asserted in a 2002 ABC interview with Sam Donaldson) or its brassy follow-up, Goldfinger.
Some reviewers have also warmed to “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” – it might have been the best Bond film ever had Connery appeared in it. I’ve tried to transform the Bond and its manors to the next level : 2007, the year of 007, despite of the first screenshots and the terrible face of Daniel Craig. Listen to Golden Eye by Tina Turner and take a look at the milo version of James Bond.
