James Bond in the Sixties (Poll Results)

Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll based around James Bond in the sixties. I am surprised and thrilled to see that I am not the only one who considers On Her Majesty’s Secret Service to be among the great Bond films, as it did indeed finish number one. I would have ranked Thunderball much higher but otherwise the results are pretty spot-on with my tastes. Thanks again to those who participated and here are the final results:

On Her Majesty's Secret Service 48 (44%)
Goldfinger 46 (42%)
From Russia With Love 40 (37%)
Dr. No 36 (33%)
Thunderball 33 (30%)
You Only Live Twice 27 (25%)
Casino Royale 26 (24%)

I've nver understood the Love for OHMSS. It has some good action scenes and Diana Rigg, but George Lazenby is a complete stiff as Bond.And the whole sequence on the mountain top with all the young girls falling all over him is silly. He's dressed as such a square I remember the audience laughing at his wardrobe in the theater. This was back at it's original release, it's not a matter of his clothes being dated now, they were unhip then. Otherwise the films lined up as I would expect.

I'm not surprised by the results at all. I recently watched OHMSS again. I was reminded of how much I love this film. While it wasn't perfect, none of the Bond films are. I thought both Lazenby and Rigg were terrific. I really wished he would have done a few more 007 films. I was sad when the movie was over. The music in the film was also outstanding.
