    That would obviously be George Lazenby j/k :D Actually, I would rank his co-star Diana Rigg as my favorite Bond girl of all time. FWIW, this vid ranks them in the following order:
    1) Connery
    2) Craig
    3) Moore
    4) Brosnan
    5) Dalton
    6) Lazenby
    My list would be the same except I'd have Connery and Moore tied at #1.

    LOL at how this topic went off reservation - Oregon drivers and water bottle throwing to comparing the various James Bonds! :D

    I've been a Bond fan for as long as I can remember. I don't have the gadgets, couldn't get the girls, and can't afford the vehicles so I had to live vicariously through Messrs Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan, and Craig - I've enjoyed and liked them all (well, Never Say Never Again maybe wasn't all that great lol).

    I got to meet George Lazenby once in the early 90's at the shop I was working at - jaw jacked with him about all sorts of stuff from Bond to Bikes for maybe a half an hour. He is/was an avid motorcyclist. Seemed to me to be a super nice, down to earth guy. They recently made a movie about him - Becoming Bond on Hulu.

    Agreed - but it did have Kim Basinger and a few good moments:


    That's cool that you got to meet Lazenby - despite his poor acting ability OHMSS is still one of my favorite Bond movies. In addition to having Diana Rigg it also had my all time favorite Bond car, the red convertible '69 Mercury Cougar 428 Cobra Jet. I had a blue '70 for many years but it had the 351 Cleveland instead.

    I had an Explorer with the 351 Cleveland. I think it thought gas was bought at 1972 prices..;)
