On Her Majesty's Secret Service 10/10 - believable, great fights, wonderful atmosphere, good cast... If Connery was in it would be the best ever.
I question that assessment; Connery was a little less than enthusiastic in YOLT, and was only there for the money for DAF, so I find it hard to believe that he would have turned it around for OHMSS. Just my 2 on the subject, anyway.
I'd go further, I think Connery might have actually ruined the film. The film hangs on believing Bond loves Tracy, in fact I'd go as far as saying the film hangs on the final scene. For all his faults Lazenby plays it perfectly, I just can't see Connery's Bond being that broken over the death of a woman, he's just not vulnerable enough.
