Re: Favourite Bond films....

Agreed. Connery remains my favourite Bond, but OHMSS wouldn't have been anywhere near as good with him, IMO - particularly if he'd offered the kind of performance he turned in in You Only Live Twice. And much as I like him in the role, I doubt he could have credibly conveyed the vulnerability necessary for Bond throughout the movie. I reckon Lazenby got it just right; given everything that went before it, Connery simply wouldn't have been believable in OHMSS.
