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.

Obviously we don't know whether he would or not, and I'm thinking "Connery at his best" would have made the perfect OHMSS - but we should also bear in mind that a lot of why he's so dull in YOLT is down to the punishing levels of press and fan intrusion while filming that movie in Tokyo, with hordes of J-paparrazi even following him into the toilets. That'd put anybody off their best.
