Its a shame Lazenby didn't do Diamonds. Would have been nice to see him go after Blofeld (even if it wasn't the same Blofeld ) As it is we had to wait for Rog to get revenge for Tracy!
It's interesting because I think the whole Bond/Vesper dynamic from Casino Royale is reminiscent of the whole Bond/Tracy dynamic in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. I always wanted to see a sequel to OHMSS where Lazenby's Bond went after Blofed for revenge, but we kind of got that sequel, albeit spiritually, with Quantum of Solace. That may be part of the reason why I like it so much.
I totally agree. My wife only saw OHMSS after she'd seen CR and she thought it quite reminiscent of Craig's debut.

Craig is a much more capable actor than Lazenby of course and captures the emotion much better. Having said that, I like the scene in OHMSS where Bond is being pursued in the village and then bumps into Tracy. George ably conveys the requisite fear, then relief.
