Connery's fantastic acting and good looks saved Thunderball from being a terrible film instead of a mediocre one.

I think I get what you are saying, but that sentence doesn't make sense.  ajb007/wink


I can imagine Roger in OHMSS, Connery in LALD, Dalton in FYEO and AVTAK, Pierce in Spectre…but this list reflects the films that the actor was perfectly suited for the role and no one else could have pulled it off.

Connery - DN and FRWL   (Dr. No is my fav)

Moore - TSWLM, MR, and OP (but especially TSWLM which is my fav)

Dalton - LTK (also my fav)

Brosnan - GE and TND  (GE is my fav by a small margin)

Craig - QoS  (SP is my fav)

"Like any great artist, I want to create an undisputed masterpiece in my lifetime."

1. MR 2. TSWLM 3. GE 4. TND 5. DN 6. GF 7. TWINE 8.OP 9. AVTAK 10. TMWTGG 11. LTK

Re: Best actor-film combination

Awesome idea! Here's my list:

Connery-FRWL (FRWL)
Moore-OP (TSWLM)
Dalton-LTK (LTK)
Brosnan-GE (GE)
Craig-SF (SF)

Didn't realize that my favorite film from each actor would end up being the same as the one I think is the best actor-film combination. I guess that means my taste in bond films is largely defined by how much I enjoy the performance of the actor.

One of the reasons that I like DAF is mainly because of SC's performance. His lines and some of the sequences are just brilliant, and always makes me smile! But the film has a few other things going for it as well including the score

On the other hand, I like PB's performance in GE and DAD but don't rate those films high relatively speaking. I do enjoy them on their day

Then there is OHMSS where I find GL's performance to be candid. OHMSS is among my highly rated films so it could be that I automatically like GL's performance because of that

This is a good exercise to get insights on our tastes which at first may appear random or unrelated
