    Ah, the wife beating thing. That might be the answer to my long-standing question as to why SNL portrays him as they do on their SNL Jeopardy skits, which I LOVE but never quite understood. If you haven't watched them, you owe it to yourself. You have to watch about 3 before you start to get the in-joke that is his constant beratement of "Trebek" (Will Ferrell).

    I did not know that and will have to check out the movie, again. My fave as 007 were Connery and Craig.

    Vale Sean Connery, the original and the best Bond... early films were pretty close to Fleming's books.

    So many iconic scenes, but It was this one in Thunderball that got me interested in pneumatic spearguns.
    I have a Technisub Jaguar, but sadly it did not come with the very lovely Claudine Auger :wink:

    Nah, Roger Moore was the best Bond ever. See below...

    Ok, actually Roger Moore was not the best Bond ever, but my first fond memory of a James Bond movie was "For Your Eyes Only." So yeah, the biologists got it right with the imprinting thing! :D

    RIP Sean Connery

    I always liked Bond's underwater breathing device

    Connery will always be Bond for me, but my favorite Connery movies were The Untouchables, The Rock, and Entrapment. I also liked Medicine Man and First Knight a ton. I had a really hard time with it when it came out that he hit women and thought that it could be justified.

    There should have been only one, but this deserves an exception.

    Some of us consider that to be exactly the problem.
