OHMSS because he actually spies properly in it, using proper espionage techniques.
LtK is probably the only other one where this happens.

I am fond of FYEO but I have to admit it has some major flaws. It's the one that's closest in tone to OHMSS.

But then what do YOU mean by "definitive"? Do you mean "close to the spirit of the books", or......WHAT?

Best performance as bond - Dalton
Best film, Casino Royale (not the spoof :-) )
Favourite bond film Live and Let Die for comedy or either FRWL or Thunderball for action.

Worst - the remake of Thunderball, Never Say Never Again

Dr No every time as it contains the best Bond line ever.

Just after the famous scene as Ursula Andress gets out of the water.

Ursula: What are you doing here, looking for shells?
Sean: No, i'm just looking.

With you on OHMSS, also being old enough to have seen it when released on the big screen it was captivating, easy to forget the effect of only seeing these older ones on TV screens.

In reply to The Lemming: Have to admit, I liked Daniel Craig's first outing best of all the Bond film.

It's the way he does his first kill........ completely cold, utter bastard. What Bond is supposed to be in my opinion.

Another vote for Dr No..it's got everything, hot female lead, loads of cool gadgets, top one-liners and an evil arch criminal meglomaniac on a desert island ;-)

I did not see the original cinema release due to not having been born at the time, but I was lucky enough to get to see it on the big screen about 8 years ago and it was fab.
Mind you my only big-screen Bond experiences have been Licence to Kill through to TWINE (skipped DAD as it looked so awful, saw it on telly later) and the two Daniel Craig ones.

Speaking of which, a lot of people hold Casino Royale in high esteem but I think it is actually very dull. Craig and Green are fab, and Craig's characterisation is good, and I enjoyed it at the cinema, but whenever I get a chance to watch it again, I think to myself "what are the classic scenes in this film that I will enjoy rewatching", and there are none, really. It lacks wit, tension and - yes - ACTION (most Bond films are essentially 5 to 7 big action set pieces strung together with some plot exposition scenes; CR has the "free-running" chase at the start and the frankly dull Venice house-collapse at the end, and very little in between, save for a minute of bog-standard thuggery on a stairwell and a car crash. It has a very long card game though!) :-)

Arrghhh, No, no!! To the right, to the right"

Lines don't get much better than that.
