Olivier he ain't. But your reaction to Lazenby is pretty much mine to Dalton. I never believed for a second he could be James Bond. Everyone talks about how he's the closest to Fleming's Bond, but he wasn't playing Fleming's Bond. His films were still in the mold of the Connery Bond, and I just couldn't accept him as that character. He was good at the gritty, but seemed uncomfortable with the girls, quips and gadgets.
Had he gotten to star in a faithful adaption of "Casino Royale," maybe I'd feel differently. Hopefully, Daniel Craig will deliver the goods.
