  1. This is also one of the definitive Bond features and another Connery vehicle fondly remembered by the fans. I never forgot what I once read about the actor barely escaping a shark attack in a pool that was used for one of the film’s most well-known set pieces. Danny Peary made a valid criticism, saying the film takes forever to get started, but once it does, you’re hooked.

  2. Not one of my favorites, but I have to admit I liked it a lot better this time around than I have previously and I did love it when I was a kid. From a purely physical standpoint, Domino is one of my favorite Bond women.

    I think adjusted for inflation, this remains the all time highest grossing Bond flick.
