Lazenby is a hard one to define, especialy seeing as we have only one performance to see where he was going. In my opinion he definately had Connery's sexual swagger and physical presense. Pierce is more lean whereas George & Connery are muscular. Lazenby's acting chops at the time gave him an openess and sincerity to his perfomance which I found true to the situations and events of the script. The last scene is an absolute killer. To have Bond weep for his bride is increadibly hard to pull off. Would Connery been able to do it?...we will never know. It's a shame Lazenby isn't considered when people talk about Bond in the same way as praise is given to Connery & Moore. It's interesting to think what parts of Lazenby's performance influenced Brosnan because he most certainly worked in elements and flavours from Connery, Moore & Dalton. Can people see a George influence?
