    Are the new 4k versions only available on iTunes? Would prefer to use VUDU.

    I don’t recall Lowry running 4k in 2004.

    This thread got me to pop in the blu and revisist Moonraker but I couldn’t even finish it this time. One of the main reasons was Lois Chiles’ performance. It was like she didn’t even want to be there. Boredom oozed out of her pores. Not that it was a role you could do much with, but that’s all the more reason to bring some extra personality to the table.

    Only on iTunes. With abundant extras too. The Vudu streams are HDX only with zero extras.

    Aside from Jane Seymour, the women in the 70s Bonds were all pretty terrible. It couldn't have been that difficult to find someone who both looked good and could act.

    I do believe you have overlooked Corinne Clery.

    She was dubbed - which they would have been wise to do to some of the others.

    I like Britt Ekland and Jill St. John.
    Barbara Bach was great too.

    Maybe for Bond 25?

    Newmar would’ve been in her 40s in the 70s??

    I know that for spy they tried to get a big name but her price was much too high.

    I agree on holly goodhead not being my favorite, but for the most part I like the 70s Bond girls.

    I think Newmar would have made a great Tiffany Case, and she'd have been around 37 at the time of filming, still younger than Connery.

    They spent $14 million on Spy - they couldn't have anted up another $500 000? I wonder if the "big name" was Faye Dunaway. She was reportedly considered as far back as Thunderball, and as late as Octopussy. She would have been great as Octopussy.

    Dunaway was a bit older too. I honestly don’t know her films that well.

    This discussion reminds me of the Bond 50 Blu Ray set ad with the “lesser known Bond girls”
