Sean Connery casts a long shadow over the James Bond legacy. He created the movie persona and starred in six of the first seven features, all but establishing the cool cold warrior as the world's most suave secret agent. The six titles in MGM's third collection celebrate the Connery Bond with three of his classics, including From Russia with Love, 007's second and perhaps finest outing. A blond, buff Robert Shaw plays Bond's most ruthless nemesis, and Lotte Lenya and the great Pedro Armindáriz costar in this sleek, high-energy trip through the Iron Curtain. Connery travels to the Far East in You Only Live Twice, which introduces the international criminal conspiracy SPECTRE and its cat-loving mastermind, Blofeld (Donald Pleasence). After a brief retirement, Connery returned for Diamonds Are Forever, his final "official" appearance in the Bond series (15 years later he played Bond for a rival studio's Never Say Never Again). This more tongue-in-cheek adventure takes 007 to Las Vegas, where he battles Blofeld (this time played by Charles Gray) and his minions--namely, a pair of fey, sardonic henchmen and a team of bikini-clad karate killers.

Octopussy, a colorful cold war thriller and one of Roger Moore's better Bond outings, stars Louis Jourdan as a corrupt Afghan prince and Maud Adams (making her second Bond appearance) as the ringmaster of an all-babe traveling circus team that unknowingly carries a nuclear bomb. Christopher Walken hams it up under a platinum-blond hairdo while his Amazon bodyguard, Grace Jones, growls through A View to a Kill, a silly but often visually impressive adventure that made it obvious Moore was too old and stiff to carry on the Bond legacy. The torch was passed to Timothy Dalton in The Living Daylights, an attempt to clear away the camp elements of Moore's portrayal and return to a lean, hard-edged spy thriller for the post-cold war era. It lacks the larger-than-life characters and spectacle of previous Bond pictures, but Dalton was a tough, ruthless 007 and a worthy inheritor of the legacy, which was then passed on to Pierce Brosnan.

The DVD editions of the films each feature audio commentary by the director and key members of the crew, "making of" documentaries, and a host of stills, TV spots, trailers, and other supplements. --Sean Axmaker

1.0 out of 5 stars Defective DVDs being sold by MGM! November 21, 2000
Format:DVD
Bond Set 3 and Never Say Never Again DVD Problems The Bond Volume 3 has "The Living Daylights" and "Octopussy" on recall. For those that got it early call MGM at 1-877-646-4968 1-877-MGM-4YOU Email MGM 4you@mgm.com Attn: Carrie Smith and she will send you the UPS label and information about shipping them back to MGM in Santa Monica, CA. Include your name, address, phone number and where you purchased them at. O.K. folks A lot of questions have come up regarding the flawed bond DVD's. I will try an re-cap the information with specific flaws so that you know if your copy is one of them. The DVD's in question are Never Say Never Again, Octopussy, and The Living Dayligts. As of right now all of these DVD's are missing elements of the movie. Never Say Never Again (Missing scene) Towards the end of Chapter 19 Bond has the bouncer hold the cigar case in the closet. Chapter 20 Bond is walking and ready to sit down and play largo in the video game. There is scene between these two that shows bond after leaving the bouncer in the closet he walks around the casino and drops the bouncers gun in an ice bucket, then he sees Domino playing video games and says his famous line"My Name Is Bond, James Bond". Then Bond and Domino sit down and have drinks. After that largo comes over. This entire scene is missing. The Living Daylights (Subtitles Missing) The subtitles that are missing are NOT the ones that can be selected with your DVD players, such as Spanish, French or German. The sub-titles that are missing are the ones that are a part of the actual movie in order to let you know whats going on such as a location("Bratislava") or a time frame ("6 Months later").

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fully Loaded DVD Package !! November 24, 2000
Format:DVD
Another great job by the folks at MGM! Not only do we get 6 James Bond movies, but we get 6 DVD's loaded with tons of extra goodies. Most Bond fans are probably familiar with the films themselves, so I'll comment mostly on the extra features.
Each individual film features a highly informative "behind the scenes" documentary which includes interviews with principal film and crew members. Bond fans will be fascinated as the secrets behind many of the series' best known stunts are revealed. For example, there is a riveting sequence on "Inside A View to a Kill" in which stuntmen give us an inside look at how they accomplished the very dramatic and dangerous leap from the Eiffel Tower. Really good stuff!
In addition to the "behind the scenes" sagas, each disc also features an additional documentary. The topics covered are: Producer Harry Saltzman (on From Russia with Love disc), the brilliant James Bond Title Sequences (You Only Live Twice disc), Producer Cubby Broccoli (Diamonds Are Forever), Set Designer Peter Lamont(Octopussy), Bond Creator Ian Fleming (The Living Daylights) and The Music of James Bond (View to a Kill). Again, I found each documentary to be most enlightening and entertaining. In fact, I'd venture to say these extras alone make this package worthwhile. But, wait there's more....
Each disc includes a feature length audio commentary which consists of interviews with directors, cast and crew. The only dissapointment among the bunch was the commentary of "From Russia with Love" in which commentators seem to ramble endlessly about topics not related to the film.
You'll also get to view numerous trailers for each film.

4.0 out of 5 stars The collection completed July 27, 2000
By Simon
Format:VHS Tape
Finally, the last six James Bond movies have been re-released (or will be re-released rather) on VHS and enhanced DVD. This set includes The Living Daylights, Diamonds Are Forever, You Only Live Twice, From Russia With Love, Octopussy, and A View to a Kill. Unfortunately, this set is perhaps the weakest one of the three gift sets. While From Russia With Love is generally regarded as a Bond classic, the other five titles are hit-or-miss (either you'll love it or you'll hate it). The Living Daylights is a great spy story, but some fans hate Dalton's Bond. Similarly, Connery is a fan favorite but YOLT and Diamonds are lackluster to some in terms of his acting ability and plotline. If you're a genuine Bond fan, by all means grab this set, each of these films is worth viewing at least once (and the DVD's throw in great extras, I'm told). Casual fans wanting a guaranteed thrill should just get From Russia with love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bond Set #3 Is Shakin', Not Stirred August 5, 2000
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So, finally the last of the James Bond movies arrive on DVD. And you get quite a variety, including 3 Sean Connery outings (the last set only had 1 and the first had 2 by Sean). From Russia With Love is the best of the 3. The Bond film made just before Goldfinger gives us a James Bond who's not use to having gadgets around to save his neck every time he gets in a jam. Robert Shaw stands out as the evil henchmen (like Oddjob) working for SPECTRE in is sure to be remembered as one of the greatest train fights in history. You Only Live Twice pits Bond against SPECTRE again, who this time are trying to start WWIII by stealing U.S. and Soviet space vehicles and making it look like the other country is responsible. Bond gets married to a Japanese woman (but only for undercover purposes) and the two track down the secret volcano lair of Blofeld (Austin Powers got many of it's ideas from this bond film including Dr. Evil's face job, taken right from Donald Pleasance's Blofeld here. After You Only Live Twice, Sean Connery decided he'd had enough of playing 007 and decided not to star in the next film, On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Many diehard Bond fans like myself feel that if he had taken the part, this would have been the most successful Bond film of it's generation. But oddly enough, the producers were able to persuade Sean to come back an do one more Bond, Diamonds Are Forever. It would be the first Bond shot in the 70's, with 007 doing what he does best, mixing it up with the baddies and indulging himself with the ladies. Don't miss the classic fight between him and Bambi and Thumper. Read more ›
