First, the good; there's no Bond like Sean and these transfers are stunning. The color is a little over saturated, but probably true to the Technicolor palette of the early 1960's. The crisp images with a total lack "fly specking" are remarkable. They advertise these as state of the art restorations and if these first three are any indication, they've broken the code on how to transfer older film onto digital media. Now, the bad news; there's only three films on 6 discs, one for each movie and one for the "extras" for each movie. Additionally, they've gooberd up the intros with a whole batch of adverts and way too many alternates before you get to the start. However, once the opening credits end you're transported back to a pre Vietnam 1962 where everybody assumed spies traveled the world knocking off bad guys and no one gave a whit about any perceived moral implications. I might add in defense of the "intro" extravaganza that the 1960's were the film birthing of the iconic opening credits for a great many films; the Pink Panther* series is cited as just one example.

The first two Bond films weren't considered campy by the standards of the day and many people assumed this stuff actually happened. Ian Fleming's first Bond book, "Casino Royale", had been out since 1952 and the literary fiction of the day was rife with spy stories of all stripes. But by 1964's "Goldfinger" they were off and running on a 6 decade romp that would test the believability of even the most die hard fan. No matter, the audience loved this stuff and the producer's set out to make each new film as fantastic as possible.

Undeniably, though some will argue the point, Sean Connery is the best Bond of all time. Countless polls continue to rank him as number one! He was the orginator of the role when the late Albert Brocolli & his then partner, the late Harry Saltzman started producing the Bond films almost 50 years ago! How time flies!
This volume set contains in chronological release order Dr. No, From Russia With Love & Goldfinger. It is a 6 disc set which mirrors the ultimate editions which were released on dvd years ago. Therefore, the Special Features should be identical without the inclusion or deletion of any previously released material.
For those of us on a budget this year & must scale down the amount of purchases, this is of great value. Also it gives the potential buyer the option to buy exactly what he or she wishes, without buying every volume scheduled for release.
Highly recommended for any & all Bond fans!

How can you go wrong with the original James Bond? This is a collection of the finest beginning movies that Sean Connery did. Dr. No, From Russia,with Love and Goldfinger. I bought this to add to my already existing collection so that I could watch these movies when I'm feeling nostalgic. Most of the time I am feeling this way because now I am retired, living alone and need the diversion of some really great entertainment. You won't go wrong ordering this DVD Movie collection.

I don't usually review DVD sets, but thought I'd mention a few things. First off, yes, you're getting the 2-disc Ultimate Edition version of each movie, which is great. The arrangement is a little strange though, with the first and last discs snapped to the front and back of the case (respectively) and the rest in a hinged flipper thing in the middle. I find that to fully reattach the first and last discs, I have to press on the outside of the case, which tends to leave a mark on the outer sleeve. Finally, there's no booklet included, so you won't know what the chapters are or what's on each disc until you pop them in.

Don't let this dissuade you from buying these sets. This is the first (possibly only) time you'll be able to get the Connery Bond movies by themselves, in attractive packaging to boot. And the transfers are amazing!

Back in the 1960's when I was a young film buff and James Bond fanatic, you could not legally own a movie, except for those excerpts of about 12 minutes in length produced by companies like Castle Films whose selections were pretty good, but primarily limited to films from the '30s and '40s. Bond movies were never available in that format, and until 1964's "Goldfinger" made its world television premiere on The ABC Sunday Night Movie in September 1972, the only way to see 007 was in the theater when the films were re-released in double feature packages. Even now, more than 30 years after the home video revolution, I'm amazed that I can now own these movies. It's far more mind-boggling than anything to come out of Q's laboratory. This particular set, collecting the first three Bond films starring Sean Connery, is a steal.

"Dr. No," "From Russia With Love," and "Goldfinger" are all presented in beautifully remastered editions. The movies are a bargain at this price, but you get even more: each movie has an additional disc of special features, the highlight being an excellent documentary by John Cork that takes you "Inside" the film in question. These docs are worth the price on their own and give you the history of each film from pre-production to release. There are also trailers, including those for the various reissues, TV spots, documentaries made while the films were in production, and poster galleries. At this price - six discs for only 20 bucks - you simply can't beat it.
