* Number 13 (1922) - Never finished or released. I don't understand why it has an IMDb page. You can even vote for it! * The Mountain Eagle (1926) - A lost film. * Elstree Calling (1930) - Hitchcock is listed as directing "some sketches" for this. I won't bother seeing this one. * Mary (1931) - The German version of Murder! I'm unlikely to bother seeing this one since the two movies are exactly the same except for a different language and different actors.
A few titles of note I nearly added to this list before narrowing down the focus. * Casino Royale (1954 TV episode) - The character is Americanized and dubbed Jimmy Bond. Nothing spectacular but it's worth watching once if only to see Peter Lorre as a Bond villain. * Casino Royale (1967) - In this spoof, David Niven plays a retired James Bond who is succeeded as Bond by Peter Sellers. And Ursula Andress. And Daliah Lavi. And Terence Cooper. Also, Woody Allen plays his son Jimmy Bond and a bunch of celebrities make cameos. Guaranteed comedy gold? Think again. Comedy movies from the 1960s are typically awful and this was no exception. * OK Connery (1967) - Another not particularly good spoof from 1967, but I think this one is worth seeing. It doesn't feature James Bond, but Bond series alums Bernard Lee (M), Lois Maxwell (Miss Moneypenny), Daniela Bianchi (Tatiana Romanova), Adolfo Celi (Largo), and Anthony Dawson (Professor Dent) star in the movie. Oh, and Sean Connery's brother.
Briefly, how I rank the actors who have played James Bond. 1) Sean Connery - Obviously. I only fault him for returning for Diamonds Are Forever. The only actor to portray Bond who remained a star post-Bond. 2) Roger Moore - Too much of a clown in the role for my taste, but the 1970s movies are fun to watch with their own unique style. He should have bowed out after the unfairly maligned Moonraker. 3) Timothy Dalton - The 1980s movies as a whole are quite bland and generic. I liked him in the role and I wish he had taken over earlier in the decade - he might have saved it. 4) George Lazenby - In a sense he was a real life James Bond who made his acting debut as Bond. It's a shame he quit the role after just one movie. 5) Pierce Brosnan - The Bond I grew up with so I have a bit of a soft spot for two of his movies. But he was miscast. He's not man enough for the role, thus the over-compensating by mowing down bad guys like Rambo (his average kill count is 34 per movie, nearly double second place). 6) Daniel Craig - Perfect... henchman. The series went from the Scarlet Pimpernel to a meat-headed roid rager, two extremes that do not make for a good Bond.
