Title: Things you're stuck with
Post by: KSM on July 19, 2018, 09:39:39 PM
I used to be a 007 fanatic (Connery and Moore only) I've had this mint condition VHS collection in the back of a closet for about 16 years now. I've tried to sell them but of course that was fruitless. I seems I can't even give them away but at the same time, I wouldn't just give them away.

So I guess, I'm stuck with this collection that will remain in the back of the hall closet. They still have that brand new VHS movie in the box smell too. Alas..

Hmm, perhaps this would have been better placed in the collectibles and collections thread that I just realized existed.


My bad :P

LOL.  I have that, the DVD collection and now all of the Bond Blu-rays.   I'm not buying them again.  I like all the Bonds but Connery and Moore were the ones I liked best.  Though the Lazenby effort is one of my favorites too.

I've got to ask;

Favorite Connery and favorite Moore film and what is you all time favorite Bond song?


Connery; Russia With Love ( or Thunderball)

Moore; The Spy Who etc.

Song; Nobody does it better.

Noory once said he's seen them all and watches them.  Weird that I only heard him mention it one time

Song; Nobody does it better.

Connery:  From Russia With Love (or Goldfinger)

Moore:  Live And Let Die (Young Jane Seymour (pant) and great McCartney song)

Song: At the moment We Have All The Time in the World from OHMSS.  Goldfinger, Thunderball and Live and Let Die are my other favorite themes. Nobody Does It Better probably comes after those for me.

Best Blofeld:  Donald Pleasence though I like Telly too.

Best Bond Girl: Jane Seymour and Daniela Bianchi.

Worst Bond Girl: Jill St. John

I donated my vhs collection to a womans shelter 3 years ago. Not many people were interested and I did not want to bin them so I was happy to find a willing taker.

Nice of you! However, woman are for the most part (with the exception of Bond girls in the movies) not the least bit interested in Bond, James Bond.

No David Niven? A stranger take but was awesome. And he was a great actor and great interviewee on talk shows. Apparently Ian himself wanted Niven.

I have a large collection of VHS anime.  They were all in good condition.  Since no one wanted them, I ended up donating most of them to Goodwill. I no longer have a VHS player but I still kept my Record of Lodoss Wars and Zenki mainly for sentimental reasons, my first anime purchases.
