I read a first draft of TND once and it was just terrible, very un-Bond like. Thankfully the higher powers changed it considerably.

Has anyone ever read the third Dalton film which has been named by fans as Property Of A Lady? It's got all sorts of elements. I just wonder about it's quality. I'd love to run an article on it sometime.

I LOVE GoldenEye (my fav PB film) so I can't say it's better, just different. The philosophy behind the script is totally different. It's very much a continuation of the Dalton Bond series. We have an intense, hard-edged and very serious Bond, but France gives the film scale and the highly imaginative action sequences that were missing from LTK. In my opinion, they got it just right and it would have been the best of the Dalton films by far.

Is it better though than the GoldenEye that we all know and love?
The GoldenEye we know and love is very much about re-discovering the classic James Bond. It's a story which, at its core, is about James Bond finding his place in the modern world. "For England James." "No, for me." Like I said, a different philosophy.

It's a little hard to explain, but when you read it you just picture Dalton in your head. Bond is very serious and intense... He's somewhere between TLD and LTK. Very little humor or one-liners which you don't miss. I also think Pushkin is a major character. It's a VERY good script, much different from what GoldenEye became.

Can you explain why Zencat? I've never had the pleasure or reading the draft or a treatment or anything so I have no idea about the scripts elements.

But Dalton did also give a gritty realisim to OO7, which is a good change sometimes.

I'd love to have seen him film Kingsley Amis's "Colonel Sun" as his third movie.

I also agree about Dalton, though Brosnan has turned out better than I ever expected (and what I expected was another Roger Moore). I think if Dalton had the benefit of scripts as sharp as Brosnan's...
The way I understand it, the script for TLD was already written with Moore in mind, before it was announced that Dalton was to take over.
A few minor changes would have been rewritten to accommodate Dalton's style, but it was much better that LTK, which would have been written purely with Dalton in mind.
