What? Lazenby left on his own accord due to bad advice. He wasn't fired and like I said, there was another actor who had actually been signed on to replace lazenby but Conery decided to do it, purely for financial reasons and the guy who was contracted to take over laz stil got paid but just never made the movie. Lazenby was never ever the problem. OHMSS still was financially a suceess but not the huge financial sucess the films were used to. Also, bare in mind if there was a problem it was because of the type of film OHMSS was. It was and probably still is the most romantic Bond film ever made, which was a far cry in departure from the films that came before it. That is why DAF is the comical mess it is as opposed to picking up and maintaining the same or similar tone of OHMSS.
I didnt said Lazenby was fired. I said he couldnt meet the expectations. And thats a failure.
