Happy 59th Birthday to Timothy Dalton...

Here's to Mr. Dalton, who, as all good Jabootuites know, sang perhaps the most magical duet in movie history with his and Mae West's rendition of 'Love Will Keep Us Together' in Sextette.

Meanwhile, and with all due bowing in Mr. Connery's direction, Dalton remains in many ways my favorite James Bond. Sorry you never got a really good scipt, Tim, but you'll always have a place in some of our hearts.

To be fair, I thought that The Living Daylights wasn't a bad film, certainly better than some of the dross that Roger Moore produced. Licence to Kill was an interesting experiment as well, ultimately I'd rather watch a Dalton film over Diamonds are Forever or The Man with the Golden Gun any day.

I thought Dalton was a fairly good Bond (especially when he was "this time it's personal" Bond in License to Kill, which none of the previous Bond would have been able to pull off), except for one thing: He seemed like SUCH a sincere, focused guy that I always expected him to still be with the girl from the end of the last movie at the start of the next one.
