Handwritten note by the second "James Bond"
Autograph Note signed: "To Kenny/Best/George Lazenby", 5x3 card. Australian-born actor George Lazenby (b. 1939) was Europe's top male model (1964-1968) when he was tapped to play the Ian Fleming character in 1968. Despite having no previous acting experience except commercials (Lazenby was Europe's Marlboro Man) and a bit part in the 1965 film, Espionage in Tangiers, Lazenby was given a contract to appear in several Bond features, but he bowed out after his first and only Bond film. The youngest actor (at age 30) to play the role, Lazenby was later considered to play Bond for the 1983 film, Never Say Never Again, but he was dropped from consideration when Sean Connery agreed to star in the film. Lazenby's other film credits include Universal Soldier (1971), The Man From Hong Kong (1975), The Kentucky Fried Movie (1977), Saint Jack (1979), several Emmanuelle films (1992), Spider's Web (2001) and Winter Break (2003). He has also appeared in a number of made-for-TV movies, starred on the TV series, Rituals (1984-1985), and made guest starring appearances on several TV shows. Although reviews for Lazenby's performance as Bond were mixed at the time - he was Sean Connery's first replacement and the only non-Brit ever to play the role- the years have been kind to the film, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, and Lazenby is well received at Bond events. Lightly toned. Ink note and pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
