In a poll to declare the best of Bond, Norwegian James Bond fans have spoken. Arranged by Den Norske James Bond-Klubben (the Norwegian James Bond Club) and www.jamesbond.no, the oldest and most comprehensive 007 fan site in Norway, voting commenced on 18 Februrary ended on 4 August 2017.

The cup system, based on that of the FIFA Football World Cup, attracted the participation of over one hundred of Norway’s most devoted 007 fans who analysed and discussed the merits of each and every Eon Bond movie. And the winner of the Norwegian James Bond Cup 2017 was a surprising entry.

For a period of six months, the Facebook Group of the Norwegian James Bond Club, showed their expertise, passion and knowledge with surveys and discussions. This has pleased the editors a lot and especially the two who initiated the cup, Joakim Rekaa and Arild Brøter. In a comment to FSWL they said:

"Throughout this Cup, fans have shown a lot of commitment and appreciation. They have also praised the concept with many wanting new polls on, among other things, best villains, soundtrack and Bond girl. As organizers, we are positive and do not rule out that we will return with a new poll in the future. Would like to thank everyone for the interest shown and all the grades."

In the big final, the two actors who have played James Bond most times met. Sean Connery's film Goldfinger (1964) against Roger Moore's film For Your Eyes Only (1981). And it was the movie claimed by many fans and critics as a "template" for the Bond series that won, Goldfinger directed by Guy Hamilton.

Editor's Note:
On Secret Majesty's Secret Service (1969) starring George Lazenby ended up on third place with From Russia with Love (1963) starring Sean Connery as number four on the list.
