I voted for Young, though I've seen no evidence of his directing magic outside of Bond. Conversely, Gilbert has made some fine films, but his work for EON is undistinguished.

EDIT: usual appalling typing

Hunt. Way too many cool stylistic touches in OHMSS for me not to pick him. And he understood Bond just as much as Young.

Indeed. Not only did he understand it, but he had a literary passion for it greater than perhaps any of the other directors I would say. Plus he had the advantage of working through the ranks and 5 movies to hone his vision and craft. His tenure (along with Lazenby's) being kept to one film is the biggest tragedy in the history of the franchise imho.

Respect chap! I went for Hunt also...

Young seemed to get disinterested towards the end. Hunt was more enthusiastic during the duration of his Bond career...

Agreed. I'd happily put it in my top 20 films. And Hepburn is amazing.

Thought I'd pump out a list.

1. Young
2. Hunt
3. Spottiswoode
4. Glen
5. Apted
6. Gilbert
7. Mendes
8. Campbell
9. Hamilton
10. Tamahori
11. Foster

Campbell would probably be last if it wasn't for GE. While I prefer GE to SF, I dislike CR more than I dislike SP, hence the placement. The Mendes to Hamilton section is because the three of them all did one exceptional Bond film and at least one very flawed one.

I wish Hunt accepted one of Cubby's many offers and returned to shoot another. While I love FYEO, if Hunt was available and directed it, it could have been my favourite overall.
