Big thumbs up on that J$. I think we might be launching a new topic here...Who's Your Favorite Spy? Well, I'll be the 1st one to throw my hat into the ring....I'm partial to the black spy in Mad Magazine's SPY VS. SPY. James Bond runs a close 2nd (Sean Connery Bond of course).



i reiterate emma peel as the best spy of all time.

for the men's team, i would have to nominate john drake/danger man/secret agent/the prisoner.



close second, buddy spy team ~ the 'i spy'
lads.

As soon as I saw this topic, Ms. Peel was the first name in my head.

Or perhaps Madam Yes.

Ooh! Ooh! Spy stuff! Nerd-alicious! O.K. if we accept that John Drake was actually the guy who turned up in the village in The Prisoner, then in a philosophical sense he sums up the whole 60's spy experience for everyone because he represented the everyman and his struggle to exist as an individual... which I suppose is at the root of the whole paranoid fantasy thing that is the 60's spy experience.

If we're picking the favorite character Mine is top professional, John Steed. (Emma was only a talented amateur) Did you know he throunced James Bond back at Eton when they were school boys? Apparently James was a bully who used to make the underclassmen stir his hot chocolate against their wills. (Hope that isn't some kind of euphemism!)

For sheer enjoyment my votes go to Maxwell Smart and Lancelot Link just because.

Emma and I have a special relationship so just back off buddy!

But if you're really bored.....check out my web site:
www.spyboproyale.com for more information about music from 60's spy flicks than you EVER wanted to know!

Be Seeing You!

I agree. Now I know how to spell Modesty Blaise! Who did that song "the female of the species is deadlier than the male"? I think it was the Squirrel Nut Zipppers.

I can't believe that no one has mentioned Derek Flint (as played by James Coburn) from "In Like Flint" and "Our Man Flint."
That character and those movies are a classic!

On TV: Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.



In movies, my fave is Dean Martin as Matt Helm, followed a close second by James Coburn as Flint.

I love James Coburn too!

Also, aside from them all I always liked the The Saint.

Pretty much the same ones that're mentioned already, with a few additions:

I'll always have a soft spot in my head for Joanna Lumley, as Purdey in the New Avengers:



Sean Connery as 007, of course, but who's your #2 Bond? I liked George Lazenby in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" (a movie that also included Diana Rigg & Joanna Lumley).

That was Mr. Lazenby:



But Mr. Connery wore 1 to be knighted (KBE):
