Rare OHMSS Screen Test Photos Unearthed

In honor of On Her Majesty's Secret Service's 40th anniversary, Life.com has posted a selection of rare, previously unpublished, photographs taken for Life magazine during the pre-production of the first non-Sean Connery James Bond film. These photos, by Loomis Dean, show the top five contenders for the coveted 007 role, taken during their screen tests for director Peter Hunt.

We all know that George Lazenby won the part, but this is a fascinating look at the other men who might have been Bond, James Bond: John Richardson (pictured above with Hunt and an unnamed actress), Anthony Rogers, Robert Campbell, and Hans de Vries.

Excellent contribution.
Undoubtedly, Lazenby was the best.
