    I chose From Russia With Love. Story is far more reasonable.

    Even though I voted for Russia, that was a classic line.

    This is a real stylish movie all by itself, not a churn out from the 'Bond' mill. Believable action at a human scale, not the world threat formula yet. As for the Bond girl, she’s not just window dressing the film could do well without, but an essential part of the plot. Villains stick to memory: e.g. in the realistic fight in the Orient Express or Rosa Kleb with her shoes.
    ‘Goldfinger’ by contrast has far less taste and because of lack of character doesn’t leave such an impression.
    Yup for Jeroen!

    Great reasons. Good enough for me!

    I think Jeroen nailed my take on this competition. Robert Shaw as a bad guy, that's tough to beat.

    FRWL is the obvious choice here. More spies than three 'Casablancas' and a great plot, too. Not to mention the great Lotte Lenye as Rosa Kleb (now THAT's a kick in the pants!)

    Another Bond vs. Bond matchup. Russia for me. It does have the more believable and realistic plot.

    Goldfinger

    The powerful tycoon Auric Goldfinger has initiated "Operation Grand Slam," a cataclysmic scheme to raid Fort Knox and obliterate the world economy. James Bond, armed with his specially equipped Aston Martin (its accessory package includes built-in machine guns, a smoke screen and an ejector seat), must stop the plan by overcoming several outrageous adversaries. First there's Oddjob, the mute servant who kills at the toss of a lethal hat; next, the beautiful Jill Masterson, who gives new meaning to the phrase "golden girl"; and finally, sexy pilot Pussy Galore, whose romantic feelings for Bond complicate her involvement in Goldfinger's high-flying scheme.

    From Russia with Love

    James Bond willingly falls into an assassination ploy involving a naive Russian beauty in order to retrieve a Soviet encryption device that was stolen by SPECTRE.
