And the scene where he tells an Indian tiger "Sit!", and it immediately does...Ohh, the humor.

I don't remember that moment. Probably just as well.

Still not as bad as Bond's escape from menacing alligators and crocodiles in "Live and Let Die" (1973).

When the Blu-rays first came out, I remember watching going back through the whole series to watch the making-of featurettes--
Apparently, the Croc-step took five takes for the stuntman to film.  Even worse, the crocs had no idea what was happening at first, but by the fifth take, they were starting to catch on...It just adds to the drama that they were ready for him.  🐊

It's definitely one of the best of the series, although admittedly I have not seen any of the last 4 films in the series. Saw the first 20 over a few months back in 2010, and at the time, I found Goldfinger to be the best, followed by The Living Daylights, You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, and For Your Eyes Only.
