James Bond (George Lazenby) woos a mob boss’ daughter and goes undercover to uncover the true reason for Ernst Stavro Blofeld’s (Telly Savalas’) allergy
research in the Swiss Alps that involves beautiful women from around the world.
I am a James Bond fanatic. I own all the films on video. During my film school days, I sponsored a "James Bond" film fest. I told my wife she MUST be a James Bond fan before we could marry. I introduced her to the films and she is now a Bond fan.
My favorite Bond will always be Sean Connery.
My favorite film will always be "On Her Majesty’s Secret Service".
"That film with that Australian actor as Bond? Telly Savalas as Blofeld?"
That’s the usual reaction I get when I mention that. But this film has a lot going for it. When Connery left the series before this film began production, the film’s producer, Albert Broccoli, knew he was in trouble. The next film could make or break the future of the Bond films.
He knew he couldn’t get anyone remotely close to Connery as a new Bond. So he found an unknown, George Lazenby, to play the role. Broccoli knew this film would sink or swim on its assets: the plot, special effects, gadgets, the Bond girls, the music, battle scenes, and the locations.
Boy did he succeed! This film has the BEST of all of the above! The plot is the standout. While James Bond, master spy and savior of the world, battles the forces of evil, he also shows us he is human by falling in love with Diana Rigg (a great choice for a Bond film!).
Many people have passed over this film because it doesn’t have a Bond named Connery, Moore, or Brosnan. Lazenby does a decent job as Bond but lacks the refinement and polish of the others. Still, watch this film and imagine what Sean, Roger, or Pierce could have done with the role. It ranks with any of their best Bond roles and stands as the best film of the whole lot.
