This is an improvement on Ian Fleming's novel, with Christopher Lee making a fine villain, sporting a golden gun, a third nipple and a tiny henchman called Nick Nack, who's wittily played by Herve Villechaize. Britt Ekland is funny, too, sending herself up as Bond's clueless assistant and surviving the most sexist scene in the entire 007 series: "Forgive me darling, your turn will come," Roger Moore assures her after he's dallied with Maud Adams. The use of the old Cunard liner
is clever, but there are major faults as well - notably the repeat of the pre-credit scene for the climax (borrowing from Orson Welles's
The Lady from Shanghai
) and the return of redneck sheriff Clifton James from
Live and Let Die
. Thailand's Phang-Nga Bay was a stunning choice of location, though it was soon to become a tourist trap.
James Bond's investigation into the death of a world-renowned scientist working on solar technology draws him into a battle of wits with a stealthy assassin, who dispatches his victims with a golden bullet and has the British secret agent next in his sights. Spy adventure, starring Roger Moore, Christopher Lee, Britt Ekland and Maud Adams.
