If any James Bond yarn is a cult film, it's this one, so divided have fans and critics been since its release back in 1969 when producers turned to little-known Australian actor George Lazenby to take over from Sean Connery as Britain's finest secret agent. Critics at the time were a tad underwhelmed, with the inexperienced Lazenby taking much of the blame, but he acquits himself well and certainly looks the part. Irrespective of his shortcomings - and who wouldn't have them compared to Connery - the sixth outing for 007 is a magnificently memorable adventure that sees Bond out to stop the dispersal of a killer virus by a bevy of beauties brainwashed by Telly Savalas's villainous Blofeld. The script throws up superb action sequences, nerve-frazzling suspense and breathtaking locations, and takes 007 to places he's never been before emotionally. Add the perfect heroine in Diana Rigg (fresh from playing Mrs Peel in TV's
) as a wilful mobster's daughter who's every bit the suave spy's equal in spirit, bravery and fighting chops; one of John Barry's most evocative scores; and the incomparable Louis Armstrong singing
We've Got All the Time in the World
, and you have an adventure that's right up there with the best of the franchise.
James Bond is sent on a mission to track down master criminal and arch-enemy Blofeld, who is intent on destroying world peace by means of a lethal virus unless he receives an international amnesty for his crimes. Spy adventure, starring George Lazenby in his only outing as 007, alongside Telly Savalas, Diana Rigg and Gabrielle Ferzetti.
