On Her Majesty’s Secret Service


(out of 5)

Excellent Bond adventure stars  in his only outing as the dashing 007. After saving a beautiful young woman ( of The Avengers) from committing suicide, James Bond is asked by her crime-lord father () to marry her in order to keep her safe from harm. At first, Bond agrees only as an excuse to get closer to the evil Blofeld, whom he plans on taking out once and for all, but eventually he finds himself growing truly fond of the young woman. The thrilling action sequences in this film are among the film’s best, and the plot moves along quite steadily without bogging down for a moment. Lazenby isn’t as effortlessly dashing as Sean Connery was, but he holds his own in the role and would have done fine had he been given more opportunities to play the part. Look for a very young  as a Bond girl.
