model George Lazenby took up the mantle of the world's most suave
secret agent when Sean Connery retired as James Bond—prematurely, it
turned out. Connery returned in Diamonds Are Forever before leaving the
role to Roger Moore, and Lazenby's subsequent career fizzled, yet this
one-hit wonder is responsible for one of the best Bond films. In On Her Majesty's Secret Service,
007 leaves the Service to privately pursue his SPECTRE nemesis Blofeld
(played this time by Telly Savalas), whose latest master plan threatens
the world's crops with agricultural sterilisation. Bond teams up with
smooth international crime-lord Draco (Gabriele Ferzetti) and falls in
love with—and marries—his elegant daughter, Tracy (Diana Rigg). Bond
monogamous? Not at first; after all he has Blofeld's harem to seduce.
Lazenby hasn't the intensity of Connery but he has fun with his quips
and even lampoons the Bond image in a playful pre-credits sequence.
Rigg, fresh from playing sexy Emma Peel in The Avengers,
matches 007 in every way. Former editor Peter Hunt makes a strong
directorial debut, deftly handling the elaborate action sequences with
a kinetic finesse and a dash of humour. Though not a hit on its
original release, On Her Majesty's Secret Service has become a fan favourite and the closest the series has come to capturing the spirit of Ian Fleming's books.

one-and-only, guided by the 13-year-old granddaughter of her best pal
Roz. When Doris begins showing up at John’s regular haunts, she wins
over his Williamsburg friends. Her new life brings Doris a thrilling
perspective, but also creates a rift between her and her longtime
friends and family, who believe she’s making a fool of herself over a
guy half her age. Eager for all the experiences she has missed out on,
