On Her Majesty’s Secret Service [1969]

If I had to choose the best Bond movie ever made, I would definitely pick “On Her majesty’s secret service”. I love this movie, and even though it was the first non Sean Connery Bond film, I still think it’s the best one yet. Georges Lazenby is good as 007 (though he never played the role again), but the story and the action scenes are incredible! What’s more, this is probably the first and last Bond flick (until “Casino Royal” at least) that delivers an emotional ending. Some 007 fans argue which Blofeld was the best; I’ll go with Telly Savalas; his performance in this movie is simply unforgettable. Highlight: the ski chase scene (Reprised years later in “The Spy Who Loved Me”).

Fun fact:  A Rolex worn by George Lazenby drew a bid of $40,373 at Christie’s in London in 2003.

 Rating: 3.5/4
