YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE
1967, MGM Repertory, 117 min, Dir: Lewis Gilbert
Director Lewis Gilbert directs the fifth movie starring Sean Connery as 007. To give Bond a headstart on the opposition, his death is faked. He’s then sent to Japan to honcho Tetsuro Tanba and operatives Mie Hama and Akiko Wakabayashi (two of Toho Studios’ most charismatic contract actresses of the era). With a script by Roald Dahl.
ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE
1969, MGM Repertory, 140 min, UK, Dir: Peter Hunt
When Sean Connery decided to take a hiatus from the role of Bond, producers Albert Broccoli and Harry Saltzman turned to former male model George Lazenby to play Ian Fleming’s super-spy - and wound up with one of the most satisfying (and underrated) of the 1960s Bond films. Lovely Diana Rigg proves more than Bond’s match as the two team up to topple scar-faced Ernst Blofeld (Telly Savalas) in the Swiss Alps.
