Fresh from his success with Michael Caine in Alfie, Lewis Gilbert directed Sean Connery’s superspy as he teams up with the Japanese Secret Service to stop a series of space hijackings and the dastardly doings of Donald Pleasance’s Blofeld – arguably the ultimate Bond villain. The opening notes of Nancy’s Sinatra’s title song make for the most recognisable Bond motif of all. And as if that weren’t enough, Barry rises magnificently to the task of scoring the scenes in outer space.

Contains outdated racial stereotypes.
