You Only Live Twice

When an American space capsule vanishes, the Soviets are immediately suspected, and when a Soviet craft similarly vanishes, both sides are pushed to the brink of imminent disaster. Discovering a suspicious crash off the coast of Japan, MI6 sends in their most valued agent into the Land of the Rising Sun where he must not only must adapt Japanese culture, but also actually become Japanese, train as a ninja, and infiltrate Blofeld's volcanic lair to prevent the onset of WWIII! "You Only Live Twice" is a lame and exceedingly bizarre Bond installment. With a script by Roald Dahl (?!), and one of the last films to feature Connery, it is barely credible  as camp, let alone a top spy picture.
