On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Bond globe trots on the sly to determine the true reason behind Blofeld's involvement in a seemingly above board business venture (do these movies really need plot descriptions?). In his only outing as 007, George Lazenby leaves a lot to be desired in a performance that seems to be a Connery sendup and little more. Diana Rigg is a weak Bond girl and Telly Savalas makes an effective villain. Much silliness ensues intermingled with some impressive chase sequences.
