This was the first Bond film without Sean Connery, but ably deputised by George Lazenby with the added attraction of the wonderful Diana Rigg. After being passed over for an assignment 007 hands his notice in, but agrees to think it over on holiday. Instead, he takes it on himself to locate and eliminate his old adversary Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Telly Savalas), catching up with him in a secret SPECTRE hideout in the Alps.

SPECTRE have trained and despatched a team of ( as usual drop-dead gorgeous ) girls world-wide who are each carrying a deadly virus with the usual intention of global blackmail.

Having wrecked his plans but seeing him escape yet again, Bond decides to get married to the heroine, Tracy ( played by Diana Rigg - pictured ) but she, and their happiness, are short-lived as Blofeld extracts his fatal revenge on the newly-weds.
