George who? During the filming of You Only Live Twice, Sean Connery announced his retirement from the role of British Secret Service Agent, James Bond 007. He had had enough of the role and wanted to do other projects. So as pre-production began on On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, the call was put out. Hundreds, if not thousands, auctioned for the lead role and if wasn’t until an Australian model by the name of George Lazenby, walked through the door, that the producers found their man.

Before the review begins, allow me to tell a little story. You Only Live Twice was one the first James Bond films I ever remember watching in full. I feel it only fair I relive my memory. I remember in 1999 in the months leading up to The World Is Not Enough cinema release, all the James Bond films were being rereleased on VHS. Yes, I know VHS. DVD wasn’t as big at the time but it was beginning to take off. There I was on my lunch break from work looking at the wall of all James Bond films. The two that stuck out most were The Spy Who Loved Me and You Only Live Twice.
