Storyline

George Lazenby steps into the role of James Bond and is sent on his first mission. For help with Draco, he must become very close friends with his daughter, Tracy, and heads off to hunt down Ernst Stavro Blofeld one more time. This takes him to Switzerland, where he must pose as Sir Hilary Bray to find out the secret plan of Blofeld. The facility is covered with Blofeld's guards as well as his hench-woman, Irma Bunt. What has Blofeld got in mind this time? Can Bond keep up this act for much longer? Are ANY Bond girls safe? Written by simon

Trivia

Largely a result of Bond's being recast, the first movie in the series to make extensive use of in jokes and tongue in cheek humor. The film also depicted scenes where Bond encountered and worked with a "Harem" of women. All of these would become trademarks of most of Roger Moore's Bond films. See more »

Goofs

When Bond is first summoned from the dinner to meet with Blofeld in his office, Gruther assists him in putting on his overcoat. Bond puts both arms in the sleeves but when he arrives at the office he is wearing the coat draped over his shoulders as can clearly be seen as Grunther slips it off. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Q: I've been saying for years, sir, that our special equipment is obsolete. And now, computer analysis reveals an entirely new approach: miniaturization. For instance, radioactive lint. When placed in an opponent's pockets, the anti-personnel and location fix seems fairly obvious.
M: What we want is a location fix on 007.

OHMSS is a very good action packed Bond film with a great ending!
20 January 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

George Lazenby played a very good James Bond and its a shame he didn't play the role anymore. OHMSS is a very good 007 film that is filled with lots of realistic fights. I just couldn't believe the ending of the film. I was really surprised. Telly Savales played Blofeld very good but his Blofeld was much different that the late great Donald Plesence's Blofeld. If you like James Bond I think you'll like this one a lot!
