One of my favorite Bond films ever. Yes, the one with George Lazenby. But look at this thing. The iconic ski sequence, Diana Rigg as Bond's wife, Telly Savalas with real presence as Blofeld, that genius bobsleigh chase (one of my favorite action scenes in anything ever), and the ending is shocking and incredibly touching. TOUCHING! How many Bond films can we say that about? And Lazenby isn't a problem for me because you know what? I don't think I would have believed Connery's Bond falling in love. That guy was such a bastard with women that I would have always assumed it was some kind of trick. What's distracting about the actor changes (yes, plural) is how to place OHMSS in continuity. They rather stress the fact that it's the same Bond as Connery's in the teaser, the opening sequence, and a scene featuring "souvenirs" from the other movies. But then, he and Blofeld don't recognize each other despite having come face to face in You Only Live Twice! Well, afterwards, I put my mind to it and decided OHMSS takes place between Thunderball and YOLT, as there's no souvenir for the latter movie. SOLVED! NEXT!
The ending added a lot of depth to Bond.
Diana Rigg might be my favorite Bond Girl in the entire franchise.
