On Her Majesty's Secrete Service

As the Quantum of Solace's November 14th US premier marches closer, my mind turns to James Bond, the hero of my childhood. On Her Majesty's Secrete Service, the only film to star Gorge Lazenby, is often overlooked by fans of the franchise. The film is one of me and my brother's favorites. Although the late sixties aesthetic and Jame's marriage to the daughter of a crime boss erodes some of the "James Bond" ethos, the film's absurd premise of brainwashed beauties living in isolation on top of the Swiss Alps curbs all naysayers.
