James Bond woos a mob boss' daughter and goes undercover to uncover the true reason for Ernst Stavro Blofeld's allergy research in the Swiss Alps involving beautiful women from around the world. - vsuperkuns

George Lazenby steps into the role of James Bond and is sent on his first mission. For help with Marc-Ange Draco (Gabriele Ferzetti), he must become very close friends with his daughter, Teresa "Tracy" (Dame Diana Rigg), and heads off to hunt down Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Telly Savalas) 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 henchwoman, Irma Bunt (Ilse Steppat). What does Blofeld have in mind this time? Can Bond keep up this act for much longer? Are any Bond Girls safe? - simon

While on leave, British Agent James Bond 007 prevents a young woman, Teresa "Tracy" Draco (Dame Diana Rigg), from committing suicide. Her father is Marc-Ange Draco (Gabriele Ferzetti), the head of a powerful crime syndicate who is impressed by Bond and wants him to protect his daughter by marrying her. In exchange, he offers Bond information which will lead him to his archenemy Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Telly Savalas). At first, Bond agrees to the deal purely to fulfil his objective to kill Blofeld, but later he grows to love Tracy, but when the British learn that Blofeld plans to destroy mankind with a deadly virus, 007 is torn between his loyalty to his country and his intent to marry Tracy. - Dave Jenkins

George Lazenby's sole appearance as James Bond features some of the most exciting sequences than in the any other Bond movie. Bond's on the trail of S.P.E.C.T.R.E.'s leader, Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Telly Savalas). Blofeld's alpine headquarters is the setting of fantastic action and, ironically, where Bond is tempted by more lovely women than in any other Bond movie. - Tim Kretschmann

James Bond (George Lazenby) continues his mission to track down Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Telly Savalas), head of S.P.E.C.T.R.E. When Blofeld develops a lethal virus and threatens to unleash it upon the world unless he receives a pardon for all of his previous crimes, Bond needs to find a way to reach him and fast. He intends to marry into the biggest crime syndicate in the west in order to get information on Blofeld's whereabouts, and the trail eventually leads to a remote alpine institute in Switzerland. Blofeld's not as easy to kill as it might seem, and he has ways of dealing with people who cross him. - Graeme Roy

The most emotional adventure of his career begins for James Bond (George Lazenby) on a deserted beach where a young woman tries to drown herself. He rescues the girl and for his trouble, is attacked by two toughs, the women's bodyguards. It soon becomes much bigger for 007. The woman is Teresa "Tracy" Draco (Dame Diana Rigg); daughter of crime boss Marc-Ange Draco (Gabriele Ferzetti), who wants James to marry his wayward daughter, and in return, he can provide 007 with information on an even more dangerous criminal leader, Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Telly Savalas) of S.P.E.C.T.R.E. But James and Tracy find more than they bargained for when their paths collide in a vicious pursuit in the snow-capped mountains of Switzerland, an enormous avalanche, and a smuggling ring for germ warfare against the West by Blofeld, who proves to be most difficult to kill, and who exacts a revenge on Bond which he can never forget, nor forgive. - Michael Daly
