‘You Only Live Twice’ – an incredulous plot but an influential Bond film

You Only Live Twice

Directed by Lewis Gilbert

Written by Roald Dahl

1967, UK

Easily the most parodied of all the James Bond films, You Only Live Twice is the fourth film starring Sean Connery as 007.  After five years portraying the secret agent, it took producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman (as well as an increased fee) to persuade Connery to become Bond once more, before the five-year hiatus before his last official outing, Diamonds Are Forever.

You Only Live Twice is a completely different story in comparison to Ian Fleming’s original novel, as the film sees numerous manned spacecraft disappearing from orbit, with Russia and USA blaming each other during the Cold War.  After faking his death, Bond travels to Japan to join forces with Japanese Secret Service to investigate and meets the head of Spectre, Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
