A fake Fabergé egg and a fellow agent's death lead James Bond to uncover an international jewel-smuggling operation, headed by the mysterious Octopussy, being used to disguise a nuclear attack on N.A.T.O. forces.
A vengeful British spy goes rogue and sets off to unleash vengeance on a drug lord who tortured his best friend, a C.I.A. agent, and left him for dead and murdered his bride after he helped capture him.
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
The revolving restaurant shown in the movie (on the mountain called Schilthorn above Muerren, Switzerland) has monitors which play continuous loops of the ski scenes featuring the location. See more »

I've been saying for years, sir, that our special equipment is obsolete.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.
What we want is a location fix on 007.

This James Bond movie was pretty good. Lazenby is no Connery but surprisingly does fine here. Peter Hunt did a very good part in introducing Lazenby before the theme is played. The theme itself by the master John Barry is one of the best in the series. Lazenby also handles the fighting scenes well even though these scenes at times feel a little choppy. He also did a great job with the final scene. Having said that I'm happy that he did not do more James Bond movies despite originally being signed up for 7 JB movies. It was great seeing Connery in the next movie even though he looked older than his years & Moore's portrayal as JB was refreshing. What is sad is that Lazenby did not get many offers after this movie. He was supposed to have done a movie with Bruce Lee but Lee died & prevented this from happening. Now Lazenby says that if he had to de-do things he would have liked to have done another JB movie. I'm not sure that this would have helped his acting career since he would have still broken his contract with Broccoli. He should have done like Connery, asked for producers to finance movies that he played in.
