The film was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Barbara Carrera for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture but she lost out to Cher for Silkwood (1983). Carrera is the only ever actress to be nominated for portraying a Bond Girl at the Golden Globes with no actress ever nominated for playing a Bond Girl at the Oscars. See more »

This film is supose to be so bad, I never rented it for years. I sure was wrong, I gave it a 6, when I heard this movie was a 3. James Bond comming out of traing to the live field is a ok concept. The film is on a lower budget, but they did well with what they have. This film shows how good of an actor Sean Connery is. Bronson with three time the budget never gets across in the mannor, or humor which Connery can. Connery makes this movie worth watching he adds so much to the scenes; when he gets into a fight he gives it Bond magic. Connery delivers a one liner in a James Bond way. He maybe old, but there was still some gas in the tank.
