A Valuable "Lost" Performance Of Lois Maxwell and Desmond Llewelyan
12 July 2014 | by (Morristown, NJ) – See all my reviews

I couldn't disagree more with the previous reviewer. For one thing, he needs to remember that back then, a clip show like this was pretty much your only way to see the great moments of previous Bond films in that long ago age when you couldn't own your own copy of the film. So the special has to be seen for what it was in an era we can't comprehend today. But the real joy of this program is seeing the new wraparound material of Lois Maxwell as Miss Moneypenny and Desmond Llewelyan as Q as they set up the clips. As these two people appeared in more Bond films than anyone else and whose continuity from one era to the next always acted as a comfortable anchor for the series as Connery gave way to Moore (with Llewelyan enduring all the way to the Brosnan era), it's precious to see new material of them in these beloved roles. Lois gets more to do here than she did in the series collectively and Llewelyan gets a chance to rail about the damage done to his precious gadgets in the previous films, and they both manage to make it natural extensions of how they played the characters in the film. The one thing we could have done without was the silly bit about the unknown actress who wants to become Mrs. Bond. This was a leftover gimmick from when "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" was going to be the next film until it was decided to reverse the sequence.

Give this a look in the Blu-Ray supplements and skip through the clips if you must but enjoy the new material with two old and familiar friends who are dearly missed by all Bond fans.
