Sean Connery leads the fourth James Bond film in the franchise, which relocates 007 to The Bahamas to thwart an extortion scheme and recover two nuclear warheads from the clutches of eye-patched SPECTRE agent Emilio Largo. James also flies a jetpack and battles scuba divers in his undies. Co-stars Claudine Auger as ‘Bond Girl’ Domino.

There's visible evidence that the reported $5.5 million budget was no mere publicity figure; it's posh all the way.

The fourth Bond, marking the point at which spectacular hardware began to dominate the series. Sleek and quite fun all the same.

The color is handsome. The scenery in the Bahamas is an irresistible lure. Even the violence is funny. That's the best I can say for a Bond film.
