I hadn't seen On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) since the summer circa 1987 when my brother and I went to Video Station and rented a new James Bond movie every day or two. And, frankly, I wasn't remembering a bit of it until Bond put on his kilt and wandered into the dinner party at about the 1/3rd mark. Which is weird, because this is the movie that opens with Diana Rigg, an actress so associated with Avengers and other work that I'd forgotten she was ever a Bond girl. Maybe THE Bond girl, depending on your definition.
What I had known for years was the following:
- This was the one starring George Lazenby, the man who was not asked back
- People really, really seem to like this one, or at least refer to it a lot
- Connery still came back for a couple more of these
