a report about On Her Majesty’s Secret Service by me
I watched the seventh James Bond film. It is called “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”. I guess Sean Connery was on vacation so this time James Bond looks like George Lazenby.
In this film Ernst Stravo Blofeld is angry because he has no more number friends so he opens a ski lodge. At the ski lodge he is training women from many countries to be brainwashed. James Bond comes to visit the ski lodge so Ernst Stravo Blofeld locks James Bond in the mechanical control room for the ski lodge gondola. James Bond escapes and so James Bond and Ernst Stravo Blofeld do lots of skiing to avoid explosions.
Ernst Stravo Blofeld is a slower skier and so James Bond makes friends in a barn with Contessa Teresa di Vicenzo. James Bond and Contessa Teresa di Vicenzo are super friends so they want to get married.
James Bond and Ernst Stravo Blofeld go bobsledding to see who has the best moves. Ernst Stravo Blofeld loses at bobsledding and the prize for that is getting caught in a tree by the neck. James Bond wins at bobsledding and the prize for that is after the wedding Ernst Stravo Blofeld kills Contessa Teresa Bond by a drive-by shooting.
That seems to me like everyone loses. At the end James Bond gets super sad.
I hope Ernst Stravo Blofeld learned that killing people doesn’t mean feeling better about losing at bobsledding but that part of the moral or lesson is not revealed in the film. Also, this doesn’t earn more number friends I bet.
We recently watched “Skyfall”. Let me know if you want me to do a guest post.
