The first of the Bond movies self-consciously to flout the tendency of some commentators to tsk-tsk about the sex and violence of the series, and the first of them to exhibit a formidable degree of self-assurance about establishing a separate identity from the Bond books. Aside from all that, and in spite of some good gadgetry, the good titular villain, an even better henchman called Oddjob, and a good theme song sung by Shirley Bassey, it is not quite the apex of the 007 series that a number of aficionados have claimed it is. Sean Connery, Honor Blackman, Shirley Eaton, Gert Frobe; directed by Guy Hamilton. (1964) — Duncan Shepherd
