Quickly, What’s On Now?!? –SEAN CONNERY As JAMES BOND -007- In “YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE” (1967)

You Only Live Twice (1967)

I Consider…

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

(1967)

…To Be The Most Underrated Of The…

SEAN CONNERY As JAMES BOND

…Adventure Epics…

…And It’s A Damn Fine Adventure At That, My Peeps!

😀

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

…Was Directed By…

LEWIS GILBERT

…Whom Would Later Helm The JAMES BOND Adventures…

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

(1977)

…And…

MOONRAKER

(1979)

…Both Of Which Are Personal FAVES Of FAVES!

😀       😀

Alright, The Gist Of The Flick Is This:

The World Sits On The Brink Of WORLD WAR III.

An American Spacecraft Has Disappeared, Following An Encounter With An Unknown Spacecraft.

The Americans Are Blaming The Russians For Entire Incident.

(((Of Course They Are!)))

They (The Americans) Make It Known They’re Going To Launch Another Spacecraft In Just A Few Weeks.

If ANYTHING Happens To It, They Will Consider It An Act Of War!

The British Government, On The Other Hand, Does NOT Believe The Russians Are Responsible.

This, However, Must Be Proven Before Something Does Happen That Could Ignite The World Into Full-Scale Nuclear Armageddon!

Sooo…

…The British Government Fakes JAMES BOND‘s Death, Freeing Him To Go On The Hunt For The Truth.

They’re Sending BOND To Japan, Where They Believe The Before Mentioned “Unknown Spacecraft” Originated.

And Now, You Know The Basic Plot For This Epic Romp!

So, What’s Gonna Happen?

Did The Enemy Originate From Japan?

If So, Will BOND Be Able To Locate And Destroy Them In Time?

Or, Will The World Be Pushed Beyond Said Brink And Eventually Become A Giant Fireball In Space?

Hmm?

HMM?!?

Well…

…Wouldn’t Y’all Rather Watch It And Find-Out For Yourselves?!?

SURE YOU WOULD!!!

😉       😀       😉

I Will Tell You It’s A Helluva Ride, My Peeps, And A Helluva Lot Of Fun!!!

Some Of My Favorite Parts?!?

“LITTLE NELLY”

(((Trust Me, You'll Get It When You See It!)))

KEN ADAM‘s Eye-Popping Production Design.

NANCY SINATRA Beautifully Singing The Film’s Theme Song.

The Wonderfully Amazing VOLCANO LAYER.

But, Most Of All, My Favorite Part Is The Big Reveal Of JAMES BOND‘s Arch Enemy/Nemesis, “ERNST STAVRO BLOFELD“, Played To Creepy, Evil Perfection By An ALL-TIME FAVE Of FAVES Actor…

DONALD PLEASENCE

!!! !!!! !!!

😀

As I Said, I Consider This Flick…

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

…To Be The Most Underrated Of All Of The BOND Flicks To Star…

SEAN CONNERY

…And I Think You’ll Totally Understand Why Once You’ve Checked-It-Out.

Since We Only Live But Once, My Peeps, You Should Sincerely Check-Out…

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

…Before You Finally Just, Ya Know, Check-Out.

Period.

Happy Movie Watching, My Peeps!!!

ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK

…On The Ole MP3Player.

A Lot Of Folks Simply DO NOT Understand WHY I Like This Type Of Tunage.

For Me…

…It’s HIS VOICE.

I’m Of The School That Honestly

Truly

DEEPLY

Believe That…

ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK’s

The TOP 5 MALE VOCAL PERFORMANCES In MUSIC HISTORY.

.Period Period.

Every Single Time I Hear His Version…
