James Bond Double Feature and a discussion between films with actor George Lazenby, moderated by our friend Steve Rubin (author of The Complete James Bond Movie Encyclopedia).

On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)
1969, MGM Repertory, 140 min, UK, Director: Peter Hunt

When Sean Connery decided to take a hiatus from the role of Bond, producers Albert Broccoli and Harry Saltzman turned to former male model George Lazenby to play Ian Fleming’s super-spy - and wound up with one of the most satisfying (and underrated) of the 1960s Bond films. Lovely Diana Rigg proves more than Bond’s match as the two team up to topple scar-faced Ernst Blofeld (Telly Savalas) in the Swiss Alps.

Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
1971, MGM Repertory, 120 min, UK, Director: Guy Hamilton

James Bond (Sean Connery returning to the role after a one film hiatus) goes from Amsterdam to Las Vegas on the track of missing diamonds and encounters his arch-nemeis, Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Charles Gray) along the way.
