George Lazenby. For most, that name will mean nothing, but Bond fans and trivia aficionados alike will recognize him as the infamous "one-time Bond". A unique documentary/narrative hybrid chronicling the stranger-than-fiction true story of George Lazenby, a poor Australian car mechanic who, through an unbelievable set of circumstances, landed the role of James Bond in 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' (1969), despite having never acted a day in his life. Then after being offered the next six Bond films and a $1 million signing bonus, he turned it all down...
An outrageous - but true - story
- Becoming Bond review by IanF
I much enjoyed this film - much more than I expected. At the time he was Bond there were rumours, its good to get the unbelievable truth after all these years.

Surprisingly Interesting and Entertaining!
- Becoming Bond review by EJ
This is a gem - wasn’t too sure at first, but it soon became irresistible watching. I’ve always thought George Lazenby’s Bond to be the best portrayal of this character and the film script and acting one of quality. The negative rumours why George Lazenby wasn’t cast again are put to rest in this. It is a shame he chose not to continue, but kind of understandable when you get to hear him tell all. Watch and enjoy; adults only though!
