James Bond Octopussy TV4 17 december kl. 23.00.
Mission A power hungry Soviet general plots to oust the American military forces from Europe by detonating a nuclear weapon in West Germany and laying the blame on the United States. To stop him, Bond forms an unlikely alliance with an international jewel smuggler – the mysterious and beautiful Octopussy.
Bond returns for a sleeker, more entertaining film with Roger Moore at the helm for a sixth time. Threats of his resignation from the role had proved groundless as Moore signed on the dotted line. The usual production crew was back for another crack at Bond suggesting at some continuity. This would only partly be the case – the resultant cash was not far diminished from the previous film, the resultant film, however, would return to the mould of The Spy Who Loved Me and even Goldfinger. Decadence allied with competence – but was this James Bond’s real all time high?
