When depicting the route that Lazenby's ship takes from Australia to England, around the 26:20 minute mark, the country of Sri Lanka is shown in the wrong place. In actuality, Sri Lanka lies below India, and not to it's side in the Bay of Bengal, as depicted in the map. See more »


Himself - James Bond: It's very hard for people to understand, but living life on your own terms, in your own way, you feel like it's much fuller. The best thing you can do is know yourself, and feel yourself, and be yourself. Yeah, I may not be great, but I'm an original.

A hilarious and touching story
4 October 2017 | by BryGuySaysHiSee all my reviews

Watched this late at night expecting fully to fall asleep halfway through. Well that didn't happen. Ended up watching the whole thing! The re-enactments of his story was very well done and had the perfect touch of comedy to it that made it hilarious. It wasn't over the top hilarious, but just enough to keep you interested in the story. His life was also rather interesting to hear about. There were so many things that I never knew about him. This exceeded my expectations and so therefore, I'm giving it a 10. One of the most entertaining Biography's I have seen. This is a must see for any James Bond fan.
