DAMN THE DEFIANT!
H.M.S. DEFIANT
2014, Sony Repertory, 101 min, UK, Dir: Lewis Gilbert

In this rousing British action film, Alec Guinness plays Captain Crawford, the commander of a warship who clashes with his sadistic first officer - a deliciously evil and sadistic Dirk Bogarde. When tensions between the men - and their subordinates - lead to mutiny, Crawford is forced to choose between duty and ethics in an effort to restore justice.


MOONRAKER
1979, MGM/Park Circus, 126 min, UK, Dir: Lewis Gilbert

James Bond goes to space in his 11th outing, which stars Roger Moore as Bond and the gorgeous Lois Chiles as his love interest. Richard Kiel is back from THE SPY WHO LOVED ME as imposing villain Jaws, and production designer Ken Adam’s spectacular sets make this one of the most visually striking films in the series.


THE SPY WHO LOVED ME
1977, Park Circus/MGM, 125 min, UK, Dir: Lewis Gilbert

Easily the best of the 1970s Bond films, SPY stars the impeccable Roger Moore as 007, teaming with icy Russian agent Barbara Bach to thwart underwater kingpin Curt Jurgens and his lethal arsenal - including metal-toothed hitman Jaws (Richard Kiel) and femme fatale Naomi (Caroline Munro). Terrific stunts, a sharp, witty script by Christopher Wood and sexy, world-saving adventure courtesy of Moore & Co. Everything a Bond film should be.
