Reviews of Topaz (1969) and related work

Topaz (1969Moving picture, 143 minutes)

Alfred Hitchcock (director).

George Lazenby as James Bond. Pretty much doomed. No celebrities, but no good actors either, with the exception of Browne. A mostly silly story saved by a few set pieces. The Swedish Russian sounds funny, if nothing else.
