'O.H.M.S.S.' ranks in favourite festive movie poll

02-Dec-2011 • Bond News

The sixth James Bond film, "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" starring one-time 007 George Lazenby, has appeared in a Radio Times poll to find the nation's favourite movies that are set at Christmas time. Although set at that time of the year, it is not really seen as a 'Christmas' movie to the general public, so its inclusion was a surprise.

The other 007 adventure to feature Christmas, "The World Is Not Enough", did not make the top 50.
