You Only Live Twice
You Only Live Twice.
The fifth film (1967) in the long-running series of James Bond films based on the secret agent novels of Ian Fleming (1906–64). Scripted by Roald Dahl and starring Sean Connery as Bond, the film derived its title from the proverbial tag ‘you only live once’, as used in a Fritz Lang crime thriller as early as 1937. It is justified within the script by Bond faking his own death and then reappearing to thwart the plans of arch-villain Blofeld, played in this instance by Donald Pleasence.
