I think I've said this on here before, but OHMSS sucked because he basically ran away for the whole movie, he'd met Blofeld in the previous one and somehow was trying to trick him he was someone else, and Lazenby was a bit of a plastic-haired wimp.
If I recall correctly, Bond poses as someone else to draw Blofeld out of Switzerland to arrest him, by saying that his title as count is questionable. He also had to act like a sexually inept prude, like the guy he was trying to pretend so that Blofeld wouldn't suspect anything... oddly enough.
Anyhow, certain things are quirky about the plot. Obviously, the most divisive topic is would it have been better had Connery reprised his Bond role instead of Lazenby. Still, it's better than the average, over-the-top Bond films which came later (i.e. Moonraker, A View to a Kill).

Hmmm... I liked Maryam D'Abo in The Living Daylights. Same with Carole Bouquet in For Your Eyes Only; she reminds me of Liv Tyler in her pomp. Tanya Roberts (A View to a Kill) was a Barbie doll impersonator and Grace Jones, well, erm, no comment. The actress who played Holly Goodhead in Moonraker (:b) was OK, albeit I find her voice and her character boring and unmemorable. Cary Lowell in License to Kill looked much better with a shorter hairdo and the girl who plays Sanchez's girlfriend was hotter, by far.
