Josh Greenbaum writes and directs this documentary which tells the story of how former Australian male model George Lazenby landed the role of James Bond in the 1969 film 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'. After moving to London in search of love, Lazenby began a successful modelling career before being convinced to audition for the role of Bond. Despite having never acted in his life, Lazenby somehow overcame the odds and got the part, only to turn down the opportunity to continue in the role beyond his first film. Featuring extensive interviews with Lazenby himself alongside dramatic reconstructions of key events from his life, the film provides an insight into one of the strangest stories in Hollywood history.
