Moonraker

A stolen space shuttle leads 007 to track down a fellow with a scheme to re-populate the world.

Completely over-the-top 007 attempting to ingratiate Bond to the Star Wars set.
I hated this movie when it came out, but have to acknowledge these days that it was intended as fun and it succeeds on that level.

Has but a passing acquaintance with the Fleming's source novel which I'd love to see adapted masterpiece theatre style set in the 50s with, say, Charles Dance as Bond.
