After operatives begin disappearing all over the world and "M" murdered, MI6 agent James Bond is called out of retirement. To confuse SMERSH, Bond gives orders that all field agents use the name "James Bond." Produced by Columbia Pictures and not by Eon, a spoof format was chosen as the studio felt it could not compete with the mainstream Bond franchise. No fewer than five directors, most unaware of what the others were doing, contributed to the madness of this incoherent film. As standalone art, some of the segments are quite good. Val Guest had the unenviable job of trying to tie the pieces together.
