The fifth film in the Bond series, You Only Live Twice is unique for two reasons. Firstly, James Bond gets married and secondly we are introduced to Ernst Stavro Blofeld in the flesh, played menacingly by Donald Pleasance in a screenplay by Roald Dahl and directed by Lewis Gilbert.
The film is also memorable for its incredible 400,000 set of Blofelds Volcano operational base, complete with the rocket laucher, helicopter landing pad, monorail and massive shutter. Qs invention Little Nellie a one man miniature helicopter - also makes a big impact.
An American space mission is interrupted when one of their capsules is literally swallowed up by what they suspect is a Russian spaceship. The Americans threaten to retaliate, but the British think otherwise. Everything depends on Bond as he goes undercover in Japan and discovers that Blofeld is the creator of these interceptor rockets.
