On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)

After Agent 007 (George Lazenby) rescues troubled Contessa Teresa “Tracy” di Vicenzo (Diana Rigg), in thanks, her father offers James Bond 1 million pounds to marry her. Bond agrees to romance Tracy in exchange for information on the whereabouts of longtime nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Telly Savalas). His search sends him undercover to the Swiss Alps, where Blofeld, under the auspices of a private hospital and research facility, has developed a deadly bacteriological weapon capable of mass destruction.
