Agent 007 is as daring as ever in OCTOPUSSY: the 13th installment in the James Bond series. When fellow secret serviceman Agent 009 is murdered over a treasured Faberge egg, the British intelligence sends James Bond (Roger Moore) to investigate. Bond follows the egg to India after it is put up for auction and bought by the wealthy prince Kamal Khan (Louis Jourdan). There he meets the enigmatic and beautiful circus leader, Octopussy (Maud Adams) and discovers that Khan and the maniacal Russian General Orlov (Steven Berkoff) plan to cripple Western Europe with a nuclear explosion and incite a world war.
As indicated by its risqué title, OCTOPUSSY is one of the most licentious of the Bond films. Complete with the standard Bond components (sleazy one liners and deafening explosions) it overflows with sexual innuendoes. Maud Adams is the most alluring Bond of starlets to date. Her titillating performance as OCTOPUSSY inspired sexual fantasies in an entire generation of moviegoers. Having worked on a number of Bond films as an editor and director, John Glen insures a Bond film which is pleasing to both the cinematic aesthete and the Bond fanatic. Bordering on the realm of high art, OCTOPUSSY is a cinematic masterpiece.
