On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) is the sixth film of the James Bond film series and the first and only film to star George Lazenby as fictional British secret agent James Bond. It is a loose adaptation of Ian Fleming's eleventh James Bond novel. The film is significant due to Bond marrying the leading Bond girl, Tracey di Vicenzo, at the conclusion of the film followed by her death at the very end at the hands of the villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld. In later Bond films, Bond was shown to feel discomfort when a subject related to his wife was brought up, due to her untimely death. The film was the second of three of the franchises installments known as the "Blofeld trilogy" due to Blofeld being the main villain in all three, the former being You Only Live Twice (1967) and the following being Diamonds Are Forever (1971).
