S18E06: You Give Love A Bad Name | George Lazenby, the Lesser James Bond
Some people are born great, while others have greatness thrust upon them. In spite of honest efforts to thrust greatness onto Australian actor George Lazenby, he has instead built a career and life out of a series of cascading bad decisions – in work and love. His single turn as James Bond could have heralded the start of a glorious career in show biz; instead, it represented a high water mark for an actor whose career never particularly went anywhere. Alicia has all the gory details.
