On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’s Opening Scene

“This never happened to the other fellow.” The opening scene of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969) has Bond rescuing Tracy (Diana Rigg) from Draco’s men on Guincho Beach in Portugal. George Lazenby’s line came from an in-joke from the set that made it into the final film. “When I’d have to work at the weekends, the stuntmen would tell me, ‘Connery never did weekends’. I’d say, ‘That never happened to the other fellow eh?’”
