Probably inspired by the success of Star Wars, James Bond went into outer space in Moonraker, one of the most popular of the series. It’s got amazing aerial stunts, some of designer Adam’s most inspired sets, a creepy villain in Michel Lonsdale’s Hugo Drax and Richard Kiel is back as the giant, metal-toothed henchman Jaws.

"Irresistibly entertaining." Frank Rich, Time

"A minor masterpiece." James Monaco, The Connoisseur’s Guide to the Movies

"One of the most buoyant Bond films of all." Vincent Canby, New York Times
