Rising up in a small helicopter into a clear blue sky, a British Secret Service agent (played with somewhat Scottish flair) then passes over the smoking vapors of the volcanic landscape in the far south of Japan, looking for the secret hideaway of a master criminal.

Before he knows it, several SPECTRE helicopters are on his tail. But not for long: Using a cunning combination of flame guns, aerial mines, heat-seeking missiles and machine guns, the Englishman — perhaps you recall his name? — and his autogyro Little Nellie are free again above the wilds of Kyushu.

Down below, in a space-age rocket base carved inside a volcano, Ernst Stavro Blofeld strokes a cat and plots nuclear Armageddon. The world falters on its axis and only one man can save it.
