Octopussy is a 1983 British spy film and the thirteenth in the James Bond series produced by Eon Productions; the sixth to star Roger Moore as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. It was directed by John Glen and the screenplay was written by George MacDonald Fraser, Richard Maibaum and Michael G. Wilson. The film’s title is taken from a short story in Ian Fleming’s 1966 short story collection Octopussy and The Living Daylights, although the film’s plot is mostly original. It does, however, contain a scene adapted from the Fleming short story “The Property of a Lady” (included in 1967 and later editions of Octopussy and The Living Daylights). The events of the short story “Octopussy” form part of the title character’s background and are recounted by her in the film.
