214 | The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)

Michael, Rob, and Karen discuss fun houses, slide whistles, kung fu nieces, and Mary Goodnight's espionage skills in this comprehensive conversation about Roger Moore's second Bond film. It's The Man with the Golden Gun, starring Christopher Lee, Maud Adams, Britt Ekland, and HervĂ© Villechaize.

  1. Of course MI6 has Scaramanga's contact number. Never know when you might need a non-governmental asset to carry out some sort of action that can be hidden/denied.

    The periodic "anti-Bond" villains seem to be the better ones as compared to the villain being split between the mastermind villain who doesn't really fight and a "fighting" henchman there to provide Bond the physical challenge. The latter often seem to be much more two dimensional and thus need a quirk or two. Oddjob one of the better ones. And soon you get the running gag of Jaws - who is arguably one of the more inept henchmen in the franchise beyond his apparent indestructability and script immunity.
