“The plane, the plane”

Agent 007 (Roger Moore) learns that he’s on the hit list of the world’s most expensive assassin, Scaramanga (Christopher Lee). Traveling from Beirut to Macau, China, to Bangkok, Thailand, he aims to confront the assassin while recovering sensitive solar cell equipment. Hervé Villechaize is on hand as Scaramanga’s little assistant, Nick Nack.

“The Man with the Golden Gun” (1974) was Moore’s second outing as Bond. He did 7 films for the franchise in 13 years from 1973-1985. Moore’s stint is my favorite run in the series with all seven films being kinetic, amusing, scenic and just all-around entertaining. There’s not one clunker in the bunch and they were all profitable at the box office, but this one kinda got lost between the cracks of “Live and Let Die” (1973) and “The Spy who Loved Me” (1977).

Director Guy Hamilton made three prior Bond films, “Live and Let Die,” “Diamonds are Forever” (1971) and “Goldfinger” (1964), and wanted 007 to be more rough around the edges in this movie, like he is in Ian Fleming’s book. As such, Moore’s acting seems more “tough” here than his other Bond entrees; for instance, the way he treats Andrea (Maud Adams) in the arm twisting scene. But Moore didn’t like playing the character this way and toned it down for the rest of his installments.

There’s picturesque Asian globetrotting, with the Thailand islands being particularly scenic (standing in for “Red Chinese waters”). On the female front, there’s Agent Mary Goodnight played by Britt Ekland, who looks great in a floral bikini during the last reel. There’s also the aforementioned Adams as Andrea and a cameo by Chew Mee. Memorable moments include an entertaining martial arts academy sequence; the amusing return of redneck Sheriff JW Pepper (Clifton James), who’s vacationing in Bangkok with his wife; a great car-jumping stunt; and Scaramanga’s secret solar power plant operation.

The film runs 2 hours, 5 minutes and was shot in Thailand (Phang Nga Bay and Bangkok) and Hong Kong/ Macau, with additional work done in England.

GRADE: B

Review By: Wuchak

Sometimes a film is more than just what you see on the screen. I will always recall this fondly as it was the first film I ever saw in a cinema that wasn’t a cartoon – and I really enjoyed it. This time “007” receives a rather intriguing golden bullet through the post. After some detective work he concludes that he is a target of he eponymous character – “Scaramanger” (Christopher Lee) who charges $1m per hit. Why, though? Off to Hong Kong he goes, and soon his own dangers are intertwined with a perilous search for a “solex” – a revolutionary gadget that can convert solar energy into electricity. Of course the ending is never in doubt, but Guy Hamilton makes the most of an on-form Roger Moore with plenty of action. There is also enough light-heartedness – not least the canal urchin with his teak elephant and “bloody tourist” and some engaging – if very of their time – interventions from Clifton James returning in his role as the imbecilic sheriff “J.W. Pepper”. We have two “Bond” girls – Britt Ekland as the light and fluffy “Goodnight” with Maud Adams (“Miss Anders”) the unloved and unhappy girlfriend of the gunman who tries to help “Bond” stay alive, and of course there is the legend that is “Nick Nack” (Hervé Villechaize) who at three foot tall, provides much of the menace and a fair degree of the humour throughout. The scenarios give the photography a chance to shine – beautiful Thai locations, some kick boxing and a fun river boat chase before an suitably pyrotechnic denouement. One of my favourite Bond films – well paced and with a strong baddie. Under-rated, I think – well worth a watch.
Review By: CinemaSerf
New entry with an exceptional villain , Scaramanga , very well played by Christopher Lee
This exciting ninth Bond entry gets the greatest villain named Scaramanga , an awesome Christopher Lee , here’s his biography : he was born in a circus , his father was ringmaster and mother a English snakes charmer . He was a spectacular trick-shot artist when ten and a local Rio gunman at 15 . The KGB trained him in Europe where he became an overworked and underpaid assassin . He went independent in the late 50s , his current price : one million dollars a hit . No photograph on file and unknown domicile but he does have on distinguishing feature,however : a superfluous papilla and mammary gland,a third nipple . He always uses a golden bullet , hence ¨Man with the golden gun¨ . He sends a golden bullet to MI6 with number on 007 and a note requesting special delivery to Bond , it’s initialled with a ¨S¨ and Scaramanga’s fingerprints were on it . Scaramanga tries the death of 007 , face to face , a duel between titans : The golden gun against Walther gun . James Bond is assigned to retrieve a piece of equipment named Solex that can be used for a device to create the sun’s energy . Bond explains when he kills it’s under specific orders of government and those he kills are themselves killers .

Roger Moore is a sympathetic and magnificent Bond , he earns in irony , suavity and smoothness . In an interview Moore tells about the shooting : ¨It looks a paradise on the screen but it was terrible hot,the entire unit had boils because you could never take a shower . It was uncomfortable ,it looks romantic and then they went over Macao . We’re shooting all those scenes of gambling and so that’s all go over there and we’ve got tables going over there with the Blackjack and he made quite money at the gambling table during the five months of shooting¨ .

The film contains spectacular fights , the lieutenant Hip’s nieces were students of the karate school , the scene was played for laughs , but the women cast were Tae-Kwon-do champions and very accomplished athletes . The struggles were carefully choreographed and performed like a dance routine requiring each participant to hit their mark at the correct time . Film is made by Eon Productions Limited on location in Hong Kong , Macau , Thailand and Pinewood Studios , London , England . The atmosphere is faithful to the actual location but the interiors on a set at Pinewood Studios . The motion picture was well directed by Guy Hamilton .

“Do you always take a shower with a pistol?”
As a product of their times, I’m finding the early James Bond films to be real campy and the stories not as credible as I thought they might have been. Having just started watching the franchise in order, I’m coming across more goofy elements than I thought I would, like the character of Sheriff J.W. Pepper (Clifton James) in this and the prior movie of the series, “Live and Let Die”. Gee, if he isn’t just plain embarrassing to watch in these pictures. I have no idea why the film makers thought it would be a good idea to have such a clueless redneck character in their movies.

Now on the flip side, I don’t think you could have called for two more stunning Bond girls than Maud Adams as Miss Andrea Anders, and Britt Ekland as Miss Goodnight. Although it didn’t seem very realistic that in a real life tough spot like Bond (Roger Moore) and Miss Goodnight found themselves in near the end of the picture, that she would be running around in a skimpy bikini trying to outwit the bad guy Scaramanga (Christopher Lee). Not complaining mind you, but it seems like she might have gotten a little drafty after a while.

I didn’t know Hervé Villechaize ever portrayed a Bond villain, so that was a bit of a surprise for this viewer. It looked like he was pretty much doing a tryout here for his role as Tattoo in the ‘Fantasy Island’ television series that came out a few years later. It would have really knocked me out if he had exclaimed ‘Da plane, da plane!’ somewhere during the story, and I did have my eye and ear out for that, but it never came about. Come to think of it, Christopher Lee had a more than passing resemblance to Ricardo Montalban of that same series, he could easily pass for Montalban’s brother.

Well, superfluous papillas and solex agitators aside, this is a fairly lively flick with the requisite amount of Bond action and fiery explosions. The only thing is, with all the build up of Scaramanga being such a formidable hit-man, the eventual showdown between him and Bond came off as anti-climactic. The genius assassin should have figured that the human James Bond might have considered replacing the mannequin James Bond to gain an advantage. Oh well, can’t win them all.

Say, have you noticed how many Bond films end up on a boat?
