Goldfinger (1964)

Michael G. Wilson
Soldier (Uncredited)

IMDB Information

In his first of many on-sreen cameos, the famed James Bond producer makes an appearance as one of Goldfinger's soldiers at Fort Knox. This screenshot is of my own determining. Since most of Goldfinger's soldiers were of Asian decent, and are relatively short in height, Wilson appears to stick out like a sore thumb in this shot. I could be wrong though, so e-mail me if you have any info.

Thunderball (1965)

Kevin McClory
Smoking Man (Uncredited)

IMDB Information

This producer and longtime Bond movie Crew alum appears as a man sitting and smoking a cigar as Bond enters the Nassau Casino. McClory's connection with the Bond franchise has been rough at times. Later in his Bond career, McClory claimed the rights to the Blofeld/SPECTRE organization in the early Bond movies. This prevented SPECTRE from being included in 1977's The Spy Who Loved Me. In 1983, McClory produced the unofficial James Bond movie Never Say Never Again, starring Sean Connery as James Bond.
