Cameos

Dr. No


Bob Simmons
James Bond in Gunbarrel Sequence (Uncredited)
Most people do not know that the first James Bond to appear (in an official movie of course) is not even Sean Connery. Bob Simmons’ likeness was used instead to make the famous walk-turn-shoot routine.
 
From Russia with Love

Once again, Simmons takes on his ‘role’ of James Bond in the opening gunbarrel sequence.
 


Anthony Dawson

More known for his role as the creepy henchmen Professor Dent in Dr. No, Dawson appears as head of SPECTRE Blofeld in this movie, although, as the tradition is with Blofeld, only Dawson’s lower half is visible.

This Austrian actor voiced the head of SPECTRE in the second James Bond movie.
 


Ian Fleming

Bob Simmons comes back for a third time as 007 in the opening gunbarrel sequence.
 


Michael G. Wilson
Soldier (Uncredited)
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.
 


George Leech
Man in Bulletproof Vest at Q Branch (uncredited)
This English actor and stuntman eventually makes multiple roles throughout the James Bond series, the first of which comes in this memorable scene from Q Branch in Goldfinger.

Kevin McClory
Smoking Man (Uncredited)
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.

Charles Russhorn contributed to the Bond movies as a military advisor. He is shown here (presumably that’s him, boxed in) as M addresses all of the 00 agents. Russhorn was acknowledged in Goldinger a year earlier, as the producers put his name in the sign for Fort Knox.
