As Bond and Honey Ryder make their way to dinner in Dr. No’s lair in the first James Bond movie Dr. No (1961), you’ll notice 007 do a double-take on a particular piece of artwork before walking up some stairs:
The painting (Portrait of the Duke of Wellington by Francisco de Goya) was notable at the time of the movie as a pop culture reference, since in real life it was stolen. Bond’s look at the painting shows his surprise that Dr. No is the perpetrator.
Easily the most tragic and shocking ending to a James Bond movie ever.

Victor Tourjansky may have a more impressive cinematic resume as a member of film crews, but his short, humorous and memorable cameos in three straight James Bond movies are a great source of comic relief.
As seen in the above screenshots, Victor’s character made appearances in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Moonraker (1979) and For Your Eyes Only (1981) as a man with an affinity for wine that gave a look of disbelief during a chase sequence through a public crowd.
Cheers, Victor! 🙂
