Moonraker was literally filmed in space! (note the exclamation point used for emphasis)
It must have cost a fortune for filming…perhaps Drax assisted with production costs? A quick Google shows it’s possible to use private space agencies to go intergalactic at ~$200,000 per flight, or around $60,000 in 1979 dollars. Although no such agency existed back then…
Eon Productions jumped the gun!
Roger Moore as James Bond escapes via hang glider in Moonraker (1979)
Might be my favorite escape!
