The Man with the Golden Gun 1974

James Bond has been marked for death, and he’ll need all of his lethal instincts and seductive charm to survive this action-packed adventure! Roger Moore once again brings inimitable style to his portrayal of the unstoppable Agent 007.

Bond must find the missing “Solex Agitator,” a device that will harness the sun’s radiation and give awesome power to whomever possesses it. But, also vying for the prize is Francisco Scaramanga (Christopher Lee), a world-class assassin who brandishes a distinctive golden gun. When 007 discovers he is to be Scaramanga’s next target, he is hurled into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, continuing the search as he evades the killer on his trail. Bond must also contend with Scaramanga’s exotic lover Andrea Anders (Maud Adams), and Nick Nack (Herve Villechaize), whose small size belies his lethal abilities. Even as 007 enlists the aid of sensuous Mary Goodnight (Britt Ekland), he must overcome ferocious odds to survive an explosive showdown on Scaramanga’s remote island.

With a riveting boat pursuit, a wild automobile chase through Bangkok and Bond’s stunning confrontation against an entire martial arts school, The Man With The Golden Gun delivers pull-out-the stops excitement!
