I've just spent the afternoon watching The Man with The Golden Gun and The Spy Who Loved Me. 

2 striking conclusions have emerged:


Bond Villains LOVE Tabasco: 


Both Scaramanga and Stromberg have bottles of Tabasco whilst they are eating.... NickNack carries a tray with it and Stromberg has it alongside his fish when Bond shoots him. Are there any other villains who love Tabasco!?!?

Roger Moore does not need to eat, he can exist by snogging/sex:


He remarks to Goodnight that it is apt they should meet again later that evening as he'll be looking forward to a good 'meal' and asks her to keep everything warm.

In Cairo he quips that he's already had lunch but could fit in dessert and cuts straight to soft core porn mode.

Bernard Lee M/Top Brass really needs to learn not to call Bond 20 minutes after completing a mission. Gun is the first of 4 films where M/HQ will ring Bond/attempt to talk to him for a debrief at the worst possible sexy time. (This does not occur in Octopussy as far as I recall???? so maybe Robert Brown wised up before becoming M!)

But, for someone who doesn't need food, you have to admit that Sir Roger can make a very badass-looking quiche!  . . . Assuming, of course that the words 'badass' and 'quiche' are allowed to be in the same sentence.


Good catch on the Tabasco product-placement!  I never noticed Stromberg's bottle.

Who doesn't enjoy some Tabasco on their food from time to time?

Pffft, a real tough as nails villain would eat nothing but Sriracha.

Talking of eating habits in the Moore Bond films, and this is slightly off-topic, I suppose, as it relates to the appetites of the villain's pets, but fans of LALD should check out the article 'Live and let bite: 007 and the crocodiles', on the JBIFC website and Facebook page. Go to: www.007info
