Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. One of the most iconic moments in Bond history is from 1964's "Goldfinger". Villain Auric Goldfinger captures 007, and we watch as Bond is trapped on an operating table and is about to eviscerated by what type of cutting tool?

Answer: Laser beam

Let's set the scene. Bond is captured by Auric Goldfinger and is strapped to a gurney where an industrial laser is slowly cutting gold metal and working its way in between James Bond's legs. Bond, played by Sean Connery, asks Goldfinger, played by German actor Gert Fröbe, "Do you expect me to talk?" Goldfinger responds, "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die."

How does Bond escape? Bond entices Goldfinger to spare his life by dangling the fact that MI6 already knows of Goldfinger's plot to raise gold prices by setting off an atomic bomb destroying the US gold supply in Ft. Knox, Kentucky. Even though Goldfinger thinks Bond is bluffing, he shuts off the laser and decides to keep Bond around for a while. Bond eventually foils Goldfinger's scheme with the help of the US Army bomb squad and Goldfinger's pilot Pussy Galore, played by Honor Blackman.

"Goldfinger" remains one of the best-loved of the Bond movies and features the first Academy Award for the series (Best Effects). British recording artist, Shirley Bassey, sang the title song and the movie soundtrack went to number one on the US Billboard Top Album chart. The movie differed in several key ways from Ian Fleming's 1959 "Goldfinger" novel. In the book, Auric Goldfinger was trying to steal the gold from Ft. Knox and the Pussy Galore character was a lesbian.
2. In 1973's "Live and Let Die" Bond is captured by heroin kingpin and diplomat Dr. Kananga. He is tricked into being stranded on a small rock in the middle of a pond where he is supposed to be eaten by which of the following aquatic predators?

Answer: Crocodiles

Let's set the scene. Bond has just learned that Dr. Kananga (Yaphet Kotto), the Prime Minister of the small Caribbean island nation of San Monique, is growing poppies for heroin. The refined drugs are then sold in New York through a network of restaurants called Fillet of Soul. Bond (Roger Moore) has corrupted Solitaire, the (no-longer) virgin fortune teller (played by Jane Seymour) used by the drug kingpin. Together, Bond and Solitaire travel to New Orleans where Bond is captured by Kananga. Bond is sent to an alligator/crocodile farm with Kananga's henchman. Kananga's lead henchman, Hee Hee, tells Bond how one crocodile named Albert had taken his arm off during an inattentive moment. Bond is left on a small rock filled with meat drawing the fierce reptiles towards him and sure death.

How does Bond escape? One of the key tropes in any James Bond movie is the villains have a hard time finding good help. After tricking Bond to stand on the island, the henchmen retract the dock stranding 007 in the middle of the pond. As the crocodiles and alligators start to close in, the henchman simply leave without waiting to see that Bond is actually killed. Using his best hopscotch moves Bond runs across the heads of the reptiles zigzagging to safety.

"Live and Let Die" featured Yaphet Kotto in the dual role as both the San Monique Prime Minister and the drug kingpin Mr. Big. The film featured a Grammy and Academy Award nominated title song written and sung by Paul McCartney. "Live and Let Die" featured the fine actor Geoffrey Holder, perhaps best known as the "Uncola Man" who appeared in a number of popular ads for the lemon-lime soda pop 7 Up. In the movie, Holder played a voodoo priest and evil associate of Dr. Kananga. Even though he is a villain, Holder's giant smile and trademark deep laugh make his screen time a pleasure. Despite a heavy dose of outdated 1970s racial stereotypes, "Live and Let Die" remains both a popular Bond movie and one of my personal favorites.
3. Christopher Lee plays the one-named villain Scaramanga in 1975's "The Man With The Golden Gun". Scaramanga lures James Bond to a deserted Pacific island. Here he tries to kill Bond in an elaborate game area that resembles what type of amusement park ride that commonly includes mirrors and odd noises to scare players?

Answer: Funhouse

Let's set the scene. Bond has been on the hunt for a mysterious hit man who kills with a special caliber of solid gold bullet. The hit man has escaped with a key part needed to create a giant solar laser that can destroy missile defense systems at will. Bond is captured by Scaramanga, who shows him the laser in operation as he destroys Bond's plane. Scaramanga promises Bond his freedom if he can defeat him in a duel. Bond tracks Scaramanga to a maze inside a funhouse environment. However, Scaramanga is the master of the maze and has killed others in the environment before.

How does Bond escape? The maze is a series of mirrors and corners and loud noises and distractions that Scaramanga uses to practice his skills against live opponents. While he is alternately hunting/being hunted, Bond finds a life-like wax figure of himself. Bond assumes the stance of the figure. Scaramanga walks by Bond and is oblivious to the suddenly live wax dummy. Bond then moves, surprising Scaramanga and shoots him. Bond then narrowly escapes an explosion on the island, rescues the solex part and lands in a boat in time for a liaison with agent Miss Goodnight (Britt Ekland).

For some odd reason, it was important to both the book and the movie "The Man with the Golden Gun" to point out that Scaramanga had a medical condition called supernumerary or third nipple. Scaramanga apparently shares his badge of honor with actor Mark Wahlberg, the fictional Chandler Bing from "Friends" and Anne Boleyn. Maud Adams has a key supporting role in "The Man with the Golden Gun". The lovely Miss Adams later co-starred in 1983's "Octopussy".
4. In 1971's "Diamonds are Forever" James Bond finds himself in a bit of a pickle when international assassins Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd neatly arrange for 007 to be killed at a mortuary. By what method do these tidy assassins attempt to eliminate Mr. Bond?

Answer: Cremation

Let's set the scene. In an overly complicated plot, 007 is tracking the path of stolen diamonds from South Africa posing as a diamond broker named Peter Franks. Two rather odd assassins called Mr. Wint, and Mr. Kidd are systematically killing diamond brokers and smuggling diamonds in the now dead bodies. The purloined diamonds are recovered from the bodies of the dead dealers at the mortuary where the bodies are cremated. Bond is attacked by Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd, knocked out and placed in a box heading into the cremation oven for roasting.

How does Bond escape? As Bond is about to become a human toasted marshmallow an accomplice of Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd, named Shady Tree (Mr. Tree is a large man), shuts off the cremation oven. Mr. Tree had discovered that Bond switched the real diamonds being carried by Peter Franks with fakes. Bond is spared so he can obtain the real stones.

"Diamonds are Forever" features Sean Connery in his last "official" turn as 007. Connery returned as James Bond in 1983's "Never Say Never". The movie was not produced by Eon Films and is thus not considered an official Bond movie by movie historians. The movie is not considered one of the better Bond outings, but does feature actor/sausage salesman Jimmy Dean as a reclusive Howard Hughes tycoon. In both Ian Fleming's book of the same name and the movie, the characters of Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd are portrayed as lovers, a fact that caused some controversy in the early 1970s.
5. James Bond certainly needs to sleep with one eye, if not both eyes, open, as it seems that every time 007 tries to catch a few winks someone tries to kill him. No better example of this is from 1967's "You Only Live Twice". Can you recall the method used to try and put Bond to sleep for good utilized in this movie?

Answer: Dripping poison from a thread

Let's set the scene. "You Only Live Twice" opened with James Bond enjoying a tryst with a Chinese girl. While on the bed, Bond is trapped by the girl in the wall (who hasn't had that happen at least once) and is repeatedly shot by gunmen and declared dead. However, Bond is very much alive (hence the title). He is then sent to Japan to figure out why US and Soviet manned rockets are being captured in space and to stop the start of a nuclear war between the superpowers. In Japan, Bond meets secret agent Aki (Akiko Wakabayashi) and the two appear to fall in love. Despite the romance, Bond is required to undergo surgery to make him look Japanese (not really) and "marry" another agent (also beautiful of course) on a remote island that is the epicenter of the lost rockets. On the night before he departs, as Bond and Aki lay sleeping in their supposedly safe retreat, an assassin in the ceiling drips poison onto a thread lowered over Bond's mouth.

How does Bond escape? The "poison dripping into the mouth" assassination method is fraught with uncontrollable variables. Here Bond simply rolls over and moves out of the way of the poison thread. Sadly, the graceful Aki snuggles closer to Bond and into the poisons path. Aki swallows the poison and dies. Bond awakens to the death rattle of his lover and grabs his gun and shoots the assassin.

"You Only Live Twice" was described in the press as Sean Connery's last turn as James Bond. As such, there was some possibility that the death scene at the movie's start might be real, and a new "00" agent could be introduced. In an interesting side note, Bond producers Albert Broccoli and Howard Saltzman (amongst other crew members) were scheduled to return from a Tokyo location scouting exercise on March 5, 1966. Fortunately for them, their plans were changed at the last minute (so they could attend a "ninja fighting" exhibition), as the flight they were scheduled to be on crashed about 20 minutes after takeoff killing all on board.
6. Roger Moore's seventh and last James Bond movie was in 1985's largely forgettable "A View to a Kill". While in France Bond flees deadly pursuit by jumping into a 1962 Rolls Royce, where he is rendered unconscious and left to die in the car. What vehicular peril did Bond narrowly escape this time?

Answer: Drowning in a lake

Let's set the scene. Bond is investigating the death of another "00" MI6 agent and is pointed in the direction of horse breeder and eccentric businessman Max Zorin played by Christopher Walken. Bond joins forces with Sir Geoffrey Tibbett, played by Patrick Macnee of "The Avengers" fame. While at Zorin's estate in France, Bond discovers that Zorin is using a microchip implant to drug horses. Tibbett is killed by Zorin's henchwoman May Day (singer Grace Jones) while at a car wash, where he is cleaning a 1962 Rolls Royce (actually owned by Bond producer Albert Broccoli). Bond is attacked by Zorin and flees. 007 finds the Rolls Royce only to discover May Day and the dead Tibbett inside. Bond is knocked unconscious, and the villains push the car into a lake.

How does Bond escape? This one is actually plausible as it is possible to escape a submerged car. Bond awakens in time to kick out the window, and as the pressure equalizes escapes the car. Realizing he is almost out of oxygen, Bond wisely unseals a cap on a tire and sucks in the air to allow him to rise to the surface.

By the time "A View to a Kill" was completed Roger Moore was 57 and no longer looked like an agile James Bond. The movie also suffers from a recycled plot that too closely resembled the more polished "Goldfinger". Not even a catchy and popular theme song by Duran Duran or the casting of Academy Award winner Walken saved this overall weak effort. "A View to a Kill" also marked Lois Maxwell's last outing as Miss Moneypenny, the lovelorn assistant MI6 director M.
7. Attempts to kill James Bond can also be educational. In 1997's "Tomorrow Never Dies" Bond is in the clutches of master torturer Dr. Kaufman. What type of obscure torture style, deriving from the Sanskrit study of energy nodes, does the good doctor try to use on 007?

Answer: Chakra torture

Let's set the scene. James Bond, now played by Pierce Brosnan, has renewed a relationship with former flame Paris Carver (played by the lovely Teri Hatcher). Paris is now the wife of media mogul Elliott Carver (a slumming Jonathan Pryce). Bond believes that Carver is manipulating events in the South China Sea to start a war between the UK and China so that his news networks can cover the mayhem and garner massive ratings. Carver finds out that Bond has seduced his wife and arranges for Dr. Kaufman (wonderfully droll character actor Victor Schiavelli), an expert in chakra torture, to painfully murder his wife and then Bond. When Bond arrives, Paris is dead, and Dr. Kaufman gets the drop on 007 with a pistol.

How does Bond escape? At first Dr. Kaufman's plan is to shoot Bond and stage the scene to look like a murder/suicide. Kaufman's plan changes when Carver's henchman asks him to extract information from Bond with the chakra torture devices. Before Kaufman begins, Bond gives the (not so good) Doctor his phone / remote control device and tricks Kaufman into activating the phone's Taser feature (standard now on every Smartphone). The shock gives Bond the opportunity to take control of the pistol. Kaufman pleads for his life claiming he was only a professional doing a job. In turn, Bond says he is also a professional and shoots him.

Later in the movie, Carver henchman Mr. Stamper attempts to avenge the death of Dr. Kaufman by using the chakra devices on both Bond and his Chinese counterpart Mai Lin. Bond uses one of the pain inducing devices to pin Stamper to a missile and send him off to his death. "Tomorrow Never Dies " was the second film to feature Pierce Brosnan as 007. This movie paired Bond with a "good" Chinese agent played by the athletic (and exquisitely beautiful) Michelle Yeoh. The film was dedicated to the Bond producer, Albert "Cubby" Broccoli, who had died June 27 1996 during the film's principal shooting.
8. A Bond villain has to be good to survive failed attempts to kill 007 in not one but two films. We first meet the seven foot plus assassin named "Jaws" in 1977's "The Spy Who Loved Me". Jaws attempts to kill the erstwhile Mr. Bond using what part of his body that has been replaced by razor sharp metal?

Answer: Teeth

Let's set the scene. Karl Stromberg (Curt Jürgens) is a megalomaniacal anarchist and billionaire (aren't they all) trying to start World War III by stealing nuclear submarines. Bond (Roger Moore) and his Soviet counterpart, the gorgeous and deadly (as are all Soviet agents) Major Amasova (Barbara Bach), are tracking Stromberg. In Stromberg's employ is the seven foot tall killing machine known as Jaws (Richard Kiel). Jaws favorite method of killing is to use his all-metal teeth to bite the neck of an opponent and sever their jugular vein. Jaws surprises Bond on a train and looks to put the bite on 007.

How does Bond escape? Bond dodges Jaws' teeth and after a long fight manages to push the assassin out of the moving train. One might think that this would kill or at least seriously maim Jaws, but then you would be wrong. Jaws not only survives, but shows up to attack Bond after he eventually subdues Stromberg. Bond escapes the "jaws" this time by using an electromagnetic crane to grab Jaws by the metal teeth and drop him into a handy shark tank (there is always a shark tank somewhere in a Bond film). Jaws, however, survives this inconvenience by biting the shark first.

"The Spy Who Love Me" featured an Academy Award nominated song "Nobody Does It Better" written by Marvin Hamlisch and Carole Bayer Sager and sung by Carly Simon. The film was the highest grossing Bond movie of the series at that time. Barbara Bach went on to marry former Beatle's drummer Ringo Starr. Jaws was so popular a character that he returned to try and kill Bond in the 1979's "Moonraker". Interestingly, Jaws falls in love during "Moonraker" and has an epiphany where he forgoes his evil ways and assists Bond to overcome the villain.
9. No Bond movie is complete without some time spent with a good stiff drink. In 2006's Bond reboot of "Casino Royale", 007's drinking habits almost kill him as he is the victim of what type of near fatal condition?

Answer: Cardiac arrest from poison

Let's set the scene. Bond, now played by Daniel Craig, is a young raw 007 agent. Bond is attempting to win an ultra high stakes poker game in order to prevent money launderer to the terrorists Le Chiffre from recouping bad investments. Bond starts to win, and Le Chiffre has his girlfriend Valenka (Ivana Milièeviæ) poison Bond's martini with digitoxin (or digitalis for the rabble). Bond ingests the poison and collapses later going into cardiac arrest.

How does Bond survive? Once Bond notices the drugged drink, he tries to purge his stomach. Next Bond gets to his car where he has an AED (automatic external defibrillator) and a way to connect with MI6 doctors. The doctors identify the poison and instruct Bond to medicate himself and shock his heart with the defibrillator. Bond can't get the defibrillator to work, and his heart stops beating. MI6 treasury agent Vesper Lynd (Eva Greene) luckily arrives and sets off the AED thus reviving Bond.

The 2006 version of "Casino Royale" is both a remake of an earlier Bond film and a rebooting of the series. The new movie restarts Bond's career making him a young agent both more emotional and prone to mistakes. The 1967 version of "Casino Royale" was a farcical comedy starring legendary British actor David Niven as a retired 007 forced back into service to stop the evil SMERSH from taking over the world. The 1967 version of "Casino Royale" also included an amazing all-star cast with Orson Wells, Woody Allan, Peter Sellers, Ursula Andress, Jacqueline Bisset and Johanna Petit (playing Mata Bond, the daughter of 007 and Mata Hari) to name a few.
10. A most memorable method used to try and kill James Bond comes from 1995's "GoldenEye". Famke Janssen plays the sadistic ex-Soviet pilot Xenia Onatopp. Ms Onatopp attempts to crush James Bond using what implement or device?

Answer: Her thighs

Let's set the scene. Bond (Pierce Brosnan) is in pursuit of his former best friend and 00 colleague Alec Trevelyan, who faked his own death and set up a crime syndicate. Trevelyan is intent on destroying the UK economy as a revenge plan for killing his Nazi collaborating Cassock parents (whew! that's a mouthful) using a super secret Russian satellite program called GoldenEye. Bond travels to Cuba to stop Trevelyan and he is attacked by henchwoman Onatopp. Ms. Onatopp's method of killing is to wrap her powerful (though shapely I must admit) thighs around the head of her victim and suffocate them while at the same time enjoying herself immensely. Here she rappels down a rope from a helicopter to put the "squeeze" on Bond.

How does Bond escape? By now 007 is no stranger to lovers, both former and present, trying to kill him. Bond manages to grab an AK-47 rifle on Xenia's back and shoots down the helicopter (pretty obvious in retrospect). This results in Ms. Onatopp being dislodged from Bond's head and deposited into a tree where her safety harness crushes her to death. Droll as ever Bond cannot help but comment that "she always did enjoy a good squeeze".

"GoldenEye" was Pierce Brosnan's first as 007 after two movies with Timothy Dalton in the role. "GoldenEye" followed a six-year hiatus between Bond films as legal battles over film rights delayed any filming. The title "GoldenEye" is not related to any of Ian Fleming's works but is instead an homage to the estate in Jamaica where Fleming wrote most of the Bond novels. "GoldenEye" was also the first film where Judi Dench played M. The decision to make the head of MI6 a woman was inspired by the real life 1992 appointment of Stella Rimington as the first female Director General of MI5.
