After 1973’s Live and Let Die, Roger Moore’s second James Bond film adopted a yr later in The Man with the Golden Gun.

The unfastened adaptation of Ian Fleming’s remaining 007 novel noticed the actor co-star reverse the author’s cousin, Christopher Lee because the title character Francisco Scaramanga.

Both had been good friends and loved one another’s firm on location in Thailand.

One day, Moore discovered a cave stuffed with bats and couldn’t resist telling Lee about his discovery and joked to the Dracula star: “Master, they are yours to command!” But this wasn’t the final of the actor’s findings.

During filming in Bangkok, The Man with the Golden Gun manufacturing shot the boat chase on town’s canals generally known as the klongs.

The Bond star recorded in his autobiography how he had fallen within the water twice. The first time was as a result of they advised him to not and the second was on goal.

Upon the second fall, he got here throughout essentially the most gristly sight beneath the floor and shortly realised why he was warned to not let the water into his mouth.

Moore, who was 46 on the time of filming The Man with the Golden Gun, wrote in his autobiography: “When we got to Bangkok we filmed another boat chase, this time on the klongs, the waterways found threading around the city. The word went round that, if we fell in, under no circumstances should we let any of the filthy water pass our lips. I did fall in myself, twice in fact. The first time was deliberate, but the second time was when I took a bend on the river – under an undertaker’s – a bit too tight and lost my balance.”

Moore continued: “I stayed under to avoid the rotor blade, but made the mistake of opening my eyes – I discovered what the undertaker did with some of the poorer people’s bodies. When I look back on the sequence now, I cringe when I think of pushing the little boy who climbed into Bond’s boat trying to sell a wooden elephant, into the klong.”
