The Man With The Golden Gun – This 1974 movie pits James Bond (Roger Moore) against Francisco Scaramanga (Christopher Lee) and his golden gun. Scaramanga is the world’s most expensive hit man and James Bond is on his list.

As part of the plot, James Bond must find a solar energy device that is planned to be put to nefarious use.

Along the way, we get to see the beauty of Thailand and China. Bond meets Scaramanga’s henchman, Nick Nack (Hervé Villachaize), Andrea Anders (Maude Adams), Miss Goodnight (Britt Ekland), and is reunited with J.W. Pepper (Clifton James) who he met in Live and Let Die.

The Man With The Golden Gun has one of the best car jump stunts in any James Bond movie.
