Lot Essay

In A View To A Kill, Roger Moore as Bond is seen wearing an identical tracksuit in the scene where he and MI6 agent Sir Godfrey Tibbett, played by Patrick MacNee, break into the villain Max Zorin's laboratory hidden under the stables. Here they discover Zorin's method of ensuring his horses win races, but more importantly that he is hoarding microchips as part of his plan to flood Silicon Valley and corner the world market in microchips.
The vendor, stunt co-ordinator Del Baker, played the the part of the security guard who is dispatched by Bond towards the end of this scene, in a crate bound with steel bands going along a conveyor belt.
