In Thunderball, SPECTRE agent Count Lippe's [Guy Doleman] brass door plate can be seen on the door of his suite at the health club Shrublands. Lippe, Largo's first assistant, is stationed there by SPECTRE due to the proximity of the health club to a NATO base and his involvement with SPECTRE's scheme to hi-jack a Vulcan bomber complete with two atomic bombs. Lippe arouses Bond's suspicions by the symbol on his arm - a red square with a line through it. Lippe tries to kill 007 while he is on a traction machine, his attempt fails however and Bond [Connery] gets his revenge by locking Lippe in a steam machine and turning up the heat. Lippe's failure is not tolerated by SPECTRE, and he is dispatched while following Bond in his car, by Fiona Volpe on a missile-firing motorbike.
