To rescue hapless fellow agent Goodnight (Britt Ekland), James Bond (Roger Moore) steals an AMC Hornet from a Bangkok dealership, crashing through the showroom's plate-glass windows and onto the city streets. Trapped in the passenger seat is J.W. Pepper (Clifton James), the redneck sheriff first introduced in the Bond film Live and Let Die. Just when it appears that bad guy Scaramanga (Christopher Lee) has slipped out of 007's grasp, Bond completes a 360-degree, midair corkscrew turn before landing tires-down on the opposite bank of the river. The jump, worked out in advance by computer simulation, was filmed in one take, without using any special effects at all.
