since I don't generally know the answers I'll have some fun with this, plus some guesses

001) What are the two films in which the actress playing the main Bond girl has been older than the actor playing Bond?

On Her Majesty's SS, '69


Yes. OHMSS is one of the two films. Dianna Rigg was 31 years old while George Lazenby was only 30.

004) The last time Bond was seen smoking was in which film?

Diamonds are Forever?


Post Connery Bonds have smoked

006) Bond's famous Walther PPK is the same model gun used by what world leader to commit suicide?

I'm guessing Hitler, but do they know that for sure?


That's true. Eva Braun took cyanide while Hitler greased himself with his German made Walther PPK.

Those are some tough questions.

2. Do you mean hynophobia?
3. What do you mean by the Eon series? I'd like a convenient way to exclude the first Casino Royale and Never Say Never from the official Bond movie list, but what is a good standard to achieve to exclude them?
4. I must admit I read the other answers and mine would have been wrong. I thought the smoking went way when Connery did. Then again, I could see Timothy Dalton smoking, but I'm not sure.
5. My guess is Roger Moore with seven.


I read the other replies on this. I did not know that about Hitler. However, in the movie Downfall, they make it out that Hitler and Braun shot at each other at the same time. However, they also don't indicate any witnesses to the event, so how did they know?


7. I can think of two only, but I'm probably missing some.

While we await the next gambling scene (and the next film) here are a few more Bond trivia questions ranging from easy to difficult...



001) What are the two films in which the actress playing the main Bond girl has been older than the actor playing Bond?

002) Bond actor Roger Moore suffered from hoplophobia which is the fear of what?

003) In the official Eon series, what are the only two films that don't involve a helicopter at some point?

004) The last time Bond was seen smoking was in which film?

005) Who holds the record for the most times a single actor has played the same role in a film series?

006) Bond's famous Walther PPK is the same model gun used by what world leader to commit suicide?

007) Including non-Eon productions, how many actors have played the role of Felix Leiter?


No searching please.



001 Moneypenny during On Her Majesty's Secret Service (she was younger than Lazenby I believe) and Pussy Galore during Goldfinger. Maybe another Connery movie because he was so young during the beginning. Maybe Trench as well (Bond girl from Dr. No), she did look older, but that one I am not sure on. I guess it also depends on definitions of Bond Girls (some people don't consider Moneypenny a Bond Girl, Pussy Galore was technically a villian, etc...)

002 I have no idea. Fear of physical work? (I think I remember interviews of him saying he hated doing physical stuff).

003 Dr. No and Casino Royale.

004 Timothy Dalton for Cigarettes. Pierce Bronson for Cigars. Craig originally had scenes where he was a smoker in Casino Royale, but they edited them out (to Craig's dismay) because they wanted to make a tobacco free movie (and its the only Bond movie with no tobacco use by Bond or main characters, subsequent Craig films allies smoked like Felix Lighter). But, Craig is the first Bond to not smoke at all (at least not on a publicly released version).

005 Desmond Lelyenan (probably spelled wrong), Q.

006 I have no idea. Was it Hiter? I know Germans used Walthers, but that was probably an earlier model. I can't think of any other famous leader that shot himself.

007 Over 5, but less than 12 (unless the 1960s Casino Royale had Felix Leiter in it, I don't recall, but I know they had like 5 Bonds, so they could have done something weird with several Leiters, I don't remember which could be a trick question). I know only two actors have only played the role in more than one film (at least in Eon). So I would guess 10 as an even number?

2) No, Hoplophobia. It's an actual thing and surprising that a Bond actor would have it.

3) Eon is the British production company (founded by film producers Albert R. “Cubby” Broccoli and Harry Saltzman) that makes what is commonly called the "official" James Bond movies: from their first Bond film "Dr. No" through their 25th Bond film, the upcoming "No Time To Die". It does not include "Casino Royale" 1954, "Casino Royale" 1967, or "Never Say Never Again" 1983.

4) There was post Connery smoking.

5) Incorrect

6) This is easily verified. Here's the simple Wikipedia version.

7) Incorrect.

"Main Bond Girl" usually meaning the girl Bond is with at the end of the film. Honor Blackman (Pussy Galore) was five years older than Sean Connery in "Goldfinger".


002) Incorrect.

"Dr. No" is indeed one of the two films without a helicopter.

Desmond Llewelyn played the role of Q (i.e. Major Boothroyd) in 17 films.

001
Ah, I glossed over the "main" part of the question. Then I am unsure other than my above answers, most of the older women who came to mind would not fit that description. I would guess there would be none in Moore's films just because he was so old (By Bond standards) when accepting the part (mid 40s), so by nature he was older than most actresses who would have such a role, and by his late films he was in his late 50s. Since Sean Connery was so young when starting (early 30s), I think it would have to happen in his films.

Lazenby was actually quite young (even a bit younger than Connery, I think he may have been in his 20s during filming), so its possible he was younger than Dianne Rigg (the lady he marries at the end, blanking on the character name), but its hard to say, there was not a visible age difference (I do know that Rigg has passed in the last couple years and Lazenby is still living, though that alone does not mean he is inherently younger). I know Lazenby was almost certainly younger than Moneypenny in his film.


003
I honestly do not remember any in Casino Royale, but there was an airport runway scene so I guess there could have easily been one sitting on the airport somewhere.


004
License to Kill for cigarettes, Die Another Die for cigars.

The Dalton movies were sponsored by Lark and actually have the surgeon general warning in the closing credits (at least the American releases), at least LTK does, I am not positive about The Living Daylights.


002 and 007 I have no idea, and would just be shooting in the dark at this point (I don't know enough about the Leiters in the non-EON Bonds).

Hoplophobia

I'm going on a hunch here because I vaguely remember something about Roger Moore asking not to have to kiss anymore after Spy Who Loved Me. Fear of kissing?

Including non-Eon productions, how many actors have played the role of Felix Leiter?

From memory:

Dr.No Jack Lord

Goldfinger (don't remember name)

Thunderball (don't remember name)

Live and Let Die (don't remember name)

Never Say Never Again (Bernie Casey? Only black Felix Leiter)

I want to say Felix also appears in Diamonds are Forever. It makes sense being in Vegas but can't remember now.

I'm not as familiar with the later Bonds so he might have made some appearances there as well.

Trivia ( In the books Felix Leiter loses his arm to an alligator in Live and Let Die. But that never made it into the film)

Trivia: In what book does James Bond die and how (because Ian Fleming was tired of the character) and which book does he "come back to life" and how (because public outcry caused Ian Fleming to change his mind and yes that sounds a lot like the inspiration for the Stephen King book Misery)

Oh that is a good guess for the phobia, that one did not even occur to me, that sounds like that is probably correct.

Your Leiter list is good, the current Felix Leighter is also Black though (the one in the Craig movies, very popular actor, in lots of stuff, cannot think of name).

And, yes there was one in Diamonds are Forever.

There were not many Leiters in the Moore movies, and I think Live and Let Die was the only one. However, that actor came back in 1989 for Licensed to Kill (making him and the Craig one the only actors to play Leiter more than once). The Living Daylights also had a Felix Lighter (different actor). There were none in the Bronson movies, and just one in the Craig movies. I have no idea about the two non-EON Casino Royales.

So maybe 9 then, your list plus those three? Or actually 8 since the LTK was a repeat actor? This is assuming there is no Felix's in the non-Eon Casino Royales (The TV movie in the 50s, and the 1960s one).

In the books he had a hook for most of the series because of that shark attack. This is what the Leiter scenes in License to Kill are based on (which makes Bond go rogue for revenge). I really like his character in the books, and I think the film series could have done him justice with better continuity for his character.

Your question:
From Russia With Love I believe, because it ends with "fading to black" or some language like that after he gets stabbed with the poison shoe knife

It's a quick helicopter cameo...



So we have "Dr. No" and what other film?


Very good. Bond smokes cigars while in Havana.

002) Incorrect, but that would certainly be something a Bond actor would have trouble with.

007) Correct! in a joint solve with Gandler

Eight or nine is acceptable.

Eon Films
Dr. No = Jack Lord
Goldfinger = Cec Linder
Thunderball = Rik Van Nutter
Diamonds are Forever = Norman Burton
Live and Let Die, Licence to Kill = David Hedison
The Living Daylights = John Terry
Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, No Time to Die = Jeffrey Wright

Non-Eon
Never Say Never Again = Bernie Casey
Casino Royale (1954) = Michael Pate (Arguable since the character is renamed "Clarence Leiter")

It's been over 20 years since I've read any Bond books. As I recall, at the end of the Blofeld trilogy, in "You Only Live Twice", Bond gets amnesia and is presumed dead by the British Secret Service.

The helicopter question has me puzzled.

Dr. No clearly no helicopters.
From Russia with Love has the famous scene where bond battles the helicopter on foot with a scoped rifle.
Goldfinger Felix Leighter is flying helicopter at the end searching for Bond.
Thunderball helicopters are used through the film in the Caribbean scenes for various things.
You Only Live Twice has many helicopters including a gadget helicopter and a helicopter battle.
On Her Majesty's Secret Service has a helicopter assault on Blofeld's alpine base.
Diamonds are Forever has a helicopter assault on Blofeld's oil rig.
Live and Let Die has a helicopter attack Bond in the jungle.
The Man with the Golden Gun, I cannot think of one.
The Spy Who Loved me, Bond gets chased by one in the submarine car.
Moonraker, Bond is flown in one to Drax's estate.
For your Eyes Only, the pre-credit scene is all about a remote controlled helicopter than Bond is locked in.
Octopussy, I am not sure, there are plane scenes including a military air base, so there probably is a helicopter somewhere.
A View to a Kill, Pre-credit scene has Russian choppers when he is skiing/snowboarding.
The Living Daylights I cannot think of a helicopter, but this movie also has a lot of military airfield scenes so there is probably one somewhere.
License to Kill the pre-credit sequence has a Coast Guard helicopter that Bond rides to catch the villain.
Goldeneye, has the military helicopter that gets stolen.
Tomorrow Never Dies, Bond gets chased in Asia by a helicopter on a motorcycle.
The World is not Enough, there are those foresting helicopters which are later used as weapons in a pretty unique action scene.
Die Another Day, the pre-credit scene has helicopters, there may be some in the background in the military bases late in the movie.
Casino Royale, I was blank on this one, but apparently Bond rode in one as evidenced above.
Quantum of Solace, I cannot recall one.
Skyfall, Helicopters come on the deserted island to get the villain after they shoot the old pistols.
Spectre, pre-credit helicopter action scene


I would think it would be between Quantum of Solace, Living Daylights, Octopussy, or Man with the Golden Gun as those are the ones that I am not 100% certain had helicopters in some capacity. I would guess Man with the Golden Gun as that did not have any military base scenes, or modern settings where one could be randomly in the background, though the villain did have a flying car, and Bond flew a small aircraft towards the end, but I can't visualize a helicopter in any of the flying scenes. Octopussy, there are several scenes where it makes sense that a helicopter could be (including the pre-credit scene), the Living Daylights is the same concept (lots of military airfields, etc....), Quantum I am less sure of, but as it is modern, it seems like there must be one somewhere even in passing. But, I would think between those three for sure, and my guess would be Man with the Golden Gun simply by less opportunities for helicopters (and the story does not have settings where there is likely one in the background, and as action scenes are so sparse any kind of vehicle actions stands out in that film).
