Live and Let Die

Agent 007 James Bond takes to the water for the thrilling LIVE AND LET DIE (1973) boat chase. The scene used 26 boats, 17 of which were destroyed.

“I knew there was going to be a boat chase and until we started shooting, it just said, ‘The most terrific boat chase you’ve ever seen,’ because I never got around to writing it,” explained screenwriter Tom Mankiewicz. “That really happened as a result of going around the bayous and seeing the different stunts they could do.”
