Lot Essay

Billionaire villain Hugo Drax (Michael Lonsdale) intends to destroy life on earth and then re-populate it with his ‘chosen’ people who he transports to his space station via space shuttles until James Bond (Roger Moore) and Dr. Goodhead (Lois Chiles), with the help of the International Space Marines, commence battle with him. This belt buckle featuring a stylised version of the space shuttle is part of the jumpsuit uniform worn by Drax’s space station crew.

A ‘Classified Document’ of the ‘Space Borne N.G. Delivery System Re-Entry Vehicle’ was designed for the film but not seen on screen – Bond takes a similar document out of Drax’s clock safe and photographs it. It contains a clue that leads him to the Venini glass works in Venice.
