Showdown between Bond, Goldfinger voted greatest 007 moment


The infamous Goldfinger dialogue 'No Mr Bond, I expect you to die' has been voted the best moment from the 007 movies.

The confrontation between Goldfinger and Sean Connery's Bond was named as the favourite Bond moment in a new poll from Sky Movies HD. The poll took into account all the 23 Bond films in 50 years. More than 2,500 people were asked to name their favourite Bond scenes in the poll, the Daily Mail reported.

When informed of the winning moment, which received 10.3 per cent of the votes, current Bond star Daniel Craig said: "Yes, that would take some beating."

Second in the poll was the breath-taking pre-title moment in 'The Spy Who Loved Me' which showed Roger Moore skiing off the edge of an Austrian mountain to open a Union Jack parachute. The scene took in 7.6 per cent votes to pipe the first ever 'Bond...James Bond' statement from Connery in 1962's 'Dr No', which came third with 5.7 per cent of the votes.

Craig's thrilling chase at the start of 'Casino Royale' was the fourth most memorable moment in the Bond franchise with 5.3 per cent.

It was ahead of 'The Man With The Golden Gun's barrel roll car sequence, which saw Roger Moore's Bond perform a daring car jump across a Bangkok river. Moore's heroics earned 4.5 per cent votes.

Pierce Brosnan made his entry into the poll in sixth place with 3.3 per cent for his tank chase through St Petersburg in 'Goldeneye', beating Roger Moore's crocodile 'stepping stone' escape in 'Live And Let Die'.

The eighth most popular Bond scene again went to Craig's 'Quantum Of Solace' Aston Martin DBS race through the banks of Lake Garda by getting 2.2 per cent votes.

Q also makes an entry in the list with Desmond Llewellyn's character in 'The World Is Not Enough' getting two per cent of the votes.
