. . . good guys, rather than an expendable thug, which was American Olympic wrestler Harold Sakata's fate as the doomed henchman of Auric Goldfinger, Oddjob, in Eon Production Company's third Bond outing, GOLDFINGER. Tennis star Vijay Amritraj captained India's Davis Cup team for parts of two decades, and reached the quarterfinals of several Grand Slam men's singles events. (But, just as he was no match for the guy with a circular saw blade yo-yo in OCTOPU$$Y, Jimmy Connors proved equally lethal to Mr. Amritraj's grass court hopes.) However, Vijay is one of several OCTOPU$$Y cast members featured here, including Roger Moore as Secret Agent 007 James Bond and Maud Adams in the title role. Adams' fellow Swede, 1977 Miss World Mary Stavin seems to be given an inordinate amount of attention in this 29-minute short, given the minor nature of her role as one of a dozen European-born "Octopu$$y girls" (there were more than a dozen other circus\martial arts\Indian gals featured in this 13th Eon Bond flick), but apparently Ms. Stavin's notoriety here led to a cameo appearance years later in the TV film noir, TWIN PEAKS.
