. . . would have been MOONRAKER's fate, if the foreshadowing in CABLE CAR ALTERNATIVE: STORYBOARD 2 had come to pass. MOONRAKER executive producer Michael G. Wilson (a.k.a., "the man outside Benini Glass") says here that THE SPY WHO LOVED ME's fickle henchman "Jaws" (who defected from that movie's Curt Jurgen\"Karl Stromberg" bad guy to MOONRAKER's Michael Lonsdale\"Hugo Drax") originally was intended to have his own "mini-me" style henchman, "Ratz" in the latter film. Had this storyline played out on the Big Screen, "Ratz" would have played a big part in James Bond's perils at Rio's Sugar Loaf Mountain cable car, leaving no time for James and "Jaws" to go Mano-a-Mano on top of an acrophobia-inducing sightseeing vehicle. That, of course, would have proved safer for Roger Moore's stunt double, who heard the distant call for "Action!" at one point BEFORE he had his safety harness on, and dutifully dangled over the 2,000-foot drop with nothing but his own arms to prevent him from falling to a certain death!
