Note from the editor: This recap was updated on May 21, 2012 with new screencaps and new commentary from the author!

The Cast of Characters:
Roger Moore as James BondJames Bond (Roger Moore). You know the name, you know the number, and you know he’s not even going to get his hair mussed. Seems to have psychic powers in this one, at least more so than usual.
Lois Chiles as Dr. Holly GoodheadDr. Holly Goodhead (Lois Chiles). Bond’s leading lady. A sexy CIA agent who is as adept at impersonating a piece of wood as she is at impersonating a scientist.
Michael Lonsdale as Hugo DraxHugo Drax (Michael Lonsdale). Psychotic billionaire looking to destroy the world with nerve gas and repopulate it. Bit of an eccentric fellow if you really stop and think about it.
Richard Kiel as JawsJaws (Richard Kiel). Steel toothed henchman from The Spy Who Loved Me. While a big, dumb brute on the outside, on the inside he’s really just a big dumb, brute with love in his heart.
Corrine Clery as Corrine DufourCorrine Dufour (Corrine Clery). Drax’s none-too-bright secretary. First girl that Bond shags in the film. Ends up going to the dogs, literally.
Toshirô Suga as ChangChang (Toshirô Suga). Drax’s top henchman. Enlisted to make sure some harm comes to Bond.
Blanche Ravalec as DollyDolly (Blanche Ravalec). Cute, pig-tailed girl who falls in love with Jaws. Because even hulking killers with stainless steel teeth need to get some nookie every now and then.
