Moonraker (1979) (part 8 of 14)

Back in the lab-turned-study, Drax talks on the phone with an employee, assuring him that everything has been taken care of. He also has him get hold of a henchman agency so he can replace Cha. That’s right, “Cha”. For some reason, the character is named “Chang” in the credits, but in the film Bond and Drax refer to him as “Cha”, and so do the subtitles and closed captioning. It could either be the accents (French and English, respectively) or another screw-up that makes the film seem even sloppier than it already is. Anyway, Drax approves a new henchman.

At the airport, we see the new henchman arriving, who’s a tall, familiar looking gentleman. He goes through the metal detector, setting it off. It turns out it’s his teeth that set off the metal detector, because it’s the return of Jaws. Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the… Oh, wait. Wrong guy.
