Goldfinger scene voted greatest Bond moment


A laser-charged sequence in Goldfinger has been voted the nation's favourite moment from the James Bond series.

The villain's famed "No Mr Bond, I expect you to die" line (scroll down to see the video) topped a Sky Movies poll to find the greatest Bond in the spy series, in the same which in week Skyfall's global box office earnings passed $1bn.

After 50 years and 23 films to date, Sky Movies asked over 2,500 members of the public to name their favourite Bond moment as part of a special programme Bond's Greatest Moments which isn available on Sky Movies 007/HD and On Demand.

Hosted by Sky Movies presenter Alex Zane, the programme includes contributions from much-loved Bond stars including Daniel Craig and Judi Dench, Bond directors, producers and celebrity fans including Andrew Garfield and Hugh Jackman.

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

Second in the poll was the breathtaking 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 (7.6%), which narrowly beat the first ever, now definitive "Bond...James Bond" statement from Sean Connery in 1962's Dr. No, which was third with 5.7%.
