Insane Car Jump Ruined in "THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN" (James Bond, 1974)

This James Bond film features one of the greatest car stunts ever.

The technical preparations for the "corkscrew" jump had to be precise. With several cameras rolling, the skilled driver pulled it off in one take.

And then they went and ruined it by adding... ...a cartoon slide-whistle sound effect. 

Composer John Barry later regretted adding the mood-killing sound effect.

Bond fans still cringe...and wonder what the moment would've been like without it.

(Let's find out!)

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material. Just having some fun with it. Thanks for watching!
