“Congratulations.”

James Bond (Roger Moore)

After “borrowing” a Renault 11 taxi at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, James Bond (Roger Moore) sets off in pursuit of May Day (Grace Jones), who has chosen a completely different means of transport.

The chase ends on the Alexandre-III bridge, from which agent 007 jumps to land on the bateau-mouche where May Day had taken refuge.

The British spy slumps right into the cake of the bride and groom celebrating their union on the boat. In the meantime, May Day has managed to escape, with Bond looking on as he is grabbed by the furious cooks.

Pont Alexandre III

Inaugurated for the 1900 World’s Fair, the Pont Alexandre III represents the Franco-Russian friendship after the peace treaty concluded in 1891.

The foundation stone was laid by Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, Empress Alexandra Fedorovna and President Felix Faure on October 7, 1896.

This bridge, named after the predecessor of Nicolas II, is built in the axis of the esplanade of the Invalides and leads directly to the Petit and Grand Palais, also built for the World Fair.

152 m long and 30 m wide, the building was classified as a historical monument in 1975.
