“Taxi, follow that parachute!”

James Bond (Roger Moore) to the Parisian taxi driver (Lucien Jérôme)

James Bond must meet Achille Aubergine (Jean Rougerie), a contact of Sir Godfrey Tibbett (Patrick Macnee) at the Jules Verne restaurant on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower.

Unfortunately, Achilles is murdered by May Day (Grace Jones), bodyguard and lover of Max Zorin (Christopher Walken).

James Bond chases her down the stairs of the Eiffel Tower until she reaches the top floor and jumps into the void before deploying her parachute.

In a flash, agent 007 jumped on the elevator and went down to the ground to pursue the criminal in a Renault 11 taxi waiting in front of the monument.

Grace Jones performed the Eiffel Tower stunt herself. The 3-metre fall was cushioned by cardboard boxes placed below.

Eiffel Tower

More than a monument, a symbol. It is therefore normal that the artists make him see it in all its colors. Destroyed during disaster scenarios, place of spectacular waterfalls or theater of the most beautiful romances, the Eiffel Tower is a character in itself. A real star.

And to think that it was to disappear only twenty years after it ... Learn more about Eiffel Tower
