“There’s never a cab when you want one.”

James Bond (Roger Moore)

Max Zorin (Christopher Walken) has kidnapped Stacey Sutton (Tanya Roberts) in his blimp. James Bond (Roger Moore) manages to hold on to the rope.

Zorin orders Scarpine (Patrick Bauchau) to run over the Golden Gate Bridge to take down 007.

But the latter hangs on and manages to get the rope back on one of the bridge pillars, forcing Zorin to climb down to finish the job.

During the fight, Zorin falls off the bridge and Dr. Carl Mortner (Willoughby Gray), in an attempt to help his “creation,” blows up the airship. So everything ends well for Bond and Sutton.

1986

A View to a Kill has one sad nomination, for Worst Actress in an Action Comedy at the 1986 Razzie Awards for Tanya Roberts.

Golden Gate Bridge

If we had to choose the most iconic bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge would certainly not be the last…

From 1933 to 1937, the construction of the famous San Francisco Bridge encountered many difficulties, first of all financial.

Such a project being very expensive, its construction was slowed down, criticized and often abandoned.

As a technical matter, the pillar located at the bottom of the water was the most difficult to erect.

But it also posed some problems to the boats; a cargo ship in 1933 struck the pier used for the construction of the pillar.

Despite the many precautions taken by the chief engineer, Joseph Strauss, some 30 people died during the construction.

The orange color, chosen by another architect, Irving Morrow, was violently criticized by the officials.

However, it is still today an inseparable element of the Golden Gate Bridge. Perhaps it is even what earned the structure a place among the seven wonders of the modern world in the ranking established by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
