A View to a Kill

Synopsis: James Bond has one more mission. Bond returns from his travels in the USSR with a computer chip. This chip is capable of withstanding a nuclear electromagnetic pulse that would otherwise destroy a normal chip. The chip was created by Zorin Industries, and Bond heads off to investigate its owner, Max Zorin. Zorin may only seem like a innocent guilty man, but is really planning to set off an earthquake in San Andreas which will wipe out all of Silicon Valley. As well as Zorin, Bond must also tackle May Day and equally menacing companion of Zorin, whilst dragging Stacy Sutton along for the ride.

the leak did occur

after Zorin bought the company.

Precisely why I've initiated an investigation.

All right, but let's be discreet about it.

But of course, Minister.

You have exactly 35 minutes

to get properly dressed, 007.

(race commentator) They round the turn.

Just under a mile to race from this point.

Come on, Fluke! Move your ar...

- Who is number one? The grey with him?

- Oh, that's Pegasus. Zorin's horse.

With the cane. Max Zorin?

Yes. Born in Dresden.

Fled from East Germany in the sixties.

French passport.

Speaks at least five languages, no accent.

Now the talk of the City and the Bourse.

- The old rags-to-riches story.

- Made his first fortune in oil and gas.

Now a second in electronics and hi-tech.

Who's that with him under the hat?

With the red dress. A girlfriend?


We're not sure about her.

American. She's never far from him.

Name's May Day.

(Bond) And dressed for the occasion.

(Moneypenny) Come on, Fluke!

Get a wiggle on!

(commentator) Pegasus has come from

nowhere, and as they go for the line

it's Pegasus who storms clear

off Fluke and Cooper Girl.

(announcer) First, number one; second,

number two; and third, number five.

First number one, Pegasus;

second number two, Fluke;

and third number five, Cooper Girl.

Unbelievable! In all my years as a trainer

I've never seen a horse

run such a fast last furlong.

Sir Godfrey Tibbett. Our department.

- Many congratulations.

- Thank you.

- Lucky man, Zorin.

- Could be more than luck, Admiral.

- Fixed?

- Your guess is as good as mine.

The French Jockey Club have hired

a detective, Aubergine, to look into it.

(May Day) Easy, Pegasus.

Calm down, Pegasus.

Easy. Steady, steady.

She must take a lot of vitamins.

Perhaps Pegasus does too.

I think I should meet with
