belongs to Mr. Drax.

Owns a lot, doesn't he?

What he doesn't own,

he doesn't want.

We're approaching

the main complex now.

That's where

the Moonraker shuttle

is made?

That's right,

workshops, hangars,

design and

experimental blocks,

test centers, everything.

Very impressive.

I'd heard that

Hugo Drax is obsessed

with the conquest of space.

Now, I can believe it.

(SOFTLY) Good Lord.

The Drax residence.

Every stone

brought from France.

Cute, isn't it?


Why didn't he buy

the Eiffel Tower as well?

He did, but the French

government refused him

an export permit.

Look there.

Those are

the astronaut trainees.

Mr. Drax is

financing the entire

training program

out of his own pocket.

He seems to have an eye

for a good investment.

Mr. Drax will see Mr. Bond

in the drawing room,

Miss Dufour.

Thank you, Cavendish.

This way, please, sir.



Mr. Bond, sir.

Mr. Bond.

Mr. Drax.

Allow me to present,

before they leave us,

Countess Lubinski,

Lady Victoria Devon,

Mr. Bond.

How do you do?

Well, my dear fellow,

your reputation

precedes you, of course.

I'm honored that

your government

should send you

on so delicate a mission.

Delicate, Mr. Drax?

Well, to apologize

in person for the loss

of my space shuttle.

How would Oscar Wilde

have put it?

"To lose one aircraft

may be regarded

as a misfortune,

"to lose two seems

like carelessness. "

Well, an apology will be made

to the American government,

Mr. Drax,

when we've discovered

why there was no trace

of the Moonraker

in that wreckage.

And your loyalty

commands respect, Mr. Bond.

You have arrived

at a propitious moment,

coincident with your country's

one indisputable contribution
