Some cock has stolen The Golden Gun that was used in the 1974 Bond film The Man With The Golden Gun. In the film Christopher Lee played Scaramanga, a three-nippled assassin who only ever needed one golden bullet fired from his golden gun to kill his target. The gun was being cared for by Elstree Props, a tenant based at Elstree studios.
From The Telegraph:
Stephen Wickenden, its managing director, said: “I’m hoping the gun will be offered to one of the memorabilia dealers and from them we can trace it back to the thief.
“We have no idea who stole it or when it was stolen but things do not usually go missing.”
Nicolas Cage’s latest film Kick-Ass is being filmed there. It is thought a crew member was being shown around by Mr Wickenden when the weapon’s absence was noticed, although he would not confirm this.
A spokesman for Hertfordshire Police said: “We were called to Elstree Studios in Borehamwood at 1.25pm after a report of a theft of a prop, which was the golden gun. Inquiries are ongoing.”
The prop is expected to be worth £80,000 ($135,096) so if you notice a golden gun pop up on eBay let me know. Or you could tell the police, either way is fine.
