Jaws - James Bond Wiki

Appears in:


International names:

  • Requin in French ("Shark")
  • Beißer in German ("Biter")
  • Tiburón in Spanish ("Shark")

About him:

  • Tall, silent, very strong and psychotic killer who worked for mad wealthy industrialists Karl Stromberg and Hugo Drax in The Spy who Loved Me and Moonraker respectively.
  • Stands 7ft 1.5 (2.17m), he is the tallest henchman Bond has ever met.
  • His favorite weapons are his metal teeth. He can break chains and metal cables with it effortlessly.
  • His crotch seems to be made of metal as well (and probably other parts of his body).
  • Survives situations in which "normal" humans would be killed (see "Great Jaws Moments" below).
  • Turns against his master at the end of Moonraker.
  • Falls in love with Dolly, a short nerdy girl with blond bunches and glasses in Moonraker.
  • Doesn't talk until the end of Moonraker: he opens a bottle of champagne with his teeth, and says "Well, here's to us!" to Dolly. He then serves champaign and they clink glasses.
  • One of the very few villains' henchmen who ends up helping Bond, and one of the very few to survive as well.

Actor:

Richard Kiel, born in 1939.
He couldn't stand wearing the metal dentures as they were very painful so he could only wear them for short periods of time.
He appeared in several films as a villain including Clint Eastwood's western Pale Rider in 1985 as a henchman of Josh Lahood. Also appeared as a cameo in the Inspector Gadget movie and in Happy Gilmore as Happy`s Boss.

Kiel's favorite Bond movies are Goldfinger, From Russia With Love, Dr. No and On Her Majesty's Secret Service.


Attempted methods of killing Bond:


  • Biting him with his stainless steel teeth
  • Killing him with a wooden club in Egypt
  • Shooting him in a car chase in Sardinia
  • Pushing him out of a plane without parachute
  • Shooting him in a boat chase on the Amazon river
  • And a general beating, of course


How he is dispatched:


Bond never kills Jaws but he does try to kill him, by throwing him out of a train, putting him in a shark pool, smashing his cable-car into the cable-car station, running his car off the road into the house of a poor Sardinian farmer, pushing him off of a waterfall on the Amazon river, and after all that Jaws just gets up, dusts off his jacket and walks away - they finally team up at the end of Moonraker. As Drax's space station was blown up, Jaws was jettisoned in an intact module of the station along with his girlfriend Dolly.


Evil scheme:

  • Killing anyone who gets the mircofilm.
  • Killing Bond.


Boss:


Freelance.
Notable employers : Karl Stromberg, Hugo Drax.


Defining dialogue:

  • Bond has one about him in Moonraker: (to Holly Goodhead) "His name's Jaws. He kills people."
  • (to Dolly in Moonraker) "Well, here's to us!"

Jaws will be in The spy who loved me and Moonraker
I don't think he is scary.
He can break Ropes and wood with his teeth.
His real name is Richard Kiel. My best bond film is Moonraker

Jaws was a very intimidating henchmen. Especially to be fighting in a fist fight. Jaws had people scared of him. He one of my favorite villains.
