Oddjob’s electrocution (Goldfinger, 1965)

30 of the most dangerous movie stunts 1

Played by Harold Sakata in the third Eon Productions-produced James Bond movie, Oddjob is the dependable henchman of wealthy bullion dealer and criminal, Auric Goldfinger (Gert Fröbe). Oddjob’s weapon of choice is a flying bowler hat that could easily take heads off.

Despite Oddjob’s fancy weapon, Bond (Sean Connery) manages to defeat him by tossing a live wire at him, which toasts him to death. While Oddjob’s death scene is a visual spectacle, Sakata actually got some serious burns when the pyrotechnics meant to simulate his character’s fatal electrocution torched his sleeve and injured his hand.
