The Many Looks Of The Bond Villain | Kamal Khan (Louis Jourdan)
Kamal Khan (Louis Jourdan)

Film: Octopussy (1983)

Style: Bond’s only enemy of royal descent, Khan is an exiled Afghan prince, holed up in a palace in Rajasthan and fond of a high-stakes game of backgammon. Infinitely wealthy, arrogant and aristocratic, he nevertheless seems content to rub shoulders with various levels of ne’er-do-well. He likes to wear dark silk, but will rock a safari suit if the occasion demands.

Plan: Complicated smuggling plot involving the replacement of Russian treasures with nuclear warheads, to fool Europe into disarmament and leave the way clear for Soviet invasion.

Best Line: "Mr Bond is indeed a very rare breed… soon to be extinct."

7 Octopussy?
Technically speaking, Octopussy would've been the first female Bond villain. It's really a fine line as she was working with Kamal Khan at the same being an ally/love interest to Bond. Still, Elektra is the first full-on female villain. More

8 Stromberg's webbed!
Not many people know this but Curt Jurgen's Karl Stromberg character has webbed hands! The hands are only really noticeable if you see the movies in theaters or watch it on an HDTV. Otherwise, if you watch it on DVD on a standard TV, you'll have to zoom in or freeze frame to really spot them. They're perhaps most noticeable when they show a closeup of his hands pushing the button that leads to his secretary's death. More
