007 Drives The ‘Bondola’ in Venice

From Moonraker

On this day in 1978 principal photography started on Moonraker. In today’s scene Bond drives the gondola (or Bondola as the crew called it) through Venice’s Mark’s Square. Roger Moore said: “There were thousands of tourists who didn’t know there was a film going on. I didn’t have that much control over it, so they eventually gave me a little klaxon to warn people.”
