Second place went to the Bangkok street car chase in The Man With The Golden Gun which ended with a Hornet X car performing a 'corkscrew' jump over a river. The stunt from the 1974 movie was the first to have been pre-calculated by computer and was filmed in just one take.

The opening sequence from GoldenEye, a 750ft bungee jump over the side of the Hoover Dam, came third.

Live And Let Die and The Spy Who Loved Me also feature in the top 10.

(Steve McQueen's hair-raising motorcycle jump over a barbed wire fence in The Great Escape has been voted the most memorable movie stunt ever.)

where did you find these??

yerssot

I think the stunt work during the speed boat chase sequence in LALD is very impressive...as is Bond hanging about the outside of St Cyril's in FYEO...

THUNDERBALL's underwater climax has some very good moments too as does the volcanic ending of YOLT...but, yeah, I thought the jump in TMWTGG, as a single stunt, is one of the best....

yerssot
well, YOLT was great with the ending sequence but not really stunt-material

The Redeemer
No stunts in the volcano...??? What the f**k?

yerssot
thought you ment the entry?

The Redeemer
That's MOONRAKER, old boy...and it's RE-entry!!!

From a Bond site (just so you know who finished first):

Steve McQueen's hair-raising motorcycle jump over a barbed wire fence in The Great Escape has been voted the most memorable movie stunt ever.

Super-cool McQueen, a keen biker, did most of his own riding throughout the 1963 movie's climactic chase scene.

But the jump itself over a 6ft-high barbed wire fence was actually performed by his friend, motorcycle shop owner Bud Elkins.

The earliest stunt on the list was Buster Keaton's in Steamboat Bill, Jr a 1928 movie. Keaton is left framed by a window after a building falls onhim.

Hazel Laking, of Choices Video, said: 'Films are driven by a good plot and convincing cast members, but it is often the actual stunts themselves that are talked about afterwards.

'This top 20 outlines a fantastic raft of superb stunts, so brilliantly executed we would believe they are conducted by the actors themselves every time.'
