The James Bond improvised “flame thrower” – what’s your favourite Bond improvised weapon?

Do you remember this  scene from one of the old James Bond movies?

Bond had to get rid of some threat – a poison spider or snake  (if I recall) and he used a spray can and his cigar to create an improvised flame thrower.

For some reason this scene really “stayed with me” – even decades later.


What made me think of this scene was hearing on the radio this morning about a man in real life  who tried to use a spray can and a lighter to get rid of a spider in the laundry.


The result: he burned down his laundry.

I’m guessing he may have always wanted to re-enact this Bond scene and this was his chance!


Anyway, back to Bond.
