Octopussy (1983)
Spoiler Alert !

Some of these pictures and descriptions may give away plot details that you might not want to know before watching the film.
Octopussy Octopussy Octopussy
The cover of Bond's Indian spy contact is a snake charmer with a cobra in a basket, but he hates cobras and he lets it escape. This is not the last of the many stupid cliches about India in the movie. (Stuffed goat head for dinner followed by a bed of nails, anybody?) At least the Indian locations, especially the city of Udaipur, look wonderful. (And many restaurants in Udaipur have a free showing of Octopussy each night in appreciation.)

Later, Bond is hiding in the bushes from men who are hunting him when a large snake crawls over him. (A cobra, maybe?) He tells it to "Hiss off" because this Bond movie has some of the most painful puns imaginable.
