Celebrity guests at the 1990 JBIFC convention included: Desmond ('Q') Llewelyn, credit title designer Maurice Binder, ex-Bond girls Mollie Peters and Carole Ashby, production designers Syd Cain and Peter Lamont, and Oscar-winning special effects technician John Stears.
The Oddjob bowler sold by CHRISTIE'S was a special effects hat created by Oscar-winning SFX technician (the late) John Stears and his team for use in the production Goldfinger, and remains the only surviving Oddjob hat with an authentic link to the film, and was featured in recent years as a 'star' attraction in EON Productions' 'Bond, James Bond' exhibition at the Science Museum in London, and The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.
Ejector seat, homing beacon, machine guns, a rear bulletproof shield, rotating license plates, oil slick spreader, tire-shredding knockoffs - all of the gizmos devised by John Stears, the Oscar-winning special effects expert, are here, though, sadly, Q is no longer available to give lessons in their proper use.
