SPECTRE's number two
and one of their best agents, Emilio Largo (played by Adolfo Celi) was a man
with a plan who was determined not to be stopped. He lets nothing get in the way
of intention to blackmail the world, whilst still enjoying the finer things in
life. In Thunderball, he cares little for even those closest to him, going as
far as murdering the brother of his mistress, and torturing Domino when he finds
her to be untrustworthy. Finally thwarted by 007's relentlessness, Largo is one
of the more memorable Bond villains.
"Heat and cold, applied scientifically..."
cold, heartless bodyguard in Thunderball, Vargas (played by Philip Locke) plays
a small but significant part in SPECTRE's plan of world extortion. He keeps an
eye on the developing relationship between Bond and Domino, but when he feels
things are going too far, 007 helps him to get the point.
Largo: Of course, Vargas does not drink, does not smoke, does not make love. What do you do, Vargas?
