I don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but I recently heard that David Berglas was a consultant for "Octopussy" and four other Bond films.
In Octopussy he learned Roger Moore how to switch the Fabergé egg and he helped with the stunt in which a horsebox transforms into a plane.
Does anyone know what the four other movies were and what Mr. Berglas' share in it was?

The original "Casino Royale" was one.

I believe he helped with The Man with the Golden Gun.

I believe that wasn't the original "Casino Royale", but the spoof with Orson Welles etc.
Thanks for the link, Jeremy, but I believe the info over there isn't complete. Octopussy, for example, isn't listed.

Shizentai is correct. The original Casino Royale (unless we count the book) starred Peter Lorre and Barry Morse (as "Jimmy Bond").

That would be Barry Nelson who first played Bond in the 1954 US TV version. He was the first actor to portray Bond and so far, the only American.

David Berglas is the roulette croupier briefly seen with Orson Welles in "Casino Royale" (the 1967 version, of course). He conceived all the magic scene in the casino. He also conceived Christopher Lee's gun for "The Man with the Golden Gun", among other things...

David spends much time talking about this in his book, "The Mind & Magic Of David Berglas". Wonderful stuff. Also briefly discussed at Magic NewsWire during the Berglas Pod Cast.
