The bullet appears to be from Francisco Scaramanga (Christopher Lee), also called "The Man with the Golden Gun," the world's best and, at $1 million a hit, best-paid assassin.
Traveling to Macao to confront the man who made the bullet, Bond is led to Andrea Anders (Maud Adams), Scaramanga's lover, and from there to a Hong Kong nightclub where he sees Scaramanga murder a scientist who has just invented a 95% efficient solar power cell.
Teaming up with a beautiful and thoroughly ditzy agent named Mary Goodnight (Britt Ekland) and a local police detective (Soon-Tek Oh), Bond investigates a multimillionaire tycoon named Hai Fat (Richard Loo), who intends to use the generator to create a global monopoly on electricity.
Things go slightly awry, however, when Scaramanga and his vertically-challenged assistant Nick Nack (Herve Villechaize) doublecross Hai Fat, murder him and Andrea, and steal the power cell (and Goodnight along with it)!
Now, Bond must team with his old "friend" Sheriff J.W. Pepper (James Clifton) to battle karate black-belts, Hong Kong policemen, sumo wrestlers, and knife-toting midgets to rescue Goodnight and prevent Scaramanga from cornering the worldwide energy market...
