Battered piece of Bond movie costume has Antiques Roadshow expert ‘shaking with excitement’
A battered bowler hat from the James Bond film Goldfinger has been valued at up to £30,000 on the Antiques Roadshow. The steel-rimmed hat and weapon belonged to hitman Oddjob, played by Harold Sakata, in the 1964 film.
The owner said he was a big 007 fan as a child and his brother-in-law, who was a driver for Aston Martin during the filming of Goldfinger, asked Pinewood Studios if they had any memorabilia. The studio gave him Oddjob’s bowler hat but removed the metal rim.
