DYR meets Richard 'Jaws' Kiel

A few weekends ago, I was lucky enough to get the chance to rub shoulders (well, elbow to shoulder) with one of the greatest Bond baddies of all time - Jaws! There was no mistaking him, as his 7ft 2in frame dwarfed all the other fans assembled to meet the man who played him, Richard Kiel, at the Vintage Magazine Shop in Soho, London. This Aladdin's cave of retro gems to buy was the perfect place for a meet and greet. And very nice he was, too. Nothing like the baddie-turned-goodie he played in The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker in the 70s. 

I took the opportunity to bring back a little souvenir from my latest jolly, and now one lucky DYR user will win a signed colour print of Jaws in Moonraker (see it in my picture above), plus a new pack of Quantum Of Solace playing cards. Simply recommend DYR to friends and family to be with a chance. All participants are submitted into a free draw. The winner will be drawn 8th January 2009.
