Live and Let Die

Bond places timers in Kananga's poppy fields which he uses for heroin. He attacks a Voodoo ceremony where a priest is about to kill Solitare with a snake bite but he shoots the priest and then Baron Samedi arrives. Bond shoots him in the head but it is only a dummy. The real Samedi arrives but Bond knocks him in a coffin filled with snakes and dies. Bond finds a way into Kananga's lair and kills him by putting a heavy duty air capsule into his mouth which makes him inflate and explode. Bond and Solitare take a train to New York but Kananga's henchman attacks but is thrown off the train.

Trivia: With so many black actors, most of whom were cast as villains in the film, producers wanted to write in another character, a comedy part, to draw attention away. New York actor Clifton James was cast in the role of "Sheriff J. W. Pepper" (he was so popular that he would turn up again in the next Bond film).

Question: Bond kills Kananga at the end by placing the bullet with the air pellet in his mouth which causes him to inflate and explode. But Bond had the bullet in his own mouth before when he was concealing it. Why didn't it kill him?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Bond just stored the bullet in his own mouth to hide it. As he puts it in Kananga's mouth he presumably pulls a pin, or forces Kananga to bite it.
