EXPANSION 007 WALK OF FAME ON THE SCHILTHORN
On the Schilthorn ridge, the existing 007 Walk of Fame was expanded with four information boards. A total of 13 boards currently line the path.
Participants from the James Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" have been immortalized on the Schilthorn ridge on a total of nine information boards. Four more have now been added to the world's first 007 Walk of Fame.
Stunt drivers, an angel of death and a designer
One of the new panels is represented by Erich Glavitza. In 1968, the Viennese was hired by the filmmakers as organizer and stunt driver for the stock car race in Lauterbrunnen. As the main stuntman for James Bond, Eddie Stacey was sure of his role and is now also given a place on the Schilthorn ridge. The Israeli Girl, Helena Ronee, one of Blofeld's angels of death, joins other Bond girls on the Walk of Fame. Terry Ackland-Snow was behind the scenes as a draftsman in the art department. He designed the Schilthorn building for the film and added the famous heliport.
All four information boards have been designed in the same style as the existing ones. Accordingly, each panel is provided with a photo, the signature, a handprint in steel and a personal message from the participant. The stars from the film leave their traces at the 007 film location.
