Film biography

Whilst MQ and Miss Moneypenny are enjoying the horse racing at Royal Ascot, James Bond is introduced to Sir Godfrey Tibbett. He puzzlingly tells him that he has never seen a horse perform so well in the late stages of the race, suspecting foul play by Max Zorin.

Later, Tibbett accompanies Bond to Zorin's Chateau where he poses as Bond's chauffeur, although Tibbett gets more than he bargained for when he is made to carry a multitude of Bond's baggage to his room.

As night falls, the pair uncover Zorin's secret underground surgery room and warehouse.

However, when Zorin discovers Bonds true identity, he arranges for him and Tibbett to be killed. While Bond manages to thwart Zorin's attempt to kill him, Tibbett is not so lucky. He is killed by May Day when she grabs him from the back seat as the 1962 Rolls Royce drives through the car wash.


Tibbett have the personality of a seasoned English gentleman, he is very patient to Bond's over the top demands. Sir Godfrey possessed a gentle and friendly personality, which is very much unlike his position in British Intelligence.
