Film biography

A gunsmith who lives in Macau, Lazar makes bullets for Scaramanga's Golden Gun and has them delivered to his mistress, Andrea Anders to a casino and is paid in cash. One day, James Bond accidentally interrupts a woman and children eating, to be met by Lazar who warmly takes him inside and knows of Bond's reputation, hoping to make some firearm for him. Inside, he shows Bond a rifle for a client who lost two fingers with the trigger housed inside the butt. For five-fingered people such as Bond, the rifle is off balance, the shot being an inch too low. He also knows Bond carries a Walther PPK, and remarks that he considers mass production to make crummy products, whereas he says his shop is reputed to have handmade firearms of his fine craftsmanship. Bond manages to intimidate Lazar into revealing his business relationship with Scaramanga by aiming the special rifle at his groin, but when Lazar hesitiates, Bond fires. However, the shot misses, going between Lazar's legs. This sufficiently forces Lazar into revealing he had just created a box of golden bullets for Scaramanga, but never met him in person due to his secretive nature. Bond then tails Lazar to the Casino, where Lazar, now dressed in a suit and tie to look like a gambler, goes to a Mahjoig table and deposits the box of golden bullets into a bucket, which was received by Andrea, who in turn put a hunk of cash into the bucket to pay Lazar. Bond proceeded to turn his attention of tailing Andrea. Lazar is not seen after that, although it is assumed he resumed his craftmanship. He later lost a big client when Scaramanga was killed by Bond, thus making his box of golden bullets his final business deal with the famous assassin.
