|“||My dear Colonel Bouvar. I don't think you should've opened that car door by yourself.||„|
|~ James Bond before fighting Bouvar.|
He was featured during the pre-credits sequence of the 1965 James Bond film Thunderball and was portrayed by stuntman Bob Simmons with Rose Alba standing in for the female scenes.
Bond and his French liason were present at the funeral of SPECTRE number 6, Colonel Jacques Bouvar, investigating his apparent death. Mlle. La Porte explains that the colonel passed away in his sleep. Bond laments that he did not have the opportunity to kill the SPECTRE operative personally, stating that he had murdered two of his colleagues. As the pair stand on the balcony outside the chapel, Bond observes Bouvar's widow behaving suspiciously. It is revealed that in an attempt to evade reprisals, Colonel Bouvar has faked his death and disguised himself as his own widow. Bond surprises him at his French château, where a fight ensues and ends with Bond breaking Bouvar's neck with a fire poker.
