Toshiyuki "Harold" Sakata won an Olympic silver medal in light-heavyweight weighlifting at London 1948, where he competed for the United States. But he found much greater fame when, in 1964, he was given the role of Oddjob in the James Bond movie Goldfinger where he was bodyguard to the villain Auric Goldfinger. His sharpened, steel-brimmed bowler hat became a famous and much-parodied trademark of the Bond series. Sakata appeared in several other movies in similar roles and took on "Oddjob" as an informal middle name.
