'The Three Blind Mice'
These are a trio of supposedly blind
beggars in Kingston, Jamaica, who, in reality, are paid assassins working for
Dr. No. It is they who murder British agent Strangways and his secretary Miss
Trueblood and set into motion the assignment, which brings 007 to the island.
The 'blind men' are first seen over the film's main titles accompanied by an
orchestration of the song 'Three Blind Mice'. They make their final appearance
in a chase sequence during which they use the hearse they are driving to try
to force 007's car over a cliff. Bond turns the tables and the would-be assassins
take the plunge, causing Bond to remark casually, 'I think they were on their
way to a funeral'.
