"Bond had always mistrusted short men. They grew up from childhood with an inferiority complex. All their lives, they would strive to be bigger than others who had teased them as a child. Napoleon had been short. And Hitler. It was the short men that created all the trouble in the world." -- Ian Fleming in "Goldfinger"
Hitler wasn't even short so this makes it even more ridiculous. Oh Mr. Bond, so tall, dark, and handsome... AKA the catalyst of a generic male lead Gary Stu.
