James Bond (Roger Moore) uses a Philips 660 Voice Recorder in the movie A View To A Kill (1985).

When Bond and Godfrey Tibbett (Patrick Macnee) enter the suite in Château de Chantilly, Bond plays a mini cassette with a pre-recorded conversation between him and Tibbett, to fool the henchman listening in via audio bugs in the room. Later, Bond plays a tape of him snoring, to make it seem like he is sleeping, while actually he is snooping around Zorin's estate.

The Philips 660 is a beautiful, very sleek device, extremely thin, it just fits one mini tape. In the movie, a Philips LFH0006 mini cassette is used. The 660 can also play the recording via a built-in speaker.

The Philips 660 is clearly seen in the film and is one of many Philips items in A View To A Kill: Bond uses a Philishave electric shaver which doubles as a bug detector; Zorin uses a Philips computer with Philips LDH6200 14" Color Monitor; Q uses the same model monitor; Bond and Pola Ivanova (Fiona Fullerton) listen to a Philips UF-I 90 cassette tape on a Philips D8734 Boombox sound system.

In For Your Eyes Only, another Philips dictaphone was used, the Philips LFH195.
