When Bond decides to have a gamble on the craps table, Saxby approves his credit at the casino when he sees the Slumber Inc envelope he is carrying. Later Saxby appears in a couple of other scenes throughout the film culminating with a badly executed assassin attempt on Willard Whyte as Bond attempts to rescue him.
Working for Willard Whyte in the casino and serving as his 'right hand' man, Saxby is actually a employee of Ernst Stavro Blofeld. While he appears to run the casino smoothly, he appears less successful at carrying out assassination missions, especially when he is easily shot by Felix Leiter and the CIA. §
