    Yes, it’s a vintage Japanese movie from the mid 1960s. The director is a bit more famous for Jidaigeki (samurai films). The screen play was written by Shinobu Hashimoto, who is also famous for work on Jidaigeki, such as Rashomon, Seven Samurai, etc… This film is about the corruption and politics of the medical world. It is based on the 1965 novel by Toyoko Yamasaki. This story has been adapted for film and TV several times.

    Hint: The word “tower” is used in title of the film in English.

    I guess this one isn’t ringing any bells, either. So, some final hints:
    Directed by Satsuo Yamamoto
    Stars: Eijirô Tôno and Takahiro Tamura, etc…

    Well, that looks like Sean Connery, so I'd venture it's Moonraker, EXCEPT that Moonraker starred Roger Moore as Bond.

    I think he stole a moon buggy in Diamonds Are Forever, but I thought he was 40 by then, and going pretty grey already.

    Connery wore a hairpiece in every Bond film, not that it matters. This is acting after all and it’s all pretend anyway.
