He was notable for his contributions in numerous films over a 30-year period including: The Heroes of Telemark, Kelly's Heroes, The Omen, A Bridge too Far, Superman, Superman II, Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and the James Bond films Goldfinger and On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Memorable appearances include his fight with Connery as the Mexican thug Capungo in Goldfinger. The fight ends with the character's electrocution in a bath when a sunlamp is thrown in by Bond, followed by his famous quip "Shocking…Positively shocking". Joint also took part in the fight scene on the top of a cable car in Where Eagles Dare and performed a jump from one cable car to another doubling for Richard Burton.
