Comment: Not my favorite Bond. See list Vox: Sir Roger Moore is dead at 89. His James Bond was a secret comedic genius.Moore was 007 at his most quintessential, during the franchise’s most ridiculous era
Moore’s Bond era was perhaps its most cheekily ridiculous; as a series that had started out as tongue-in-cheek satire, it had rapidly trended toward bigger action scenes, over-the-top gadgets, and showboating self-parody. Moore’s primary job was to merge Bond’s charm with his rougher, beefier side through the franchise’s many fight scenes
On the positive side, we were given the cutest Bond girl in Britt Ekland (Man with the Golden Gun)

Britt Ekland as Mary Goodnight: Bond's assistant. Described by the critic of The Sunday Mirror as being "an astoundingly stupid blonde British agent"




  1. My dear cousin, Lila, died last night of cancer

  2. My condolences on your loss.

    I once saw "Octopussy" in German, and laughed at all the "wrong" times because I didn't get the puns in German, but I was able to translate things back into English to get the puns in the original script. Good times!
