Sir Roger Moore, who is most famous for his role ‘James Bond’ died at the Age of 89, on Tuesday 23rd May 2017 in Switzerland following a short battle with cancer. Roger George Moore was born in Stockwell, south London on 14 October 1927. He is t the son of a policeman, he is no doubt the longest serving and the best actor in the role ‘James Bond’, and his Bond films are the most commercially successful of the franchise.
Sir Roger had appeared in several western TV series before his breakthrough in 1962, when he has cast as the ‘dashing Simon Templar’ aka ‘The Saint’, by impresario lew Grade in a television adaptation of the Leslie Charteris stories. Here are ten (10) Sir Roger Moore’s Bond films we will never forget.
- Live and Let Die (1973) – Live and Let Die launched Roger’s time as James Bond, the film can be criticized for being off-color, but we haven’t been treated to a better boat chase like the one in ‘Live and Let Die boat chase’.
- The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) – One iconic scene identified with ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’, is the car chase scene. It is probably the best Moor’s film. The Lotus Esprit, remember? The submarine car has titanic tricks up its sleeve.
- Octopussy (1983) – Octopussy is the only James bond series where James Bond met his match, the saw fight and the car versus train scene are just exhilarating, `bond literally caught up with the train in a car.
- Moonraker (1979) – Moonraker features another fantastic Amazon boat chase, Jaws and the unique space laser fight.
- The Man With the Golden Gun (1974) fun house duel – The last on the list but not the least, ‘The fun house duel between James Bond and Francisco Scaramanga’ although it has been labeled the weakest of all James Bond series, the Dinner party scene is still memorable
