Just heard that Sir Roger Moore has sadly passed away. I'll be raising a glass (and an eyebrow ) to him tonight in the pub.
Our sincere condolences to his family.
I often get a bit of static from slightly older friends and family who say that Sean Connery was superior in the role of 007, But I was a bit too young to identify with those movies.The movies of the 70's(the bulk of my childhood) were the Roger Moore movies,hence, Sir Roger will always be James Bond to me.Sad to hear of his passing.
To be honest Brian I've enjoyed all the actors who've played Bond, but I do admit a preference for Roger. I loved him in the Saint and The Persuaders! so I just saw him playing Bond as a natural progression.
I'll always remember him as The Saint. Such a cool series, such a cool character. A nice tribute, Scoop :)
Oh yes, I'm a big fan of The Saint thanks to Sir Roger. I ended up getting all the original books in the day (and still got 'em!) prior to the advent of video and DVD.
