The Bond I grew up with...though I am not really sure which bond I prefer, after grewing up with Roger Moore as bond, in my late teens I started to watch Sean Connery, and I think I prefered him as the more cold dangerous bond, that said..Roger more´s more humourus style and playboy style was great for the franchise, one of my favourites was "four your eyes only"

I also has fond memories of the series "The persuaders" a dynamite duo with Tony Curtis, some great series soundtrack intro and nice cars, nice ladies etc :)..a cool series.

I wish we could have seen more of him acting other larger roles though.

I guess there is only good rumours in the wake of the life of Roger Moore, who also was involved in childrens right and a UNICEF ambassador.
Farewell mister "Bond"

as a kid, in my eyes, Roger was always the real Bond, Connery was the laid back guy.

My favourite was A View To A Kill, my first Bond movie I ever saw at the cinema when I was a kid. The music, the girls (I was 14 after all!), and Christopher Walken as an awesome villain.

RIP, a sad loss :-(

that too? funny...I always think of the movie from 1982, with Anthony Andrews, sam neil, and a little dwarf called John Rhys-Davies :)
Guess we over here were brainwashed on that series...here´s what sam neil says about that movie airing so much in sweden...
"The Swedes, bless 'em, prove again, while amongst the most rational of people, once a year they ARE crazy - all watching Ivanhoe [1982]"

I think that Sam Neil could have jumped in on the role as bond some time ago, He´s probably to oldat this time though.


The persuaders... now there is a theme :)

A great theme, I just love it..and it still to this day is good.

I remember watching James Bond with Roger Moore on pirated VHS behind the iron curtain back in the 80's. Felt great to see somebody who dares opposing the Soviets. RIP.

Wow, talk about history. I have an old 35mm Film storage can in the Kitchen, now use it for recycled glass.
Really wish we found it with the old Soviet propaganda films intact, but alas... Some relatives found it outside the Russian embassy.
Huge can, more like a bucket, could store up to 8 100' rolls or so...

THIS ONE IS FOR Mr. BOWIE

Quote: Obit in The Times U.k.

'When I meet the Italian actress Luisa Mattioli who became my wife,

Lusia could not speak ANY english, and I could not speak ANY Italian.

With my to-ing & fro-ing from movies sets, in the first two years of

our marriage, I am sure she thought I was a travelling Bed Salesman? ' (L.O.L)



(Also a fantastic Unicef ambassador, a very funny man)

One thing I liked about him was that he didn't take himself too seriously, was able to poke a little fun at himself. I miss the times when modesty and little self-deprecation was considered a good thing.
