Roger Moore passed away the other day.
I’m not one to make a big deal out of celebrities’ passing but it was Roger Moore who introduced me to the world of 007 and his licence to kill in the 1977 movie The Spy Who Loved Me.
Having seen the movie a hundred billion times as it repeated itself on HBO so many years ago, it’ll always be first movie I think of when I’m feeling shaken but not stirred.
Maybe not everyone’s favorite Bond, maybe not the absolute best of the series, but Roger Moore was my first Bond, James Bond. And he always will be.
One thought on “Good Bye to the First”
No, he wasn’t my favorite, but he was good at being Bond. I thought he did a pretty good job as ‘The Saint”, Simon Templar too.
