    Live and Let Die
    was a staple in my house growing up. In fact, my dad never quite got over the boat, he loved it so much. He has owned four boats since I've been alive, each one modeled after the one in LALD.

    Great story! :) I've been a big fan of the James Bond films for the longest time. Sean Connery is still my favorite Bond, but Roger Moore would rank a fairly close second for me. Live & Let Die remains my all-time favorite Bond film.

    It's been a thoroughly shitty day, waking up to the news of the awful atrocities that happened here in Manchester and now this news. So so sad. RIP all.

    I love 'The Spy Who Loved Me' and 'For Your Eyes Only', two of the best entries in the Bond series for me personally.
    Even later entries like 'Octopussy' were enjoyable, if not great films.
    He infused the character with so much class and charisma.

    This one hurts me as much as any celebrity death. Connery will always be my Bond, but Sir Roger is equally near and dear to me. Not many things manage to make me feel like a child at this point, but the classic Bond movies never disappoint. To a degree that none of their successors ever managed, both Connery and Moore shaped Bond to suit their own personalities. Thanks for all the smiles, Sir Roger.

    R.I.P. :( :( :(

    He was the first Bond I ever knew, and still my favorite. And of course he was in so many other movies and TV shows in every genre. Definitely one of my favorite actors, period. He will be missed, there will never be another like him.

    Charm is an underrated trait and Roger Moore had it in spades. He was a Bond for his era, breezy, suave and with a twinkle in his eye. Besides his entertaining run as 007 he also lit up the small screen in several series including THE PERSUADERS and, probably most beloved, THE SAINT. Outside his Bond pics he sited a trio of adventure films directed by Andrew V. MacLaglan as among his favorites of his own work. The mercenary action film THE WILD GEESE (with Richard Burton,Richard Harris and Hardy Kruger), the old school wartime tale THE SEA WOLVES and the quirky suspense film FFLOKES (NORTH SEA HIJACK in England)make a fine triple bill.In FFOLKES he had one of his favorite parts, playing a sort of anti-Bond, a counter-terrorism expert who loved cats, hated woman and was an insufferable ass. He's great in the role. GOLD and SHOUT AT THE DEVIL (with Lee Marvin) were also favorites. Check out his autobiography, MY WORD IS MY BOND, a great read ! His dedicated work for UNICEF earned him a knighthood.

    Rest In Peace.
