Like many of you, growing up, Roger Moore
was my Bond. I started with THE SPY WHO
LOVED ME at age 4 and have been a fan of
the franchise ever since.
FOR YOUR EYES ONLY still ranks in my top 5
of the series.

I went back and saw him in THE SAINT and
really enjoyed FFOLKES.

RIP Mr. MOORE

Guys? It's Sir Roger, not "Mr. Moore".

Current James Bond Daniel Craig plus predecessors Sean Connery & Pierce Brosnan added their own tributes to Sir Roger... Brosnan called him “a magnificent Bond,” while Craig wrote: “Nobody does it better.”

Nice anecdote doing the viral rounds (recounted here in the Independent newspaper): LINK

I was really saddened by this. He was such a nice, humble man. If you ever get a chance, it's worthwhile listening to the commentaries he did for all his Bond movies on the dvd collection. Either he had a good memory for names, or he made sure to prepare properly for each one. Because he was always able to name everyboy involved in making the scenes work. Not just the actors but all the production folk, stunt drivers, skiers etc He wanted them all to get their due. And he was always so appreciative of everybody that worked on his Bond movies.

As for his Bond era. I always wished both he and Dalton has started earlier. I would have loved to have seen Moore in OHMSS and Diamonds Are Forever. I think he could have performed those particular movies better than Lazenby and Connery. Plus I really would have liked to have seen Dalton facing off against Walken in View to a Kill.

But I still enjoy them all as is. So R.I.P Sir Roger. And thanks for all the great memories in making my childhood that bit more fun!

Those who created many of my childhood memories are fading away......sigh.

I saw Sir Roger Moore for the first time in The Man with the Golden Gun. That is still my favorite Bond movie.

Those two photos of Brosnan and Craig with Sir Roger speak volumes. I like Brosnan as an actor and he seems like a nice guy but he's too "pretty" for the Bond role. While I had my doubts with Craig he did a phenomenal job in Casino Royale, second only to Connery. The rest of the movies weren't as good but it wasn't his fault, he's proven that. Sir Roger was also of the "pretty boy" type but I still enjoyed his movies when I was a kid. 

RIP

Joe Staton has posted on Facebook that Roger Moore was an influence on his design and approach to E-Man.

Quite saddened by his passing.
My first Bond movie was "Octopussy".
My favorite Roger Moore's movie is "Ffolkes".

Picked up the first two seasons of THE SAINT in commemoration. Watched two episodes so far. (Amazing how deeply ingrained in my memory are the opening and closing credits!)

Doesn't seem like marathon material, but I will be dipping in from time to time as the mood comes upon me.

Documentary on Sir Roger - "A Matter Of Class" - pretty much sums up his contributions as an actor, told by the actor himself...

He was my introduction to James Bond - LIVE AND LET DIE and THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN on TV, and THE SPY WHO LOVED ME was the first Bond film I saw in the theater.

RIP
