Director Lewis Gilbert has passed, aged 97.

He directed three Bond films, among other; YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE, THE SPY WHO LOVED ME and MOONRAKER. 

An impressive career, including both ALFIE and EDUCATING RITA.

YOLT and TSWLM have very similar plots. And TOMORROW NEVER DIES (directed by Roger Spottiswoode) "recycled" the plot. 

Not a criticism, by the way, just an observation. YOLT, TSWLM and MOONRAKER are films I've enjoyed time and time again. 

ALFIE and EDUCATING RITA are also very good films!

Yeah, I've watched and enjoyed the films mentioned already at various points in my life, and to be honest still love them. He was a talent indeed

 R.I.P Mr Gilbert. Thanks for all the great movies!

The Spy Who Loved Me is my favourite of the Roger Moore Bond efforts. As Robbie points out, the plot has some striking similarities with You Only Live Twice, but I still think the film works really well (and I prefer it to You Only Live Twice).
