Trivia

During the theatrical season of the later James Bond Film Spectre (2015) a special event was organized entitled "The Black Women of Bond". It starred Miss Moneypenny actress Naomie Harris from Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015) who is the first black British actress in the series, as well as star Halle Berry (Jinx from Die Another Day (2002)), Gloria Hendry (Rosie Carver from Live and Let Die (1973)) who was Bond's first ever African-American love-interest, and Trina Parks (Thumper from Diamonds Are Forever (1971)) who was the first ever major black Bond Girl. The event was hosted by the African American Film Critics Association at the California African American Museum as a tribute to the Black Women of Bond. Not present at the event were Nicaise Jean-Louis (One of Drax's Girls from Moonraker (1979)), Grace Jones (May Day from A View to a Kill (1985)), and Sylvana Henriques (The Jamaican Girl from On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)), the first ever Black Bond Girl.

One of my favorite James Bond movies
20 January 2009 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

I can't understand why some other people didn't like it. Actually this is the first Bond movie I've seen, it made a big impression on me and it still does. I found this movie being one of the most colorful Bond movies. There were few colorful villains, lots of action, some humor, and of course - Roger Moore who is my favorite James Bond. The story isn't typical for James Bond movies, it's more mystical this time, but I liked that. Of course nowadays when you watch this movie it may look cheesy in some scenes, but the action sequences where very exiting. Another reason why I liked this movie was the main theme song - Paul McCartney's Live and Let Die, which is yet my favorite James Bond theme.
