Roger Moore’s James Bond: appreciating the raised eyebrow

9 July 2017 6:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tim George Jul 10, 2017

An appreciation of the late Roger Moore, and his importance to the James Bond series...

It took me a long time to realise this but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense: Roger Moore is the most important actor to play James Bond. For while Sean Connery created the icon, Roger Moore is the reason why we are still trotting out to the cinema. This premise might sound like sacrilege.

The Grisly Facts of the Menendez Brothers' Murder Case, Nearly 28 Years Later

12 June 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

This year marks 28 years since Erik and Lyle Menendez brutally murdered their mother and father in the family's Southern California home, putting the wheels in motion for one of the most infamous trials of the 20th century. ABC drudged up the disturbing case for a primetime special, Truth and Lies: The Menéndez Brothers - American Sons, American Murderers, on Jan. 5, and Lifetime revived the story in June with the movie Menendez: Blood Brothers. On the off-chance that you're not familiar with the case, here's a brief overview of the very complicated crime. Who Are the Menendez Brothers? Joseph Lyle and Erik Galen, born in 1968 and 1970 respectively, were children of privilege. Their father José worked his way up the corporate ladder to become the CEO of the (now defunct) film studio Live Entertainment. Their mother, Mary Louise "Kitty" Andersen, was a stay-at-home mother. The family lived in Chicago and New Jersey »

Film Feature: HollywoodChicago.com Remembers Roger Moore as Bond, James Bond

31 May 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Shaken, Not Stirred.” “Bond, James Bond.” “Jaws.” All the Bond iconography was celebrated by the actor who portrayed him in the most films, and the longest time period. Sir Roger Moore brought a suave and quipping Jb to the filmgoers of the 1970s and ‘80s, so the film writers of HollywoodChicago.com – Jon Espino, Patrick McDonald and Spike Walters – bring essays in honor of their favorite Roger Moore Bond films.

Roger Moore Strikes a Familiar Pose as James Bond

Photo credit: Eon Productions

The roguish Moore portrayed Britain’s most famous spy with a air of sophistication and humor, eschewing the harder edge that the first Bond, Sean Connery, had established. From the first film, “Live and Let Die” (1972) to 13 years later with “A View to a Kill,” Moore defined Bond for a generation of 1970s and ‘80s filmgoers.

Pierce Brosnan Reflects on the 'Kindness and Humanity' of Late James Bond Star Roger Moore

30 May 2017 7:26 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Pierce Brosnan is paying tribute to fellow James Bond star, Roger Moore.

Following the 89-year-old actor's death last week, Brosnan penned an emotional essay for Variety, published on Tuesday, in which he opens up about Moore's impact on his own life and career, calling the star his "first real hero."

"Only on reflection do I see how much of an influence Roger Moore had on me as a young Irish immigrant lad from the banks of the River Boyne," Brosnan wrote. "I guess the combination of Bond and The Saint ignited a flame for fame in my heart of innocent wonder. I wanted to be up there. Roger as the Saint made me believe in his world. And before I knew it, the man who was the Saint transformed into James Bond, an even greater hero to me as a boy."

Sir Roger Moore Passes Away

24 May 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It was announced on Twitter yesterday that Sir Roger Moore, the third actor to play James Bond for Eon Productions, has passed away in Switzerland after losing a battle with cancer. According to his family, there will be a private memorial held in Monaco.

Source: Twitter

Sir Roger Moore was the first James Bond I was exposed to. While I was aware of Sean Connery's work as Bond, being that there were more Roger Moore Bond films out when I was a kid meant that most replays of Bond movies on television were of Roger Moore's version of the character. At the time, I wasn't much of a fan because the films felt silly. I didn't realize until growing up that that was the mood that Roger Moore was trying to create with those films. Here is a quote from Mr. Moore explaining his thoughts on James Bond.

Daniel Craig, Pierce Brosnan, Sean Connery Pay Tribute to ‘Magnificent Bond’ Roger Moore

24 May 2017 3:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Current James Bond star Daniel Craig and predecessors Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan have added their own tributes to Roger Moore, whose death after a short battle with cancer was announced Tuesday. Brosnan called Moore “a magnificent Bond,” while Craig declared: “Nobody does it better,” a reference to the title track from one of Moore’s most popular outings as the suave secret agent, 1977’s “The Spy Who Loved Me.”

Connery, who despite originating the role of Bond is three years younger than Moore, issued an official statement through his publicist. The statement read: “I was very sad to hear of Roger’s passing. We had an unusually long relationship by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter. I will miss him.”

Both Craig and Brosnan took to Instagram to post images of themselves alongside Moore and to express their feelings at his passing. On the official 007 Instagram page, »

How Roger Moore Made the Role of James Bond His Own

24 May 2017 2:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Few actors have come across quite so invincible onscreen as Roger Moore, the James Bond star who dodged death by sharks (“Live and Let Die”), yo-yo buzzsaw (“Octopussy”), space lasers (“Moonraker”) and a demented Christopher Walken (“A View to a Kill”), barely so much as creasing his tuxedo in the process.

Moore played 007 in seven movies over the course of a dozen years, dodging more bullets — golden and otherwise — than we could possibly count. But sooner or later, fate was sure to catch up with the debonair star. All men are mortal, of course, but not so Bond, who’s been saving the world since 1962 (“Dr. No”), and with his passing, Moore became the first big-screen Bond to leave us.

He was actually the third star to play the part, taking over the role from Sean Connery in 1973, and unlike Australian model George Lazenby (who played 007 just once, in “On »

James Bond Actors Pay Tribute to Sir Roger Moore

23 May 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The world lost a legend today, as Sir Roger Moore, the man who played 007 in seven James Bond movies, passed away after losing a battle with cancer. Moore, who was 89 years old, was the man who played the character for the longest and brought a very distinct style to the role of Bond. Now, his fellow James Bond stars have released statements, paying tribute to the late actor.

Roger Moore famously took over the lead role in the James Bond franchise following Sean Connery's departure once he completed Diamonds are Forever. Despite Connery's mixed feelings toward the producers of the franchise, he never harbored ill will for Roger Moore and released a statement to Entertainment Weekly following the news of his passing. Here's what he had to say.

"I was very sad to hear of Roger's passing. We had an unusually long relationship, by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter. »

Poll: What’s Your Favorite Roger Moore Bond Film?

23 May 2017 2:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Roger Moore, known for his portrayal of James Bond in seven movies over the course of more than a decade, has died at the age of 89 after a short battle with cancer.

In the wake of the news, fans are looking back at his turns at 007, which all started after Moore took over for Sean Connery in 1973’s “Live and Let Die.” The actor’s more humorous take would resonate with even the most loyal of Connery fans — and helped revive the franchise at the box office.

He would next appear in 1974’s “The Man With the Golden Gun” and then in 1977’s “The Spy Who Loved Me,” which rocked Bond into blockbuster status with $185.4 million worldwide. Audiences continued to buy tickets, and heap praise on Moore, for “Moonraker” and “For Your Eyes Only.”

His last two films were “Octopussy” and “A View to Kill,” after which he retired his license to kill. »

Roger Moore Remembered: How His Light Touch Made Him the Most Enduring Bond

23 May 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The passing of Sir Roger Moore at 89 marks the first James Bond to do so. And the response from one of my sons was telling: “James Bond can’t die — he’s immortal.”

That sentiment will be shared by many Bond fans, particularly the generation that grew up with Moore in the ’70s and ’80s. Moore, who embraced the lighter side of Ian Fleming’s superspy, was also the most enduring, making a record seven franchise movies: “Live And Let Die” (1973), “The Man With The Golden Gun” (1974), “The Spy Who Loved Me” (1977), “Moonraker” (1979), “For Your Eyes Only” (1981), “Octopussy” (1983), and “A View To A Kill (1985).”

While Sean Connery defined Bond as uber-cool and free-spirited (he enjoyed killing as much as shagging), Moore redefined him as devil may care to disarm the baddies. The first Bond to hail from London, Moore’s Bond wasn’t in it for the spying, he was »
